This Henri Pachard directed dirty little ditty is a sequel to the original Hothouse Rose that Pachard helmed a year prior in 1991. The storyline follows Jeanna Fine as Liz Harris, a woman obsessed over a porno starlet named Hothouse Rose (Victoria Paris) who just doesn't know when to quit no matter how much she knows she needs to. Her lust controls her, and things soon spiral out of control for her and those who she seems to come into contact with. Basically, it's a soap opera with some hardcore sex in it and a few moments of awkward comedy, but let's face it, most of us aren't tuning in for the story, especially when you've got a cast as good as the one assembled for this movie.
Here's the required who fucks who and how they do it play-by-play:
Scene 1 – Trixie Tyler And Buck Adams: After doing a strip tease, Trixie gives the wheelchair bound Buck head to cheer him up after she rubs herself in front of him and masturbates a little to get him hard. She uses her tits on him and then sits on his face so that he can eat her out and finger her pussy, before she gets on top of him and rides him reverse cowgirl style. He pulls out and comes on her belly, and she lies back on him so that he can rub her tits and kiss her neck.
Scene 2 – Victoria Paris And Jon Dough: On the staircase back at his place these two start making out. He throws her on the stairs and sucks on her tits, and he slowly moves down south to eat her pussy, flicking his tongue on her clit and her lips and using his fingers on her as well. He drops his pants and she gives him a nice blowjob, taking her time with him and enjoying herself as she sucks him off. From there she gets on all fours and he fucks her doggy style before rolling her over and fucking her missionary style for a bit. After that he pulls out and jerks off onto her chest, finishing the scene as he carries her up the stairs and into the bedroom.

Scene 3 – Nina Hartley And Jon Dough: The mood strikes these two in the kitchen as Jon tosses Nina onto the table so that he can munch her shaved beaver. He pulls her legs up and fucks her pussy missionary style, and then he bends her over the counter so that he can fuck her from behind. He pulls out and drops his balls into her mouth as he jerks off and gives the girl a facial.
Scene 4 – Jeanna Fine And Victoria Paris: Jeanna's obsession finally manifests in a carnal encounter with the object of her desire! Sitting around in their underwear together, they talk about Victoria's past work until finally the heat gets turned up enough that they start deep kissing each other. Victoria throws Jeanna onto the bed and makes her touch her breasts, and then pushes her down and forces her tits into her open and eager mouth. They strip down and Jeanna goes down on Victoria, eating her pussy and using her fingers and tongue on her. From there Victoria rolls Jeanna over, sucks on her tits, and then licks her feet and ankles before moving south and eating out her snatch and really sucking her pussy lips into her mouth.
Scene 5 – Jeanna Fine And Buck Adams: Tempers flare and passions rise as these two find themselves in competition for Rose's affections. They kiss and then Jeanna does a strip tease for him while he sits back in his wheelchair. She takes his pants down and gets his cock out and then wastes no time putting it into her mouth for some serious sucking and stroking. After that she climbs up on top of him and sits on his face, balancing carefully using the wall and the wheelchair to let him in at that perfect angle. She sits on him and rides him reverse cowgirl style but not for long as about a minute later he pulls out and comes on her belly.
Scene 6 – Candace Heart And Tom Byron: Together on the set of a porno shoot this scene begins with Candace sucking her boy's cock. They then move into a sixty-nine for a bit, both of them seem pretty into it as the dirty talk starts coming on strong. She bends over and gets down on all fours so that he can fuck her from behind, doggy style. She sucks him off a bit more and then resumes the doggy style pummeling for a bit longer. He puts her on her back and fucks her missionary style for a bit and then he pulls out and comes on her body.
All in all, though the story doesn't make a whole ton of sense, nor is it very good or even remotely compelling, the sex in this one is solid. You get some quality girl girl action in addition to some great hetero scenes with enough passion to be quite convincing. While there isn't a lot of variation here or anything all that kinky, there's enough heat between the cast members to make this worth a look, and it would also make for a good couples film.
Surprisingly enough, this one was shot on 35mm film, which is odd considering that by the early nineties almost all the porn in the world was being shot fast and cheap on video. The transfer isn't perfect here as there are some mild compression artifacts if you want to look for them as well as some minor print damage in spots, but for the most part this movie looks half way decent on this DVD. Color reproduction is good, black levels are strong and there's a decent level of detail present in both the foreground and the background of the picture. Not a reference quality image, but a decent one none the less.
The plain vanilla Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono sound mix is clean and clear even when it does show the limitations of the source material used for the disc. Some of the scenes are just a little flat and don't sound too robust but at the very least you can hear everything that's being said and this mix gets done what it needs to get done without any really big problems. The funky dance music score sounds incredibly dated but it ads to the fun of the feature and obviously isn't a fault of the disc so much as it is simply bad taste.
Extras are limited to an advertisement trailers for three other VCA titles (Cum Lust, I Spy POV and Butt Blasted 3, a photo gallery consisting of roughly twenty-five images from the film, a phone sex advertisement, an internet link and a contact page for VCA.
Nina Hartley, Jeanna Fine, Victoria Paris and a pre boob-job Candace Heart in the same film? Yep. Well directed and rather steamy, Hothouse Rose 2 is completely melodramatic in spots but still hot enough to matter. VCA's disc isn't going to become legendary but it looks and sounds good enough to warrant a recommendation, particularly if you're a fan of the early nineties scene.
