Extra's: My favorite extra was the full length audio commentary by Jim Holliday and the legendary Selena Steele. Jim led in comments but Selena had a substantial presence here, with a lengthy career to draw upon as one of the gals in porn that stood the test of time. The 10 minute Behind the Scenes feature by Wit Maverick (shot for this one and Eternal Virgins at the same time with footage from both) was quite funny thanks in large part to the editing and the antics of Rob Spallone. The cast and crew had a lot of fun and it was evident from looking at Jim that his medical problems were catching up with him but I have to hand it to Wit and the folks at VCA for allowing some of the comments to make it into the feature. There were also some (4) minimal Star Bios, trailers for movies like Floss, Sorority Sex Kittens 3, Little Town Flirts, Eye Candy Refocused, Perfect Smiles, LA Fashion Girls, a photogallery, a bit on the multiple angles used, and a jump to the scene bit too.

Audio/Video Quality: Cheerleader Pink was presented in the originally filmed 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Jim Holliday for VCA Pictures back in February 2003 (filmed at the same time as Eternal Virgins with the assistance of "ramrod" Rob Spallone taking over from Evan Stone; the break between Jim and Evan hinted at in the commentaries of some of his contemporary releases of the time). The picture was crystal clear and had a wonderfully diverse cast as seen on the front DVD cover. The fleshtones were accurate thanks in large part to the flat and plentiful lighting, eliminating grain and other visual defects in a manner I wish contemporary companies would at least consider. This was one of the Holliday flicks where few budget considerations came into play, coming off as great looking if not the best the man had to offer at this stage in his career. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English with the vocals very solidly captured and the music still a cut above the pack as far as I was concerned. The music was trademark Jim Holliday style with Reno & the Rumrunners with the Ghosts of ZZYZX Rainwater Road Band (an insider joke by the way) on back up duties this time. There was the normal range of music here for those who care but the movie seemed to be more of an after thought or filler in between the other movie made at the same time.
Body of Review: Jim Holliday was known for the style he offered during his work for VCA Pictures, even when he made multiple movies at once in order to conserve funds (and put more women in the movies, even in non sex roles to flesh out the already great casts). In February of 2003, he shot Cheerleader Pink concurrently with Eternal Virgins, this time about a pro-athlete cheerleader squad owned by Selena Steele's character. The cover said it like this: "Way back in thei'80's it all began with Sorority Pink. More recently there was Think Pink (on the beach) and Melted Pink (in the high desert). Now...from the originator of the whole "perfect pink" concept comes Jim Holliday's Cheerleader Pink, with the largest cast of all -- two dozen babes. Professional cheerleaders for the North Fresno Bobcats squad need to undergo treatments known only as "tinker time". That's really all you need to know if you understand Holliday's formula for blistering explicit sex, provocative eye candy and minimal, but hip, dialogue..." If you like Holliday's movies, this was a sweet little movie made towards the end of his career. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms were used in all the scenes with men in them:
Scene One: Taylor Rain, a cute brunette in her feature porn debut, was up first as she took on Anthony Hardwood in bed. She gave some fine head but in an uncharacteristic move, the scene was split between the opening and the credits (a rarity in a Jim Holliday flick). He ate her out with a lot of attention to her fine little ass, her begging him to go straight to anal as a result. She was very active at riding in this portion of the scene, showing how great she was in reverse cowgirl after dumping the cheerleader outfit. She was also vocal and showed some chemistry with the guy, both of them proving to be sexual Olympians (note: the commentary referred to a few of us fan reviewers on the internet that routinely praised the fact that the gals had smiles on the faces of the gals). The scene ended when she blew him to completion with ATM, Taylor savoring his cock with some post coital sucking.
Scene Two: Selena Steele, playing the matriarch of the squad and still looking great as a MILF character, wore black fishnets and matching bra as she took on Alex Sanders on the dark maroon couch. He rimmed and otherwise ate her out, playing his silly character throughout the scene, even when she was giving him great head. Way back when this scene was planned, she had run an internet poll for fans to vote on her outfit, resulting in the stripper shoes and other accessories that enhanced her looks. She was very active in both the vaginal and anal, claiming that this was her first anal orgasm in the commentary track. There were a great many homage's to other movies and directors but sexually, it was off the hook (and didn't spend a lot of time with foot fetish action this time). The facial was plentiful and she seemed to be having a great time with him.
Scene Three: Chloe Dior, a gal with incredible eyes and a body to match, was stretched out on the medical bed in the clinic as Alex Sanders licked her feet, moving to her ass. She held her hand over her zit but he didn't care as he was lost in the moment of going down on her crotch, her fingering her ass as he did so. Her blowjob was decent but slow and seductive, leading to him poking her pussy in doggy style. The vaginal ride was quite active and she seemed to appreciate the anal, even if she was too tight to really ride him as well in that area. She kept smiling and talking dirty in between her moaning, elevating the heat of the scene before he popped on her ass cheeks.
Scene Four: Monica Mayhem, Kelli Passion, and Kylie Wilde, were up next in a lesbian tryst as they came straight out of the shower to dry out. This being a porno, they got wet again really quickly, though the source of the moisture this time was from the trio of twats as they worked each other over. This was billed as an introduction for Kylie into porn on the cover but I was pretty sure she had made at least a movie or two by this point in time. In any case, the chemistry they shared was solid and that made it fun to watch as they stuck with oral and hands only; skipping toys as a nice change of pace.
Scene Five: Cameron Cain, a very curvy gal with a stripper's body and model's face, was up next with Steve Hatcher on the card table. They did the usual oral on each other and while his rimming was well handled, her active and aggressive vaginal riding was far better for me. The anal was decidedly slower but I still got the impression that she was having fun, even if she did grimace a time or two when taking him deep inside of her. It ended when she treated his spew like toxic waste but it was an otherwise warm to hot scene.
Scene Six: Taylor Rain, once again trying new things was up next as she gave the massive Lee Stone a footjob. The scene cut away to the next scene, only to be picked up again, with the couple doing some fine work here. When it picked back up, Lee was going down on her pussy and ass, fingering her to an almost completion, but it stopped short of doing anything else! Arrgh!
Scene Seven: Shayla LaVeaux and Sharon Kane, were up next in the locker room with Kane as the couch and Shayla one of the lead cheerleaders. Shayla was rimming Sharon and Jay "Jake Jacobs" Crew walked into the picture, playing some touch football with them before joining them for some heated plays of their own. He seemed to truly appreciate the taste of their pussies and asses, with the ladies doing likewise on each other as well as his cock before they showed him hammering away at them. Shayla proved her awesome riding skills being superior to Sharon's but fans of the older ladies will probably find something to appreciate from both of them. It ended with a dual facial and showed the trio to have some serious chemistry together; providing a nice change of pace from the teenagers populating Jim's movies. The lighting was a bit spotty (despite what Jim said about the monitor being off kilter; though his diplomatic comments about VCA's sale at the time were interesting) yet the action was solid throughout the scene.
Scene Eight: Lexi Lamour, Bunny Luv, Raylin, and Shayla LaVeaux, were up last in a fourway lesbian scene that had actually been shot awhile before the others. Jim wanted to use it in the movie so he had some dialogue to that effect but the important thing was that the slightly different feel to it that Jim described on the commentary was simply another set of hotties going at one another with vigor and enthusiasm. The pleasure they derived way back then will now live forever as the gals seemed to get off on the purple bedspread by pairing off and swapping partners a few times.
Summary: Cheerleader Pink by director Jim Holliday for VCA Pictures was another fun frolic in the world of "Jimmy Land" as Shayla always liked to put it, providing some fine and entertaining extras, good cast pairings, and a lot of fuck for the buck (especially now that VCA has greatly lowered the price to a mere pittance). It had some technical issues of minor proportion and I wished Taylor's second scene wasn't cut short so I lowered the rating to a Recommended but Cheerleader Pink had lots of cheerleader antics to enjoy and the usual cast of cuties Holliday employed were in fine form.
