Shane's World: Nerdz
Shane's WorldDigital Sin/New Sensations
Director: None listed again but referred to as Brother John by one of the performers (James Deen)
Cast: Trina Michaels, Hillary Scott, Trent Saluri, Alexis Malone, James Deen, Karina Kay, Avy Lee Roth, Rob Longshot, Katsumi, Tony T.; Courtney Cummz (bonus scene only)
Non-sex roles by: Stephanie Swift, Nic Andrews, Mike Maravich
Length: 122 minutes
Date of Production: 8/12/2005
Extra's: The best extra was easily the 13 minute long scene starring Courtney Cummz in a POV scene with an uncredited guy. It was oral and straight only but well worth checking out as she was in rare form here. There was also an interesting Behind the Scenes feature lasting almost 15 minutes. It had the cast flubbing their lines, lots of sex and some unintentionally funny moments to offer. There was also a very helpful section with cast biographies (I wasn't overly familiar with the male cast members so it helped me identify them), some trailers, a photogallery and a promos section that was often funnier than the movie. Lastly, there was a double sided DVD cover for those who care.
Audio/Video Quality: Shane's World: Nerdz was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by some unknown director. I thought the colors were accurate, the grain minimal in most scenes, and the overall visual quality of the movie an improvement over some of the last volumes in the series. The composition of the shots seemed to work well for the majority of the cast in the scenes, another step up from earlier volumes. The audio was presented in stereo but I didn't notice a lot of separation between the channels (the center channel provided pretty much all of the sound) and the dynamic range was about average for the series. The technical values in general were decent but a bit more work might help them even more in the future.
Body of Review: By now, pretty much everyone who likes porn knows something about the Shane's World series. It started with the lovely gal from Seymore Butt's past directing and moved on to other, uncredited directors, as they provided a variety of professionals having sex with amateurs during traveling or other related activities. In recent years, the theme has been to use college students, something that got the crew in hot water (as well as all over the news) but boosted the profitability too. The latest volume in the series is Shane's World: Nerdz where a couple of loser nerds (not the ultra smart ones like those in the mainstream movies) wanted to score some hot porn pussy. This led to them getting a college public access television show, The Retarded Porn Show, after convincing a lovely (and uncredited) Stephanie Swift that they'd provide a completely innocuous show on the channel she was in charge of. The show was fresh and interesting with lots to laugh at so here's a breakdown of the scenes by talent and action, noting the credits weren't the best I've seen from Digital Sin:
Scene One: Trina Michaels, a busty (implants though) blonde with a great ass and attractive face, was up first as she teased the camera in her sheer white nightie before having a POV scene on the bed. It was oral and vaginal only but her tease action and dominance worked well for me as she rode his cock soundly. Her dirty talk was nothing short of great too as she moaned, screamed, and coaxed a load right out of her partner's uncredited dick. I think it was Trent Saluri with her but I'm not an expert on penis so take that with a drop of salty semen. It had a decent pop shot at the end too but she was easily the reason to see the show.
Scene Two: Hillary Scott, a lean blonde looking like the kid sister of the gal shown on the middle of the front DVD cover (Alexis Malone), was up next after the guys picked her up in the van as she walked along the sidewalk. Her partner in the back seat was Trent Saluri, a guy that looked a little like a young Luke Ford, with them getting it on as they traveled down the road. I always like seeing public sex (particularly if it involves me and I don't get caught) but even though she wasn't my type, I liked her here as much as any other scene I've seen this actively working pornstar has made lately. They also screwed after the oral and she was very aggressively a participant of the scene (even more than usual). The pop shot was kind of weak but it was a good scene nonetheless.
Scene Three: Alexis Malone, the blonde on the front DVD cover with the all natural body, was up next as she engaged in sexual activity with James Deen in his dorm room bed. She gave him a sloppy blowjob with drool all over the place to start off the action and was soon getting hammered in her tight pussy by his penis. While she won't win any Academy Awards for her performance, I thought she had some measure of fun with him in the scene. She wasn't as passionate as Hillary in how she rode him but it was a sweet ride nonetheless and I could easily see why she was picked to be in the movie. It ended with him jerking off to her ass.
Scene Four: Karina Kay, the hotty on the right hand side of the front DVD cover wearing blue shorts, was up next as she had Trent Saluri on the bed. The scene began out of a funny skit with director Nic Andrews (looking like he dropped 85 pounds from the last time I saw him) where she had touretts syndrome. Trent got to enjoy her orally and vaginally after being forced to smell Nic's armpit (ewww). She gave a decent performance here and while the lighting wasn't all that great at times, most of the action was watchable. He pulled out to pop on her stomach and I liked this scene as well.
Scene Five: Avy Lee Roth, the hotty seen on the upper left hand side of the front DVD cover, was up with slacker Rob Longshot, in this take on the old pizza delivery gimmick. She looked fantastic with her long black hair, curvy body, and winning smile although he looked like the type of guy you'd shoot in the alleyway if he approached you for change. The gag worked and she blew and rode him (vaginally only) on the creaking couch before he dropped his wad on her ass. It did have an appropriate ending though when her "husband" beat him silly.
Scene Six: Katsumi, the gal in a tennis outfit on the lower left hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next with another goofy slacker, Tony T. Okay, this slacker I recognized and while he's about as lame as any other bottom of the barrel pick of male in porn. Overall, the scene was funny with the usual oral and straight sex after some hilarious tennis lessons on the court. Too bad the sex didn't take place outside since the lighting was kind of weak much of the time but she was looking as fit as ever and the pop shot to her face was okay.
Summary: Shane's World: Nerdz was worth a rating of Recommended for the way it offered up not only some very funny skits as the guys went about looking to score some hotties but also the sex itself. The production values weren't the best I've seen and the extras could've been more complete but I found myself wanting to watch a few scenes over again, right after watching the movie the first time. In all, I think a lot of you will enjoy the approach to sex this one took and I hope the folks in charge will run with the concept in future outings given the positive aspects this one displayed. Shane's World is like a very good adult version of Wayne's World except that it loses the gimmicks in favor of a lot of laughs and good sex.
