Cast: Vicky Vette, Adam Wilde, Babalu, Jazz Duro, Bailey, Cheyne Collins, Sabrina, Don Picone, Lorena, Roge, Lola Lane, Jack Lawrence
Length: 127 minutes
Date of Production: 5/19/2005
Extra's: My favorite extra was a toss up between the 5.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature or the individual showering scenes of some of the gals lasting about 5 minutes total (they were short but sweet). I wish they lasted longer but they still added some nice value to the DVD (I would've liked footage of all the gals in the two extras as well). There was also a pop shot compilation from the scenes, some trailers, a photogallery, and a double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Off The Rack 2 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by the talented director Alex Ladd for DVSX, much like the first volume in the series. The colors were very accurate, the lighting well done, but the picture wasn't as clear this time. The composition of the shots was usually beneficial to the gals and made them look decent, but it didn't look as good as the first volume in the series. I saw no compression artifacts or video noise and my overall opinion of the visuals was favorable. The stereo audio was a bit more basic than usual though and while I could hear everything said by the cast and director, there wasn't a lot worth mentioning here. This is true of most gonzo porn but an area I'd like to see exploited better in the future.

Body of Review: As a fan of quality porn, I've enjoyed seeing guys like Alex Ladd learn their craft over time; getting better with each movie as they learn what works best for fans. Some of the time, such directors backslide a bit and this was the case with his latest release, Off The Rack 2, the follow up to Off The Rack 1, which starred the lovely Rita Faltoyano. The emphasis of the series is to showcase women with large breasts having various forms of sex, sometimes including anal, for the camera. The premise is sound but finding gals with all natural (and huge) breasts but lean stomachs is almost impossible so some implants were tossed in with the chunky gals to flesh out the show. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms weren't used but the action was definitely a step in reverse gear for the heat and passion the last volume offered:
Scene One: Vicky Vette, the attractive MILF featured on the right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up first with Adam Wilde in a bed. She didn't give enough tease footage but she still looked great (and not just for her age either) and had the sexual skills needed to compete against gals half her age in porn. The sex was oral and vaginal only this time but her strength, as usual, was the manner in which she energetically called for him to drive his shaft deeper and deeper, riding him all the while. I hadn't seen Vicky in action in a while, thinking maybe she left porn or something, but I was glad to see her back in action with the same levels of intensity she has been known for previously. The scene ended when he rubbed out a load on her ample breasts and she tasted the spew while cleaning him off.
Scene Two: Babalu, a curvy cutie not featured on the front DVD cover for some reason, was up next as she showed off her fantastic tan line on her massive mammaries and ass. While she has a few extra pounds by some standards, guys that like women over the boyish waif look will find her appealing in the California beach babe manner (all natural tits too). Her tease footage was a bit more satisfying and her scene partner, Jazz Duro, seemed to find her as appealing as I did. Initially, there was oral and vaginal screwing but her weakness was in how little she actually rode him; preferring to let him do all the work. She started to kick in her performance during the anal though, apparently enjoying it somewhat more, but the scene lacked the kind of punch I thought she was going to give it.
Scene Three: Bailey, the curvy gal on the left hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next as she slowly stripped for the camera in front of a plain couch. This was another gal with some baby fat on her frame and a few months working out in the gym would do wonders for her muscle tone (I'd do her in a heartbeat but many of you want leaner gals). Her 36D breasts looked real but they've seen better days too. Studly Cheyne Collins was up next as her partner in crime here, showing how much he got into her look by the way he focused on the task at hand. She gave him a short blowjob before he started pumping away inside her pussy but it sure didn't last very long as he came pretty quickly after a short titty fuck. This was one of those scenes that showed potential but not enough to warrant a repeated viewing by me.
Scene Four: Sabrina, another gal not shown on the front DVD cover, looked to be yet another chunky chick with a curvy ass and large breasts. I'm willing to bet that she's a stripper somewhere, probably a house dancer trying to elevate her rate with some porn work, and her act was kind of mechanical too. I'm sure she's fun to play with but it didn't translate well to the camera this time and she took care of both Don Picone and Jazz Duro during her scene. I liked that she was willing to do a DP (double penetration) and some taste testing but she mostly laid back and let them handle business; something that might appeal to the desperate but not those of you who've watched some porn in the past.
Scene Five: Lorena, a pretty brunette with an ample sample of an ass, was up next on a bed. If her tease had lasted the entire time, I could've left it a happy man but she managed to display a playful manner even though she kept taking directions from off camera (something I hate to see). Her partner was Roge and I got the impression that they were either a real life couple or had worked together before due to the amount of chemistry they showed together. She did some anal here and her cute accent was pleasing to listen to as well. Her tan lines were even more pronounced than those on the cute Babalu and the action was passionate more often than not. In all, I liked this scene as much as any of the others on the DVD.
Scene Six: Lola Lane, the black gal on the middle of the front DVD cover, was up last in an effort to showcase some color in the show. Whereas most of the gals to this point were chunky, she was a bit heavier than that and her 34F breasts looked larger in the movie than they did on the front DVD cover. I'll be up front and say that her look didn't appeal to me; I like curvy black gals a lot but only when they're toned and fit, so this scene might appeal more to some of you than it did for me. Jack Lawrence was her partner and he did the usual acts with her, oral, vaginal, titty fuck and even some weak anal (poor lighting made me wonder about it though). At least the director tried to instill some color for those who like it.
Summary: Off The Rack 2 was a Rent It at best for the limited heat, the excessive weight the majority of the cast carried, and the limited fun I had watching it. If you like fat gals that go through the motions, the weaker scenes will prove fun for you but only a couple of them were worth watching to me. Alex Ladd is capable of providing quality entertainment so it was disappointing to see him drop the ball this time but I'm sure it was just a fluke given how well made most of his recent efforts have been in my eyes. In all, look for other releases by him on the DVSX label to be satisfied since this was a weaker effort on many levels.
