Extras: The best extra was the 44.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. Set up primarily as a series of interviews, each gal got some quality time beyond the minimal generic question/answer session, with a chance to get to know the ladies. There was also some photogallery and tease footage s it progressed and I have to admit it was one of the better such shows I've seen in a very long time. There was also a lengthy photogallery, a cumshot recap, and an attractive cardboard slipcase for the DVD case.
Audio/Video Quality: Daddy's Little Princess was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Mark Wood for release by Combat Zone, his latest label to direct for (and they don't make him use a goofy name like Fletcher either). The lighting was generally good and that helped keep the grain, video noise, and other flaws to a minimum. The fleshtones were accurate and the camera work was generally good with the composition of the shots enhancing the ladies' looks most of the time. There were no compression artifacts or significant shadows to contend with so I found the picture appealing. The audio was nothing special although encoded in 2.0 Dolby Digital English. The processing done in post production aside, the vocals were seemingly recorded in monaural and the music not a big factor so it wasn't a problem but it wasn't anything worth extra points either.

Body of Review: Mark Wood has always struck me as one of the nicest guys in porn but also a man willing to learn from others and try to make the best stroke material he can with what he has to work with. Unlike the prima donna directors we all read about, he and his gorgeous wife (who can have me any time she likes by the way), have long catered to specialty niches and titles that served fetishes that larger companies left untouched. Now that they have a deal of sorts with Combat Zone, I suspect they'll be offering up a wealth of fun titles more geared to the youth market, as was the case with Daddy's Little Princess; their first such collaboration. The emphasis was on showcasing a number of attractive ladies new to porn in various scenarios all having fun with Mark and others. In large part, they succeeded and here's a look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Sasha Knox, a lean little hardbody with light hair and an all natural chest, was up first as she kicked back in a lounge chair under the beautiful blue sky by the patio. Her sole rule was that the guys nail her pussy and ass in a DP with the guys being Mark Wood and Alec Knight. Her oral skills appeared to be honed by lots of experience, the men getting slightly rough as she slobbed their knobs. She got between them and the trio took the act inside, Mark getting some foot fetish action on her to appeal to the fringes of the audience. The men took turns getting sucked off and porking her pussy before she took the anal. She wasn't the most active ride of the movie but her looks and tight body certainly appealed to me on multiple levels. She did some taste testing and gave one moderately active ride before taking the dual facial, showing some potential for future success in the process. It was a decent way to start the movie, though not the best scene of all.
Scene Two: Cherrie Rose, a very cute gal with light hair that could pass for being the kid sister of Tawny Kitaen in her younger days, came from Spicy Talent to work with Mick Blue doing anal. The tease footage by the pool was very appealing and she seemed to get off that she was going to play with Mick, making the chemistry even better than expected. Her oral skills were solid as she worked him heatedly, leading to him taking her from behind as they walked towards the house. Standing doggy is always cool to watch and her limited vocals aside, I understood why they went inside (Mark: "My neighbors are going to kill me.") to the purple couch where she kicked it up a notch or two. He did most of the pounding initially but she then rode him very actively after the glass dildo was stretching her ass. They took the anal slowly but she was into it more than a little bit if you consider how erect her nipples got (and she was nearly as active an anal rider as she was in her pussy). Her vocals got better with time and she took the mouth pop well, providing some post coital sucking and still looking fresh as could be.
Scene Three: Vanessa Lynn, a cute gal with a lot of attitude and some nice curves, was up next as Mark Wood got excited at seeing her fleshy ass. (She was introduced with a guest appearance by Brandon Iron too.) Her attitude aside, she was attractive physically and my only regret for the scene was that Brandon didn't assist in working her over with Mark. The tease was decent and she was no stranger to sucking cock aggressively, nearly working out a load from me in the process. Her vaginal riding style was similar in that she bounced in his lap rapidly, picking up the tempo before grinding herself even harder into his cock. Several positions later, he was jerking off a large load to her mouth and face, completing the scene in such a manner that I had to admit was one of the best from Mark in a long time.
Scene Four: Megan Jones, the major hotty on the front DVD cover, claimed to be 21 years old and from Miami but didn't look a day older than 18 to me as she teased on the small wooden bench outside. Another all natural gal, she was endowed with a fine body and just enough savvy to work the camera over before taking on Mr. Pete. Fans of "big Cuban ass" will appreciate her as much as I did though she needs work on her oral skills from what I saw here. They started to screw vaginally outside but took the show inside once again for all the obvious reasons, her giving it up like a champion in terms of actively riding his cock. I wish she had been allowed more time in the various cowgirl positions since that was where she truly shined but even the pop shot to her face provided evidence that she was having fun.
Scene Five: Crystal Clear (19), Emily Evermore (a native Texan in her first week in porn that was at the 2006 AEE Show representing Sherri's Ranch), and Mark Wood were up last in a scene designed to really end the movie with a bang. Initially, Emily came home from school in her little outfit and started making out with Mark. The inevitable cocksucking and straight screwing showed why she was one of the best lays at the Ranch back in January; her enthusiasm usually elevating the scene as much as her skills did. When they were mostly finished up, Crystal rang the doorbell and Mark went to answer it. She was also dressed in a schoolgirl outfit and he acted nonchalantly about what he had been doing upstairs with Emily; soon getting it on with Crystal on the living room couch. She wasn't as skilled as Emily in taking the cock inside her pussy and he did most of the work but the humorous part came in when Emily (who was masturbating while waiting for his return) overheard the two and ended up joining them with some heated attitude. The scenario resulted in the gals having been in science class together and enjoying some biology with lesbian action while Mark played with their feet. Thankfully, they were forgiving and both gave even better active rides vaginally. It ended nicely with a facial splooging, making a good ending to the movie.
Summary: Daddy's Little Princess was a decent outing by director Mark Wood along with his complement of cameramen (and hotty wife who went uncredited). Given the quality of the casting, the usually fine performances by the ladies and sheer amount of fuck for the buck (both in the movie and the great BTS feature), I thought it was worth at least a rating of Recommended. The technical values might need some polishing up and the casting relied too heavily on getting the newest gals over the best performers on the market but I'd be hard pressed to suggest that the strokability and fun factors were askew with the cost of the DVD and it looks like Dion has another solid director locked into his growing stable of talent.
