The filmís conceit is that only three of its five stories are true; the discís last chapter reveals which are fact and which fiction. (I got three right.) The idea works because the storytellers are porn stars and therefore just about anything seems possible. A couple having sex on a pool table in a crowded bar? A porn star screwing the security guard after signing autographs in a video store? Why not? If we believe this film, the porn-star stereotype was honestly come by; nothing in this film is so far out that it strains credulity.
The scene that comes closest to doing so, however, is the filmís least appealing scene. As a kind of present for her boyfriend, a girl hires a man to invade their apartment. When the couple arrives, the man ties up the boyfriend and screws the girl. Itís the kind of scene that has you reminding yourself that itís just a bit of fantasy role-playingóbecause the situation is too uncomfortable to take straight.
The other scenes are more typically porno, and a couple of them arenít bad. The barroom scene benefits from the set up, Tabitha Sternís looks and her lovely tits, as well as some good photography. (All the scenes, in fact, are well photographed.) And the last scene, though the story is a little bizarre (Heather Lynnís boyfriend likes to hide in the trunk of their car while she gets it on with a guy in the backseat), features some okay sex and a concluding cumshot that Heather swallows.
Daytonís scene starts well, but fizzles at the end. After an argument with her boyfriend, she comes home to find a bath drawn, candles lit, and rose petals spilled over everything. What sets up as a romantic sexual encounter, however, ends with Dayton shoving a crystal dildo into her ass while the guy watches, stroking himself. If thatís the porn version of romance, no wonder porn contains so little of it.
The problem with ďBelieve It or Not 2Ē is not that only three of the stories are true, but that only two of them are particularly good, and even the good ones are too short. Still, I applaud Paul Thomas for giving us a little imagination with our porn; I just wish heíd given us a little more porn along with it.
The discís bonus features include a sub-chapters menu, previews, and a photo gallery, as well as three ďBonus RoomsĒ that include seven additional scenes from other films: two girl/girl, two anal, and three featuring Cassidey: two FFM threesomes and a girl/girl. A girl/girl scene in the feature would have been nice, especially if turned out to be true!
