Adultery surprises on a couple of levels – the main one being the unusual use of porn clichés by screenwriter Michael Ellis, who’s usually among the best. That director Spinelli rises above the material is not surprising; when Cheri Taylor rejects Marc Wallice and he retorts “you know you want it,” the sex scene is so good that you forget the cliché.
Wallice plays best friend to medical student Scott Irish, home for a holiday. After pontificating on his lust for Irish’s mo (Ona Zee), he gets his buddy laid with Sharon Kane. But Wallice torments Zee and his lust turns to reality, just before huggy Mike Horner walks in. Penance for this stint with a prostitute (Nina Hartley), maybe?
The sex scenes range from lukewarm to lusty, but Mark Wallice turns in a career performance as the slightly bent friend. Everyone else acts well and Spinelli’s fluid use of the camera, a trademark is in evidence. A nice shot of the busty Cheri Taylor graces the box cover, so retailers should take note. Not one of Spinelli’s best, but better than the industry norm.
