Title: Cheating
Released by: Vivid Wave

If you were to ask an adult film director to come up with a movie called "Cheating", he or she would probably line up a few VERY fresh faces (as in 18-21) and come up with a movie about a couple of college girls who screw to get the answers to their finals. After all, that’s what people think cheating is all about nowadays. That’s what the subject of all of these mainstream movies are about. They all have to do with school and tests.

Fortunately this particular movie was done in 1994. Back then, cheating had nothing to do with school or exams, and EVERYTHING to do with extramarital affairs. And the key players in this movie certainly didn’t look like they just came out of high school!

The key question to ask about this movie isn’t who’s fooling around. The real question is who ISN’T fooling around on their significant other… and with WHOM. No doubt by the end of the movie the answer will surprise you.

The movie focuses around a group of friends preparing for a surprise birthday party. The first couple we see are Ashlyn Gere and Steven St. Croix. All is not perfect in this "blessed union", and we learn through flashbacks that Ashlyn is actually screwing around with construction worker Colt Steele. Just remembering it makes Ashlyn horny, and soon she’s getting some oral from her "hubby". She’s about to return the favor, but then they get a call. It’s the lovely Leena, and she just wants to make sure they’re going to be at the party… but to be sure to be late. Okay, they will, back to the screwing. Ashlyn goes through some oral as she remembers her steamy sex session with Colt on the construction site.

Once done, we find out that Ashlyn wants more out of Colt besides sex. She wants to leave her husband, but Colt doesn’t want that. He’s happy with his occasional piece of ass. She even drops the "I love you" bomb, which doesn’t even faze him.

Okay, back to the present. Leena is talking with her friend Alex Jordan about guys "screwing up everything". Alex asks if Leena’s having a problem with her hubby (Colt). Of course she is, but she won’t admit it. She’s just brooding about a lot of things. In comes Alex’s husband, Nick East, and he forgot to pick something up at the store. Alex is more than happy to go get it, which gives Nick and Leena a chance to go at it for a while in the dining room.

Oh, but just before Nick can get off, they see Alex coming back, and they have to hurry up and get dressed. Coitus Interruptus in an adult movie? Say it ain’t so!

A little while later, Jonathan Morgan shows up with his new bride, Vanessa Angel. She’s clearly the youngest in this group of A-list stars. While Alex is jawing away with the newlyweds, Leena sneaks away to the bathroom to get more "Vitamin C" from Nick. She teases him while he’s in the shower, then goes down on him, then he steps out for a little wet and wild doggie action over the toilet. Just as she climaxes… they hear his wife calling from the other room. That’s twice now that Nick gets Leena off but he can’t pop his load.

Meanwhile, Jonathan gives Vanessa a quick oral present in the dining room. Alex catches them in the act, but really doesn’t do anything other than smile and watches a bit before telling them that the others are in the living room. While they’re waiting for the others, Colt is all by himself thinking about the argument he had with his wife (Leena) about screwing Ashlyn. He’s just as cold and aloof with his wife as he is with Ashlyn. Damn, that a cold SOB!

Just then a car pulls up… it’s Steven and birthday girl Ashlyn!

So they mingle, and the girls get together to swap husband complaints. Alex claims that Nick isn’t interested in sex, which Leena knows isn’t true. Ashlyn says that all men are cheating pigs. Leena quietly blurts out that men aren’t the only ones fooling around, which catches everyone’s attention. Vanessa still plays the naïve bride and quickly escapes to go skinny-dipping in the pool.

Uh-oh… Steven is poolside, and watching her swimming naked brings up a little poolside flashback between him and… well I won’t say who because it would give away the final twist of the movie. But somehow that brings him to put the moves on Vanessa. They go at it right on the edge of the pool. Hey, whatever happened to that thing about loving your husband and never fooling around? Not really a smart move either, because now Ashlyn is watching her husband cheat… along with the other ladies.

Nick tries to get some more from Leena in the kitchen. He gives her a little ice cube oral before Jonathan comes in. That’s 0 for 3 for Nick! It’s just not his night, is it?

Meanwhile Colt is still brooding someplace, and he remembers the last time he and Ashlyn went at it. You see, he remembered Ashlyn’s demand for something more than just the two of them banging away. He brought his buddy Gerry Pike along. Then he dropped his little emotional bomb… he never was in love with her. Ashlyn tries to cover up her feelings, but you can tell she was hurt by that news. She responds by forcefully going at it with both of them in a way that is uniquely hers.

Now we go back to the present time, and it’s Ashlyn’s turn to brood. She points Jonathan to where his not-so-faithful bride was last seen…

Meanwhile Vanessa’s in the living room, crying because she just did the one thing that she said she would never do. Alex tries to comfort her, and ends up engaged in a three-way lesbian scene with a very dominant Ashlyn. Everyone gets off at least once, and while Alex does Vanessa with a strap-on, Ashlyn gets dressed and leaves.

I suppose this scene was only there to give Alex some action, but it’s strange because she’s the only one who otherwise isn’t screwing one of the guys… not even her husband.

Where did Ashlyn go, you wonder? Well off to find Jonathan. After all, she saw her husband cheat with Vanessa… now it’s her turn with Vanessa’s husband. She goes down on him like a certain White House intern of the time. And thus we have Jonathan’s only personal action for the night.

But what’s this? Just a few feet away we have Leena and Nick going at it in and on Ashlyn’s car! And this time nothing stops them from doing EVERYTHING they wanted to. She even lets him do her in the ass before finally blowing his load. And it’s only THEN that they realize that they’re out in the open and they’re bare-ass nekkid! Well gee… how did THAT happen?

Well now that everyone’s gotten off at least ONCE (some much more than others), it’s time for the big confrontation. Time for everyone to get his or her infidelities out in the open! And this is where our big surprise comes in. I won’t say what it is, but it certainly raises a few eyebrows.

Now comes the extras… and Vivid’s Wave DVDs come packed with extra stuff. They have this thing called "Int. Tel. Sex", which I have no idea what it’s supposed to represent. All I know is that when you click on certain symbols in a picture, you get to see a certain sex scene from other Vivid movies. They also have a bio on all of the favorite Vivid women of the time… none of them were in this movie, though.

Turn the DVD over (yes, this is a dual-sided DVD) and you have some more sex scenes, this time grouped off into six more Vivid ladies (who ALSO did not appear in the movie), and three generic categories. There are a total of 27 sex scenes on this side. There’s no drama here, of course. Just pure sex.

The movie is good in that there are plenty of sex scenes. Director Paul Thomas made sure everyone got laid at least once, and that you didn’t have any lengthy dry spells before the next sex scene. I didn’t particularly care about the "mutual" flashbacks that were implied between Colt and Ashlyn, and between Colt and Leena. Colt would start a flashback, and then it would fade to either Ashlyn or Leena (depending on whom the flashback was with) as if they were thinking the same thing at just the same time. Sorry, but if these people were such good mind-readers, then there really would be no need for secrets, would there? No phony pleasantries, no pretenses, just have everyone nekkid and screwing.

I only have one technical problem to report about this DVD… on the main menu of Side A there’s a section called "Previews". You click on it and it tells you to flip the DVD over to Side B. But there’s nothing on Side B to indicate there are any previews. You would think that a company like Vivid, which sinks so much time and attention into a visual presentation like this, would pick on that, huh?

All in all the DVD’s pretty good, and depending on where you look, you can probably get it under $10. If you’re interested in A-list actors and actresses with plenty of sex scenes, then this DVD is a pretty good buy.
