Cast: Christie Lee, Tony Tedeschi, August Night, Barrett Blade, Dana Vespoli, Brandon Iron, Roxy Jezel, Steven St. Croix, Lisa Marie, Rich Handsome
Length: 110 minutes
Date of Production: 2/17/2004
Extra's: The only real extra of merit was a 9 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that allowed the viewer to see the cast getting ready for their scenes and goofing off. I like these things because it humanizes the performers for me and that helps make the scenes hotter many times. The other extra was a crummy photo slide show that was weak in most ways.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as originally shot. Like previous Madness Picture movies, the DVD had issues playing on my Toshiba DVD player and I had to resort to using my computer to play it. The color looked good and the compression artifacts were minimal although the camera angles were weak and the grain was obvious even on my small screen. The audio was presented in the usual stereo English but the dynamic range of the soundtrack was limited and the separation nonexistent here. In short, don't get the DVD to showcase your home theatre set up.

Body of Review: Porn is known as much for lame stereotypes as it is for anything else, regardless of the company making the movie. Having watched as much porn as most people on the planet (if not more), I've seen just about everything the genre has for entertainment and that allows me to compare and contrast shows fairly well. Not long ago, I reviewed a little title called Legal Tender Volume 1. It wasn't the best porno I'd seen but it was okay to check out. Well, apparently it sold well enough to finance another volume in the series, Legal Tender 2, a show that had five scenes of varying quality with stereotypical scenarios that have long been staples in porn. If this sounds like something you'd be interested it, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast, noting that only one gal took anal:
Scene One: Pizza Guy: Christie, the attractive hotty on the front DVD cover, started off the show by masturbating on a couch after complaining about life in general. She answered the door to find Tony, her pizza delivery guy boyfriend, ready for her. There was a brief bit of foolishness where the crew interfered with the sex but the couple took over from there. The two do the usual oral and straight sex with her giving his dick the taste test after getting it wet from her juices. The sex didn't have enough energy or chemistry for me but she did look good in the scene.
Scene Two: Strip Club: August, a very lean gal with a great looking face and sweet ass, played a stripper in a dive of a club with Barrett as the only customer. The two mingled a bit as she asked him lame questions and then the sex started. She gave him a decent blowjob with lots of slobber before he returned the favor on her nicely trimmed pussy. They then boned in a couple of positions with some moderate heat before he blew his wad. I think they had a lot more chemistry than the previous scene and the scene was warm.
Scene Three: Locker Room: Dana, the most sexually skilled gal of the show, dressed up as a cheerleader to Brandon's athlete in a locker room. There were more of the stupid interruptions and the characterizations were about as believable as the cast of Grease (the musical movie with Olivia Newton-John) but aside from the minor waste of time, the sex was blazing hot. She gave him awesome head before he took her tight pussy and tender ass on a bench. It wasn't her best work but I always like seeing her screw on camera, even with a slow anal fuck like this. Fans of foot sucking and PTM will have a bit more to enjoy here too but the emphasis was definitely on taming both of them down.
Scene Four: Calling Dr. Love: Roxy, the Asian cutie that has set the world on fire with her steaming performances over the years, had a medical-themed show with Steven as the doctor. This was yet another scenario stuck in a time capsule that got interrupted before the oral and straight sex. I was surprised that she didn't do at least some anal sex here but perhaps she's trying to make a name for herself in porn by going softcore. In any case, she did a decent job with him but it was one of her weakest scenes to date.
Scene Five: Office Whipper: Lisa, a skinny gal with a slight overbite and a look that would probably appeal to a number of guys looking for a gal that disappears when she turns sideways, had a scene in an office with Rich. It started off with her taking charge of him (spanking him with a riding crop) but the focus went elsewhere after the interruption and it soon became a generic porn scene. They weren't bad at the oral and straight but the promised anal was missing and they weren't worth paying to see here either.
Summary: I liked Dana and August enough to give this one a rating of Rent It but the other gals, no matter how lovely, weren't at their best and the heat suffered as a result. The technical glitch that prevented me from seeing it on my home computer set up really bummed me out and I contemplated lowering the rating one more notch but was persuaded to refrain from doing do by a friend that had some fun with my copy. With few value adding extras and the limitations imposed by cheap DVD authoring, you might want to skip this but at least watch the second and third scenes if given a chance (they were pretty good).
