NOT THREE'S COMPANY XXX





The plot: Jack loses his job as a chef, so Chrissy gets a night job to help out. Because of things overheard, the rest of the cast assume that Chrissy has become a prostitute. Just like a real Three's Company plot: Something is said...and that something is misconstrued as something else and hilarity ensues.

This is an excellent porn parody. There are several factors that all combine to make it stand out among some of the other recently released porn parodies.

I find two things to always be necessary for a good movie (porn or otherwise): Good casting and good writing and Not Three's Company has both.

The best bit of casting without a doubt is Penny Flame as Janet. With a wig, not only does she look the part but her acting will make you think she is the real Janet. Penny Flame even stays in character during her sex scene (listen to her dialog during her scene). Next best casting: Nina Hartley makes a great Mrs. Roper. Van Damage is not too bad as Jack and the same can be said for Brynn Tyler as Christie. And a special note for the outstanding non-sex role by James Bartholet as The Doctor.

An odd bit of casting is Ron Jeremy as the bartender at The Regal Beaver. This is a non-sex role and I see no particular reasoning for him being cast in this movie, except for the name recognition on the box.

An interesting tidbit about the casting: Tommy Gunn was forced to shave his mustache for the role of Larry. I say forced, since the word was that they would kill him off in the Pirates series if he didn't. So after going to all the trouble of having him shave his mustache, they give him one more super bad fake wig.

Besides the casting, the writing is so good that it made me think that it was just a long lost Three's Company script.

A few other factors add to Not Three's Company to make it such an excellent sitcum:

The sets are colorful and reminiscent of the real show.

The audience “oohs” and “aahs” and applause spots are included in the right spots and the laugh track is reminiscent of the real TV show.

The movie ends just like a Three's Co. would end: with a little break to a blackout where a commercial would normally be and returning with a bumper spot.

And to top everything off, the theme song to Not Three's Company sounds like the real theme song only with different lyrics (check it out below in the trailer)

Not Three's Company definitely grades an A.

I saw this one a while back - it was pretty good, didn't make it to the end though. I still have a really hard time making it through any of these XXX parodies. I get bored, the sex scenes are too long (and out of place/character), and then the joke gets old.

Wow, I sound really cynical.

On a brighter note, I met Van Damage's wife, Cynthia (who appears in this movie), and had a pretty crazy conversation where she obviously thought I was someone else, and it ended in awkwardness for me. That's a story that should be told privately...it was very memorable though.

Of course the sex scenes are TOO LONG. I think that I've remarked about that so many times, that I forgot to mention that Not Three's Company was no exception to the modern day rule. But at least there's always the old FF button :-)

Not Three's Company and Not Married with children are the only two really good sitcums that I have seen. A few others have had their moments and a few have been downright bad. But I think I keep renting them, because I know that they will have some semblance of a plot.

As to the Van Damage wife story...YOU TEASE!...A promise of a good story that I can never hear :-(
