This is for Bears and the men who love them. The tongue-in-cheek (and a few other places) approach will keep customers coming back for this one.
This tape knows what it is. By bears, for bears, all bears all the time. Plus, writer/director Chi Chi LaRue has created such a shameless Catalina self-promotion that this tape is a more than Bear-able pleasure to watch. The plugs begin in the first bedroom scene. Mike Vespa is fondling his lover Gabriel Rocas while they watch the upcoming Catalina release Thrill Me. Rocas wishes he could be a Catalina model and Vespa tells him that he is definitely good enough, which they promptly prove. Rocas' huge cock and balls will make him a hit to watch for many years to come.
The neighbors hear that Rocas has been invited to perform in a video and they shoot their own home movie for consideration. Mick Ryan steals this scene and infuses it with sexuality and humor. The jerky, hand-held camerawork adds a wonderful cinema verite flavor.
While waiting at the studio, Jim Winfield and office boy Wayne Stephens check out the talents of hairy Mike Douglas. This threeway seems like it will never end, and one almost hopes it won't. Next, cover boy Randy Eliot arrives and welcomes Rocas to the male porn world. Finally, LaRue brings the tape to a satisfying conclusion with the pairing of Eliot and Hank Hightower, when Hightower decides to arrange his own audition. This video is such shameless fun, one wonders if Catalina is going to mention the names of all the grips and photographers as they plug away.
