Originally I had planned this to be a quick & dirty review of a compilation but upon viewing the movie, it turned out not to be the case. The Wacky Adventures of Seymore & Shane seemed like a repackage of two entire movies. I went and looked around the net to try to match the scenes up because the dvd doesn't tell you. I finally deduced Disc 1 to be Seymore and Shane on the Loose and Disc 2 to be Seymore and Shane Playing with Fire.
As for my overall impressions of this repackaging, and I must say it was disingeneous two repackage two movies without labeling them as such, Seymore has chosen two classics. I had never seen the originals since I was in high school at the time and I didn't watch porn for obvious reasons. It's only been a decade but how young some of the actors look compared to now is shocking. People like Mark Davis and Seymour himself. About the only person that looks like she hasn't aged one bit is Shane but that's because she looked older than she actually was. The other thing I have to comment is that the quality of the women. The blatant stripper look is evident with it seems like everyone has implants and tan lines. I watched porn after the European and Britney Spears revolution so I found many of the women appalling.
Since my only experience with Shane has been Shane's World and my experiences with Seymore started with Alisha Klass, seeing these two together was a very novel experience. I can see where Shane's World came from with the first DVD. On the Loose chronicles the duo visiting Ottawa, Canada and throw their friend, Butch, a birthday celebration. Even though I didn't care for the women in this movie, there was a very fun vibe going on and the sex was excellent. I can see why Seymore is considered one of the pioneers of gonzo with his combo of POV and 3rd person perspective. Playing with Fire is aptly named because right after their trip, Shane takes a detour to New York City and does a number of crazy things like blowing random strangers including a fireman and a deli-boy for breakfast. I preferred Playing with Fire for one reason and it's the best reason. Vanessa Chase. Seeing Vanessa Chase in her prime is a revelation. I think that's why I loved her so much in watching porn after high school because she was a girl that you can see at a club and not think stripper/porn star. The scene with Vanessa and Seymore at the end is scorching. So if you don't have On the Loose or Playing with Fire, well get this movie.
