The island of the title is St. Croix in the Caribbean, where young vacationers from around the world are eagerly welcomed by the guy at the check-in desk, Tattoo (so named for the patterns on his brawny arms, rather than any resemblance to Herve Villechaize). The sea air puts various couples in the mood for sex--on the beach, in the marble bath, and all over the luxury suite. The entire cast reassembles for a farewell orgy around the pool, where everyone but the cameraman seems oblivious to the spectacular ocean view.
The setting is a plus (the whole video ends up being an ad for the hotel resort where it was shot). The soundtrack is a minus (a steel drum playing endless elevator Muzak). The stars are young and hot, but the camerawork is often indifferent. All in all, this vacation to Mantasy Island doesn't quite live up to expectations. Viewers won't be sorry they went, but they may not go back.
