Call Girl Confidential

Vivid Entertainment

Genre: Feature

Director: Paul Thomas

Assistant Director: Shylar Cobi

Cast: Monique Alexander, Steven St. Croix, Devon Lee, Friday, James Deen, Marcos Leon, Amber Peach, Mr. Marcus
Non-sex roles: Paul Thomas, Shylar Cobi, and others that weren't credited

Length: 87:38 minutes

Date of Production: 2/19/2007

Extra's: The extras began with the typical offering of five unrelated bonus scenes from the company vaults including short bits from The American Dream, Breakup Sex, Nameless, Sex & Violins, Where The Boys Aren't 18 (totaling 72:34 minutes of material). This was followed by the usual photogallery and text biography for contract gal Monique Alexander, four trailers to Debbie Loves Dallas, Double Up, Stood Up, and Off The Hook, some spam, and my usual favorite; a 4:33 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Dizzy. Monique was given the lion's share of the short feature, PT directing the cast, and some random bits of fun fluff were included too. As always, there was a second side to the front cover but as with most recent Vivid offerings, it was only a set of four covers to other titles instead of more artwork.

Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: Call Girl Confidential was presented in an anamorphic widescreen 1.78:1 ratio offering as shot by director Paul Thomas for Vivid Entertainment. Like some of his more noteworthy titles of late, this one as shot in HD, though presented in the SD format (for now) as shot in 1080i to provide a lot of resolution supporting some of the effects (making it look more like a real movie than just a porno). The lighting was reasonably well handled (with minor exceptions in a few of the scenes that had less lighting or conversely, too much lighting), limiting the grain, video noise, and other distracting flaws seen all too often in porn these days; appearing to be shot nicely by talented cameraman Ralph Parfait with help from Fliktor. The composition of the camera angles and lighting were not always optimal this time, the camera spending too little time in the first scene and too long on some of the later establishing shots. The fleshtones were accurate this time and the DVD mastering was well done, making it look pretty solid in terms of visual quality (though perhaps the compression ratio was set too high as the bitrate was averaging about 4.5 Mbps). The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital offering (at 192 Kbps) with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent thanks to Miles Long. For some reason, the levels were mixed lower than usual but aside from the added background noise from doing so; the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal tracks nonexistent.

Body of Review: Paul Thomas is generally considered to have his choice of projects while working as a director for Vivid Entertainment but he does not seem to "play it safe" very often, sometimes taking smaller projects that explore his thoughts on broader topics like religion, human nature, and other ideas that come to him. His latest release does all of this with Call Girl Confidential, a feature starring Monique Alexander as a hooker looking for a better life. She turns to an old friend that has found a calling of his own, the results somewhat mixed for both of them when her pimp decides he isn't too happy with the outcome. The back cover said it like this: "Cherry is a street hooker having a difficult time in her chosen profession. She hates her job, her friends and her pimp. She wants out but doesn't know how. After an encounter gone wrong with one her johns, she runs into an old classmate who turns out to be a preacher...Marcos Leon...who's also is at odds with his chosen profession. After a scorching anal scene, and some wild interracial with Mr. Marcus, Monique comes to terms with her life on the streets. And Marcos' life in a church. And the come to each other. And the rest is purely Confidential." It was a short but interesting little dramatic exercise that did not skimp on the heat, energy, or story elements, making it a nice one for couples and those not wanting to see a strictly gonzo bone-fest as populates the majority of the market today. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms were used at times:

Scene One: Monique Alexander, the hotty contract gal on the front cover, was up first as she wore a busy pink & black toss away dress when entering the hotel room to suffer through some bought & paid hooker sex with aging lothario Steven St. Croix; each playing their roles with the kind of precision that begets the usual porn acting for some reason. She put on a show for him and the camera both, crawling over to him to kiss him as though she cared. His hairy body looked like he gave up his former regime of controlling the Sasquatch look but he savored her lean physique in the manner any lonely loser hiring a hooker would do; applying some porn licking and fingering as she pretended to enjoy it. Her blowjob was another matter altogether though since she showed a great deal of skill and energy; the kind that she has picked up over the years in the jizz biz that have served her so well. I was surprised that they used a condom at first, then considering it kept their characters grounded in reality, the moderately active vaginal screwing often appearing less explicit than usual but in keeping with the story elements. Make no mistake about it, Monique is a world class piece of ass and Steven did a good job holding out before launching his wad of population pudding on her lower back. I'd probably like her more with another fifteen pounds on her frame but can't deny her physical appeal.

Scene Two: Devon Lee and Friday, both busty gals with a few extra eye pleasing pounds on their frames, were already having sex with scrawny James Deen in the motel room when the next scene started. He was banging Devon while Friday kept close, the gal sucking on Devon's nipples and kissing her before getting in on the action with his cock. Friday was actually an even more aggressive rider here and the relative lack of oral by the trio did not harm the show, especially considering the manner in which everyone kept in character. Devon was on assist for awhile but also engaged in some PTM/PTOGM and while the scene wasn't as heated as the previous two, there was some strokable material contained within it. James finished up with a minimal titty pop on Devon, the fluid barely showing up in the slightly dark room.

Scene Three: Monique Alexander, this time wearing a slinky black top and blue jean skirt, was up with priestly Marcos Leon after he saved her from the mean old pimp of the movie played by Marcus. They went back to Marcus' house where he showered and she joined him, corrupting the priest to some pleasing music that I admit to liking more than usual in a porno, the gal dropping her cloths before joining him in the bathroom to blow him. Religious concerns aside, she showed a tender side as she cleaned his meat pipe, the pair going into the bedroom mysteriously dry for him to reciprocate and start banging her on the bed. The camera work was a bit clunky this time, not using the smoother transitional shots or edits to move about as elsewhere. They used a condom to bang and she was actively riding him in heated form, the passion displayed elevating the replay value a bit more than usual for me. There was a limited amount of anal too, no condom appearing present on his cock as he drilled her backdoor (Shades of Sodom!) before he gave a large load all over her back. Whew!

Scene Four: Monique Alexander, trying to save her old buddy Marcos, then coaxed curvy Amber Peach and gun toting Mr. Marcus into the kitchen. Dropping to her knees to suck him off, Monique gave the impression that she did not want to share but gave in and let Amber have some black cock too, the gals doing his balls too. Amber then ate Monique while Monique blew Marcus, the man donning a rubber to pork the gal on a table. Amber got some cock inside her too, riding it more actively in her pussy than in her chunky ass; both gals playfully enjoying the titty pop he rubbed out at the end of the scene.

Bonus Scene 1: The American Dream: Monique Alexander, this time in a sexy black dress, was up with muscular Marcus London next in bed, with the guy going down on her to get her in the mood for some fun. While his lizard flicking approach was kind of lame, her performing like it felt great was pretty believable so I let it pass as I waited for her to slob his knob. Using her hand to gland abilities, it didn't take long for her to power suck him into a raging hard on, resulting in the couple aggressively boning one another with the mandatory protection he wore. It didn't weaken the scene one bit as they tore into each other, her being on top making it all the more powerful when she bucked and pounded her ass cheeks on his lap. He jerked out a modest load to her abdomen to finish things up, the scene fading away after that. The energy levels and chemistry were about as good as before but not as much as I prefer.

Bonus Scene 2: Breakup Sex: Monique Alexander, up again in a pacing nightmare, was in the darkened bedroom as she teased really well on the bed. This attracted the attention of muscular Marco Banderas/Duato and the two were seductively kissing and stroking each other with some smoldering chemistry and passion in no time. In that sense, I got my wish to see her working with a better meat puppet, although I would have expected to see such a scene at the end of the movie instead of back to back with her only other scene. She proved to be a decent cock sucker here, working his rod slowly but skillfully as he felt her up. He reciprocated and sucked on her meaty pussy lips and ass crack before they screwed with a sense of abandon using another condom. He was larger and she took a more passive role this time but I liked it all the same as her lean figure and attractive face distracted me from my usual desire to see a gal really impaling herself soundly. The scene eventually ended when he unleashed his load of population pudding on her abdomen and chest; the gal eyeing him as she stroked him a few last times.

Bonus Scene 3: Sex & Violins: Monique Alexander, in a slinky black dress and no underwear, then picked up Steven St. Croix outside the club to have a scene inside an office. He spent a lot more time going down on her than he did with Roxy, savoring her taste and bubbly nature more for some reason. For her part, she really went to town on his cock, deepthroating and licking it aggressively as though she liked guys twice her age as sex partners. He did the work screwing before jerking off a modest load of population pudding but her oral must have been too much for him to handle given the brevity of the vaginal screwing.

Bonus Scene: Where The Boys Aren't 18: Briana Banks, the hotty kneeling on the second row in the middle, and lovely Monique Alexander, lying back on the lower left hand corner, were up next in a setting involving large plush pillows on a huge couch. Monique took the early lead as she worked Briana over; rubbing the clitoris and sucking pussy after kissing the gal. This was a decidedly high energy scene with both gals getting into the spirit of the action, elevating the passion and chemistry shared between them more than a little as it continued. Briana did fine when orally working Monique over too, leading to her getting plundered by a large glass dildo ever so slowly. The plastic bracelets and bobbles they wore got in the way but if you like that they kept some clothing on, it was quite an inspirational experience.

Summary: Call Girl Confidential by director Paul Thomas for Vivid Entertainment was worth a rating of Recommended thanks to the efforts of Monique Alexander and other ladies in the movie as much as the direction by Paul and his crew. There was some replay and solid strokability going on here with the plotted elements providing just enough to give the show some texture. The extras were the usual batch and while I would have preferred more material unique to the movie itself, having seen most of the bonus scenes and other stuff, I can't deny that much of it added value. In short, Call Girl Confidential was a nice showcase for the talents, sexual and nonsexual, of Monique as she develops her skills as an actress as well as continues her climb up the porn ladder.
