Audio/Video Quality: Jack's Teen America: Mission 7 was presented in a 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio. The colors were accurate, the fleshtones solid, and the levels of grain very acceptable due in part to solid lighting. Fans of the series will already know that the composition of the shots virtually always enhances the look of the gals and this volume was no different. There were no compression artifacts this time and none of the previously mentioned video noise but it was the attention to composition that enhanced the performers the most. 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 above average for porn and a step in the right direction.

Body of Review: Fans of the comedic Jack's Playground series have long come to realize that the humor, playfulness, and interesting cast choices of the series have won notice and acclaim throughout the industry. In an attempt to provide something a little more geared to gonzo fans though, something extra was needed and that's the subject of today's review of Jack's Teen America: Mission 7. Like Teen America 6 and the previous volumes before it, the series centers on a fictional teen beauty contest where the main goal seems to be who can milk the nuts of a sound man better than anyone else. The actual premise was that "Jack" (played by Robbie D.) was kicked out of his wealthy parent's house and told to get a job. Working for a living proved to be a pain so he ended up taping a series of porn scenes with gals vying for the mythical crown to the beauty contest but that theme is utilized to varying levels depending on the volume of the movie (I think a bit more done with it could work better). In any case, unlike the Jack's Playground series that typically only lasts less than 90 minutes (it's major weakness in terms of providing fuck for the buck quantity), this series has usually offered up over two hours of action with some super fine women. The strength of the show though lies in the action so here's a quick look at the series many fans have been cheering on, noting that no condoms are used in the scenes:
Scene One: $ista Luv: Marie Luv, the black gal featured on the middle of the front DVD cover, was up first. She played a piece of "hood" trash with the usual attitude about winning, having already spent her prize money, regardless of her weak chances at winning the beauty pageant. She looked rough at first, sporting her trademarked gap in her front teeth and lean body, changing into a sexier outfit after finding out the interview was "official". Her scene partner was Chris Charming, not my favorite guy (he's okay but something about him never seems to work well enough with the ladies), making this scene potentially disastrous considering my limited desire to see Marie in action again. To her credit, she gave some solid oral and her legs looked very nice; Robbie has a bit of talent for getting gals to look better and this was but one example. She did some fair anal with ATM (ass to mouth) here, although nothing out of the ordinary compared to many other anal queens. He tapped her pussy too and ended with a pop shot to the mouth so her fans will be happier than I was to see this scene.
Scene Two: Interview already in progress: Vanessa Lane, skipping the interview in favor of some active sexual playing with scene partner Jean Val Jean, was up next to offer her attractive self for the contest. She was handcuffed behind her back, wearing a collar, and verbally begging for some of his meat to suck, which he graciously provided in the sloppiest of ways. She looked born to suck cock, gagging him down all the while, and leaving lots of streamers all over the place. Fans of oral will love this aspect of the show, especially compared to the more mechanical style by Marie as described above. He then warmed her up with some toys and rubbing, filling her ass with a glass dildo to prepare it for the coming onslaught. The anal was a bit slower than usual but this provided a bit more heat for those of you who enjoy seeing gals that appear to be less experienced. She did warm up to it though and was soon riding him in reverse cowgirl style on the steps to the bedroom as though she were increasingly turned on. This energetic, chemistry filled scene, ended when she jerked out his load and licked it off her abdomen. Yum!
Scene Three: Austin and those Titties: Austin Kinkaid, the busty brunette on the left hand side of the front DVD cover, claimed to be 24 year years old (hardly a teen but still young enough for me) as well as "an exotic dancer" during her interview. Her curvy body and strong legs combined with her attractive face and outgoing personality also worked well for me as her playful demeanor bubbled all over the place. After some of the best tease footage of the movie, she took on Richard Raymond; not as good a meat puppet as Chris Charming (read between the lines). For those of you that loved the movie Beauty and the Beast as children, this updated version will likely work on some deep level for you even more than it should given his attributes. In any case, while I'm not a fan of implants, she reminded me of nothing less than a younger version of the gorgeous Sydnee Steele (appropriate timing considering the eminent departure from porn by the lovely gal from Dallas, TX); making the scene fun for me on that level too. Each did oral on the other but I liked her ass rubbing on his cock more than the very short blowjob due to the visual appeal (neither did much oral either). She rode him a bit mechanically in her sweet looking pussy and it ended with a facial (hitting her eye among other things) but I thought she showed plenty of potential and I hope to see a lot more of her in the future.
Scene Four: Tiffany, pipe groupie: Tiffany Holiday, dressed up like a geek with large catwoman glasses, a white shirt, and a black skirt, showed off her collection of "fuck guitars"; guitars she got from guys she had sex with. The tease idea this time didn't work as well as in the last scene but partner Chris Charming didn't seem to mind as he lubed her up with some saliva. She then inhaled his penis in her mouth, showing a bit of skill in doing so but nothing like I had hoped for after seeing her elsewhere. Her dirty talk did work wonders though and fans of gals that look like they come from next door (as in "girl next door") will find her look as appealing as the local stripper they dropped a couple hundred bucks on for a handjob in the darkened club. The action then moved on to him opening her ass with some large blue colored balls (whomever came up with the idea of having a sex toy in the shape of "blue balls" certainly had a twisted sense of humor) with him screwing her pussy until he pulled them out of her. She then did anal with much more gusto than the vaginal action, with some ATM to liven things up a little. In short, the scene got better as it progressed, building a sense of momentum culminating in the pop shot to her face at the end.
Scene Five: Piggies Have Birthdays Too: Katja Kassin, the red head on the right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next. She's been a personal favorite of mine for a long time for her powerful anal performances, the sheer energy she displays in her scenes, and a look that proves a bit of meat on the bones is preferable to the skinny gals the industry seems to offer up all too often. She claimed to be 25 years old (and Robbie started laughing about it) but aside from the "teen" theme of the series, it should be noted that a number of substantially older gals have given great performances in the past too. Her partners were Scott Nails and Chris Charming; and she gave them some head after they handed her a birthday cake. The oral wasn't up to Katja's usual standards but it was better than I've had in a long time so I supposed I shouldn't be too picky. They stuck a large anal plug up her ass and tore her fishnet stockings to access her from behind as she took turns with the guys. She was right at home with the various sex acts and managed to show some energy but again, it was somewhat less than I expected too. She handled the short DP well and showed why she was the anal performer of the movie when energetically bouncing up and down on a meat stick in her ass (with a little more DP action as well). She did some taste testing and the decent, if not best scene she's done in a while, act ended with a double facial.
Summary: Jack's Teen America: Mission 7 was the shortest and perhaps sexually weakest volume in the entire series so far but it still rated a Recommended from me. The technical values were solid, the cast was decent in most cases (at least in terms of the women and their sexual skills), and the theme elements played as well as ever although the extras were still limited, the running time under two hours, and a couple of scenes were not as pleasing as I had hoped. In all though, aside from the artistic productions Digital Playground has been offering up of late, this series is probably the best thing they have consistently offered. I only hope that volumes 8 and beyond polish the edges a bit more though I'm sure the upcoming blockbuster Pirates is going to take a lot of the company's focus (and rightfully so given the budget, cast, and media attention it has already achieved).
