The Films
What happens when four divorced men get together and watch porno tapes together? Well a ridiculous plan to have sex with one of their old babysitters of course! The plan involves the men dressing up as a married couple with a made and chauffeur, drugging her and getting her horny before they bust in on her. Their plans works better than they could have planned when the girl calls over three friends and a giant orgy ensues, ending with the man finally getting to sleep with the babysitter that cost him his marriage.

Some notable adult film stars come together in SEXUAL HEIGHTS which has plenty of silly moments to keep things light and fun. A couple of unrelated scenes featuring John Holmes break up the action for no real reason but to add a good 15 minutes on to the film's run time. All things considered it would have been better if SEXUAL HEIGHTS was a breezier 75 minutes and focused on the actual story at hand. I'm sure fans of Holmes will argue that with me and that's okay.

UNDULATIONS features another who's who of the adult film world circa 1981 when John Holmes, Jamie Gillis, Serena, Mai Lin and others join together for a talk show about their careers and end up having an orgy. What else would you expect from five porn stars talking about their time spent sucking and fucking? There's some funny cuts to viewers of the talk show and their reactions to what is happening on screen and there's plenty of the raunchy stuff. Pacing is no problem as it moves at a brisk pace and never overstays its welcome.   

The Audio & Video
Vinegar Syndrome's DVD is great again, showing love to these films when few others would even consider it. The 16x9 anamorphic widescreen 2K transfers maintain the films' original aspect ratios. Picture quality is nice with strong colors and a crisp image. There are some scratches on the prints used but it is hardly a big issue. The mono audio tracks also sound good despite some minor intermittent crackling. Dialogue is complimented by the music and even though there is a bit of crackling it still sounds good.

The Extras
A trailer is included for each film

The Bottom Line
This double feature of Carlos Tobalina films is entertaining and features some classic group scenes with some of the biggest names ever to appear in adult films. Recommended.
