Great bikini movies!

"For what they are, BIKINI CHAIN GANG and BIKINI AIRWAYS (and yes, this is a double-feature, even though this is not obvious from the cover) are great soft-core porn movies. Is anyone going to rank these with SCHINDLER'S LIST? Boy, I hope not. If they do, they certainly have something to learn about the taxonomy of movies.
The forte of these movies is their preponderance of nudity; sexy strip teases, spontaneous scenes of women taking their shirts off, steamy sex scenes, etc. On all of these accounts, the film scores quite high. And, in fact, is this not why you would buy this DVD in the FIRST place?
There was only one girl whom I did'nt find attractive. Unfortunately, she's in both films. She has a nice body, but I didn't think she was very pretty. Kind of a biker chick with tatts. Even so, there are enough other hot babes to make up for her.
So, if you have an interest in pretty much any movie that begins with "Bikini" then these flicks are for you. If your expectations on acting, plot, direction and everything else but eroticism are kept low, then you'll be all-set!"
What's better than a bikini movie? Two bikini movies!

"Bikini Chain Gang/Bikini Airways is a great DVD release from Retromedia. Bikini Chain Gang is the main feature and is one of the best bikini movies they've ever done. It adheres to the classic "girls in prison" formula almost perfectly. Jessie (Beverly Lynne) is arrested for a crime she didn't commit and sent to prison. Of course you've got the corrupt warden, the tough head guard (Nicole Sheridan), and a bunch of hot female inmates having sex with the guards and each other. The only thing missing was a shower scene.
There are six sex scenes. Four are boy/girl, one is boy/girl/girl, and one is girl/girl. All of them are excellent. All the women are attractive and hot and do a great job in the sex scenes. In addition to Beverly and Nicole, the rest of the female cast includes Belinda Gavin, Brooke Taylor, and Jassie.
Bikini Airways is the bonus feature. It wasn't as good as Chain Gang, but was still good softcore and really made this DVD a great value. Terri (Regina Russell) inherits an airline from a deceased uncle. In order to generate much needed revenue, she decides to use their only jet to throw a bachelor party for a rich guy.
There are seven sex scenes. Six are boy/girl and one is girl/girl/girl. The first two weren't very impressive and they were the only two scenes for the first half of the movie. But during the second half, the heat gets turned up for the remaining five, which were much better. The women here are also attractive and hot. In addition to Regina, we get Belinda Gavin again, Amy Lindsay, Loni Lynn, and Wendy Devine.
Two bikini films on one DVD at a good price. This is very recommended."
Warning: the ratio of comedy to sex is out of whack here

"Terri (Regina Russell) inherits Janus Airways with its one airplane from her uncle Hugh Janus (say his name once or twice until you get the joke). She needs $25,000 to pay off the airlines debts and comes up with the idea of having girls in bikinis man the ticket counter to inspire clients. Many are inspired, but no one actually buys any tickets. Fortunately, rich guy Gary (Brad Bartram) has to get to his wedding in Miami to Francine (Wendy Divine), and since the girls in the bikinis were going to be the entertainment at his bachelor's party, Terri comes up with the bright idea of flying Gary to Miami and having his bachelor party on the flight (take a wild guess how much it will cost Gary).
This 2003 direct to video movie is your standard late night cable combination of soft core and soft comedy, the later provided by Captain Sam (Jay Richardson) and Dave (Sam Silver), who do their shtick with no concern for whether or not it is funny. Still, Richardson gets credit for being for nailing all of the bad jokes and being the only actor in the film totally at ease with his character and the story line, mainly because he does not have to do anything but watch the half-dozen sex scenes that are the main selling point of "Bikini Airways." The verdict is that the scenes involving the women (Kylie Biscayne as Vicki, Loni Lynn as Traci, and Julie Snow as Pam) are better than those involving the guys on the plane for the simple reason that the guys (Leland Jay as Jeff, Frankie Cullen as David, and Noah Frank as Jim) have this silly sophomoric grins on their faces before, during and after the sex scenes. I see those looks on their face and I do not think that these guys are lucky, I just think they are idiots, which is probably not the point and strongly suggests I am not this film's target audience.
There is an element of mystery here because we are pretty sure Terri and Gary have to end up together, since their names come first in the credits, and it only takes one phone call from Gary to his fiancé to convince us that the nuptials will not be taking place (although the incompetence of the pilots is potentially another reason there will be no wedding). This matters because Terri is part of the "serious" sex scenes that bookend "Bikini Airways." Everybody else is just having sex, but Terri is having sex with the man she loves (it just happens to be a different man at the end than it was in the beginning). The strange thing is that the humor is probably better in than the sex in this film, and you know that just cannot be right.
"Bikini Airways" might not be as titillating as you would like, but the kitchen sink approach with regards to the humor manages to save it from being an offensive example of this genre. The end title promised a film to be entitled "Bikini Frankenstein," but apparently the movie has yet to be made, and I have to admit I am ambivalent about such news..."

"This is the latest Beverly Lynne movie that I could find and of course it was good."
