Extra's: The best extra, as usual, was the 15 minute long Behind the Scenes feature where the ladies posed for the stills used in the photogallery, showed some extra nudity, and had a bit more sex in some cases. Not all of the ladies were given much air time here but it still added some value. Aside from the mentioned photogallery, there was also a cum shot recap, and a double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Big Bottoms Up was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Juan Cuba for Platinum X Pictures. I'm familiar with his work at Platinum X Pictures as a behind the scenes guy and his skills as a full fledged director at various companies has been getting pretty good, even if the rough edges are slow to disappear. The lighting was only average though and this led to some issues with grain, video noise, and shadows yet he did a reasonably good job overall in presenting a solid set of visuals. The composition of the shots seemed to enhance the look of most of the ladies, showing more improvement than any other aspect of his previous works. There were no compression artifacts so even the mastering of the DVD was handled well and some of you will appreciate the lack of the formerly displayed watermark of the company logo in the lower right hand corner of the screen during the show. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo was in English but the actual audio appeared to be shot in monaural with the processing added later on (in the mastering part of the process). The vocals were generally clear but lacked any separation or dynamic range so this is an area that Juan needs to work more on.

Body of Review: Juan Cuba currently directs for several companies including Platinum X Pictures. Most of his work is straightforward and relies on the abilities of the cast rather than his innate ability to coax great performances out of them. His latest release for the company is Big Bottoms Up, the director's tribute to women with bountiful booties, even if some of them did not do anal sex. In all, Juan proved to be a capable director here so I was happy with checking out the disc's five scenes. That said, here's a quick look at the scenes, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Naomi, dressed in a booty hugging green outfit, was first up as she teased the camera with her body in the living room for a few minutes until Michael Stefano joined her. He felt her up and went down on her long enough to get her wet, rubbing his cock along her ass cheeks until plunging it into her pussy. She gyrated in this standing position, taking what he had to offer before giving him some head to clean him off. She did some alternating oral and vaginal before the anal; showing how active she could be as she rode his dick hard. ATM came second nature to her and she sat on his face in return, each deriving pleasure from the acts mentioned. This led to more anal and the facial she swallowed on the couch. They shared some chemistry and it was a solid way to begin the movie thanks to her wonderful skills.
Scene Two: Kylee King, a curvy cutie with a fleshy ass, was up next as she washed her car on the sunny day while wearing her blue bikini. Mark Wood and Mr. Pete were also in need of a cleaning, a pipe cleaning that is, so she gave up the garden hose for their hoses, sucking them both off in turns. They started to screw vaginally but went into the house before the cops arrived, watching her get more into the action on the couch then she did outside. She was an active cock rider too and that helped elevate the heat of the scene with her taking them on in many positions while sucking the other off. She did not do anal here (at least that you could tell), but she was a playful gal that had a lot of fun; whether she was fucking, sucking, or jerking one of them off. The scene ended with a facial from Pete and a pop shot to her ass cheeks by Mark, proving that you don't need to do anal to have a good time when there's chemistry between the players.
Scene Three: Lindsay Kay, the cheeky brunette featured on the front DVD cover, was up next as she displayed her fresh body during some indoor tease footage. She might not have been skilled at teasing the camera but partner Michael Stefano knew what he wanted and was soon snacking on her ass crack, giving her a few smacks to her fleshy ass. They did some vaginal and oral but the emphasis was clearly on anal as she took her first on-camera cock in her butt. The scene showed her to be too passive for my tastes (she let him do almost all of the work) but her potential for heated play will only increase as she works out routinely in similar scenes. She even appeared to like ATM for those of you into it but her willingness to explore her limits will probably be enough for those of you finding her to be a cutie. The scene eventually ended when he rubbed out a load to her tongue, her playing with it before swallowing it whole.
Scene Four: Amber Ashley, another gal with dark hair, a great ass, and all natural titties, was up next as she climbed down the stairs in her black & white bikini bottoms with tease (and presumably cock) on her mind. Her partner was studly Manuel Ferrara and there wasn't a moment I thought she wasn't totally into him as he spanked her, ate her, and felt her up to ready her for the sex. They both did oral like champions, each showing an aptitude for the kind of oral most of us only see in porn, leading to her taking him vaginally in several positions. They showed a fair amount of energy along with the chemistry mentioned earlier and it was easy to see that his cock was larger than she was used to by a wide margin. Still, it ended with a huge facial that she jerked out to her own face, making it a solid scene all the way around by conventional standards.
Scene Five: Luscious Lopez, Trinity Post, Mark Wood, and Michael Stefano, were up next in a scene that had Trinity teasing the camera while Luscious was going at it with the guys. It was an interesting dynamic since Trinity didn't rush over to join them until she had worked herself over nicely with a few toys on the couch. When she did join them, Luscious was sucking and getting anally fucked hard by the alternating team, allowing Trinity a position or two before both ladies took turns getting DP'ed by the guys. Luscious was the loudest of the ladies too but each gal had her own strengths and weaknesses, doing all the usual tricks with plenty of taste testing to top them off. The gals eventually took the pop shots to their mouths but it was the way all four of them played together that impressed me the most. My only complaint was that the men mumbling routine got old in the lengthy scene, something a number of meat puppets seem to think works for someone out there beside themselves (it doesn't, so stop). The anal emphasis continued throughout the scene but even the ATOGM seemed natural here so fans of the ladies will enjoy this one a lot (though the dirty talk was at times good, you might consider the mute button given the male squawking). Whew!
Summary: Big Bottoms Up was a decent offering by director Juan Cuba for Platinum X Pictures. The ladies, the technical qualities, the amount of fuck for the buck and stroke value made Big Bottoms Up worthy of a Recommended. There were a few scenes in need of polishing up and all of the sex wasn't consistently heated as the best scenes but in terms of overall quality, Juan may just be the key to PXP's growth in coming months.
