A well-meaning nurse finds herself targeted by a handful of would-be espionage agents in this oddball adult comedy, an in-name-only sequel to the most infamous porn film of the 1970s. Nurse Lovelace (Linda Lovelace) works for Dr. Young (Harry Reems), a high-strung sex therapist with an outsized erotic appetite. The equally libidinous Lovelace often helps the doctor as a surrogate, and she finds herself quite taken with one of their clients, Dilbert Lamb (Rick Livermore, aka Levi Richards). Lamb is a nerdy computer expert who is frightened of women but attracted to his straight-laced Aunt Juliet (Tina Russell), and Lovelace is working with him to resolve his anxieties about the opposite sex. But Lovelace is hardly the only one interested in Lamb; he's been working with the government on the development of a new supercomputer, and he's being followed by a handful of inept Soviet agents led by Sonya Toroscova (Chris Jordan), a CIA operative (Jamie Gillis) and his dim-witted underlings, and Ken Wacker (David Davidson), consumer advocate and political gadfly. As Lamb becomes the focus of an underground manhunt, Lovelace becomes a pawn in the game, and might be in grave danger if anyone involved knew what they were doing. While Linda Lovelace and Harry Reems returned from the original Deep Throat, Deep Throat Part II otherwise had nothing to do with the previous picture; writer and director Joe Sarno created an antic ribald comedy which featured no full-frontal nudity or explicit sex and earned an R rating on original release. However, Deep Throat Part II was so different that it disappointed fans of the wildly successful original, and it was a box office disaster, quickly dropping out of circulation while the first film continued to play long runs in a number of major American cities.
