Extra's: The best extra was easily the 10:43 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that consisted of clips from the movie and some interviews. It was not credited to anyone but sounded like Zak Wylde was one of the cameramen asking questions. It added some fun, gave some background on the gals for the usual internet stalkers, and provided some of the photoshoot material as well but never really provided a lot of meat to work with. There was a photogallery, a pop shot recap, and a slipcover for the DVD case too.
Audio/Video Quality: The Girl Next Door 4 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Eli Thomas for Combat Zone. The fleshtones were accurate, the lighting usually decent, with the visual flaws like grain and video noise generally minimal. I saw no compression artifacts here and the bitrate hovered in the 5 Mbps area most of the time that I paid attention to it. The composition of the camera angles was almost always solid in terms of making the gals look their best but Eli has a way to go before earning the kind of accolades his peers have proven worthy of over time. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio in 192 Kbps was basic in most ways with little separation and limited dynamic range but it didn't get in the way of the heat when it appeared in the action either. The music wasn't a factor and while I thought a bit more polishing up of the visual and auditory experience might've made the DVD even better, the laws of diminishing returns applied here as much as in other gonzo releases of late.

Body of Review: Eli Thomas is one of the newest directors for Combat Zone that I've been privy to reviewing the work of. His first title making it to me was The Girl Next Door 4; a series devoted to newcomers in porn which is special given the entire company follows this dynamic on almost all of their works these days (excluding their MILF titles of course). I generally pass up newcomer titles since the lack of experience shows in most porn these days; the majority of ladies proving to be as passive as can be which does nothing for me unless I'm the one doing the fucking. This time, the gals were all attractive, lean, and sexually skilled to the point that I didn't care what the title was because they were doing it all with some nice moves. That said, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Cassandra Cruz, a slightly exotic looking teenager in pink bra & panties as well as a denim skirt, was up first as the Latina sat down on the staircase and masturbated before giving muscular Dick Delaware a show. He was into the little hotty and stood up for her to get a taste of his cock while she was on her knees. His dick seemed perfectly suited for her; thick enough and long enough but not too huge so she could wrap her lips around it before deepthroating it. His throatfucking of her mouth pushed her limits a little but she was clearly in her element and no stranger to man meat and he rubbed his finger on her precious pucker to get a whiff of her ass as it turned him on even more. I liked her even more since she was an active rider once she sat on his cock, the vaginal passage getting quite a workout as she impaled herself soundly in the process. She did some PTM and her all natural titties rippled as much as her ass cheeks during the penetrative action. She was vocal in her enjoyment and the warm scene ended when he jerked out a small load to her lovely face. In all, it was limited but a nice start to the movie for me.
Scene Two: Tiffany Summers, a beautiful little 18 year old brunette in a tight black top and camo skirt (but no panties), was up next as she teased the camera in a polished manner that worked for me. Her cookie looked moist as she rubbed it and the limited solo action in back of the house led to her slobbing the knobs of Jordan Ash (from the Bang Brothers) and Julius Pleasure. Jordan was almost instantly hard thanks to her looks and efforts but Julius needed a lot more work, the guy either missing out mentally or having too much of a workload. In any case, Tiffany was also an aggressive cocksucker and this ability of hers enhanced the scene even if Jordan couldn't refrain from giving her extensive directions; the guy getting the first dibs on nailing her pretty pussy in a passive doggy stance by the chair while she continued sucking off Julius. Both men got some pussy from her but the highlight was when she focused on Jordan as he held her up and she was grinding her hips into his. That was all I needed to know that I wanted to see more of her in action so hopefully other producers will hire her. She looked at the camera too much and had other rough edges but losing Julius until the ending when the men jerked off to her face for the glazed donut look was obviously helpful to her; the camera fading out too soon.
Scene Three: Jessie Jolie, a gorgeous 21 year old with bright eyes and a lean figure, was up next as she followed the general formula by masturbating in a chair on the porch. The camera panned up and down her body as she diddled herself, showing exactly why she was hired for the scene when her colorful panties were cast aside for easier access. Her scene partner for the day was clean cut Gotti and after the briefest of introductions, she was slobbing his knob with care; working his modest member to the bone as if to get an early wad of population pudding from it. He went to pounding her doggy style on the couch but she seemed mechanical during the act as he did all the work. Her "oh/ah" vocals got old but at least she picked up the pace when riding on top of his lap; the comment that she was coming striking me as unbelievable even for a porno. For his part, he had some major wood issues and his half erect cock was all he could finish with, dropping his modest load into her mouth and onto her face with a whole lot of vigorous jerking. She has a lot of potential that went untapped but the scene was a filler in most ways.
Scene Four: Kara Bare, a 19 year old redhead with a tiny and all natural body, was up next as she masturbated on the porch with her fingers. She has a million dollar smile and bright eyes but I prefer gals with bigger curves so seeing Dave Pounder and Dutch Morgan work her over was a mixed experience. They sucked her titties, rubbed her clitoris, and spent a little time going over her frame with caresses as she undressed them to obtain some manly meat from their pants. There might not have been as much as she wanted from them but she treated them to some fine oral action that helped Dutch get over his stage fright (Dave never had a problem in this area). The aggressive oral by the gal led to the guys taking turns with her mouth and pussy, Dave proving to be the more reliable woodsman by far as he lived up to his expectations throughout the scene. She was not particularly active in the penetration portions of the scene but was another gal that looked the part and showed potential, the scene ending with a couple of minor chest pops.
Scene Five: Vanessa, the cute 18 year old brunette (having turned 18 on 1/14/2007) from the front cover, was up last in what was billed as her very first scene inside the house. She was skinny and wore satin pink undies with a little muff buffer skirt over it but those came off quickly for the entrance of scene partner Rick Masters. I know he's not exactly the kind of guy you want wasting a brand new hotty but he has experience and at least you know she won't get too attached to him. The hummer was short but she actively rode his cock, the modest member never posing a threat to her labia as they bumped uglies. They did several positions and she engaged in PTM to clean him off a bit during the thunderstorm going on in the background, the leather ottoman serving as a comfortable place for him to pop her camera cherry (though I'm sure I've seen her before this). In any case, it was a decent closing scene worth checking out a few times, especially if you like them cute, willing, and inexperienced. The load of semen hit her mouth hard and she finished him off with some post coital sucking, smiling that her efforts were appreciated by the cameraman.
Summary: The Girl Next Door 4 by director Eli Thomas for Combat Zone was their best title in a long time for me thanks to the lovely look of the ladies, the majority of them being very skilled at performing, and the heat generated as they sucked and fucked their way to stardom in the movie. The extras were light but the technical qualities were actually better than expected, only a few areas needing some polish from what I could tell so I rated the DVD as Recommended. In short, The Girl Next Door 4 had everything fans look for in a newcomer movie with attractive gals having a good time on camera; most of the ladies proving to be very new to porn when this was shot.
