Babyface 2 was directed by Alex de Renzy whose other notable films include, Femmes de Sade, Babyface and Long Jeanne Silver.
Babyface 2 is not a direct sequel to Babyface. And if you were too judge both films solely on their tones. In this regard, these two films are like night and day. With Babyface 2 taking on a more playful too, to its predecessor’s darker tone.
The narrative is told via a series of flashbacks. And Candie Evans is the narrator who sets up these flashbacks sequences. The narrative is briskly paced and the sex scenes have an ample amount of heat. With this film’s standout sex scene being an orgy scene where a male stripper summons Aphrodite and the sexual libidos of all the woman at the bachelorette party are unleashed.
The cast all deliver enthusiastic performances. With this film’s most memorable performance being Jamie Gillis (The Opening of Misty Beethoven, Corruption) in the role of the aforementioned male stripper. And without a doubt, this film’s most memorable moment is the routine that his character performs before the orgy ensues. Other notable performances include, Careena Collins in the role of on the bachelorette and Molly Seagrim, whose character pays homage to the character that she portrayed in the Babyface.
Babyface 2 comes on a 25 GB single layer BluRay. The film is presented in a 1080 progressive widescreen. The transfer for this release was scanned and restored in 2k from 35mm original camera negative. The source used for this transfer is in excellent shape.
