Audio/Video Quality: Jack's Teen America: Mission 15 was presented in what appeared to be a 1.85:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as originally shot by the talented Robby D. for Digital Playground. The lighting was very good in all the scenes, limiting most of the grain and video noise during the sex. The amount of shadows was also limited, thanks in large part to the seasoned eye of director Robby but also the others who participated on the project (Nick's editing for example). The composition of the shots enhanced the look of the gals in every case although the limitations of the gonzo format prevented Robby from truly innovating much here. Thankfully, the goal of gonzo porn is not to be innovative so much as convey heated performances, something this series has long been established as providing in spades. The other good news is that the DVD mastering was as good as ever and I didn't see any compression artifacts. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English where the vocals were likely captured in monaural but the limited music and sound effects were added in on the other channels. In large part, this being a gonzo release means the audio wasn't a huge concern but the vocals were clearly discernable and added to the heat of the scenes.
Body of Review: Digital Playground has long been one of the best high end companies in porn for a number of reasons and the last year or so has seen them adjust their focus from features to gonzo with the help of the talented Robby D. and his cohorts in crime. It wasn't long ago that pundits claimed the company was lame due to the use of condoms, short scenes, and goofy dialogue so it has been especially rewarding knowing that I was watching the majority of their transformation as it occurred. Well, the latest title released by the director is the upcoming Jack's Teen America: Mission 15, the sequel to the long running series where Robby plays "Jack", a guy coaxing women to have sex with his friends by shooting footage of them for a beauty contest. By and large, the series has been one of the best in porn for keeping matters light and the sex hot, never going too far into circus act sex nor straying into the solo scenes of the Playground series. The object is always to offer up great gals doing hot things with lots of tease so here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting no condoms were present:
Scene One: Tugs and Kisses: Bree, the light haired gal on the left hand side of the front DVD cover with the lean body, was up first in her kimono. While she may not qualify as a teenager, her skill at providing handjobs in her massage parlor made me stand up and take notice as she proved herself to audio engineer Scott Nails. Starting with a general massage and working her way down to his meaty member, she was soon sucking him off playfully (note to self: book a few appointments with Bree) with lots of tongue action to enhance the mood. This turned into a 69 that had the two actively bumping uglies in no time. She wasn't the most active cock rider of the series but aside from wanting her to put on a few pounds, I thought she had a lot of potential (and used it well). It ended when she rubbed out a load to her mouth and gave some post coital sucking. She had some chemistry with him and it was a nice start to the show.
Scene Two: Physical Education: Alicia Alighatti, the brunette with a headband on the right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next as she worked out in the home gymnasium. Her red high heels may have been out of place but otherwise, she would've fit right in with a remake of Olivia Newton John's Let's Get Physical music video from the 1980's. She had enough of her baby fat to qualify as youthful and the workout made her glisten with sweat, with the cameltoe becoming more pronounced as the tease advanced. The funny part of the scene was when Scott Nails was dressed up in somewhat gay apparel but his cock hanging out enticed Alicia to rub him as he curled some tiny weights. After that, he didn't feel so lame and she began disrobing and sucking him off (note to Alicia: My home gym is available for you 24 hours a day) really slowly; as though she wanted him to last awhile. She appeared to have more oral talents than Bree and clocking in at 21 years old, she was closer to the thematic teenage years of the mythical contest too. He then bent her over the weight stack and drove his manhood home, moving to reverse cowgirl where she got particularly active on his shaft. The two moved onto a less aggressive anal in missionary and doggy, resulting in him jerking out a large load to her mouth for swallowing.
Scene Three: Pho My Hoa: Veronica Lynn, a petite Asian with some nice curves and a lack of English language skills, was up next as she posed half dressed and spouted a foreign tongue. This was fine for audio engineer and part time lothario Ben English as the only thing he wanted her tongue to do was wrap around his cock and suck away. The language barrier aside, she left to bring back some bondage gear with wrist restraints and a crop as well as a collar. Fans of smaller gals will adore her as Ben seemed to do when putting her through her paces, moving her throughout the house until it was time to stick his cock insider her mouth. She knew exactly what to do with it as she applied her no hands style to his rod, inhaling to the point where her cheeks collapsed around his fleshy member. There was some POV oral and her biggest weakness was how passive she took to riding him in reverse cowgirl (though she started magically speaking English midway through the scene). They did more oral and vaginal, finishing up as expected in a moderately heated scene.
Scene Four: Again With The Sleeping Bit: Taryn Thomas, a repeat player in the series with the revisitation of her narcolepsy act, wearing a skimpy black & yellow micro bikini on the bed. She kept falling asleep (much like my former girlfriends) but I have to admit that her very attractive face appealed to me and some fun was had in regards to her "condition". The gimmick this time was that audio engineer Tommy Gunn slowly warmed her up as she slept, fingering her ass and offering up some cock when she awoke (pretending to be the brother of a pageant judge). Like always, she sucked him off with a sense of abandon that would serve to teach others as to how to best manage a cock, using a combination of hand, mouth, and energy to really get him hard. As the scene progressed, she got more aggressive with it, Tommy pounding her pussy the way she demanded it before advancing to anal. He found her a tight fit and she gave up the gape nicely before he blew his load on her ass; marking another good scene with solid replay value for the general populace as much as her fans.
Scene Five: Just A Whore, Nothing More: Courtney Cummz, the hotty on the center of the front DVD cover and initial reason for me picking this title up in the first place, was smoking a cigarette in her white bikini by the outdoor pool. She asked if Scott Nails wanted to swim naked and then admired his package before showing herself off to the guys. Her ass was great looking and this was shot back when she had her nipples pierced; making Scott get a full erection as the men played with it. She then grabbed her large red dildo and walked inside the house; soon lubing it up and stretching out her ass ("hitting spleen" according to Robby when Scott stuck it in so far). She did ATM and was soon doing anal with him as he pounded her fleshy behind while she jilled her clitoris. When she then sat on top of him, she impaled herself soundly with an ease escaping most gals doing vaginal, riding him so very heatedly as he lay on the floor. The scene ended when she took command of his cock and jerked him off (with some oral assistance) into her mouth. Yum!
Summary: Jack's Teen America: Mission 15 follows a long line of very well received volumes in the series, none of which received less than a recommended with most getting a Highly Recommended as this offering did itself. The ladies offered up some very solid skills and good looks with the technical values showing once again that Robby knows what he's doing. The amount of fuck for the buck was very high this time too, marking a return to the over two hour mark for the series as it had back in the early days. Starlet Courtney Cummz proved enough to elevate the rating as much as any contract performer could have done (though seeing Janine or Jana Cova would be a nice addition too) and I think most fans will find the chemistry and replay value exceptionally high. In short, Jack's Teen America: Mission 15 was full of fun, fucking, and females that fans will find well worth checking out repeatedly; with some special surprises in store for the next volume of the series (Katja Kassin, Texas Presley, and Tiffany Rayne all in my top circle of talent these days).
