Date of Production: 10/28/2006
Extra's: The best extra was easily the bonus blowjob by Brianna Beach given to a thankful Juan Cuba after he gave in to his foot fetish perviness. It was in the motel room and she was especially good at slobbing his knob for the 13.5 minutes. There was also a five minute long Behind the Scenes feature where the gals wore bikinis most of the time and had some extra nudity but was too short for any significant value to my way of thinking. There was also a cumshot recap, a photogallery, and a dual sided DVD cover with other covers on the second side.
Audio/Video Quality: On The Road: South Beach 2 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 very minor 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 (just like most of his associates in the industry).

Body of Review: Juan Cuba is currently a director for Platinum X Pictures and their affiliates, offering up a wide array of gonzo titles that some of you will really enjoy. I know that he can be hit or miss though so I take as much care as possible to examine his works closely in order to determine if a particular title is one of his better ones. This time, he presented On The Road: South Beach 2; a traveling gonzo where he and his duo of dick (Mark Wood and Michael Stefano) try to score women from the area with the help of the lovely Brianna Beach. The results were mixed thanks to the way several of the gals seemed to be less into the action and less skilled but fans of newcomers may like them for that even more. If you're still interested, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Jade Leshay and Summer Long, a couple of gals in bikinis hanging out by the pool on the windy day, caught some sun by the pool at the hotel while Juan introduced them to stud puppet Mark Wood. Mark honed in on the ladies pretty quickly, getting closer to them as Jade showed some affection towards him, giving in to do a scene with her friend and the guy as a result back in the room. The making out was okay but the rest of the scene showed some limitations even if the public nudity and tease was kind of cool. The sexual dynamic showed them doing oral and vaginal sex in various positions, the gals giving each other some quality time before they eventually caused him to launch a load on the abdomen for them to share. The gals were largely actively riding his cock in the bed but both seemed almost preoccupied and mechanically going through the motions to me; even if a glimmer of hope arose from time to time. I was hoping it would get better as the movie progressed.
Scene Two: Julisa Delor, a fit brunette walking along the roadway, was up next as Michael Stefano tried to put his scam moves on her as she showed some minimal interest in her generic outfit used for her fitness campaign. I found her chest tattoos interesting (two hearts much like Julia Bond has paw prints) and she seemed to be shy as she followed their annoying suggestions. I liked that she paid a little attention to tease but this was another time when the gal was lacking in experience, her 18 years not giving her the kind of exposure needed to really shine here. Her hummer was weak; focusing on the tip with some handjob action, a surprise given his modest member. That led to an okay vaginal screwing where she came across as a gal from a strip club making a few extra bucks on the side more than anything else. If you like them young, relatively untouched (no roast beef pussy here), and inexperienced at sex, she'll work better for you than she did for me. The scene ended with him popping a load of population pudding on her face after she made the proviso that he not come in her eye.
Scene Three: Charity, a frisky little vixen that was already getting boned by Mark Wood and Michael Stefano when the camera caught them in the bedroom, was not a particularly cute gal but she had some of the energy that had been missing from the last two scenes. She did a decent job at blowing them with PTM and her ass was shapely for her size. She looked younger than the claimed 19, the scene going into circus act mood when the guys decided to give her a DPP (two cocks in the pussy at the same time) but she was too tight to fit them so she let Mark keep tapping her and Michael got a hummer instead. They continued this way, alternating who did what to whom, for the rest of the lengthy scene until the guys rubbed out loads to her face. I could see her doing fine in porn if she wanted to, especially after she started jamming her hand inside of her pussy, leaving the thumb out for legal reasons.
Scene Four: Brianna Beach, the gorgeous hotty on the front DVD cover with pretty eyes, was up next and my initial reason for picking up the movie. She was the female lead of the show in the sense that she was the one going around finding women for Juan to shoot, using her agent status but showing a willingness to jump back in front of the camera. The way she blew Mark Wood by the stairs was alone enough to warrant a few loads but the rest of the scene with him and Michael Stefano also proved to be full of passion for cock that you won't find from the other gals, riding cock like she was getting off and performing with the men as though they had some history, and chemistry, together. Her ass was as great as ever and her love of slightly rough sex enough to give the scene some serious stroke value, largely saving the rating from the scrap heap as a result. It ended when she willingly took their facials and Juan checked her out one last time. Whew!
Scene Five: Ashlynn Brooke and Tiffany, a couple of gals that had their own dynamics going on in terms of physical appeal, were in bikinis as they walked along the beach, going back to the room after some flashing on the practically deserted (and very windy) beach. This led to a scene with Mark Wood and Michael Stefano, with Ashlynn's curves more appealing to me this time. Both gals did a fair job of the blowjobs and screwing, the men providing enough meat pipe to satisfy them on the beds as Juan blathered on in his best impersonation of a cock blocker to home viewers. There were times when the action went from really heated to kind of mechanical but it was a pretty fair scene overall as they went at one another (with a cute nod to Brandon Iron by Juan near the end of the scene). It finished up with facials and some kissing by the gals, propping up the DVD enough with the last scene to keep the rating up enough to make it worth watching.
Summary: On The Road: South Beach 2 by director Juan Cuba for Platinum X Pictures was good for two scenes only in my book, warranting a rating of Rent It. The technical aspects were pretty good and most of the ladies had the youthful appeal fans like to see but the lack of energy and chemistry in most of the scenes really put a damper on things. In short, On The Road: South Beach 2 will be worth checking out even if the minimal beach and public flashing aspects appeal to you since there is so much more on the market that more readily caters to that type of thing.
