Chloe, Ginger Paige, Heaven Leigh, Tara, Angelica Sinn, Michael J Cox, Rich Hansom, Kyle Stone
Five bonus scenes, starring Sunrise Adams, Briana Banks and Kira Kener, among others
The two-channel track is not stereo and the video is pretty shoddy DV, probably shot on a consumer or prosumer model camcorder. It's porn - what did you expect?
Body of Review:
Vivid dips back into the catalog and fishes out Flicker, the story of an obsessed movie fan named Joey (Hansom) and his crush, movie star Gloria (Chloe). It's a Vivid film, so you know what you're getting into here - lots of couples-friendly action and something resembling a plot.

Oral (both), vaginal, anal.
Reverse cowgirl, missionary, doggie
Our "hero's" first projection involves Chloe in a hostage situation during a 40s gangster movie. She has an interesting way of negotiating, mostly involving work on her knees (NHL Players Association, take notes). This is shot strangely - think of what movies look like when you tell the DVD player that it is projecting to a widescreen, but it's actually a standard 4:3.
This is an oddly paced scene. There is literally 17 sections pussy-eating after Chloe gets things started with a blowjob. Then they run through three positions in less than seven minutes before he finishes on her face.

Heaven Leigh, Tara
Cramped (it's in a limo).
It's another edition of "Limo Lesbians," with Heaven Leigh and Tara playing the titular roles and Gloria looking on. Neither woman is that attractive, neither seem to be that interested, and the sound is thrown off by the sounds of a limo driving. And it's given more time than the first scene. Pass.

Back to the movie theater, where Joey is watching Gloria. Cross wipe to outside, where Gloria pulls up in a limo (presumably sans lesbians) and picks up Joey just by saying her name.
This is the centerpiece scene of the film. It's given a full 12 minutes and both Chloe and Hansom seem motivated here. They even throw in a couple of nods to the "plot;" Gloria is in full control, while Joey seems to be happy just to be here. Porn with plot and still hot? Be still my beating heart.

In and around theater seats, reverse cowgirl, doggie
The next morning, Gloria has second thoughts about the evening prior, which hurts Joey's feelings. He leaves in what I think was supposed to be a huff.
Meanwhile, back at the movie theater, a horny couple finds itself alone. It's a laughable scene - the guy keeps looking off-screen at, presumably, the director, and the woman is the stereotype of what some people would call the "nasty porn star."
Ginger Paige, Rich Hansom
Oral (both), vaginal
The film-in-a-film draws to a close, while Joey realizes that his dream girl was never Gloria, but ... the ticket taker! So, they do the logical thing and have sex at the concession stand. What other movies are showing that there's just no one around to "discover" these trysts? Five possibilities: 1) Harriet the Spy, 2) The Adventures of Pluto Nash, 3) Leonard Part 6, 4) Ghost Dad, 5) Bordello of Blood.
Anyway, this scene closes the movie on a strong note. Paige is a very pretty blonde woman who seems to really be into Joey in the scene, and the two are energetic and vocal. The only drawback is that the scene itsef is fairly short.
With only two of five scenes worth seeing, normally Flicker would earn DVDTalk's lowest rating. But the five bonus scenes, each of which are better than anything in the feature itself, pull the entire disc up to a worthy rental.
