Hard Time is an erotic crime caper film.
John Bradley and
two friends steal a very expensive jewel collection. He returns to
his wife (Meilani Paul) only to be arrested. The jewels are stashed
in a safety deposit box, and he has one of the two keys.
Unfortunately, he is serving a ten year prison sentence. He imagines
that he was set up by one of his partners, and takes the fact that Meilani has stopped visiting to mean that she and the old partner
are doing the nasty.
His cellmate warns that he needs to create an
alternate reality in his head to survive prison, but he chooses
instead to escape, with the help of one of
his partners. As he is driving away from the prison, he picks up a
hitchhiker, Devin DeVasquez, who shares the ride to LA, and
eventually his bed. Unfortunately, she was the main squeeze of the
nastiest prison guard of the bunch, fled him, and he is chasing her.
The same guard was
also John Bradley's main nemesis on the inside. Bradley stops off to
thank the partner who helped him escape, and is treated to a lap
dance by the partner's girlfriend (Jacqueline Lovell).
Finally in LA,
with the help of a friend, he locates his wife and
arranges to get all of the jewels and get even with those who set
him up. Then there is the ending, which I will not reveal.
The story here is relatively strong for a soft core, but the
nudity and simulated sex are substandard, If you are a fan of any of the
actresses, you won't be that pleased with their level of exposure,
but if you want to see them trying to act in dialogue-heavy dramatic
roles, this is worth
watching. Devin DeVasquez actually did show some dramatic range.
