Playback (1996) is a Skinemax title.
Charles Grant is a senior executive trying to put together a major
telecommunications merger. That is putting a strain on his marriage to
interior designer Tawny Kitaen. Meanwhile, ambitious Shannon Whirry is
trying to steal the merger and seduce Grant as well. Whirry hires PI Harry Dean Stanton to get some dirt on Grant
and his wife, and
succeeds. The two
attended a sex fantasy club, and made a tape of themselves, which Whirry
gets her hands on. The PI also photographs Grant's horny boss pawing Tawny, and Whirry shows
Grant the photos. Things look black for the home team, but
truth will out.
Given its made-for-adult-cable origin, Playback has an interesting cast,
including George Hamilton and
Harry Dean Stanton, who is predictably excellent in his small role. Tawny
looks great, even after her seven year absence from films; and Shannon is appropriately evil. Unfortunately, the
film has neither enough story nor enough flesh to merit a look. Only
Shannon Whirry or Tawny Kitaen completists will want this, and even
they will be rewarded with minimal nudity. Tawny shows breasts, one at
a time, and buns in a t-back. Shannon shows buns (no upper body in the
frame) and some cleavage.
(An unknown stripper shows breasts.)
To make matters worse, this is only available in a German Language
Region 2 PAL!! Unless you have to own every obscure nude scene from
Tawny or Shannon, this is one to skip.
D. (Not recommended.)
IMDb readers say 2.8, with 2.2 from the top voters.
