The Film
Peaches is on her way to her father's wedding but when she arrives things don't go as she'd hoped and she leaves upset. She crashes her speeding Jeep leaving her unconscious. While she's out a couple of sleazeballs find her and have their way with her and decide to take care of her as she wakes up and is suffering from Amnesia. Peaches can't remember her name, where she is or why she's there and her adventure is about to take some weird twists and turns encountering all sorts of weirdos and doctors and experiences everything from forced enemas to swinger party orgies where some unexpected guests are among the lovers.

PRETTY PEACHES is a fun X-rated romp that is even sillier than it is sexy. There's plenty to laugh at as Peaches struggles to find out who she is and her despicable caretakers try to get their rocks off and make money off of her situation.  Desiree Cousteau and Julet Anderson make their film debut here and would both go on to successful careers as porn stars. Whether you're a die hard of the genre or have just a sneaking interest in checking out vintage smut, PRETTY PEACHES is a great one to check out.

The Audio & Video
Vinegar Syndrome swings and drives one to deep center field... home run! This transfer, maintaining the original 1.85:1 aspect ratio, is damn near pristine. There are moments of very light speckling but the sharpness and clarity to the picture is phenomenal. Detail levels from clothing to textures and surfaces is very high and skin tones are fleshy and natural without a hint of waxiness. The English mono soundtrack is great as well. There's no damage to the track and no background noise to distract you. The levels are steady throughout.

The Extras

The Bottom Line
A classic of the adult film genre gets a gorgeous limited edition Blu-ray release. Highly recommended.
