The Film
 Harry works at a feminine hygeine company called "Internally Yours", he is surrounded by beautiful women daily and couldn't be more uncomfortable. Harry is clumsy, shy, awkward and just a bit creepy, bringing his stacks of dirty magazines to his desk on his lunch break. Obviously he has no luck with the women, that is until the day he meets a man called The Magician who gives him a magic pill. This pill gives him chance after chance with beautiful women ready to seduce Harry. There's a catch though... If Harry gets too aroused too soon they disappear. Harry has to learn to control his urges to keep his fantasies a reality.

Matt Hewitt plays a damn good sexually awkward, shy guy, the ladies here are all beautiful and the movie itself is just weird enough to stand apart from the loads and loads of other X-rated fare that it had to contend with. From orgies to a dominatrix and yes, we do get to see why this film got its name, HONEY BUNS is a well made and inspired piece of 70s hardcore.

The Audio & Video
Impulse Pictures secures a safe existence for another vintage piece of American smut with a pretty good overall transfer on HONEY BUNS. The print is in decent shape, there are some scratches and damage but nothing excessive or annoying. If anything the scratchiness only adds to the experience. The audio track is stable and mixed well. Levels are steady and don't flucuate. A bit of background noise is present but as with the PQ it isn't distracting.

The Extras
Bare bones. 

The Bottom Line
A bit funny, a bit awkward and weird, and packed with beautiful women, HONEY BUNS is a treasure of the 1970s hardcore scene.
