Extra's: The best extra by far was the 29:52 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. It had a lot of photoshoot material in it and interviews with most of the ladies, each showing to have different reasons for being there (and differing levels of experience in the industry). There was a fair bit of nudity too but fans of the ladies will enjoy the interviews for giving an insider's glance at their lives more. There was also a popshot compilation from the scenes, a photogallery, and a slip cover over the DVD case.
Audio/Video Quality: Double Duty was presented in the industry standard 1.33:1 full frame color as shot by director DJ Dub for Combat Zone. The lighting was varied so some scenes looked substantially better than others, a few having a lot more color saturation than others as well as levels of grain I wouldn't brag about. Still, the composition of the scenes tended to favorably enhance the looks of the ladies as best could be expected, the bitrate clocking in around the 5 Mbps range much of the time (though not always). The camera movement led me to believe that someone else held the camera a few times but whatever the reasons; it was not a poorly shot bit of gonzo fluff by any means. The audio was a bit less appealing as the 2.0 Dolby Digital English movie showed the usual 192 Kbps bitrate with no separation, limited dynamic range, and a droning musical score at the beginning of each scene that disappeared in no time (thankfully enough). Still, I could hear the voices of the cast, along with background noises and directions barked out, so your mileage may vary considerably.

Body of Review: DJ Dub is one of the newest directors for Combat Zone these days. As a slew of newcomers try to make the cut, company owner Dion Giarrusso continually searches for the kind that know how to make mountains out of molehills, churn straw into gold, and otherwise apply a modern day form of alchemy to make the best scenes with minimal input. The company is almost always focused on using the youngest or newest gals in the industry for their movies, making this task even harder as the ladies have little fanbase support in their quest to impress. The latest offering by this director is Double Duty, a set of five double penetration scenes with gals that were not at all accustomed to doing them. Applying the newcomer dynamic, this is supposed to give a fresh new look at the subgenre of hardcore sex, appealing mainly to those of us needing an extra bit of kink to get us through the scenes with pud in hand. If you're still interested, here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Oksana, a lean redhead with red fetishware and a large black anal plug stretching her rectum for the scene, was up first after an obligatory tease session using motion dehancement and a droning score. The blemishes on her ass looked poorly covered by piles of make up yet the slutty look the woman projected seemed perfectly suited for this ode to double penetrations so I watched on with a degree of interest as she took on Oliver Strelly and Joachim Kessef. Her anal masturbation was interrupted by the porn version of ebony & ivory; the gal jerking them off as she bounced on a fake cock filing her ass. Her oral skills were fairly solid too and in no time she went from alternating between sucking them off to taking turns allowing them to tap her pussy and ass. The culminated in the advertised DP, the lady not nearly as active a rider when stuffed in both holes, their wads of population pudding gracing her face and the gag she went back to wearing rather than into her tummy where it belonged. They had little chemistry but the energy of the scene was fairly well refined; employing a nasty attitude by the gal to overcome any personal lack of spark between the trio.
Scene Two: Hannah West, a brunette with pretty eyes and small titties, was up next in a sheer reddish piece of lingerie as she gave an announcement about her superior sexual skills while kicking back on the living room table. She had a paunch and wasn't initially very inspiring to Will Powers and Jay Huntington; slobbing their knobs mechanically at first. As the scene progressed, the men figured out that using her as a passive cock socket worked a lot better than expecting her to show her vaunted skills, the gal getting turned on by this change of pace in the process to the point where she almost achieved her level of stated competence. The oral led to boning where the men drilled both holes, the vaginal pounding showing her to be more active than the anal and the DP showing her to be out of her element for the most part. The men didn't care by that point as they were lost to their personal rhythms, neither in tune with the other as they humped away on her holes in virtual trances. I liked that she got some oral from the men too (face sitting no less) and she was not a bad fuck; just not as good as she advertised. The scene ended when the guys took turns beating off to her face, the gal licking some of the spew up but not all of it to the fading camera.
Scene Three: Naudia Brown, a perky brunette reminding me a bit of a younger Gia Jordan, was up next wearing a t-shirt proclaiming her love of anal sex as she stood above the cameraman/director for a short interview and tease. Her ass was slight but tasty looking, the gal following instructions well as she slowly stripped in a carefree manner. She masturbated on the black couch before being joined by an orally inclined Jenner; the man working her over before hippy Rick Masters gave her a peace pipe to smoke in the form of his modest cock. She provided a solid oral experience to both of them before they switched gears and started pounding her holes; the men enjoying the youthful meat layed out before them as she got dripping wet at their ministrations. The inevitable anal was not as easy on her, nor was the DP but she did give an active ride all the same in most positions that elevated her status in the movie over that of a few of her peers. She also did taste testing before swallowing their loads of semen presented her mouth, providing the classic ending to a hardcore gonzo scene. Yum!
Scene Four: Mia Grey, a cute 20 year old Floridian brunette, had great legs and a chunky ass, teasing with it as she told the director to smack it and find a cock for it. While she struck me as a stripper type of gal in the living room setting, John West and Jay Huntington, went right to work peeling off her neon colored bikini outfit after tearing off their own clothing to give her free access to their meat. She took turns sucking them off and was clearly no stranger to having new cocks in her mouth; her pussy getting a few licks too before she took dicks inside of it. She was not a very active rider this time and the men made up for it by drilling her extra hard, the anal and DP serving to show she was way beyond her comfort zone as the men barked out orders. She had a lot of untapped potential but the porn moans did not help any as they worked her over this time, ending the scene by glazing her face a bit with semen (this was reportedly her first DP and given the lack of quality control present, I believed it).
Scene Five: Desiree Diamond, the cutie on the front cover, was up last and I found her to have a certain appealing quality in her personality, despite the artistic manner the opening tease was shot in. Her neon pink fishnet top and camo skirt looked fetching on her curvy body, the introduction of Jenner and Rick Masters to the scene when it moved into the living room a nice touch. Rick liked snacking on her crack as Jenner fingered her perfect pucker, the men suitably warming her up before getting head from the gal and pounding away at her holes. She was another active vaginal rider that slowed down considerably when the anal began but the way her respiration rate accelerated and facial expressions projected, I thought she was having fun with them. The heat and energy of the scene were not quite matched by any sense of chemistry but she was a good lay that could learn to be great if given the chance, receiving a facial with an open mouth and closed eyes before round two covered her lower abdomen.
Summary: Double Duty by director DJ Dub for Combat Zone might not be on anyone's short list at awards time and the ladies were definitely not the type you're going to necessarily search out in other titles (with a couple of exceptions), but despite spotty technical matters and a single extra that added value, the advertised action provided a fair amount of fuck for the buck due to the replay value and strokability factor. Further, some of the ladies had a little spark going for them that could translate into something deeper if given the chance to germinate, making Double Duty just good enough to get a rating of Recommended. I don't think this was the best niche for the company to shoot for given their reliance on newcomers but it does prove they won't shy away from using domestic ladies in their harsher offerings; and use them fairly well.
