Extras: The best extra was easily the bonus blowjob scene I described below between Nikki Grind and John Strong. There was also a 10 minute montage of footage called Behind the Scenes with some interviews and additional sex, nudity, and humor. Naomi and Flower Tucci had some especially good footage but I'm a fan so your mileage may vary. The photogallery, cumshot recap, and double sided DVD cover (advertising only on the second side) filled out the other extras.
Audio/Video Quality: Ass 2 Mouth 4 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director John Strong for release by Platinum X Pictures. As is usually the case, the lighting was fine and this limited the amount of grain to a bare minimum (as expected). The composition of the camera angles wasn't always the best it could be to enhance the look of the ladies but the editing and other aspects of the show covered most of the flaws well enough to keep me from complaining too loudly. There was a light watermark on the lower right hand corner but it was smaller and lighter than the older ones some companies used to position there and I barely noticed it when watching the movie. The DVD had no compression artifacts and seemed to be mastered fairly well too. The audio was presented in the standard 2.0 Dolby Digital but the vocals, while clear, were nothing great to speak of and about what I expected from a gonzo production.

Body of Review: John Strong is one of the last remaining directors at Platinum X Pictures but this does not mean he is any less qualified at showcasing hot young ladies enjoying sex like they are on fire. His track record may not be as strong while directing but he benefits by not having to rely on as many mope squad members since he usually participates in the scenes, bringing his brand of energy and enthusiasm that often makes the difference between a fair scene and a good one. His latest release is Ass 2 Mouth 4, a series of gonzo scenes where the ladies do anal and ATM (ass to mouth) with a nice selection of women on hand to appreciate. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were worn and that some of the scenes were very good indeed:
Scene One: Alicia Angel, a skinny brunette in a tiny pink & black bikini (with neon pink fishnet stockings), was up first as she crawled up the stairs and down the hallway to reach a barstool to sit on. That she tasted her ass was no surprise considering the theme of the show, nor was it surprising that she took on both Michael Stefano andJohn Strong as her partners. John took her first, stretching her ass with some purple anal beads and feeding them to her as part of the warming up exercises. This continued with a red anal plug and Michael assisting in the process, soon finding the two of them providing her with cock to replace the toys in her ass. She alternated with sucking them off too but even moving to the couch where she had more leverage to ride them, the scene struck me as slightly more mechanical than average. The men did all the work and that lowered the heat factor for me almost as much as the fun factor I appreciate in most of John's releases. She tossed salad (rimmed John), showed a cavernous gape in her pussy and ass, and did all that was expected of her but I'm not a fan of passive gals becoming cock socket playthings so the quality of the scene was a one time watch at best. The DP footage was similar and all the grunting she did couldn't make it any better, resulting in her swallowing both loads.
Scene Two: Naomi, the bubble butted gal featured in a recent Blue Room Column, was up next as she teased the camera in her tiny outfit; doing the booty drop as her ass cheeks enveloped her white shorts nicely. The way she made those cheeks clap was hot and her partners for the day, Brian Surewood and John Strong, both seemed to appreciate her physical assets as much as I did given the way they worked her over. John started the process by fingering her and feeding her the juices out of her own ass, aggressively tapping that ass as she breathlessly moaned in enjoyment. He spanked her and plugged away but she initially seemed to be out of sorts as she did not pump back as she has been doing in her better scenes. Whether she had an off day or not, I couldn't say for sure but it sure took her a long time to warm up here. In any case, she was far more acclimated at sucking his balls dry and the rest of the penetrative sex seemed similar (she wasn't particularly active in either the vaginal, anal, or DP). She took the ending loads well but this was not her brightest moment.
Scene Three: Flower Tucci, the hot anal queen kneeling on the front DVD cover, and the lovely Tory Lane, standing beside her there, were up next in a scene where Flower dominated Tory completely. Flower spanked Tory's ass and rimmed her, all the while with Tory begging for cock. The "big fat fucking cock" as Flower put it was provided by studly John Strong, with Tory crawling towards the camera in POV fashion while the top went over the top in terms of their vocals. They used toys to stretch her ass out but once John came into view, both the ladies seemed to go crazy with a cock lust seen far too infrequently in his movies; marking the best scene of the movie in most ways. The gals both did anal with ATM and ATOGM, moving to Flower's usual squirting routine along the way but if you prefer quiet scenes, pass this one up because both gals were proud of enjoying the action and yelling may not convey more energy, passion, or heat; but they had all three factors in spades. The ladies were active in taking the cock and using it to full advantage, with all three of them tearing into one another roughly. The gals seemed to be on the verge of fighting every moment but it was clearly outlined that they were just into the action and that made the scene a solid one in terms of replay value and strokability. It ended with an anal creampie to Flower that Tory sucked out of her ass, flavored by the next round of squirting that Flower added to the session for the close.
Scene Four: Haley Scott, one of the cutest anal princesses I've watched in recent times, was up next in her form fitting lingerie on that natural body of hers in the living room. If you like your ladies petite, she'll fit the bill, though her ass has always seemed to be curvier than the rest of her. After some minor teasing, she took care of Brian Surewood and John Strong, with the scene including some of the toy action established previously. Haley has never seemed to shy away from anal or ATM action so she made a perfect choice for the movie, using a playfulness and enthusiasm that served her well as the object of many men's' fantasies come true. Her oral skills were nearly as developed as her anal skills, deepthroating John's rod far better than a small gal like that should be able to do. It was a messy hummer and when she crawled to get some loving from Brian on the puke green couch, he reveled in getting to work her over. The contrast between her milky white skin and their tans served her well as the type of unobtainable lady that they would never have been able to fuck outside of porn; but her positive attitude always made it seem like she was into the sex for the sake of sex rather than the money; propelling the fantasy of porn that much more. She aggressively rode their cocks and did a DP, showing a huge gape as they stretched her to capacity. The fine scene ended when she took their loads into her mouth and swallowed.
Scene Five: Havana Ginger, an exotic gal with a fleshy ass and huge areolas, was up last in the movie as she teased about in her pink polka dotted outfit before working with John Strong. Her fleshy ass and DSLs served her well working with John, slobbing his knob like a champ and bouncing on him fairly well. I didn't think they had any chemistry together but she still attempted to show a decent act by hammering her pussy and ass down on his cock. The mechanical riding was not bad either as it would've caused me to bust a nut in record time were she pounding herself down on me, with lots of taste testing and anal to punctuate the scene as expected. Her dirty talk also enhanced the scene, as did the salad tossing (her rimming John) but the missing spark never appeared even though she made the most of it by giving all she had. After the final anal screwing took place, he rubbed out a load onto her chest; his largest load of the entire movie.
Bonus Scene: Nikki Grind, a 22 year old gal with an all natural body and cute face, discussed her life in Oklahoma as boring before blowing John Strong. She gave him a good hummer, earning her previous nickname of The Head Doctor, with her pretty eyes starring up at him during the POV ride. She swallowed and I hope to see what more she can do given the quality of the oral she provided.
Summary: Ass 2 Mouth 4 had a good amount of fuck for the buck on hand to provide some decent stroke value but the scenes were too uneven to suggest it as anything higher than a Rent It. The scene with Tory and Flower was great but some of the other proven quantities fell short of the mark, far shorter than I would have guessed they could given the overall quality of the factors going into the show. The extras were decent and the technical values pretty good but some of the ladies just didn't display the type of chemistry needed to elevate their scenes above one time wonders. Oh well, John will almost assuredly make more hits in the near future so even he can be forgiven for not quite pulling it off once in awhile.
