  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
While spreading the word of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Hollywood, CA, Joe Young (Parker) unwittingly knocks on the door of porno director Maxxx Orbison (Jacobs). A fight breaks out while Maxxx's bodyguards are showing him the way out, but Joe turns out to be the one kicking some serious butt. Maxxx is so impressed with Joe

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits satisfying quality. With images that are generally sharp and detailed, though many scenes appear to be softly focused. Colors are brightly saturated, highlighting the outlandish costumes, though hues tend to appear somewhat reddish at times. Fleshtones can appear ruddy and blacks are deep, but undefined. Minor smearing is evident, though there is rarely any bothersome edge enhancement or pixelization. (Suzanne Hodges)
