Perfectly Legal


by Tuna

Perfectly Legal is an example of softcore couples erotica centering on a brilliant attorney (Lauren Hays) who is a workaholic, to the point of ruining her romantic relationships. She is also an idealist and a champion of the underdog, and therefore mostly broke, since she would rather pursue justice than make money.

To such a lawyer, Allison Thomas-Miller presents the perfect client. Her ex-lover has written a best selling book and a companion video tape about lovemaking, but she claims she is the actual author, and that he stole her diary and published her work under his name. This is Hays' sort of case, and it comes with a handsome retainer, so she signs on. She finds herself with nearly no evidence, and is up against the single, handsome, rich, and brilliant Rafe Urquhart, who has shown a romantic interest in her even before the case. Her job is made more difficult when her opponent's  assistant seduces her assistant, and gets an advance look at everything she prepares for the case.

It's a top-notch genre film. The story is interesting -- more so if you like courtroom drama; the performances are good; the nudity is excellent; and some of the sex scenes sizzle.
