Extras: The best extra was the 23 minute long bonus scene described below between Naomi and Nick Jacobs in the bedroom. There was plenty of tease and lots of heated action with great replay value, making it a winner in my book. There was also a lengthy photogallery, a cast list, a cumshot recap, and some filmographies too.
Audio/Video Quality: Bodacious Booty was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Jonni Darkko for distribution by Evil Angel. Having watched his works for several years now, I can safely say that he has been improving the quality of his work in regards to technical matters just as he has been getting better at displaying passion and heat in the scenes he shoots. This title was another case where he surpassed the visual qualities of his peers at the company by using solid lighting (again, with minor exceptions) that got rid of the grain, video noise, and related flaws. He also seemed to spend some time enhancing the quality of the looks of the gals using camera angles that flattered them individually instead of a cookie cutter approach as in the past. For all these improvements, I tip my hat to his care and consideration. The DVD had no compression artifacts or other flaws added in during the mastering process so it was a nice looking DVD too. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo audio wasn't as pleasing as the visuals since they typically started out with droning musical pieces and moved onto almost always quiet action sequences. I hate rap and thump heavy music in porn, especially when the vocals are weakened because of them, so this was an area needing lots of TLC in the future.

Body of Review: It wasn't long ago that I was on the fence about the skills of director Jonni Darkko, especially having seen many of his works where the cast seemed to phone in their parts. Thankfully, he has spent a lot of time working on his craft, getting to the point where he is now one of the top directors at Evil Angel. His latest release for the company is called Bodacious Booty, a selection of the finest female ass in porn, all providing the kind of tease footage and heated action we'd expect of this diverse set of hotties. Some were a lot more experienced than others but the totality of the experience was a very fun ride with lots of replay value for me. Here's a quick breakdown of the scenes by action and cast, noting that no condoms were used but also that not all of the scenes had anal as the title seems to suggest:
Scene One: Sandra Romain, one of the world's leading anal queens these days, was up first as she teased the camera to the loud thumping bass of the music. She was shown on the lower left hand corner of the front DVD cover with the ample sample hanging in the air. I know that some fans have indicated they thought she was ugly but while she may not look like a glamour gal, her performance skills are off the chart when it comes to hardcore anal antics. Thankfully, her teasing skills were top notch too since she spent such a long time doing it, masturbating and otherwise readying herself for the scene with Chris Charming. The blowjob was as hot as ever with her aggressively working his meat as though she was infatuated by the sheer size of it. This led to her bumping and grinding on it as she rode him into oblivion; first during the vaginal and then during the anal. There was a lot of taste testing with PTM and ATM on her menu, with some solid dirty talk used to really drive home the scene's value. It ended when she jerked him off into her mouth, initially swallowing anything that landed there but spitting it out onto her chest at the last minute. Still, it was a fine beginning to a great flick. Yum!
Scene Two: Tiffany Mynx, a redheaded hotty with more than a little bit of experience in anal action, was up next as she followed the generic formula. Her ass has probably seen as much action as any of the others in the show and certainly for a longer period of time, though I think those of you reading my reviews will already know how big a fan of hers I am by now. In any case, she was another fine tease expert; jamming fingers in her pussy and ass quite easily to ready herself for Marco Duato. Her faded blue jeans and skimpy pink top did little to hide her fantastic curves with Marco showing the appropriate amount of appreciation for her lovely ass by the large mirror. As he worked her pants down, I could see her little thong trapped between her cheeks, with the couple kissing like lost soul mates as they prepared for the action. Her oral was fine, providing the kind of sloppy act that drives me crazy) complete with streamers, spitting, and lots of care to the balls. It was a completely different experience from what Sandra provided but I'd be lying if I said one way was better than the other. Marco ate her ass out, which seemed to enhance the experience for her too; leading to another extremely fine vaginal ride. They did a 69 before the anal and she was once again in a position to show why experience is usually better than youth in porn, though her vocals were good, the actual anal position didn't give her as much latitude to really ride him well before he popped on her face. She didn't shy away from the action or pop shot, draining every drop handily from his meaty member. Whew!
Scene Three: Olivia O'Lovely, Kaylynn, and Rico were up next. The ladies were the couple on the lower right hand corner on the cover with Olivia being the gal bent over (with the bigger ass). Both gals were in great form, each appealing to a different audience; Olivia having the larger ass but Kaylynn being so attractive facially and physically in a more traditional sense. The gals did some of the best lesbian working over I've seen in awhile, acting as though they would've done each other for free. This kind of chemistry really elevates the replay and stroke value, making me almost wish they stuck with each other rather than let Rico join in. He's a muscular black guy and both gals seemed turned on about getting some dark meat; initially sharing his rod orally before taking turns riding him. The scene stayed with vaginal (which was fine by me) with taste testing and both gals staying active throughout the ride. Kaylynn did some incredible oral on him towards the end of the scene, working out a large load that he fed the two of them for cumswapping and kissing. So far, three great scenes out of three: Yes!
Scene Four: Delilah Strong, a gal attractive enough in the face to be a contract starlet but curvy enough that she'd be an asset in any gonzo release on the market, was up next as she teased the camera with her rounded ass. She had some blemishes on it but they were minor compared to the kind of heat she generated with Donnie Long in the bedroom. Her oral was also of the sloppy type, gagging on him to the point where she had to come up for air on a regular basis. Of all the gals in the movie, her and Marquetta (up last) were the only two that I thought might be weaker than average but she did a fine vaginal ride on his cock with her rippling ass doing wonders for my libido. It was clear she was clenching her muscles as she tried to milk him during the thrusts, coming across as yet another hotty in the pussy express (the modern day version of the pony express). Fans of all natural bodies will appreciate hers and while it wasn't the best scene of the bunch, she held her own against some of the most talented ladies in the jizz biz. It ended with a mouthful of semen that she blew bubbles with and may well have swallowed but I couldn't tell for sure.
Scene Five: Marquetta Jewel, an all natural Latina with a youthful look and fresh set of skills, was up last in a scene where she teased in the driveway before taking on Mark Ashley in the garage. This was one of her earliest scenes and she's been tearing up the small screen of late with dozens of releases since I spoke at length with her during the 2006 AEE Show in January. If you like them small dark and hot; she's one you need to check out although as the least experienced gal of the cast, I was more concerned about how well she'd compare to some of the greats the movie had to offer. Her entire act seemed a bit more laid back than the others and this was as much a tribute to how tight she was than anything else. I would've liked her to be more sexually aggressive but by the end of the scene, she had turned on the juice to ride him enthusiastically. While still technically the weakest player of the movie, she was well worth repeated looks in my book.
Bonus Scene: Naomi, one of the up & comers many of you may have heard about, was up first as she teased the camera with her bodacious bubble butt in some skimpy lingerie and fishnet stockings. Her make up was suitably slutty and she seemed to realize what it took to make her curvy body, giving some very naughty teasing that worked as well as any scene could have in the bedroom. It was strictly oral and vaginal with Nick Jacobs, but the 23 minutes were well spent, right up to the pop shot on her sweet ass. I'd much rather have a hotty like her stay within her limits than give a shitty performance by expanding too far, too soon as she's done in a couple of other scenes of late.
Summary: Bodacious Booty was worth a rating of Highly Recommended in my opinion due in large part to the excellent cast, the fine performances, the level of fuck for the buck, and the technical values as complimented with a very sweet looking bonus scene with newcomer Naomi. It might not have been the best movie I've seen by Jonni but he's definitely on a roll these days as he continues to provide the kind of stroke material one usually associates with Evil Angel. If you like tease footage, great looking gals with awesome asses, and active participation by the ladies, this is one you're going to want for your collection.
