Charlie's Girls 2 (1989)
Directed by: Gordon Vandermeer
Directed by: Gordon Vandermeer
If it wasn't for Busty Belle's presence in just one of five scenes, or the incorruptible ambition of Alpha Blue Archives, which has gone on to release hundreds of rare DVDs of vintage adult cinema, Charlie's Girls 2 could've been a long-lost porn film. VHS tapes of classic titles are already immensely difficult to fine, so the film's placement on a triple feature with two other films featuring Belle is favorable if you're someone who believes in the upgrading and democratization of adult films.
Charlie's Girls 2 is a charming little porn film, disappointingly light on plot, but pleasantly hefty in the regard of making "jungle fever" and interracial sex the core focus of its eighty-seven minutes. The film's frame story revolves around an older interracial couple (Scarlett O. and K.C. Cool), where she has just returned from intense a trip to discover and peel back the layers of her sexuality. The two wind up lying in bed, recounting both her sexual encounters and that of her friend Nina DePonca and her husband Ray Victory, who have both cheated and worked to get back at one another over the course of the last few days.
The opening scene features a twenty minute love-fest between DePonca and Scarlett, attending to the popular "zebra" fetish of pornography that has only blossomed in recent years. Like many opening sequences, particularly ones with lesbians, the scene would be hotter if it were truncated a bit and not so fixated on a lot of the same cuts and the same positions for so long.
Following up the intro are back-to-back scenes with Ray Victory, the second one having the gorgeous Rachel Ryan accompany him and the third having the buxom Busty Belle, if that's not too redundant, respectively. Because both scenes have the aspects of interracial love, infidelity, and secrecy, the film achieves the additional elements of taboo incredibly well. With that, Rachel Ryan's stringy blonde hairstyle actually stands out in her sequence more than anything, and Belle's scene is only given added kink and flair with her long red nails as she rides Victory.
The inimitable porn icon Peter North even turns up during the course of events to sleep DePonca who is trying to get back at her husband for sleeping with a white woman. After all is said and done, the film ends with an intense love-making session between Scarlett and Cool before concluding with an immense climax. Charlie's Girls 2 benefits from increased elements of taboo, but it does lose its momentum being that a couple of its scenes are too long, and the lack of a very developed or interesting framing story with two more realized characters also sets in some sort of disappointment.
Come for the added taboos and stay for Belle's beautiful, cherry-red nails.
Starring: Scarlett O., K.C. Cool, Busty Belle, Ray Victory, Nina DePonca, Rachel Ryan, and Peter North. Directed by: Gordon Vandermeer.
