There's not a whole lot of plot to discuss when talking about Allen Stuart's Cheap Thrills - the premise is very simple. Rhonda Jo Petty, Heather Thomas, Marita Ekberg and Susan Hart are all auditioning for the same modeling gig. What we don't know going in is that these four minx's have just gotten back from a weekend away together and spent the entire time fucking and sucking their way through whoever they could get their hands on.
While sitting in the waiting room waiting for their shot at the big time, they walk down memory lane together and relive the weekend's exploits but once that's done and they find out the results of the agency's decision, the four girls are forced into action of the carnal kind so that one of them can land the job they all crave.
Chapter 1 Rhonda Jo Petty, George Payne, Mystery Guy: This one kicks into high gear right off the bat as Rhonda is naked in bed with the two guys. She strokes their cocks and then gets into a sixty-nine with the mystery guy for a few minutes he fingers her pretty deep in this scene. She lays back and he goes into her missionary style, then sucks on George for a while, while she gets pounded doggy style. Once it's all over and done with she takes a load in her face and finishes them off with her mouth.
Chapter 2 Heather Thomas And Marita Ekberg: The two girls wake up in bed together and start to kiss. The clothes come off and soon Marita is sucking on Heather's nipples. Marita goes down on her friend, using her tongue and fingers on her pussy, and then the two lipstick lesbians get locked into a sixty-nine for a while. Heather goes down on Marita for a bit, and then lies on her back so that Marita can rub her breasts on her and work her clit with her nipple. She gets her mouth back on her box then turns tables and sits on Heather's face for a minute or two. They finish each other off, then kiss a bit before ending the scene.

Chapter 3 Susan Hart, Marita Ekberg, And Joey Silvera: Joey walks in on Susan as she's sleeping and wakes her up. They strip and start to kiss each other, and soon she gives him a handjob. She blows him for a bit and then Marita comes into the room and joins in with them. Susan sits on Joey's face and rides him for a bit while Marita sucks his cock. After that, Marita sits on his face and Susan rides Joey cowgirl style. Marita takes it doggy style for a minute or so then Susan lays back so he can fuck her pussy missionary. Marita gets on top of him and rides him reverse cowgirl style, then he lays her on her back so that he can poke her missionary again, but quickly, as before you know it he's pulled out and shot on her pelvis, Susan licking and fingering the two as he does so.
Chapter 4 Heather Thomas And George Payne: Heather whips out George's cock as he sits back in his office chair to let her blow him. He titty fucks her next, working her great, natural breasts on his dong for a while. She sits on him and rides him reverse cowgirl, sporting some nice white lingerie, then he eats her out for a second before going into her missionary style. He fucks her that way for a bit then he pulls out so that she can finish him with her killer boobs and her mouth as he shoots on her face and cleavage.
Chapter 5 Rhonda Jo Petty, Susan Hart, Marita Ekberg And Heather Thomas: This last scene, if you couldn't tell from the cast listing, is simply a big, old lesbian orgy. The girls eat one another out, play with their tits, and all sport some nice, eighties era lingerie throughout. There's a lot of fingering and muff diving, titty play and tongue kissing too. Each of the girls has her box munched and also manages to munch one of her playmate's box as well, ensuring that this is an equal opportunity lipstick lesbian gang bang the best kind, if you ask me. There's no toys, no degradation or chocking or anything like that, just good old fashioned girl on girl action in this grand finale.
The production values on this one are sorely lacking, but the sex is hot and well shot. The feature itself is fairly short, clocking in at just over an hour in length, but it's an hour well spent if you're into the early eighties thing. It's a shame that this wasn't shot on film as the video quality sucks and there are some good scenes in here that would benefit from the better picture quality that the format has to offer, but what are you gonna do
This one was shot on video back in the early eighties and it shows. The image is soft throughout and very hazy looking. Unfortunately it lacks any real definition or fine detail and while it's watchable, it's certainly no more or no better than that. If you're familiar with how vintage porn has been represented for the most part at this point in DVD history, you'll know what you're getting into but don't expect this one to have the same king of clarity or detail or excellent picture quality as, say, Pirates. Also worth mentioning is that the good ol' Video X Pix bug is back on this release, present about once every fifteen minutes or so in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
The Dolby Digital Mono soundtrack is a little muffled and not of the best quality, but again, it's taken from a tape source so the limitations of the older technology are going to be there when that's the case. Dialogue is pretty easy to understand, however, and the background music comes through reasonably clear. There aren't a lot of sound effects used in the film, mostly just some random moaning and groaning during the action scenes and these are handled just fine, as are the talkier bits of the movie.
The standard Video X Pix extras are on this release. Two trailers are included, the first is for Blue Jeans and the second one is for Female Athletes. The same still gallery that was on the other two discs released in conjunction with this one, consisting of about thirty images from various period pornos, is also included.
Again, the video quality could have been better and more extras are always welcome (why don't old vintage smut films ever get any real extras?) but Cheap Thrills is hotter than the average smut film of the era and the movie benefits from some good humor, a very solid cast, and a few stand out scenes. Recommended for fans of the old school way, everyone else would be better served with a rental.
