Audio/Video Quality: Jack's Teen America: Mission 17 was presented in 1.85: anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Robby D. for distribution by Digital Playground. The lighting was solid here, as expected, and that meant that the limited amounts of grain and other visual elements used to lend a sense of texture were minimal. As is usually the case in the series (and related series), the visual elements of the movie were consciously designed to look as they did with a slightly rough look to support the thematic concept of the show where geeky Jack is trying to score women by use of his possible connections in the mythical beauty contestant pageant. The composition of the shots and the editing enhanced the look of the ladies more than a little bit too, proving what fans say about the production team led by Robby and Nick with the DVD mastering revealing no compression artifacts. It should be noted that one of the scenes seemed out of place thematically; providing no less of a ride but still outside of the realm of the usual offerings from the series. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it.
Body of Review: Robby D. has probably done more for pushing Digital Playground into a gonzo producing powerhouse then anyone else in the business. The company used to be known solely for their features (which I liked a lot by the way), virtual sex line, and artistic porn but he dragged them into the marketplace with numerous lines relating to his devilish eye and playful appetites; primarily material relating to his Jack series. One of the most popular of the bunch has been the Teen America series that shows an unemployed Jack as the leading interviewer/cameraman for a fictitious beauty contest, where he employs his usual approach of getting gals to have sex as a means of enhancing their chances at winning. The latest in the series is Jack's Teen America: Mission 17, the sequel to Jack's Teen America 16, starring a similar cast and using the lovely Jana Cova as his audio engineer in a scene. Like the last volume in the series, the levels of fuck for the buck were reduced for some reason but fans might overlook that fact given the range of ladies on display here but I'll admit that I was happier when the series lasted the better part of three hours per volume. If you're still interested, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used and that this is the first release of a title with new contract performer Lacie Heart in it, even if she made the scene long ago:
Scene One: Scott's A Biatch: Lacie Heart, looking fine long before she got involved in any contracts, was up in a fishnet top as Jack walked in to find Scott Nails trying on schoolgirl clothing. Amused beyond words at Scott's behavior, Jack goofed on his pal as a dominant Lacie went back to sucking his cock with a lot of flair. She kept calling him her little bitch but he didn't mind as long as she kept sucking his cock, a fair tradeoff in some circles, especially given how solid a blowjob she was giving him. The knob slobbing gave way to her screaming during their vaginal romp, a bit overacted in my opinion on her part but still within the accepted boundaries of porn. They did a few positions but he was far more active than she was in the scene and it ended early when he rubbed out a load of population pudding to her face. For this series, it was a very short scene and I wished it lasted longer.
Scene Two: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun: Jana Cova, playing the hottest audio engineer Jack has ever employed, was up next in torn jeans and a skimpy top with contestant Holly Morgan, who wore an orange bikini. Jana was the perfect choice as she cut right to business to get Holly undressed and Jack liked it a lot (maybe we'll see more of Jana this way in the future). They went inside to the couch and Holly showed her lap dancing skills with Jana as Robby showed why he chose directing over a career in music (he'd never have made it as a human beat box folks). Both gals enjoyed the lap dance action, especially Jana who was pawing Holly quite a bit before the dance resulted in some heated lesbian work. Okay, most people know that I'm a big fan of the lovely Jana Cova and accept her role as the lesbian in the various Jack movies so this role worked for me a lot better then the mope squad members in the same position. Jana savored Holly's scent off her panties, sucked and played with her titties, and showed what keen skills she had to deploy in such a scene. In return, Holly was no slacker either, letting Jana guide her through the lesbian acts that included a lot of fingering, cunnilingus, and playful tease. Fans of foot fetish will find some foot play too albeit not that much. It was a very warm scene for me overall, even if I wanted it to last a lot longer with Jana in the spotlight.
Scene Three: Not A Teenager, But Look At Those Tits: Michelle B., a fetching blonde with ponytails though about as much a teenager as Jana, teased Jerry the party animal as he held the microphone close to her as she showed she wore no panties and had a tremendous amount of cleavage to enjoy in the living room. The guys both felt her up and she showed that she could lick her own nipples, demonstrating that she liked to lick balls with the help of Jerry. Her blowjob was initially slow and skillfully applied, building up a tempo as she got more into the action. I really liked the titty fucking before he licked her twice and jammed in his cock for some vaginal work. She bounced on him a little bit but he did most of the work as she warmed up with the anal coming next. I've seen her tear it up with a guy in the past so her passive nature here seemed out of place and lowered the value of the scene for me because of it. The scene soon ended with a titty fuck and facial pop but as much as I like her, this was one of her weakest scenes I've observed in a long time.
Scene Four: Good Doggy: Riley Mason, the brunette on the front cover, was up next as she played a fetish submissive in PVC clothing that was 20 years old. Her partner was Scott Nails and he relished the idea of playing with this alt-hotty that I have to admit looked better here than in most of her recent scenes (the time delay factor sometimes works in favor of gals when a company sits on a scene for awhile). Her lack of panties set Jack afire as he admired her biscuit, Scott roughly treating it as he led her around on a chain. The crawling motif seemed to suit her and they each took turns eating each other out before she told Jack she wanted him inside of her. The expansive living room couch was the perfect place to see her climb aboard his rod and go to town. He did most of the work initially but she soon joined in to have some fun as well, elevating the heat of the scene as they displayed some chemistry together. It ended when he jerked off a load to her mouth but it seemed kind of truncated for some reason.
Scene Five: What The Fuck???: Holly Wellin, another blonde Brit with a fine body, was up last as she rambled on as though in need of a valium (or at least decaf) while Jerry stood nearby in the living room. She emphasized her accent as she masturbated, seeing him rub himself until the scene cut away to her wearing a blindfold and shutting up. Jack whispered to Jerry as the two men played with her a little, unbuttoning her blouse for better access to her all natural breasts. The completely different vocal dynamic was startling to say the least but I like it when partners take their time and enjoy each other as was the case here. She sucked him off with a lot of skill and passion, slobbing his knob with lots of messy trails. He opened her up with his hands and then banged her soundly, giving her a vaginal gape before working her ass open with a glass toy. They then did a slow technical DP which evolved into him ripping into her ass as she vocally demanded more, moving along with some ATM and a huge gape before the load went to her face (and a nod to There's Something About Mary). It was a decent ending to a pretty warm movie, though it always appeared to be too short to fully appreciate.
Summary: Jack's Teen America: Mission 17 by director Robby D. for Digital Playground wisely employed a star studded cast of attractive women, even if some of them weren't at their very best. Still, the selection of Jana Cova as the featured hotty and the Lacie Heart comedic bit with Scott in drag was cute enough to merit some extra points, making this one worthy of being Recommended. I still hope that more tease is used in the future and that the extras get pumped up or at least the scenes total over two hours like they used to but the quality of fuck for the buck was enough to boost this movie into an acceptable place for such consideration. In short, Jack's Teen America: Mission 17 had all the usual humor, heated sexual pairings, and technical values that fans have demanded of the series, making it a fun trip to enjoy so check it out when it is released next month, especially fans of Jana Cova and Lacie Heart.
