The first title in the Cinderfella series from CDI shows promise: technical quality is good throughout, and director Colbert obviously spent time and effort in preparing the production. The main problem is uneven direction. Two scenes (the prison duo with Corbin and Davis and the final scene with Davis and Vitelli) are dragged out too long and one (the warehouse duo with Copeland and Wilde) is so truncated that much of the action is lost. Colbert also needs to pay closer attention to camera positioning, for the scene with Copeland and Gage appears at paints simulated.
The tape is strikingly similar to Catalina's Private Dick, down to the box cover, which in this case is somewhat confusing: why is Tony Davis dressed like the detective when the role is played by Copeland? Tasha Voux is charming as the wife whose husband is fooling around with other men, but slack direction weakens her effect.
An average debut, but obvious talent and effort may well improve the follow-up titles.
