Length: 136.5 minutes
Date of Production: 2/13/2005
Extra's: My favorite extra was an 8.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that gave the cast some down time to goof off. It wasn't the best BTS feature I've seen but I enjoyed it nonetheless. There were also a series of interviews with the gals, starting with an 8.5 minute talk with Michelle Banks, moving onto a short 1.5 minute long discussion with Nomi, 3 minutes with Pamela Princess, 5 minutes with Trina Michaels, and a couple of minutes with Vanessa Lane. Next up were limited biographies for the entire cast (although pictures of the guys would've been helpful), a photogallery, a pop shot compilation from the scenes, spam, a double sided DVD cover, and some trailers.
Audio/Video Quality: Mother Fuckers was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by director Francois Clousot (they dropped his last name for some reason though) for Mayhem. The lighting was almost always solid, the composition of the shots favorable to the look of the women, and the colors accurate with only a moderate amount of shadows. There were numerous compression artifacts and slight amounts of video noise but nothing so bad as to drop my rating overall of the DVD. The stereo audio seemed to be about average in most ways with little separation and dynamic range but at least the vocals were discernable.

Body of Review: Mayhem's line of gonzo porn for Sin City has drawn a lot of acclaim in recent months as the company's various directors seem to be on the same page about trying to break free from being considered a second tier producer of porn. I've found more than a little to like and while I don't think Evil Angel or Red Light District have any immediate concerns; the writing is on the wall that companies Mayhem will eventually take away market share if they don't already do so. Their latest release is Mother Fuckers, a title that had each of the five gals play married women in the mood for love outside of their matrimonial vows, typically with partners or friends of their husbands. The sex included a lot of anal (each scene had some) with a few decent performances by the cast of mostly attractive gals. If this sounds good to you, here's a breakdown of the action by cast and action, noting that none of the performers used condoms:
Scene One: Vanessa Lane, a 21 year old lean brunette that loves anal (and will do anal for $3000 with strangers), had a scene in a kitchen with Steve French involving her "pie". It was pretty straightforward with her giving him some energetic head using her hand to start off the fun. She maintained her energy in the various vaginal positions but the anal seemed to cause her some pain so she let him do the majority of work then. They then played with the key lime pie and ended the scene with a facial.
Scene Two: Michelle Banks, a 22 year old brunette Canadian with all natural breasts, has been noted for her resemblance to domestic performer Gia Paloma, and she wore a white dress on a bed as she discussed business matters with Rick Masters and Brad Baldwin. The talk didn't last long as she started blowing one while the other took turns on her crotch, swapping out positions from time to time as they screwed. She went so far as doing a DP with them but there was no chemistry and the energy levels wavered a lot before they coated her face with ejaculate.
Scene Three: Nomi, a blonde that's been in porn for about seven years, has thankfully maintained her lean physique over the years and it looked like working out with Anthony Hardwood in the home gym might've been part of the reason why. Her pretty blue eyes (ice blue at that) have long appealed to me as much as her all natural breasts but she also seems kind of hard at times so it was a wash in terms of attractiveness. He went down on her, she responded well and returned the favor, and the two ended up boning like old friends with an itch to scratch. There was vaginal with PTM and anal with ATM but her strength, as always, was with her energy levels and chemistry that was consistently high end.
Scene Four: Pamela Princess, a gal in porn for a little over 2 years, wore a sundress with a flowery design in the living room before starting off her scene with Van Damage in front of the couch. The acting was more mechanical than the sex which consisted of oral, straight, and anal but the down side of the scene was the lack of energy on her part. The oral wasn't bad but she quickly fell into the trap of letting him do all the work and that dragged it all down for me. It ended with a facial but the scene was the most generic of the batch.
Scene Five: Trina Michaels, a 22 year old blonde that started in porn in May of 2004, had a worn look and large implants to offer as she played with Alec Knight on a bed. Soon after they started though, Trent Soluri walked in and demanded to get in on the action too so the pacing was slightly off from that point on. There were all the usual tricks going on, from oral and taste testing, to the usual vaginal and anal with DP. She was the most vocal gal of the cast but it seemed very fake most of the time so that detracted from her otherwise fairly energetic scene. There was a bit of chemistry at times but it wasn't always consistent so your mileage will vary.
Summary: Mother Fuckers wasn't my favorite release from Mayhem due to the way the cast wasn't in top form, nor were they first tier performers, but there was enough to like here that a rating of Rent It was fair. You may think they did a better job at their profession and you may like it enough to get it based on the cast but there was plenty of room for doubt in my mind to warn you to check it out first. In short, Mother Fuckers was okay to watch once but unless you're a huge fan of some of the gals, the quality of the production as a whole wasn't enough for me to urge you to shell out a bunch of dough, sight unseen. It wasn't bad but it wasn't the best I've seen from the company in recent months so be wary.
