Audio/Video Quality: Teen America 2 was presented in a 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio. The colors were accurate, the fleshtones solid, and the levels of grain very acceptable. There were some compression artifacts at times and a bit of video noise (probably related to the amount of compression needed to fit nearly three hours of movie onto a single sided DVD with all the trailers) but I've seen a lot worse from a lot of companies that provided far less footage. The audio was presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital English with some decent separation between the front channels and a little bit of bass added for good measure. While it wasn't even close to the best use of such an audio track, it was well above average for porn.

Body of Review: Comedy porn has long been a bastion of bad taste that I enjoyed far more than many of my reviewer peers. One of my favorite series in the past couple of years has been the Jack's Playground series by Digital Playground's lead director, Robby D. While it started off a bit weak and still has its share of minor problems, I've grown very fond of the series due to his use of interesting gals, the lack of a set formula for the scenes, and the attitude it routinely displays. Apparently, others like it too since the series has now spun off a reality styled comedy, Teen America 2. Like Volume 1 (I didn't see that one), the show centered around our budding director as he records scenes of hot young gals having sex in an effort to win a beauty contest. The sound man is the stud of choice and they vary with each scene but also help provide comic relief as Robby attempts to showcase the gals. My biggest complaint with the Jack's Playground series has long been the brevity of the volumes and this series seems to have gone out of its way to shut me up (which is fine by me) by having nearly three hours of material in the feature. If you like seeing hot young gals showing off their moves on camera, read the following breakdown of scenes by cast and action:
Scene One: Das Anal: Katja, one of the top gals in the industry this past year (winning a spot on DVD Talk 2004 Top Porn List), was up first wearing the same fishnets and blue shorts she wore on the front DVD cover (on the right hand side). There was a lot of tease footage with her on the bed playing with her perfect ass before the sound guy, in this case Seth, started hammering it as though he won a contest. There was no oral to begin, no vaginal playing around or anything else to distract him from his mission but she did give him some ATM (ass to mouth) at the end. While not her best work, the scene was indicative of her large body of anal scenes and it's no wonder that she is considered such an anal talent these days. Whew!
Scene Two: The Educator: Kelly, a gal with brown hair and a fresh new look, has only recently been doing guys other than her husband and claimed to be 23 years old (so much for "Teen America"). After a brief interview, the guys go back to her place to find her bound up in bondage gear with a ball gag in her lovely mouth as Eric began working her over. She blew him when he removed it and showed more enthusiasm than I've seen from her in just about any other scene (finally! My wait had ended!). She then road him with a fair amount of passion in a few positions before taking his load on her face. While not as good as the previous scene, I really liked it for what it had to offer; Kelly looking like she was in heat. Yum!
Scene Three: The Mail Carrier: Jennifer, the fresh young hotty (claiming to be 19 years old) from the center of the front DVD cover wearing the checkered shorts, was up next. She has had a better track record than some of the others and I'd have given her a package if given the chance. The second part of the interview was with Marco at her place and she took charge as she figured it made more sense to let her actions speak louder than her words. After a brief bit of playing around with her stretchable pussy lips (shades of Veri Knotty, a gal from porn's past!), she gave him a sloppy blowjob that was great to watch. She then bounced in his lap as he screwed her pussy in several positions but her energy levels and passion combined with the scene's chemistry was excellent! I especially liked her vocal yelling as he plunged deep inside her but others of you will enjoy the facial more that she swallowed down like a good gal.
Scene Four: Va-Va-Va-Valley Girl: Nikki, the first gal to be captured solely inside with no public footage, made up for it by acting like a blonde wearing a leopard print bikini top and torn to shreds jeans. She said she was 22 years old (and Robby commented that she wasn't exactly a teen; stealing words out of my mouth) and the act she gave about being a dumb blonde was hilarious. She probably looked more like the typical porn performer than the others here (some of you will like that more than others) and Tommy seemed impressed with her breasts a lot (even more so with her chosen profession). She gave him a lap dance wearing a green vinyl outfit with a chain, white stockings and huge heels that would convince me to part with a couple bucks before joining him in a scene on a couch. It was oral and vaginal with a titty fuck before the pop shot. I liked her moaning a lot but the scene was probably the weakest one in terms of passion.
Scene Five: 2Nd Interview: Nautica, apparently in the first volume of the series, gave a second interview to Mark and Robby at her place in this next scene. She was wearing the same outfit she wore on the left hand side of the front DVD cover (fishnets, pink shorts, a chain collar and wrist restraints) before he assisted her a little bit. Mark has been a solid performer and when they took the show to a bed, I knew there'd be some fun going on in no time. She became a human pretzel as he went down on her (something the other guys didn't do much of) and fingered her to a juicy condition in need of a penis. They screwed in a heated manner and she did some PTM (pussy to mouth) on his penis between positions. This was another very solid scene. Yum!
Scene Six: The Queen's Keeper: Roxy, the British 19 year old (well, she claimed to be 19) was up in the final scene wearing a maid's outfit. I'm not usually a fan of pantyhose but she managed to change my mind a bit. Mark was the lucky stud this time and she proved her sexual talent for cleaning a guy's pipes here. She has long been an exceptional oral talent but that's not her only specialty; she can also do anal with the best of them (almost as good as Katja). He stretched her ass out with an anal butt plug before the anal assault began, using a couple toys to enjoy the process. She also provided an energetic fuck with her pantyhose on and I doubt anyone would be able to convince me that she wasn't having a great time here.
Summary: Teen America: Mission 2 was one of the best releases by Digital Playground I've seen in a long, hard time so I'm rating it Highly Recommended. The visual aspects weren't perfect but they were still a lot of fun and the casting decisions were great here. On top of that, the gals seemed to have plenty of fun and the amount of fuck for your buck was awesome! If the regular series provided closer to two hours of screwing, I'd be ecstatic but this was far greater so you know I'm happy. In any case, the raw passion, the energetic performances, and just the right amount of comic relief made this a solid effort that Robby (and Digital Playground) can be very pleased with. This past year has had a lack of solid comedy porn compared to previous years and I wouldn't be too surprised if a few more volumes like this solidified a place in next year's top porn list.
