Like vultures hovering over their next meal, the friends and relatives of the “late” John Leslie gather for the reading of his last will and testament. Actually, it’s a video which features vignettes of sexual infidelitiesby family members and associates. The result is a shot-on-video feature that is slow on story but loaded with sex.
All couplings are good (lusty action by Amber Lynn and Peter North, Elie Rio and Tom Byron, Jacqueline Lorians and Joey Silvera, Lorians and Billy Dee, Lorians and North), and feature some kink (North shoots in a champagne glass before Lorians drinks from it: Frank James comes on a tray of finger sandwiches from which Shanna McCullough nibbles) and some love (Leslie and Summers in a moment of vulnerability). Summers is eventually named heiress to the Leslie fortune, sending everyone else into a jealous rage, and Summers leaves to unite with her lover. The ending has a twist that I won’t spoil here.
Director Jerome Bronson does well with writer Will Kelly’s script. But there are too many lives to cover here. Less people and more dialogue would have made the first part of this tape move faster. As it stands, the sex carries the feature up until the reading of the will. With a weaker cast this might not have worked. But everyone (especially Byron and McCullough) really perform well.
