Did You Know?

Alternate Versions

The unedited version of Over the Wire contains a lengthy consensual bondage scene between the sheriff and his wife, played by Griffin Drew. She is cuffed hands in front and bends over his desk invitingly, an invitation he accepts, then she kneels on the floor, cuffed hands behind and gagged with a necktie while he takes her from behind. This scene is entirely cut from the edited version. See more »

One of the bests of it's kind. Shauna, great as always.
9 October 2005 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

Another success by Fred Olen Ray, the King Midas of soft core. With a great cast including the always sensual Shauna O'Brien and Griffin Drew you know you're into something hot.

O'Brien delivers a great performance and looks as hot as always. Her sex scenes are great! specially the one in the hot tub and the one where the wife founds her husband having sex with Shauna.

Mrs. O'Brien is in my opinion the reason to watch the movie; any straight man would like to meet a woman like her! The way she moves her tongue in her sex scenes is hot as hell.

Griffin Drew delivers also a good performance and her bondage sex scene is legendary. So violent, so sexy... It's probably the highlight of the movie and one of the best scenes in the soft-core subgenre.

"Over The Wire" has long kinky sex scenes enough to please the audience so if you like soft core, hot women, or if you are a hard core fan of Mrs. O'Brien, I suggest you to get this movie at all costs.
