Cast: Michelle Lay, Kimberly Kane, Van Damage, Lexi L'Amour, Randy Spears, Rebecca Love, Steven St. Croix
Length: 113.5 minutes
Date of Production: 4/3/2005
Extra's: Many of you will like the 19.5 minute long Bonus scene between Michelle Lay and Randy Spears from Housewives but as I've described it below; there wasn't a lot about the scene to really sink your teeth into. Personally, I liked the 20.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Mark Stone more since it was made exclusively for the DVD as the movie was shot. It had a lot of sex and nudity as well as interviews by the cast and crew, making it a worthy extra to enjoy for fans of the cast. There were also the usual photogalleries, trailers to movies like Camp Cuddly Pines, Eternity, Secrets of the Velvet Ring, Road Trixxx 3 and others. There were also the usual promotional & DVD ROM materials like promo reels, desktop photos, Wicked Casino, awards and nominations, a DVD catalog, spam, and a protective cardboard sleeve to the DVD case.

Audio/Video Quality: Filthy was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as directed by Devinn Lane for Wicked Pictures. It was a straightforward feature with some decent, if unexceptional, production values. The lighting was okay as were the fleshtones, amounts of grain, and other visual aspects. The composition of the shots wasn't always favorable to the cast since the editing left some weak scenes in and the original photography showed many little flaws that could've been better hidden. There weren't any compression artifacts that I could see but it was definitely a bit weaker looking than most Wicked Pictures movies look these days. The audio was presented with a choice of either a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English track, a 2.0 German Track, or a 2.0 Spanish track with the English track easily dominating the others in all aspects. The vocals were handled nicely but the music was weak (loud and droning) and mixed in at too high a level for my tastes. The 5.1 aspects also seemed to be mixed in during the post production part of the process since the vocals had no noticeable separation between the channels and the dynamic range was mediocre.
Body of Review: Now that director Devinn Lane has left Wicked Pictures in favor of shooting for Shane's World (maybe now we'll get some director credits on their releases), Wicked Pictures will likely be releasing whatever's left of her previously shot titles soon. The most recent of these is Filthy, a story about a female lawyer that lies, cheats, steals, and engages in all sorts of behavior none of us would dream an attorney would do (cough!). While Wicked Pictures typically allows Brad Armstrong to direct stories centering on infidelity (he's their expert) Devinn claimed to write this one as well as direct it. That said, the movie ended at the end of a sex scene and the story elements seemed to be shortchanged in favor of sex scenes but many of them were less exciting than I've seen from the company in recent years. Here's a quick breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that the men wore condoms and the gals offered a few tricks of their own here:
Scene One: Michelle Lay, dressed in a business suit, leaned back in her chair to masturbate while on the camera phone with a doctor friend of hers. She slowly stripped off her clothes as she jilled herself in this okay but limited scene at the office. As the star of the movie, I would've hoped for something a bit more interesting of her but she looked much like she did on the front DVD cover for those wanting to know.
Scene Two: Kimberly Kane, a bleached blonde with an all natural body and itty bitty titties, was up next as she enjoyed a morning romp in the kitchen with partner Van Damage. They slowly took one another's clothes off as they kissed and otherwise engaged in foreplay with her slobbing his knob in a skillful manner. This included some hand to gland action, streamers, and solid eye contact while the arty farty music played all too loudly in the background. He then popped her up on the counter and banged away at her pussy with her actively pumping back when able. After a couple of positions, he pulled out and dropped a load onto her hairy pussy. There seemed to be some minor chemistry between them but they were limited to a formula that detracted from the quality of the scene.
Scene Three: Lexi L'Amour, a gal with light hair and huge implants, took on Michelle Lay, in the back room at the office as the two kissed and rubbed one another to warm up. Michelle used a large glass dildo to massage Lexi's clitoris and pussy before plunging it deep inside. They eventually swapped roles and Lexi gave Michelle some oral but Michelle was the dominant partner from the beginning to end from the looks of it. In all, I really didn't like the scene much though.
Scene Four: Michelle Lay, now in a black, sequined dress, took care of Randy Spears at the fancy restaurant, initially jerking him off under the table before the two got caught and it ended.
Scene Five: Rebecca Love, a curvy redhead with large breasts and a winning smile, was up next with aging lothario Steven St. Croix on a couch. The playfulness she used when handling his cock, especially in her mouth, was a pleasant change from the limitations of the last scene as she blew him with gusto. This led to a titty fuck and vaginal ride where she pumped up and down on his rod as though she had a deep itch to scratch. I'm not a fan of implants but I had no problem with her extra weight as she showed that heavier gals can be enthusiastic lovers too. My biggest issue was that the two were mechanically screwing and all the enthusiasm in the world couldn't cover it up as they went through the motions a little too well.
Scene Six: Michelle Lay, having saved client Randy Spears a lot of money in a legal battle, celebrated with him in the back of a limousine along side the road. She began by taking off some of her clothes, leaving others for Randy to peel off as he went down on her. She then jerked him off as she blew him, providing a glimmer of hope that she'd offer up a full scene this time. They screwed with some energy that showed not only her talents but her desire to get him off and it ended with him popping a load onto her crotch.
Scene Seven: Michelle Lay, stretched out in a sex swing with a riding crop in her hand, made Van Damage her slave in the darkened dungeon as she dominated him to full effect. She rubbed his cock with her feet and had him service her as she saw fit to get off. This included sucking on her feet and licking her all over, concentrating on her crotch once he arrived there. He then screwed her pussy and ass slowly but she was a lazy lady this time, letting him do all the work. She did start to warm up over time but it was a little too little, a little too late for me, ending by dumping the load onto her face.
Bonus Scene: Housewives: This is what I said when I first saw the bonus scene: "Michelle, a brunette with some nice curves, if not the star material the others seem worthy of here, took on Randy in a reunion scene on a bed. Her oral skills were exceptionally good and he gave her a slice of fun too before they screwed in several positions. I thought the doggy style was great with her ass held high in the air and it ended when she jerked him off in her mouth. To be fair, while she wasn't the best looker of the crowd, she did a good job if you enjoy the more sensual nature of a couples movie."
Summary: Filthy was a movie where too many issues arose for me to truly enjoy the show. The story elements weakened the sex scenes and the sex scenes were rarely all that special. I've seen far better from Devinn in the past and this one had the appearance of being cut off midstream for some reason. That said, it was okay enough to suggest it as a Rent It for fans of the cast but even then it wasn't all that great in my eyes. I'm not a big fan of Michelle Lay (skilled though she may be when she's having a good day) and she seemed to be the focal point of the show both thematically and sexually. In all, it wasn't really the type of show I'm used to from Wicked Pictures and I wouldn't have guessed it came from them if there was no box or credits to identify it.
