Extra's: The best extra for virtually every fan will be the inclusion of five bonus scenes taken from earlier releases. Three of these scenes featured Briana Banks and the other two weren't bad either. There was also a 9.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by R. Victoria Woodhill, some trailers, a mini-biography, a positions room, a couple of photogalleries, a double-sided DVD cover and some forced spam. For the most part, the extras weren't great but about what you'd expect from Vivid.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as expected. Vivid has long had some problems with providing a clear, grain-free picture due to various issues and this was no exception. The grain wasn't the worst I've seen from Vivid, nor was the video noise but I think the company has a long way to go before I'll stop fussing. The audio was the usual 2.0 stereo English and aside from being a bit hollow, it was okay (with a decent mix although little separation between the channels).

Body of Review: Briana Banks has been touted as the "next Jenna Jameson" by a number of well-paid sources in the past year or so. Her blond hair, large implants, and sexual appetite combined with her attractive face make her something of an heir to the Vivid throne that Jenna now occupies so I can see why they'd make such claims. Personally, I find her a bit too lean but I know a lot of friends bothered me to get autographs from her earlier this year (sorry guys, and gals, our schedules never worked out) so I can accept that she's a hot property. Her latest release from Vivid is Ticket 2 Ride, a little movie that really didn't star Briana except for a couple of scenes. The movie actually centered on Evan and Trevor as two janitors that were goofing off and dreaming of their own amusement park; Boobarama. In the park, they figured they could get attractive playmates to satisfy every customer's desire. In the end, they were the only two that didn't get laid, a rarity in porn, but the vignette style seemed to work more often than not. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast if you're interested:
Scene One: Briana, the blonde hotty on the front DVD cover, and Mario (a Rocco clone), had a scene on a platform of a darkened room. The two weren't engaging at full speed to start off, preferring to increase the tempo slowly at first but the oral was still very warm between them. She only gave him a little bit of a titty fuck before he started hammering away at her tight pussy too (several positions at that); ending it all with him jerking off on her chest. It wasn't a bad scene to enjoy a few times.
Scene Two: Dolorian, an even more attractive blonde, started off her scene by choosing Chris, who promptly tore off her business attire to find a fishnet outfit underneath. He took to her crack orally like a fish to water and she responded in a very vocal manner. She then tore his clothes off and satisfied him orally with a passion I haven't seen from her in quite a while before she jerked him off with her feet. Eventually, he took the pussy plunge and drove it home balls deep inside her, something she apparently liked if you believe her screams. They continued on before he jerked off into her mouth. Whew!
Scene Three: Ana, the freaky-hot blond with no limits, and Dru, a brunette that is super popular in Germany (I'm told), had a lesbian scene together on the platform mattress. They licked, sucked, masturbated, rimmed, and used toys like crazy on one another in a good, if not awesome, scene. I would've liked it better if they gals had been as kinky as I've known them to be but they did have some chemistry here that I can't deny.
Scene Four: Nicole, one of the treasures of porn these days, had a scene with her husband Voodoo and Rafe on the platform bed. She started off by teasing Voodoo and then aggressively toying with Rafe, each of whom showed quickly how much they wanted her for some fun. She did the two cock in the mouth blowjob action as well as let Rafe go down on her as Voodoo boned her (he seemed to lick Voodoo's dick a few times; by accident?!?) and it ended when they jerked off onto her lovely face and body.
Scene Five: Briana, still looking fresh, had a scene on the bed with her real life boyfriend, Bobby. The chemistry was undeniable as the two went at one another, first with him fingering her and providing some oral lubrication. She gave him some head and rimmed him as he jerked off before he tapped that fine pussy and ass. It ended after he jerked off into her mouth in this decent scene.
Summary: I'm going to give this one a rating of Recommended because the cast, the decent extras, the heat of the scenes, and a host of other intangible factors. It could've used better picture and audio qualities but neither got in the way of the fun here. For the most part, fans of Briana Banks will be happy with this release, I just wish it had more scenes of her in action. As a side not, the writer of the movie was the cute blonde performer known as Wendy Divine, proving she has other talents to contribute to the porn world.
