I bought this DVD because of some of the User Comments on the IMDb. Some of the comments mentioned that this film has one of the best softcore lesbian sex scenes ever. Ever! That's a bold statement. That kind of endorsement for a movie gets my money. So I bought it.

"Allyson is Watching" is all about Allyson watching. Allyson moves to L.A. and happens to have a hot next door neighbor. Lucky for her, there's a peep hole in her apartment where she can be all the voyeur she can be. Sounds pretty good doesn't it? But I'm afraid I have to tell you that "Allyson is Watching" does NOT have the best lesbian sex scene ever. I was not overly thrilled with this particular sex scene. However, it was still decent. But to say it is the best ever is simply false. Let me tell you why.

You see, "Allyson is Watching" is not filmed like a porno flick. Some of you may be saying, "That's good! It's not supposed to be a porno!" Yes. I agree. But porno flicks have perfected the art of the girl on girl sex scene. In a porno, (and in any good softcore flick), there are two keys to success. The first key is close-ups. Lots of close-ups. Always do close-ups on the girl's mouths. No matter what they are doing, it will be interesting. (See "Cruel Intentions" for one of the best close-ups on a girl/girl kiss ever. Ever!) The second and most important key is to do away with editing. Editing is bad. Evil. Long takes are where it's at. The camera has to stay on the action long enough for the viewer to...uh...enjoy it. Take it all in. You can't have the camera zooming all over the place. "Allyson is Watching" is a decent enough softcore flick but does it have the best sex scene ever? No. It doesn't embrace the two keys to success and instead pretends that it's a real movie. Nobody wants that. Well, at least I don't.

While some people will enjoy this flick because the women were actually decent actors which made their sex scene a little hotter, I will toss this flick in the porno box and let it collect dust. Allyson won't be watching for awhile.

SCORE: 2 out of 4 Allyson voyeurs

What are you looking at?

Oh, right.

Voyeur time is over.
