Length: 141 minutes
Date of Production: 11/27/2006 to 12/4/2006
Extra's: The best extra was 11.5 minute bonus handjob scene where Mia Smiles gave Chris Cannon's cannon a good polishing up. She was wearing her mobster hat and had her usual playful demeanor, elevating the value of the scene for me as she worked him over handily (pun intended). The 21:44 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by an uncredited guy (possibly Nate Liquor) was also a lot of fun with Mike taking snapshots and Coutney directing the fun times. There were interviews, some nudity and sex, and a lot of material focusing on the photoshoots by skilled pornographer Mike Quasar. One of the good things about the feature was that it proved Courtney took an active role in the production (unlike others at the company and in the business who take the credit for the work of people like Mike). Mike was as funny as ever, adding some entertainment value to the extra that some people other than myself seem to have noticed over the years. There was also a photogallery, pop shot recap, trailers to shows like Face Invaders, Blow Me Sandwich 9, Ass Cleavage 8, Who's Your Daddy 9, Girlvana 2, Cum Hungry Leave Full 2, and Grand Theft Anal 9; with a true double sided DVD cover and cardboard slipcase as well.
Audio/Video Quality: Whack Jobs was presented in a 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color presentation as shot by talented cameraman Mike Quasar under direction of hotty director Courtney Cummz for Zero Tolerance. The lighting was very good, limiting the grain and video noise while providing accurate fleshtones on the cast. The picture wasn't always perfect but the composition of the shots was as solid as I remember Mike providing in the past, always enhancing the look of the ladies in their scenes substantially and Courtney's camerawork showing a lot of promise too. The fleshtones were accurate and in technical terms, some significant care was applied to the production. There were no compression artifacts observed and the overall visual quality was good, as expected, but the bitrate hovered around the under 2 Mbps mark so I got the impression it could have been better. The audio registered on my receiver as 2.0 Dolby Digital with a 192 Kbps bitrate but the vocals varied a fair amount in terms of loudness and there wasn't any music getting in the way of most scenes this time. I didn't notice anything that would give your home theatres a work out but the audio properties did not detract from the experience. Fans of Spanish can listen to the secondary audio track in that language too; I found it to be an okay dub though only spot checked it to make sure it existed.

Body of Review: Courtney Cummz has been the contract gal for Zero Tolerance recently and they proved to make an excellent choice in how sexually potent she can be in her scenes. Now that she's directing too, her first effort the well received Pussy Cats, she has continued to progress in her career; showing some talent for getting good scenes from some performers that are often difficult elsewhere. Her latest title is called Whack Jobs; a series of thirteen handjobs by gals of varying appeal and skills, simulating the action that many at home will be doing as they watch the flick. There was some oral here too but the scenes largely stuck to a preprogrammed formula, each gal adding the slightest of variations to differentiate themselves in the POV fashion the main action was shot in. The cover said it like this: "Always a happy ending! Because we love guys who love ZT DVD's, we're giving you a helping hand in getting off! That's right, these hot little handjob hunnies get your pleasure rod stiff and ready, and hit the slopes for some prime-time POV pole skiing! From slow and steady sensual strokers with satin-soft hands, to fast and furious fuckers who beat your meat like it's a flank steak, these tug queens have hand-eye coordination that would make athletes jealous! Sit back, relax, and let these handy cock massagers do the wank work. Once their tiny slippery fingers caress your huge pleasure rod, It's hands-on hardcore happiness at its best! Enjoy!" If you're still interested, here's a quick look at the scenes, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Marie Luv, a lean black gal whose breasts seemed bigger than they were the last time I saw her, gave up some tease to director Courtney on the couch and masturbated as she was encouraged until it was time to go to the other couch and jerk off an uncredited Trent Soluri. She used baby oil and took it slow as the POV camera kept him from being seen above the waist. She used dirty talk and some oral as she stroked him off, coyly shining him up until he launched his load of population pudding silently. The other scenes were remarkably similar to this one, with minor titty fucking and no penetrative sex; making me wonder if the gals were instructed to follow a set formula rather than show individuality but in fairness, I liked the way it was handled.
Scene Two: Brooke Haven, a curvy white gal with her dark hair dominating this time, her body showing herself off as she stripped, masturbated, and then followed the same formula with Chris Cannon. Her main dynamic had her using her breasts more and mouth less but she kept going at him until he popped, proving to provide a solid stroker for fans.
Scene Three: Katja Kassin, the German anal queen with the all natural body, was up next as she shook her money maker while stripping to show her playful side. In al, I liked that she didn't need to rely on doing anal to make for a solid scene, the solo act nearly as exciting as the handjob she provided. I got the impression she was working with Chris Charming as he sighed a lot but it was never shown and I was more interested in Katja's oral tricks as the scene progressed.
Scene Four: Olivia O'Lovely, a curvy Latina with a great booty clap, offered up a lot of booty tease before following the dynamic for the camera. Fans of women with some meat on their bones will find her appealing as I do (Courtney even gave her a "10"). In any case, she proved to be another top notch performer as she masturbated and jerked off her partner, even showing the small cock some loving as she licked and stroked him off while rubbing herself a bit. The titty play added another dimension to the act and the small load was about right for the size.
Scene Five: Jemeni, a lean black gal wearing a striped black top and micro mini skirt, was up next as she followed the routine with a bit more solo work this time on the pool table. She largely kept to using hand to gland action with a ton of oil. It was one of the weaker scenes but still pretty good.
Scene Six: Presley Maddox, a relative newcomer compared to most in the show, was up next with an alt-porn look to her, displaying her pierced titties before the light purple outfit was shown in detail. For some reason, Courtney went off track a bit and had her display her feet for the fetish crowd; making me wonder why she didn't do it for the others as she catered to the fetish crowd. In any case, she got to work with a smaller cock too, using mostly hand action as she stroked him off. There was limited oral and titty action here; proving to be another weaker scene for me.
Scene Seven: Leighlani Red, a redhead with pretty eyes, was up next as she acted like a primadonna a bit; telling Courtney she could only fondle her a little bit and that she "sometimes" liked a cock in her throat. The rest of the scene wasn't bad though as she appeared to enjoy masturbating and rubbing out the guy's load; benefiting only by adding in some ass rubbing of the cock before repeatedly (and mechanically) telling the camera how much she liked cock. It looked like Charming's cock again and I'm sure she'd be really good in a full service scene.
Scene Eight: Gwen Diamond, a blonde with a stripper next door look to her, was up next as she showed off for the camera in her pink with black dot bikini undies. I liked her muscular hardbody since it had just enough fat on it to hold onto, the cock belonging to Chris Charming as she poured oil on it to stroke. While she did not appear to be as polished an act at giving handjobs, the dynamic at least provided a change of pace and I liked it.
Scene Nine: Alexa Lynn, a skinny blonde with pretty eyes and a high pitched voice, was up next as she played with her black bikini clad body. She's one of the newer gals in the industry (or was when this was shot) and her patch of pubic hair was a change of pace too. In terms of her performance, she proved to be a go getter in how she jerked him off, not having much in the way of titties to rub him with (Charming again IIRC). It was mechanical in terms of her vocals and her straightforward method didn't let him last long enough to enjoy it but I'd let her do me in a pinch.
Scene Ten: Satine Phoenix, a gal with interesting teeth and multicolored hair, was up next wearing a skull print set of lingerie; purring as Courtney played with her by the couch. She gave the initial impression of being a nasty gal, playing up the angle as she masturbated but losing it during the whack job portion of the scene. She was friendly enough and her only down side was being stuck with Trent Soluri. While she covered the basics fairly well though, the overall impression I got was she'd be much, much better in a full service scene.
Scene Eleven: Jenna Haze, one of the little darlings of porn these days, was up next asking that she be allowed to let the population pudding cover her hands so she could lick them clean, a fate that Courtney seemed to agree with. Her maroon satin bra and black panties looked good on her and partner Chris Cannon seemed to hold out as long as he could. Jenna was proud of her hands and technique, initially making me roll my eyes until I saw she wasn't just blowing smoke. The tease was decent and I thought she was very good at her chosen profession; using her vocals to punctuate the moment before he blasted his load for her to lick.
Scene Twelve: Courtney Cummz, the director showcased on the front cover, was up last and I have to admit that saving the best for last is a common practice in porn. The lighting was a bit below par here and the resulting saturation of the picture was a pain but she really showed most of the others up with her kittenish act and superior skills. While some of the others appeared to hold back, she embraced her fate as she used all the tricks at her disposal to jerk and blow him to completion. Heck, she can jerk me off any time given her skills displayed here. Whew!
Summary: Whack Jobs by director Courtney Cummz for Zero Tolerance was more polished and professional than competing projects like Tug Jobs 10 by Bang Bros so if you like handjobs given by performers in the industry, you'll likely find this one worth a rating of Recommended as I did. The cast wasn't all in top form but the highlights were such that I had no problem with the overall quality of the show. The levels of fuck for the buck were not as high as full service scenes but I'd be lying if I said the strokability was anything less than solid given the intended purpose of the movie to begin with. In short, Whack Jobs will have you whacking yourself silly for a long time if you like gals that give handjobs and hummers so check it out.
