THE SEX FILES: Clerks XXX: A Porn Parody

Clerks XXX: A Porn ParodyI have seen my fair share of porn parody-lots of the DVDs produced by Vivid actually, as Clerks XXX: A Porn Parody is-but I have to say this movie is one of the best I have ever seen. I don’t particularly think a parody is so easy to make, in fact I’d opine that it’s damn hard to do (at least right). It’s a fine line to balance being true to the original source material while at the same time interjecting enough levity (and in the case of a porn movie, enough sex) to create something that as much stands on its own as it pays homage. I’d say with Clerks XXX: A Porn Parody Vivid scored on every level.

First there is the setting, a sex shop/porn DVD store, with an outside facade very reminiscent of the Leonardo, N.J. bunker-like convenience store of the original Kevin Smith low-budget Clerks. Then there are simple little touches like the vocabulary title cards-white titles on black backgrounds before each new scene in the very same type face K.S used in the original movie-slight references to Star Wars, quirky shoppers sniffing DVD cases just like the weirdos Smith populated his film with and the characters here are pretty much perfect parodies of Smith’s originals, down to the infamous Jane and Silent Bertha! But mainly what makes this all work is the snappy word play David Stanley manages. This is what made the original Clerks so distinctive (for better or worse) and what makes this movie true to its source.

Then again, where this film diverts from the original (this is a porn film after all) is another area Vivid knows well…very well. Though rather standard fare as far as the sex they do get into, when Allie Haze, Jayden Lee, Chastity Lynn and crew get into the hot and heavy scenes, they do so with gusto and director B. Skow certainly knows how to shoot long hot sex scenes. Whether they occur on the floor of the store, with the characters standing between DVD racks or in vans, the hot moments are certainly about the best you’re ever going to see. I especially like the rendezvous of Kelly Divine’s “Silent Bertha,” Chastity Lynn’s “Jane” and Evan Stone’s “Officer Derris” (that name taken directly from the original Clerks) and I found myself more or less hungering for, and being rewarded with, a great scene between Allie and Lexi Swallow at the end of the movie.

I found quite a bit of very funny laugh out-loud moments here (there is one great quick sight gag at the beginning I won’t spoil for you, subtle as it is, see if you catch it) and certainly everybody in the film are super attractive, hot, and hung performers all…as you’d always get with a Vivid film.

Clerks XXX: A Porn Parody is really one of the best parodies, and one of the better porn films in general, I have seen in a long time.
