Length: 107.5 minutes
Date of Production: 1/24/93
Extra's: Bloopers, trailers, links to other Wicked extras, double sided dvd cover, audio biographies, photogalleries,
Audio/Video Quality: The lighting wasn't great but otherwise the picture looked much better than average for a movie over 10 years old. The audio was presented in both 2.0 or 5.1 Dolby Digital. The 5.1 track was the preferred track and made solely for this dvd release. Not bad at all.
Body of Review: And so it began... Arabian Nights was the first movie made by the company known as Wicked Pictures. Interestingly enough, it was a comedy set around a couple of goofy detectives (Jonathan and Steven) who are in search of an ancient genie's lamp that causes sexual inhibitions to disappear when opened. yeah, the story and plot were about as cheesy as one would expect but like so many other Wicked comedies, it was plenty of fun to watch for the non-sex material as much as the action. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:
-- sponsored by --
Scene One: Christina, an attractive blonde, and Jonathan, much younger here than I'm used to, had sex on a couch. It included oral and vaginal sex with no condoms (this movie apparently was made before condoms became mandatory at better studios). I liked it but recognize that some of you prefer circus act sex (something Wicked's not known for even today). Warm with some chemistry.
Scene Two: Jenna and Steven in the country club locker room. Some fine oral by the lovely young gal and vaginal sex to finish him off. I'd be willing to bet that she didn't get off but he sure did. Not bad if weaker than average.
Scene Three: Lacey, Sierra, and Porsche had a harem scene in front of Sean. I liked it a bit but I've seen a lot better lesbian scenes of late and this was too limited in scope for me to appreciate. None of them were first stringers at the time this was made.
Scene Four: Lacey, perhaps trying to make up for her unenthusiastic performance earlier, got it on with Sean. The scene included anal and was actually pretty warm but it lost points due to the lousy lighting.
Scene Five: Porsche decided to also make up for the weak earlier effort and got busy with both Julian and Sean. The sex included a DP and was pretty warm, if not actually hot.I'm surprised they didn't rip her in half by how tight she looked.
Scene Six: Sierra and Melanie jumped Steven in the doctor's office. It was nearly as good as the last scene although it was less extreme in the sexual acts engaged in. Warm+
Summary: Time has moved on in porn and older movies don't generally fare all that well when released after years of change have taken place. These days, it seems like the market spends more time trying to chase the circus act sex and abuse stuff rather than focus on making a movie that's fun with warm or better sex. If you prefer choking, gross looking women, multiple chopsticks up the butt or other such things, this one won't be for you. If, on the other hand, you prefer a light-hearted romp with decent sex and attractive gals to watch, you may have found just the thing with Arabian Nights. I'm listing it as Recommended although I think a lot of people will think it's even better (I've always like Morgan's silly antics on camera but I'm trying to be objective). If you have any doubts, rent it first.
