Henri Pachard's follow up to his earlier hit Sexcapades was 1984's VCA production, Great Sexpectations which, despite the title, has nothing to do with Dickens and everything to do with dicks. Clever, huh? I thought so too. The basic plot, and believe me, it's basic, follows a movie director named Harry Crocker (Eric Edwards) who finds himself stuck on set with a bunch of lovely ladies who have been cast in his latest film. Unfortunately, a few of them are primadonna types and most of them are horny as hell, which means they're hard to direct, but with the guys on set (especially the lead actor, John Leslie, playing himself!), it's probably a safe bet that these nymphos will be taken care of sooner rather than later.
Scene 1 – Joanna Storm, Renee Summers, Eric Edwards: With the two girls in the hot tub, Eric comes in and sits down. He spreads his legs and she gives him a blowjob while Joanna comes up behind Renee as she's sucking him off and starts playing with her pussy which she spreads wide before fingering it and sucking it. From there Joanna moves up to Eric's prick and titty fucks him, and Renee gets behind her and helps move her breasts up and down his cock. Joanna lies back in the tub and Eric fucks her pussy wile Renee goes underwater and licks at his balls as they slap her ass. Eric pulls out and shoots his load on Joanna's mound and they kiss each other to end a fairly hot three way.
Scene 2 – Honey Wilder, Jerry Butler: Bolla watches as she goes down on him, but she tells him to leave. From there she strips him nude and sucks on his cock, coming pretty close to taking it all the way into her throat. He gets her on the bed down on all fours and starts fucking her doggy style, and he finishes inside her we assume as it ends there.
Scene 3 – Tanya Lawson And R. Bolla: This scene starts off with her sucking his cock while they lay in bed. He asks her to move up so that he can finger her pussy while she sucks him, and she obliges him, looking ever so eighties in her headband and her leg warmers and not much else. He bends her over and fingers her asshole briefly without really penetrating it and then he spreads her legs and eats her hairy muff. After he's eaten her he spreads her legs and fucks her missionary style, and then he lays back so that she can get on all fours and blow him again as the scene comes to a close.
Scene 4 – Joanna Storm, George Payne: These two are fucking in front of the camera, he's got her on her back in some nice white lingerie, fucking her missionary style and pulling her hips up into the air towards him as he pumps her. He gets her legs up around her head and pounds at her pretty hard, and then he pulls out and comes in her mouth and onto her tits (which are still in her bra).

Scene 5 – Honey Wilder And Tanya Lawson The two girls start to kiss one another standing up and Honey fingers Tanya through her white panties. Soon enough Honey has got her panties pulled to the side and has a finger inside of her new best friend, who stands there and plays with her breasts while the fingers do the walking. Honey sucks on Tanya's tits for a bit before Joanna bends over in front of her so that she can get her fingers way in there. After that Honey spreads her legs so that Tanya can eat her pussy and rub her clit with her slender fingers.
Scene 6 – Silver Starr, Dick Howard: This is another fuck scene that takes place on the film set. He's laying back and she's sucking on his cock when the fog machines kick in. After that she gets down on all fours in front of him and he pounds her little pussy doggy style for a spell while space music plays. She leans against him and this gets him off as he shoots his load on her ass cheeks.
Scene 7 – Carol Cross And Eric Edwards: He's sitting on the couch sucking down some vodka while she gives him head. He has her move up and show him her ass, which she does. She sucks him some more and he makes her take her panties off and spread her ass cheeks for him and we get a really nice look at what she's got going on back there. They start to kiss and he rubs her a bit before getting her on all fours and fucking her pussy from behind. He takes it out and puts it back into her mouth and jerks himself off rubbing his head on her tongue and spunking on her left tit and rubbing his prick and his spooge on her nipple. The oral here is pretty hot – while he's not so into it, she is and her ass looks great when she shows it off the way that she does.
Scene 8 – Kelly Nichols And John Leslie: These two are standing there kissing in the bedroom and she's in a red teddy. She rubs him through his jeans and he gets hard so she takes his prick out and starts giving him a handjob. He moves behind her and puts his fingers into her mouth while taking off her lingerie and squeezing her tits. She tells him it hurts but she smiles and encourages him to go on. She lies on the bed and she spreads her legs for him so that he can eat her pussy out. He eats her pussy and fingers her while she rubs her clit. From there he fucks her missionary style, telling him to ram it all in and fuck her (she sounds sincere which makes this a pretty hot scene). He moves her onto her side and pounds away, this time fucking her in the ass, her fingers still making sure her clit gets all the attention that she needs. She has him pull out and put it into her mouth and she blows him a bit more, and it's then that he comes onto her lips and into her mouth. These two fuck each other like they mean it, and this is definitely a truly stand out scene.
Scene 9 – Eric Edwards, Kelly Nichols, And Chelsea Blake: Chelsea gets down on her knees and blows him while Kelly takes off her clothes and lies back on the couch and fingers herself slowly but deliberately. Chelsea fingers herself while she sucks him off, and Kelly gets herself closer to a climax with two fingers inside herself. At that point Kelly has Chelsea come over and eat her pussy and she trash talks her and verbally degrades her while she goes down on her. Edwards moves in behind Chelsea while she's eating Kelly out and he fucks her in the pussy from behind. Chelsea asks Edwards to fuck her in the ass and Kelly grinds her face into her pussy. Kelly makes Edwards pull out of Chelsea and move his cock into her ass while they relocate to the floor. Kelly pulls her face into her pussy more aggressively, Chelsea fingering her pussy as her ass gets fucked. He pulls out and comes on her ass, which is quivering at this point, and she rubs his cream all over her crack. An insanely hot scene, it's great to see Nichols take control of the other two and teach them a lesson. She dominates the scene while Blake submits and it's just hot, hot, hot.
Scene 10 – Eric Edwards And Kelly Nihcols: These two start kissing and he starts sucking on her tits as she strips for him. He takes off his robe and she strokes him hard. He lies her down and spreads her legs so that he can eat her out, licking and fingering away at her beaver. After that she lies back with her legs spread so that he can fuck her missionary style while she rubs her clit. He pulls out after a few minutes and she pulls on his prick until he comes on her tits.
For a twenty year old XXX film, Great Sexpectations doesn't fare too badly. There's some print damage throughout but it's mostly speckling and not scratches or anything too severe. There's nothing to report in the way of mpeg compression though there are a few scenes where you can tell that the original feature wasn't light in the best possible ways as things do look a little too dark.
The Dolby Digital Mono sound is in English with no subtitles, alternate language tracks or closed captioning options. The audio is quite flat and the levels are low. There's hiss and some humming throughout the film and there are a few scenes where the dialogue is muffled and faint.
Sadly, VCA falls short on this release in the extra features department. Aside from scene selection there is a there's a screen that shows cover art for four other VCA Classic titles, there's a photo gallery consisting of a dozen or so stills from the film, a cast listing, an internet link, and contact info for VCA.
Both Hustler and Adam Film World raved about Great Sexpectations when it was a new release, and now that it's out on DVD, it's time for DVD Talk to rave about it too. It's a great blend of humor, sex and intrigue with a fine cast and strong direction. VCA's disc could have looked and sounded better and it could have had more supplements, but if the movie's all you're after this release fits the bill fine and comes recommended.
