Cast: Hannah Harper, Manuel Ferrara, Nikki Benz, Mick Blue, Holly Morgan, Ben English, Paulina James, Audrey Bitoni, Jenna Haze
Length: 162:05 minutes
Dates of Production: 12/7/2006 to 1/7/2007
Extra's: The best extra for me was the 14:07 minute Behind the Scenes feature that had Mick and one of the weirder looking crew working the camera with some sex, some interviews (like hotty Holly up first and Nikki ending it). It was fun and the cast obviously liked the guy, something not too tough to imagine given how easy he can be to talk to. There was also a photogallery, a cumshot recap, a true double sided DVD cover and matching slipcase cover, and a set of trailers to movies like Double Decker Sandwich, Who's Your Daddy?, Big Rack Attack, Drive Thru, Virgin Surgeon, Gaper Maker, and Fine Ass Babes. Note: There was no strip tease action as advertised on the back cover.
Audio/Video Quality: The Doll House was presented in a crisp 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color offering as shot by director Mick Blue for Zero Tolerance. The lighting was generally not very solid; occasionally limiting the grain and video noise while providing accurate fleshtones of the cast, but handled without relying on the generic flood lighting some companies seem to prefer. The picture wasn't ever perfect but the composition of the shots was as solid as I remember Mick providing in the past, always enhancing the look of the ladies in their scenes. There were no compression artifacts observed and the overall visual quality was good, as expected, but the bitrate averaged around the lower 2 Mbps range so don't expect too much if you have a large TV. The audio registered on my receiver as 2.0 Dolby Digital in 192 Kbps bitrate but the vocals varied a slight amount in terms of loudness and the music ended after the scenes truly began. I didn't notice anything that would give your home theatres a work out but the audio properties did not detract from the experience. There was also a Spanish track for those who care but I've never been a fan of the lip synchronization issues; perhaps they should call up someone in the anime field to get the relatively cheap software used to make such tracks look better.

Body of Review: Mick Blue is one of the usual directors for Zero Tolerance that lacks the technical prowess of a few of his peers but often compensates for it by providing heated performances out of women that are sometimes lacking under stricter supervision. His latest release for the company is The Doll House; a series of gonzo styled vignettes where the ladies passively take anything that comes their way; only most of it consisted of oral and vaginal sex with no frills. The cover said it like this: "Let's play house! They're cute, cuddly, and you just can't wait to squeeze 'em! Welcome to The Doll House, where the most beautiful suck sluts on screen seductively sip semen, swallow sperm, and make love to your huge, hard cock! These devilish dolls are all your to play with - stroke 'em, spank 'em, and let them please your pleasure rod! Above all, make sure they learn their ABC's --Asses are for licking, Balls are for sucking, and Cocks are for cramming! Next lesson: How to make your tight little asshole gape! Join us for a journey between the thighs of the hottest fantasy fuck sluts ever lensed! Enjoy!" If that sounds good to you, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Hannah Harper, the beautiful blonde on the front DVD cover's left hand side, was up first as she played the piano in her sexy pink dress about as well as I do (in or out of a dress by the way). The tease footage here was extremely appealing as the gal has only gotten better with time and her masturbation act sure didn't hurt my libido any when I heard her juices flowing. She crawled over to super stud Manuel Ferrara and he made her feel right at home; Hannah rewarding his caring touches with a blowjob using some solid hand action. He tasted her as well but spent more time diddling her before they screwed with passion, Manuel finding her cookie to be as sweet as it looked from the appearance on his face. This was not her most active ride but the multiple positions and willingness to embrace the facial largely made up for it, the opener seeming decent if not the best the movie had to offer.
Scene Two: Nikki Benz, a curvy former contract gal with a lot of sexually aggressive attitude and overdone implants, was up next in her red satin outfit and complementary short black skirt as she followed the formula to tease the camera nicely as she pranced around the house. I've always liked her sex skills more than her looks per se but Mick Blue seemed to fall head over heels for her as she entered his life in this next scene. The red tint of the scene bothered me a bit but she did find him to be the cure for loneliness and her double fist handjob combined nicely with her hummer, reminding me of how she could get on my good side. Seriously though, she savored the taste of his rod in the POV footage, the titty fuck and solo action getting them to a place where the lighting was poor but the tint was gone (trading one problem for another) on the couch. The down side was that she was a largely passive rider of cock here, making him do all the work, and it was vanilla all around so aside from the initial part of the scene, it fell flat for me. The titty fuck and jerking off by Mick ended the action with a titty pop but this wasn't her best work to date.
Scene Three: Holly Morgan, a curvy little sex pot in red fishnet lingerie and black mesh stockings, was up next as she teased in the kitchen. Her kittenish persona here worked well with Ben English, since his aggressive style complimented her so well. He was stoked to tap her "little tiny pussy" and the rapid fire manner in which he pounded into her was head and shoulders above some of the work done by the last two men (both of whom I consider to be top talent). The chemistry between Holly and Ben led them to the bedroom where they continued, Holly savoring her own juices off his rod as he spread her apart. They screwed some more and he busted a nut on her face; the population pudding thoroughly coating her as a result.
Scene Four: Paulina James, a sexy looking brunette newcomer, was up next and while her scenes have not been consistently good for me, they tend to show enough potential to make me go out of my way for the day she makes her breakthrough performance. Fans of skinny gals with pretty faces will find her to be truly worthy of "doll" status, and her masturbation sequence during the tease was really hot. It was hot enough that the director, Mick Blue, took advantage of his status and had the scene with her, the couple displaying some extra energy as they explored each other from head to toe. She gave a fine hummer, using hand and mouth in coordination to get him rock hard. She wasn't active at first but she did manage to act as though she was having a good time while they boned in numerous positions. She even took the facial well but by this time, I figured that the ladies were purposely holding back as if directed to let the men dominate on all levels.
Scene Five: Audrey Bitoni, another hot newcomer with a lean figure and pretty face, was up next in some neon pink & blue lingerie. I wasn't keen on her implants but her DSLs looked kind of inviting and while the solo action wasn't as good as the last scene, it was still worth watching a few times when you need inspirational material. Manuel Ferrara was her partner and if ever a male porn star loved the ladies, he would be the one so she relished her role with him as she gyrated her hips and gave him ample opportunity to get her wet with his oral skills. Her hummer wasn't an award winning performance but she covered the basics well enough to prepare him for a bit of hammering at her cookie, the gal thankfully contributing to the action with an aggressive bit of riding where her ass cheeks rippled delightfully. The scene ended when he came on her face, proving to be one of the few that was better during the vaginal action than the oral.
Scene Six: Jenna Haze, the cute gal featured on the right hand side of the front cover in purple bathing suit styled lingerie, found herself following the formula in a blue colored version of the suit (maybe the cover was doctored?) as she verbally coaxed Mick Blue from behind the camera. Her tease was much more focused on her partner than most of her peers in the flick, the lighting style under developed for the level of shadows present. Her oral was superior as expected and while she acted like his cock was too big, she was also somewhat more passive than usual; making it a bit less thrilling than it could have been. Still, she was loud and fans of dirty talk will appreciate just how loud as she took all he gave her nicely enough. She was one of the best at PTM here too though her oral was not enough to completely cover her lack of riding skills for me; the scene ending with a facial.
Summary: The Doll House by director Mick Blue for Zero Tolerance had some potential but the passive ladies lowered my rating to a Rent It so unless you like women that let you do all the work, your mileage may vary considerably this time. Still, the movie had some very appealing ladies and a few of them offered up superior oral talents so The Doll House might be just what you're looking for but I expect more from a company with the credentials of Zero Tolerance; making this one only a bit worth your time and seed.
