Report Card: C+

This is one of those titles that, with just a little more effort--or attention or talent or something, anyway--could’ve been terrific. It features a great cast of pretty young twinks who, though they aren’t quite Bel-Ami caliber, are damn close. There are at least a couple of good scenes and performances. Unfortunately the guys aren’t filmed or coached very well, and both the script and direction are a mess.

Way-cute Dean O’Connor stars as a Midwestern kid, fresh off the bus, who gawks and drools over a gang of Hollywood skateboard punks, led by super-hung Tony Donovan. Almost half the action takes place in and around a public bathroom where the skaters hang out; but most of this glory-hole footage is pointless and incomplete. I found myself wondering: Are these supposed to be real sex scenes, or is all this just the setup for the sex scenes to follow? For non-cumming scenes, they sure do take their time…

In fact, the whole movie seems padded. This is the kind of porn film that almost demands constant use of the chapter-search and fast-forward buttons… The voice-over narration is long-winded and full of cliches. We get lots of footage of Dean staring at the ocean, and the others on their skateboards or just hanging out… Now, mind you, I don’t much care if a porn film has a plot or not. But there’s nothing more tedious than a movie that THINKS it has a plot but is sadly mistaken…

Still, there are some hot fresh faces here, and several standout scenes. After a couple false starts the movie hits its stride with the first complete scene between Jonnie and Jason, two very thin and young-looking guys, one blond and one brunette, who are really into each other. Pure skinny-twink heaven: a duet between tight and bony boy-bodies, complete with 28-inch waists and assorted skater tattoos… Another hot duet, between Dean and Tony Cummings occurs about two-thirds through the flick, as they take turns fucking each other… Donovan on the other hand, who gets special exclusive billing in the credits, doesn’t seem that special at all except for his big dick…

If you love young guys—particularly modern-style guys with piercings and tatts—there’s enough good stuff here to earn my recommendation. But just barely. Others with more mature or more general interests may want to keep shopping.
