XCritic's Advice: Skip It

Secret Lives

VCA Pictures

Genre: Feature

Director: Fred J. Lincoln

Cast: Brooke , Mick Blue, Alexis Malone, Billy Glide, Tanya James, Jynx, Brian Surewood, Sergio, Lily Thai, Trevor
Non-sex role by: Barrett Blade

Length: 93.5 minutes (feature), 71.5 (wall to wall option)

Date of Production: 11/6/2003

Extra's: The extras were rather minimal this time with three short biographies, three trailers, a photogallery and wall to wall option for the movie itself (where you don't watch the acting parts, just the sex), I really can't say there was a lot of value-added content this time.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as expected. Some of the lighting was substandard but most of the time, the grain was minimal, the video noise nonexistent, and the picture crisp and clear. I saw no compression artifacts and was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the visuals here. The audio was presented in 2.0 stereo English. It was clear and generally well done although the music was extremely cheesy and lame.

Body of Review: VCA is known far and wide for quality productions and has been for years. While they now focus their resources on a few bigger budget releases and the rest of their movies get a bare bones release, they still make some good porn. Their latest bare bones movie release is Secret Lives, a movie that looked at a young gal, played by Brooke, who searched for her long lost father. The box cover said: "Hot young newcomer Brooke plays Mandy, a young woman who gets sexually sidetracked while on a search for her real father. As soon as she encounters a few of the kinky people who run in her dad's crowd - like her stepmom (Alexis Malone) and her boy toy (Mick Blue) - Mandy knows she's going to have her hands (and other body parts) full! The closer she gets to her old man, the hotter the action becomes as evidenced by Mandy's torrid "interview" with Tanya James, who proves worthless as an informant but invaluable in the sack! From an anally-obsessed biker slut (Jynx) to a safecracker with a thing for asscracks, Mandy puts together the clues that eventually lead her to dear ol' Dad - and the discovery that the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree." For the most part, this was directed at couples that haven't watched a lot of porn rather than a seasoned reviewer like myself. I have issues with how Tanya James was portrayed as the lead here and the acting was terrible (thank heavens for the wall to wall feature-spare yourselves!!!) but fans of the cast may like it more than I did. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by the cast:

Scene One: Brooke, the real lead of the movie and an attractive gal with a lean body and ample breasts, had a scene with Mick on the porch by the pool. They did some titty fucking and oral to one another, with her hand-assisted blowjob pretty warm if short to start off the fun. He then spent a bit of time going down on her; licking each fold as he kept his eyes on her to make sure he was hitting the right spot. He then screwed her pussy in a few positions before rubbing out a load onto her chest. This wasn't exactly the best scene I've watched today but she was attractive enough that I didn't mind.

Scene Two: Alexis, a gal that looked a lot like Jessica Drake but with lighter hair, and Billy, had a scene on a bed after they got frisky with one another. They stripped off their clothes and he went down on her, showing more energy than the last scene right up front. He rimmed her too and that was pretty hot to watch as she got very wet, and appreciative. Her blowjob showed just how appreciative of course as she used her hand and took her time getting him hard enough to cut diamonds. They then screwed but it sure didn't last long; I'm guessing the oral nearly sent him over the edge and he finished up quickly by jerking off to her abdomen.

Scene Three: Tanya, the gal on the front DVD cover and well known hotty, had a lesbian scene with Brooke on a desk. Tanya has the most attractive face of the entire cast, bar none but her body was just too lean for my tastes as Brooke went down on her and used her hand to get the gal off. Tanya gave some oral loving too but didn't appear very talented as she went through the motions of the act, then feeding her juice-coated fingers to Brooke. Toys were then deployed to each gal to finish each other off. It was limited but I'm a fan of Tanya's so I happened to like it.

Scene Four: Jynx, a brunette perfectly cast as a biker slut, teased Brian into spanking her and taking her in his workshop area by showing off her round ass. He then went down on her and she reciprocated by blowing him fairly well (with him grabbing her head to force her down on it). They screwed vaginally and anally with a decent amount of chemistry and heat before he jerked out a large load onto her face and chest.

Scene Five: Brooke, in an attempt to distract Sergio, had sex with him in a diner by the counter. She gave a much better blowjob this time, savoring the taste and working the shaft like a seasoned professional. In return, he pumped his dick in and out of her like a piston on a 67 Chevy doing a quarter mile race (i.e.: fast). They only did it in a few positions and it wasn't the best boning of the show (her oral was great but it was all downhill from there) is the nicest way I can put it.

Scene Six: Lily, dressed up like a massage parlor sex worker, gave Trevor a blowjob as he laid flat on his back. The combination of hand and mouth seemed pretty fun but it got much better when she disrobed and climbed aboard his penis. She rode him like she had a mission and it was pretty warm even with his half-hearted attempts to spank her a few times. She then moved into a 69 position and did some PTM before using a toy on her ass as he fingered her (and she jerked him off). She took a facial but I was more surprised that she didn't let him take her anally.

Summary: I like most of the cast here and the picture looked good but I can't honestly give this one a rating of more than a Skip It due to the general lack of heat, the weak scenes, and the limited amount of fuck for your buck. There are so many VCA releases that are worlds better than this one that I'd be cheating you if I rated it any higher. I got the impression that director Fred Lincoln, who wasn't even credited in the credits at the end of the movie or on the box, has a few secrets about this one but he's keeping them to himself so I can't share them with you, sorry.
