Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, the industry standard for decades. The box cover listed this DVD as an "Ultra Bit" release, leading me to think it was either a marketing gimmick or an attempt to provide a solid picture 9something VCA Interactive is known for). The good news is that when the lighting was properly handled, you could see more detail in the picture than most releases on the market. The bad news is that the lighting was not always well done and the result was that some scenes had darkened moments and shadows that covered the action. Most of the time it looked good, I just hope the lighting guy wakes up next time. The audio was presented in the standard stereo English, which was generally clear in terms of vocals as well as the generic music used for the feature.

Body of Review: Over the years, I've noticed that VCA Interactive has been able to provide some of the best-looking porn in the marketplace. The emphasis has been on technical excellence and in providing movies that couples can watch (as well as be sold to cable and satellite services). In the last year or so, they have released a number of mid-level movies that lacked the deep extras their feature lines are known for but they still have Jim Holliday making great movies full of fun like, Eternal Virgins. One of their newest releases, by directing veteran Roy Karch, is Love, Crazy, a minor effort made that centered on two fugitives on the run from the law (Keri Windsor and Tony Tedeschi). They stumble across a warehouse that appears to be a great place to hide and have sex, although the law was still catching up to them. If this sounds interesting to you, read the scene breakdowns as follows:
Scene One: Joelean, a lean blonde hotty, and Sergio, had a scene in the caged area of a warehouse. He went down on her, fingering her to get her wet and she gave him one of her awesome blowjobs in return, using her hands and eye contact to get him extra hard. They had straight sex in a couple of positions and she looked to be dripping wet by the time she took her facial. While it wasn't her best scene ever, it was fun to watch.
Scene Two: Victoria, a lean brunette with large implants, stood over Kurt while she fingered herself for his tasting pleasure. I liked how she kept the lingerie on, covering her implant scars, at least initially, and she gave a good blowjob, although not as good as Joelean's, but the sex seemed to last barely a couple of minutes with him pumping her a bit. If I want a scene like that, I'll have sex in real life.
Scene Three: Felecia, playing a hot cop on the trail of the fugitives, and Steve, had a scene on a couch in the warehouse. She deep throated him to start things off and her oral skills are probably why she is fondly used in so many releases these days. He also went down on her but his talents aren't nearly as good as hers so they ended up screwing in a playful manner. The scene ended in the traditional manner with her taking the facial like a champion, keeping her eye on him the whole time.
Scene Four: Dalny, the foreign blonde with the curvy body, and Mickey, also on the trail of the fugitives, had a scene on a table in the warehouse after he locked her in by her heels. He went down on her and she seemed to enjoy his attentions quite nicely, while she wore fishnet stockings and kinky lingerie. Her blowjob wasn't bad and the sex included straight with anal, using a condom. Her hip grinding action was pretty solid during the anal in this warm scene.
Scene Five: Keri, the lead blonde here who was looking very good, had the final scene with Tony in a bed. Over the years, her oral skills have been honed due to the amount of lesbian sex she's had as well as all the blowjobs she's given so it should come as no surprise that she gave a swell blowjob. Using her hand, saliva, and eye contact, she probably could've coaxed his load out right then but there was more to go. He wrapped his rascal and started in on boning her in a few positions before jerking his load onto her awaiting tongue.
Summary: I'm one of VCA's biggest cheerleaders for years and when they release one of their top of the line movies, people sit up and take notice. They have been making more of the mid-level movies of late though and that means fewer extras, fewer sex scenes, and this impacts the value quotient. I'm going to rate this one as a Rent It although fans of the cast will likely want to pick up a copy if they find a decent sale. The picture looked very good most of the time and the cast was well worth keeping track on. Those who want to skip the plot can select the wall to wall feature and those that like the plot can keep it, making it the best of both worlds in that regard.
