Review: Anyone familiar with classic adult cinema will tell you that Anthony Spinelli was one hell of a director. With little exception his films are well-shot, well-written, well-acted and often emotionally involving. In his hands you would think the story of a romantically-challenged nymphomaniac who uses sex to dull her aching for love would be essential viewing. Unfortunately, even with brilliant camerawork and EXCELLENT performances, Easy is one of Spinelli's lesser efforts.
There are positives to be enjoyed, however. The cast is first rate. Jesie St. James (as Kate, in her first starring role) is energetic and extremely watchable. She is a natural actress and delivers both dialogue and emotion with the same expertise as she moans and screams her way through the sex scenes. Richard Pacheco balances both comedy and menace in his role as a teenage rough. Pacheco is a truly gifted actor who always impresses. Desirée Cousteau brings the comic relief and director Spinelli has a memorable cameo as a letch who comes onto Kate in a seedy bar. The cinematography by Jack Remee looks fantastic (even through the haze of VCX's shoddy DVD) and most of the sex scenes are blisteringly hot. So where does Easy go wrong?

Worth the price of admission is a hilarious catfight between Georgina Spelvin (looking particularly lovely) and Jesie St. James that seems plucked right out of Knots Landing. Good times!
