Filmmaker Chuck Vincent's softcore sex films occasionally enjoy crossover appeal, and indeed there are times when this one comes within a few city blocks of being likable. That's an achievement considering the circumstances: Left in charge of the family antique shop while his parents take

a trip, lovelorn Manhattan teen Bobby Delaney (James Davies) receives a shipment of ancient pottery containing a mysterious bottle. When Bobby rubs the bottle, he frees Dancee (Heidi Paine), a sexy genie whose 2,000 years of captivity have not inhibited her use of four-letter words. Bobby rapidly

expends his obligatory three wishes, requesting that Dancee: (1) clean the house, (2) get into a skimpy bikini, and (3) help him find that one special girl, "the kind of love that will last a lifetime." This last wish proves to be tricky. Bobby gets to try out an assortment of women--a party-going

bimbo, a servile housewife, an aggressive movie star, and a shrewd businesswoman--as the genie makes each of them instantly infatuated with him. But while each of the lovelies disrobes with enthusiasm, Bobby finds fault with all of them (the housewife is already married, the movie queen is a

bondage freak, and so on). Worse, Dancee can't remember how to "unzap" the females, and Bobby is pursued throughout the Big Apple by his obsessed harem. Even more troublesome, a crazed professor learns of Dancee's existence, and learns too that if he can kill Bobby before the third wish is

fulfilled the genie will be his to command. But all ends happily after a big catfight: Dancee remembers the spell (which sounds like a verse from a greeting card); the bewitched girls come to their senses and depart, snarling; the professor is imprisoned in the bottle; and Bobby finds his perfect

love after all--the pretty student who has been working side by side with him at the shop all along (surprise, surprise). In the finale, the two sweethearts embrace before the sunset, their love so pure that the girl doesn't even take off her top (more than a little ironic since the actress,

billed here as Deborah Blaisdell, is better known to adult film viewers as Tracey Adams).

It is perhaps a backhanded compliment to the film that acting and not lewd sexual depiction is its biggest problem. Everyone but Blaisdell mugs atrociously. The smut, on the other hand, is largely a matter of talk and mime, plus some rather brief topless scenes. In fact, Bobby's quest for blissful

monogamy is an endearing departure from the plague of PORKY'S-inspired teen-lust marathons ("The more the merrier, I always say," Dancee asserts; "Well, that's not what I say!" Bobby responds). Although the jokes are mostly puerile, director Vincent does achieve a comic rhythm by cutting between

Bobby's various female tormentors as they attempt to seduce him. Trivia buffs can try to spot John Altamura, one of the actors who played the Toxic Avenger, in a bit part as a gladiator dallying with Dancee. WILDEST DREAMS was filmed in 1987 but received wide release only with its videocassette

debut in 1990. (Excessive profanity, nudity, adult situations, substance abuse.)
