REVIEWS

 

Critical Rating: AA

Young director Ansel Rainier definitely has a knack for getting ample, natural-sounding dialogue out of his charges. "Cruisers" capitalizes greatly on this fact, but throws a couple of curves straight out of left field that really have to leave you wondering what Rainier was thinking. The premise is nice and simple: a bunch of guys getting together for an informal five-year high school reunion. There's plenty of sex and Cal Jensen appropriately dominates the crowd. He looks terrific.

He also looks a little embarrassed by the heavy-handed plot twists. The most bizarre is a long confession in the opening scene from Rod Lance's character about his drug addiction. Later, the story and action again both grind to a halt with an awkward marital spat between Brad Weston and Guy Charles. It's not that I feel "reality" dialogue has no place in an adult film. It's just that this cast and crew don't have the budget or experience to pull it off. Otherwise, some nice packaging (inappropriately similar to Vivid Man's superior Davey and the Cruisers) and Cal Jenson hot out of Matt Sterling's Heat in the Night may give the title more mileage than it otherwise would warrant.
