Extra's: The best extra for me was the 24 minute Bonus scene starring Gina Lynnand one of her uncredited, curvy counterparts. I can't remember her name off the top of my head but I've seen her before and fans of well endowed (or enhanced) women will find her very appealing indeed. I described the scene better below, noting that it kept with the theme of the movie rather just appear as a tack on extra scene of dubious merit. I also liked the somewhat limited 6 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. I wish it lasted longer and had the other ladies featured more but perhaps future efforts can offer a better value in terms of extras than this one did. There was also a photogallery and trailers to shows like Dirty Chicks Craving Meat Sticks, DD's and Derrieres, Double Dutch, I Love Gina, Top Notch Anal Bitches, and Fantastic Whores.
Audio/Video Quality: Gina Lynn's Drowning in Bitch Juice was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as it was originally shot by director Travis Knight for distribution by Exquisite Multimedia but the company recently changed distributors so this is the first title distributed by Jules Jordan Video. The lighting was mixed since the close ups didn't have any fill lighting most of the time, elevating the grain a bit more than I care to see, but the fleshtones were almost always accurate (if sometimes slightly saturated) and the amount of video noise minimal. The composition of the shots was such that the ladies were made to look good; enhancing them more than a little bit as Travis continues to improve his craft. There were no compression artifacts or watermarks that I could see, marking this as a step forward for his style to showcase the ladies. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English audio tracks were okay and I could plainly hear the vocals of the cast at all times but the music still seemed a bit lame to me; perhaps calling in an outside expert would help. I dare say that the audio held it back more than the visuals this time, but it was a nice package considering the amount of fuck for the buck.

Body of Review: Gina Lynn is currently one of the few ladies in porn that can make or break a movie with her appearance thanks to her mainstream work, large fan base derived from dance appearances (she is a great dancer folks), and longevity in the industry. Her husband, Travis Knight, directs her most of the time these days for Gina Lynn Productions and they now have a distribution deal with Jules Jordan Video. They have long been friendly with Jules and it probably makes sense for the switch in partners though I'm told that little will change as a result for the consumer. The couple's latest release is Gina Lynn's Drowning in Bitch Juice, the first title distributed by Jules and an all lesbian flick that many of her fans will appreciate thanks to the quality of the ladies in the cast. Here's a quick look at the scenes, noting that some of them were a bit roughly shot while others had some decidedly rough action, Gina stretching her limits as a submissive more than a little bit.
Scene One: Gina Lynn, the curvy blonde superstar performer seen on the upper left hand corner of the cover, was up first with Brooke Haven, another cutie as seen in the middle of the front cover beneath the "U" in Juice of the title. Brooke was apologizing for blowing Travis the night before and the pair made up on the couch in their form fitting stripper outfits while something horrible sounding was going on in the other room (it sounded like someone was watching the monster parts of Rodan). The ladies were lean and fitter than usual (not to say they aren't always fit of course) and did each other on the blue couch with Brooke giving Gina some head before lightly smacking her crotch with a cute little toy. Gina wanted it harder and Brooke obliged her before Gina sat on her face. This ultimately led to a weird toy being brought out (it looked a little like a bong) and Brooke donning a strap on dildo, aggressively tearing into the pussy of her friend with a lot of dirty talk. Gina generally topped from the bottom, remaining the receiver of the toy and oral, with the warm scene ending on a high note. It was a pleasing way to start the movie.
Scene Two: Nikki Benz, the blonde with fishnets featured on the lower middle of the front cover, and attractive Alektra Blue, featured on the upper right hand side of the cover, were up next as they slowly eased into a scene with one another that involved a moderate amount of titty play before the oral and fingering came into effect. There was more of the advertised face sitting and Gina was initially subordinate but each gal did a decent job of slobbing up the other one's coochy. The clear dildo used and four fingers seemed to work well for Alektra but she also wanted anal tricks performed on her so the wealth of toys used after that focused almost exclusively on filling her ass and diddling her. The dirty talk was moderate and Nikki, while somewhat under utilized in the latter portion of the scene, was a good sport about helping her friend get off.
Scene Three: Gina Lynn, Akira, (the Asian wearing the hat on the lower left hand corner), and newcomer Jess Wakefield (the gal with the black tube top squatting near Akira), were up next as the two ladies were doing a lot of sweaty work on Gina's estate as the yard crew. They asked for a hose to cool off and Gina was nice enough to do it for them in the backyard; the net effect being a wet t-shirt contest of sorts that led to the inevitable lesbian tryst. It was all done in teasing fashion with Gina getting watered too, sending them onto the patio furniture to warm back up in the best way possible. They fingered and sucked each other off; taking turns to make sure no one was left behind. They moved to the foot bridge for some 69 work and continued to playfully get off. It was one of the tamer scenes of the movie but it wasn't bad; just different from what I expected.
Scene Four: Nadia and Riley Shy, the pair on the lower right hand corner of the cover, were up next as they wore their dark, form-enhancing lingerie on the couch. They weren't as notable as Gina and a few of the others but the interview brought to light that this was a first for blonde Riley, who had never done a lesbian scene. She was a little shy about it and excited at the same time, but her all natural breasts were a highlight of the show and while the music droned on mindlessly, the ladies looked to be enjoying the scene. It looked like someone else shot it since it was kind of like an internet quality clip (maybe possessing a film like look) and Travis has made tremendous improvement over the last year or so but it still managed to capture the nuances of the performances fairly well. About half the scene relied on toy use and that was the weakest part of the action since it seemed too mechanically handled by the ladies (like they were forcing the chemistry to happen, with decidedly mixed results). It wasn't a filler scene but it wasn't great either.
Scene Five: Gina Lynn, sporting dark hair in a bondage scene using a sex swing, was up next as she was dominated by Jess Wakefield; the hard body from the earlier scene with the ripped abs. Jess brandished a riding crop with a fair amount of experience, the ball gag preventing Gina from speaking out (but not preventing her from struggling and crying out all that effectively). The domination theme continued with Jess going down on Gina, using a few toys on her, and making her do ATOGM with an anal plug Jess used on herself. The tables were then turned with Jess in the swing, Gina using toys on her in a turnabout-is-fair-play scenario, giving the newcomer a technical DP to make up for her previous treatment. The toys Gina used on Jess were much larger and she had a vindictive streak played to here, the end result of the various action was to add a lot of spice to an otherwise decent but uneventful movie.
Scene Six: Gina Lynn, in a see through top and blue satin shorts, teased the camera to some generic music in the living room with a lot of camera pans and mediocre angles, thankfully knowing what worked as she highlighted her assets in such a way that even the heavy handed camera work didn't get in the way of the heat. She was joined by another busty gal that had been spying on her, a gal that looked exceptionally familiar but also different at the same time. They kissed and followed through with a lot of coy oral and stroking with some toy use tossed in almost as an after thought. The two shared something between themselves; be it chemistry, energy, or whatever else, making it a scene that I liked better then a few of them on the main movie. If you like lesbian rimming and titty play, you'll enjoy this one more then a little bit.
Summary: Gina Lynn's Drowning in Bitch Juice by director Travis Knight for Gina Lynn Productions was far from his best work with his wife but still managed to warrant a rating of Recommended thanks to the ladies in the cast interacting so well with Gina, the amount of fuck for the buck, and the interesting bonus scene that added some solid value to the show. The technical values were a bit rough at times but I think Gina's fans will enjoy the stroke and replay value of Gina Lynn's Drowning in Bitch Juice more than a little so they can adjust my rating upwards a bit depending on how much they like the lady.
