Extra's: The best extra for me was the over 21 minutes of extra sex footage (primarily the edited out scene between Arwen and her partner in the motorbike room from the first scene of the movie). It was pretty heated and I'm not sure why it was cut but it was a solid DVD extra. The front DVD also mentioned that the DVD had an hour of extra footage so I'm assuming that one of the scenes was cut from the VHS version; proving up another reason why tape is dead. Otherwise, the cast list proved helpful, the photogallery was decent, and the same old biography was included along with the coupon for the Las Vegas Fashionistas revue and DVD catalog from Evil Angel.
Audio/Video Quality: Rocco's The Lady and Her Tramps was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by Rocco Siffredi for distribution by Evil Angel. There were numerous visual flaws here, primarily due to the manner in which Rocco and crew tried to convey some measure of amateur look here (this approach works far better for some fans of porn than others like myself) as he routinely does. There was grain, lighting issues, and video noise but the limitations of the DVD were not related to the lack of picture quality this time. The stereo audio was as average as ever with limited dynamic range and separation between the channels but it still allowed the viewer to hear what was going on.

Body of Review: Fans of Rocco Siffredi have long known of his prowess in bed (and on the floor, in barns, on couches and pretty much everywhere else) just as they have recognized his talents behind the camera. His latest release for Evil Angel is Rocco's The Lady and Her Tramps, a lesser flick of his but one with some decent footage nonetheless. The premise was slight and had Rocco and company visiting an old gal with her bunch of hoochie mommas in order to get their rocks off but the show wasn't among the best I've seen by the world renowned stud. If you like Rocco's usual style, along with his choice of average but fun gals, you may enjoy the movie more than I did but here's a brief breakdown by scene for those still interested or into interracial sex:
Scene One: Vivien, a brunette with an ample sample of a butt, and manly Franco Roccaforte, had a scene at the bordello after he played the piano for some of the gals. I thought it might have led to a reverse gang bang but the couple focused their efforts on each other for the most part, fucking and sucking each other all over the place but ending up at the foot of the staircase inside. There was oral and vaginal sex with some taste testing but no anal and only a tease of Arwen and Kid Jamaica (those two in the motorbike room) that was left in the extras section. In terms of heat, passion, and chemistry, I think they did a decent job but not as solid as I would have thought should come out of a Rocco flick. There was some decent tease footage when the guys all arrived at the home but most of that was left for the following scene.
Scene Two: Lucy, Justin, and Lenny, all kind of physically average gals in terms of looks and body, took care of cleaning Rocco Siffredi's pipes, with everyone getting and giving one another oral. They all seemed to enjoy rimming one another and mixing it up as they licked, sucked and fucked around like brothel babes would do. There was some anal with ATM but it seemed to me that oral was the mainstay this time and even though the gals weren't the hottest I've ever seen in a Rocco flick, they were among the most playful. If you're looking for circus act sex or total babes, look elsewhere but this was a scene I think will grow on me with time due to the passion displayed by the cast.
Scene Three: Sylvie, another okay brunette, started off her scene with some nice lingerie on (although needing to fix her stocking). She was prepped to take care of Rocco Siffredi but the scene was mostly a masturbation scene with some oral as well. Perhaps Rocco was tired and not prepared for a full scene or maybe he just wanted to provide something other than a cookie cutter formula as always but the scene was kind of weak in most ways.
Scene Four: The Lady, an older women (seen next to Rocco on the upper middle of the front DVD cover), was up next for a little interracial granny porn with Franco Roccaforte and Kid Jamaica. She gave a weak blowjob before they were joined by the lovely Elen and Sylvie to comprise the next scene more than a continuation of this one (that's how the credits broke the action up and so will I).
Scene Five: Sylvie, the brunette, and Elen, a fairly attractive blonde, took care of Franco Roccaforte and Kid Jamaica, after they did granny (oops, I mean The Lady). The scene included oral, rimjobs on the guys as well as the ladies, and the usual boning of pussy and ass as the gals assisted one another with the action. I'll be the first to admit that this was the best scene of the show and also the scene most like Rocco's past works, but it also seemed to show little variety. This caused it to drag for me at times and I think some decent editing might've helped it a bit in terms of conveying more of the passion the cast obviously felt as they went through the motions. In all, I had some measure of fun with it but not as much as I could have if it were done better.
Summary: Rocco's The Lady and Her Tramps was not a great movie to me and I've been a fan for many years. The technical limitations were not at issue since Rocco's never been known for great visual or auditory presentation so much as heated and passionate scenes but this venture seemed almost like he was going through the motions in order to make a few bucks. I know he has professed to wanting to retire soon but he should be very careful to leave on a high note rather than with titles like this one that I have to rate as a Skip It (and it pained me to do so). The older gal (Lady) really left me wanting to skip past her footage and except for the last scene; there wasn't enough to stroke off to with any consistency. If you enjoy this flick though, please email me why in order to see if perhaps I just overreacted to various elements that didn't appeal to me. In short, Rocco's The Lady and Her Tramps was a definite dip in the quality by this longstanding director that left me cold and erectionless.
