Flipside: A Backdoor Adventure

Studio: Cal Vista Classic (VCX)

Stars: Jose Duval, Tasha Voux, Millie Sutton, Lotta Topp, Diane Balsam, Patrice Trudean, Jerry Kane, Johnny Nineteen

Running time: 1 hour 28 minutes (feature)

The problem with "classic" is that it's used to describe anything shot on film before around 1990, whether it's memorable or not. This is one of those movies I doubt anyone ever heard of nor remembers if they saw it. The only "name" I recognize is Lotta Topp, and the scene I saw her in elsewhere comes from this movie. But it's from 1985 and it's a "feature" so it fits.

There's a thread of a plot but I have no idea what it is, and I don't care. Like most porn features, it's really just a collection of sex scenes with a little uninteresting dialog to connect them somehow. I think it's about a guy trying to get his buddy laid. Regardless, I'll spare everyone the tedious recap and go with what we came for.

Please note that I can't name most of the performers because there's no way to match names and faces in the film.

Scene 1 begins with a guy and a girl fucking on a sofa. She's a pretty burnette with longish hair and medium sized natural boobs. Stars with head, then reverse cowgirl, more cock-sucking, then her bent over while he fingers and tongues her while jacking hiimself off, then finishes with cowgirl.

Scene 2 is two girls, the brunette from the previous scene and a small-breasted blonde. They're sitting on the same sofa, chatting and drinking wine, and then the clothes come off, then standard old-style lesbo faire: tongue-on-cunt action with almost nothing else except a little kiss at the end.

Scene 3 is something I haven't seen before--guy in a car picks up a whore on the street and she gives him blowjob by flashlight while he's driving. It's very dark and there's not much to see, but at least it's not the same-old-same.

Scene 4 another girl--might have been the previous scene, I'm not sure. Curly dark hair, small breasts. She gets double-teamed--doggie style by one guy while sucking another guy's cock. Then the guy in back takes her anally.

Scene 5 Lotta Topp is fucked by Josey Duval. Topp is an soft-bodied redhead with huge natural breasts and arguably the largest clit in porn. She gets eaten out by him, then sucks him off. If you like big boobs or big clits, it's an excellent scene. Lotta looks like truly enjoys it.

Scene 6 the girl from Scene 4 is back, this time with Josey Duval and one of the younger guys. This one ends with a vaginal/anal DP.

Special Features: The "legendary tribute" is a series of short clips, mostly of faces, from a variety of old porn movies presumably in the VCX catalog. It's interesting if you like seeing and recognizing old performers, but there's not enough action to make it interesting on an erotic level. The "Only the Best" is a tie-in to Jim Holliday's book, and he talks about what he thinks is the hottest scene ever filmed, followed by a clip. "Vintage Trailers" are just that--trailers for other titles presumably available from VCX, and the "bonus scenes" are single scenes from four "classic" movies. Classic in this case being circa 1980.

Production values: It's a better transfer than some that I've seen: I'm not sure if they went directly from film to digital, or whether they got a good tape. The quality is still so-so, however. It's acceptable on my standard def TV, but looks like shit played on my computer. The film is grainy and the image a tad soft.

The audio is worse. You can hear the dialog, but it's overmodulated and annoying to listen do, and you get the standard 1980s bad porn music bed to boot. This one's best viewed with the sound off.

Final verdict: It's a mediocre movie. I like Lotta Topp's scene, and if you're into big boobs and big clits, it's a keeper. The rest of it is easily forgotten. So unless you're a fan of one of these particular performers, you would probably be happier with another title.
