*** This review may contain spoilers ***

SEPARATE VACATIONS has that improvised feel about it -early porn where the germ of an idea was enough to carry the team through maybe five reels of acceptable footage including enough sex to send off to the Adult theaters for exhibition. That's not a bad thing: some auteurs like Shaun Costello have retroactively built their reputations around such a starting point.

Opening scene with drowsy Muzak has an older guy in bed with his wife (Kathy Hilton), when she suggests the title gambit. I have to thank Alpha Blue Archives after the fact for their recent belated tribute to Hilton - prior to that I had often confused here with the similarly- visaged Lilly Foster.

This opening scene is of interest because Hilton has to improvise dialog to fill dead air when the no-name (and no-talent) guy playing her husband is at a loss for words. They decide to leave tomorrow for separate trips.

Hubby pulls a fast one, returning home with Suzanne Fields in tow -she acts shy in this role, and really contrasts with the old fart bearing white hair on his chest. He invites her for a swim in his pool, and his obvious seduction technique is laughable. The segue from applying sun tan oil to cunnilingus is unconvincing, but any number of 21st Century oilers (massage- themed porn videos) employ similar tactics.

Fields splits soon after, so hubby picks up another girl out on the street. At this point the clapper-board is included by mistake in the finished print -pretty sloppy filmmaking even at this low level.

He brings the new girl home to stay with him - she is seemingly homeless (an innocent, not a hooker). Action shifts to Hilton bringing Mike home - the farcical gimmick is that both spouses are reneging on the week's vacation premise at the same time and in the same place. As in any farce, they are choreographed not to intersect right away, which would end the piece in its tracks.

Hilton humps Mike on the couch while cross-cutting shows hubby humping the new girl in the bedroom. Most of the footage is soft-core, especially 'cause the old man has trouble maintaining an erection.

After sex, they see each other in the living room, and both protagonists get mad. While they argue on the couch, the two pick-ups get to know each other (improvised). Switch: the duo leaves and Hilton decides to go with them, and her old husband says: "Now I need a real vacation".

Only thing lacking here to merit a decent movie result is re-casting, starting with hubby (perhaps a John Leslie type with temples whitened would do) and then the no-name supporting cast, plus an actual script fleshing out these most basic of situations. Fields and Hilton like their beautiful peers (think the Sandys and Rene Bond for starters) cranked out as many movies as possible but their just showing up on screen is not enough.
