Sunny (Lanny Barby)

Vivid Entertainment

Genre: Vignette

Director: B. Skow

Cast: Sunny Leone, Harmony Rose, Anthony Hardwood, Jerry, Avena Lee, Stefani Morgan, Manuel Ferrara, Lexie Marie, Jezebelle Bond, Lanny Barby, Tommy Gunn

Length: 98.5 minutes

Date of Production: 6/10/2005

Extra's: There were five generic bonus scenes from the Vivid vaults but with Sunny so new to the business, they had no other scenes of her working to add as an extra. I preferred the 21.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Ben Hoffman since it was made for this release. It also had lots of sexual content and some interviews with a few of the gals that added to the fun of the DVD that didn't hurt it one bit. There were a couple of photogalleries, a short biography for Sunny Leone, a positions room, trailers to movies like The New Devil In Miss Jones, and a double sided DVD cover on top of the usual spam.

Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: Sunny was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment. The lighting was decent and that minimized the grain and other flaws for the most part. There was a slight bit of pattern noise at times and some shadows left from lack of fill lighting but they were hardly common and I appreciated the variety of settings too. The best part of the picture, aside from the attractive women of course, was the creative composition of the shots used throughout the movie's five scenes. Each seemed to enhance the gals best attributes and there didn't seem to be too much time spent on any specific type of shot (some directors love close ups, other get into weird positions, and still others pay no attention at all to such considerations by Skow apparently did his homework again). There were no compression artifacts and I liked the picture as part of Vivid's push to improve of late. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English but most of the time; the audio was simply a series of generic musical scores. I thought some of them were too loud and others fairly decent but this is an area in need of more work in my opinion.

Body of Review: As Vivid continues to hire some of the best looking gals in porn, their latest employee is Penthouse Pet of the Year, Sunny Leone, a foxy brunette with sweet curves in all the right places. In her first scene for porn, Sunny, she has a series of masturbation and lesbian scenes while some other attractive women do men. I wish she also partook of the male member but this will likely come in the future and she really was a hotty worth waiting for so I won't go postal on the rating. That the movie also starred the gorgeous Lanny Barby and the B/G debut of Stefani Morgan were two more reasons to pick this one up but here's a quick review to give you an idea of what took place in the scenes:

Scene One: Bleach Blanket Bang-Off: Sunny Leone, the hotty on the front DVD cover, began the movie with some masturbation action, to be followed by a short bout of lesbian rubbing with Harmony Rose that took place on a beach set. Sadly, Sunny walked off when Anthony Hardwood and Jerry came into view but Harmony is a talented gal so I gave her a chance to win me over and make up for it. She gave the men very sloppy and energetic blowjobs with spitting and powerful deep throating to make the opener a solid scene. The guys took turns riding her pussy in several positions before she inhaled some of their semen during the two facials, swallowing at least some of Anthony's load (he popped first). It was a good scene with some nice replay value and I didn't think it looked much like a Vivid scene at any time.

Scene Two: Winter Wonderland: Sunny Leone, still looking hot after a magic carpet ride on her exotic bed, decided to have another magic carpet ride in the form of exotic Avena Lee on a set designed to look like a cold ski lodge deck. The lingerie looked sweet on them and they really appeared to have some fun with one another as they licked, sucked, and rubbed one another silly. The music was louder than I cared for but the erotic appeal of the two guys was undeniable to me as they went about pleasing each other. They did employ some toys at the end of the scene but it wasn't overdone like so many similar scenes. I still wanted to see more of Sunny in a non-vegetarian scene but this held me off a bit longer.

Scene Three: Desert Adventure: Stefani Morgan, another newcomer to porn, worked over studly Manuel Ferrara in a desert scene by a car as Sunny Leone masturbated beside the couple. I thought Stefani had a lot of potential to be great but even her unpolished act here was well received. He did most of the work as he snacked on her crack from behind and plunged his manhood deep inside her lovely pussy but with a bit of work and experience, she'll be actively riding guys given her discussion in the BTS feature. The facial was weak though and that wasn't her fault.

Scene Four: Kremlin Trio: Lexie Marie, Jezebelle Bond, and Sunny Leone were up next in a lesbian tryst that had the gals doing each other after Sunny warmed up with a glass dildo. The setting was more mundane this time as an apartment outside of the Russian capital (a poster for the window of it at least) but the lingerie and heat generated by the three was pleasing, if limited. Jezebelle was sporting a new look and seemed to be the dominant partner of the show though all three of them got to play with some sex toys. Lexie's strap on dildo was well handled and I only wish she had been given more to do but fans of vegetarian action will find the scene pretty good to watch a few times.

Scene Five: Kansas Farm Girls: Lanny Barby, the ultra hotty who is also new at Vivid, and Sunny Morgan in a yellow bikini, were up last in a very warm scene full of chemistry and sultry passion as they did each other before being joined by studly Tommy Gunn in a farm setting. Sunny gave Barby a few more pokes before disappearing (which kind of pissed me off) but the remaining duo has always shown some talent in the sexual arts and this scene was no different. I didn't completely mind Sunny sticking to the background here but it sure would've been hotter if she stayed for some penis popsicle. It ended with a facial after Lanny blew and rode Tommy, with each seeming to get off at least once.

Summary: Sunny didn't meet my every expectation since I was hoping Ms. Leone would do guys here but one look at the front DVD cover will satisfy your innate need to toss seed when she kicks into action. All of the women were attractive and the sex was well done in each scene, even the lesbian scenes, although I'll admit there were a couple of stand out performances too. With decent extras and a lot of fuck for the buck going for the DVD, I rated it as Recommended though fans of the cast will definitely want to pick up a copy to keep for themselves. I have no idea how long it will take for Sunny to do men in her contract nor do I know if she'll ever be given a full length scene playing with Lanny but I do know that my eyes were riveted to the screen when I watched this movie and that isn't always possible for a jaded old porn hound like me. Check it out and I think you'll see why Sunny, Lanny, and the others made this one a choice pick by director B. Skow.
