Date of Production: 11/22/2005 (box); 11/23/2005 (credits)
Extra's: For most people, the best extra will be the 29.5 minutes of deleted sex footage, even though a lot of it had granny porn leanings. Still, given the advertising on the cover, it could have been worse. There was also four trailers, a lengthy photogallery, some limited filmographies, a cast list, and a biography for Rocco Siffredi on the special features page (and a cumshot recap on the main menu).
Audio/Video Quality: Rocco's Big Mess was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by director Rocco Siffredi for distribution by Evil Angel. Shot almost like a cross between a reality television show and a standard gonzo production, the camera moved around a whole lot and the picture had many (intentional) flaws. The grain and video noise in some scenes as well as the composition of the shots were rarely optimal for the females but given the nature of the movie, I thought this was intentional too. I saw no compression artifacts but the visual aspects of the movie were less about stroke material than a comedy. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English stereo but I didn't hear a lot of separation between the channels and the dynamic range wasn't impressive either.

Body of Review: Rocco Siffredi has long been a lover of women of all sorts of groups and as he prepares to finish up his porn career and settle down, he increasingly tries to show just how bizarre he can be. One case in point would be the subject of today's review of Rocco's Big Mess, a movie using a lot of grannies (more than the advertised 6 in fact), a transsexual male, a dwarf (of midget; whatever!), and a selection of otherwise fair gals of varying degrees of sexuality. The story was of Michael playing an established doctor who loses his way sexually and it takes Rocco to remind him of the important things in life. Never let it be said that Rocco was unwilling to shake things up in a movie so here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Angelika Wild, a moderately appealing brunette in a slinky red dress, was up first in a scene reminiscent of the one from Who Fucked Rocco?, in that she was taken to the men's room to blow a dwarf by the name of Holly One (like Katsumi did in the other flick. Initially, she tried to enlist Rocco into helping her but he was too bust at the 12th annual international cinema erotico show in Barcelona, and told her to come back afterwards. Holly took her in the bathroom, and the rest is written in dwarf history. It was a small dick on a small man with a small load but an admittedly different way to start a porno, yes?
Scene Two: Roberta Cavalcante, a mannish looking trannie, was up next as he blew old Uncle George in the kitchen. I suppose if you've had a ton of pot, perhaps a couple of six packs of beer or a few bottles of wine, he could pass as simply an ugly woman but I'm being extremely generous if you catch my drift. It was a blowjob only scene too and set the stage for the rest of the movie.
Scene Three: Patricia and Veronica Vanoza, the two gals featured on the front DVD cover with Rocco Siffredi, were up next as he took care of them in the office setting. I hated the short hair on one gal but fans of Belladonna might appreciate that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Otherwise, there were some lesbian antics before he started to play with them in earnest, fingering them and getting some head from them as they took turns on his throbbing member. There was some vaginal action going on but then they were joined by "Dr." Michael Chapman, who joined them after he got a special surprise by Roberta (how he could be fooled by the guy is beyond me though) in a flashback. Sadly, Rocco left the trio to themselves as he went off to take care of business. The scene included oral, vaginal and anal with the sweaty black man trying to get his mind off of the transsexual encounter he had in the flashback sequence. The gals took the load to their mouths and cumswapped it finish up the scene.
Scene Four: Angelika Wild, Roberta Cavalcante, Johnny Steel, Tim Brensen, Timoti Hayd, Janos Volt, Black Jack, Tibor, Brian, Peti, Nico Blade, Romeo, and Leslie, were up next after Rocco figured out the mystery and called Angelika. This scene was set up as a scenario where it was Roberta's class reunion and it turned into a perverted orgy. The food fetish action was augmented by Angelika and Roberta blowing the men in groups, never actually stating if the men were drunk enough to not know about Roberta packing a penis (or if they really cared since a stiff dick has no conscience). To me at least, it looked like the line forming around Angelika was far larger than the one around her boyfriend/husband, especially once his secret popped out of his pants. That's when a few of the guys started blowing him in return. About the only action that didn't bother me here was when he started boning Angelika in the ass but even then the large number of guys were stroking off around both of them. The other guys took over though and started porking them, fine for the gay-friendly fans out there but of limited value to the vast majority of porn fans in my opinion.
Scene Five: Lucy Foxxx, Virginia, Niki Dark, Omar Galanti, and Zenza Raggi, were up next in a photoshoot involving fetish attire. Virginia got some early meat by Zenza butthis led to some passionate attacking by Omar in the bathroom by a couple of the fetish models (Lucy and Niki to be precise). They sucked him off like seasoned professionals and he responded by stuffing them completely full of man meat in the pussy and ass with PTM and ATM for those who care. Eventually, Zenza joined them and it got complicated so Omar got kicked out to work with Virginia as he took care of the two grumpy gals. It was kind of a weird scene but reasonably heated for the most part too.
Scene Six: Trinity, Sophie, Sisy, Maria, Helena, Miszgor, Lucy, Omar Galanti, Rocco Siffredi, and Michael Chapman were up in the last scene that had all the twists of a niche porn scene. The women were all about three times older than most female porn performers, easily qualifying for granny porn status. No matter what Rocco said in their favor, other than Trinity, the gals were made for men twice Rocco's age. The sexual antics were similar to most of Rocco's movies except for the huge age difference but unless you're into granny porn, pass this one up.
Summary: Rocco's Big Mess was as suitable title for a movie as I've seen in a very long time. For me, the sex was by the numbers and the need to showcase fringe elements over what works for the mainstream audience sealed its fate long ago as a Skip It. If, on the other hand, you like transsexuals and grannies having sex, this may rate as one of the best movies you've seen all year long. My rating is simply a reflection of my tastes and those of the majority audience that I tend to write for. Technically, the camera work and other aspects of the movie were only a bit below average for this type of show so let your conscience be your guide as to getting this one but it was definitely not the usual Rocco movie.
