In a Nutshell- Dark, and a Little Sleazy at Times
Itís amazing what a lack of professional lighting (or perhaps, mediocre DVD mastering) can do to a fuck film. When the brightness is balanced and maintained, everything looks on the up and up. But let the levels dim, and suddenly, everything gives off a 42ndStreet gritty grindhouse vibe. This mostly happens when our director dives in for an up close penetration shot. What makes this even more intriguing is the fact that Tight Fit Productions provides two separate discs for consumers Ė a standard DVD and a High Def version. Both carry the same image, just offered in different tech specs: 1.33:1 for the regular DVD and 1.85:1 for the anamorphic widescreen HD presentation. Donít get too excited, however. Itís merely a matter of cropping.
In a Nutshell- Basic Behind the Scenes Featurette
Itís Dillanís world, especially when it comes to the added content. Aside from the standards Ė trailers, web info, cumshot recap Ė we get a Making-of documentary that finds the actress fixing her hair and describing her career. Occasionally, while sheís talking, outtakes from the sex scenes are featured. Itís interesting, but doesnít really pick up until she stops gabbing, and the extras let the performers speak for themselves. Itís always fascinating to hear the mechanics of a porn movie Ė the carefully controlled positions, the frequent need to stop the action to save a pop, etc. While a bit stiff at times, the overall production is plausible, and enticing.

First Impressions:
Newcomers to the porn industry have it rough. Not only are they competing with established talent, but there is a perception of ďposeurĒ that comes with the territory. Indeed, in this day and age, where hardcore is generated by wannabe jocks with camcorders, the notion of doing smut for ďthe sexĒ has quickly been replaced by balling for a buck. Some gals embrace the slut stance. Others look for ways to rise above and make a stand as a star. Clearly, in the case of Dillanís Day Off,recent 2006 AVN Winner Dillan Lauren is out to prove a point. She intends to use this four scene showcase as a means of making a name for herself. Either that, or she could only manage this almost solo shot from newcomer Tight Fit. Whatever the case, itís not a bad vanity outing. Participating in three of the sequences, she proves capable of group grinds as well as wicked one on one. Itís the rest of the cast that could use some invigorating.
The Sex Scenes:

There is one word to describe the sharking here Ė ďbreathlessĒ. Not in the good meaning of the word, however. Weíre talking about the literal translation of the term. This is flesh peddling that, once it starts, never lets up. Itís all rush, rush, rush, and BANG, BANG, BANG. Itís not overly aggressive of abusive, but it does tend to keep pushing past 11 when a nice 5 or 6 would do. The guilty party here appears to be Hillary Scott. Sheís like a hardcore hummingbird, flitting from dick to dick looking for a drill before she hops on the shaft and starts shimmying. Again, this is not a bad thing, just a tiring thing. Itís like XXX without the captured in-the-moment magic. It makes the erotica feel like a race Ė and the audience can barely keep up.
Scene 1: Dillan Lauren, Hillary Scott, Scott Nails
Acts Performed: Blowjob, Dueling Head, Nutjob, Mish, Cowgirl, Anal Cowgirl, Alternating A to M, $hot in Mouth
Score:3 out of 5

Since the premise for this entire film is two gals skipping work to get fucked, you anticipate that the sex would be fiery and enthusiastic. And for the most part, you get your wish. Hillary takes the lead during the majority of the positions, and when she gets worked up, the steam is palpable. Dillan is no slouch, but her overall demeanor seems more sultry than striking. And as meat puppets go, Scott is more or less sedentary. He delivers the dick, but does very little to convince us that heís nothing more than a knob for the girls to knock. Itís all part of the <b>Dillanís Day Off</b> dynamic. Itís all about babes who like to ball. The mandatory member is more or less dismissible.
Scene 2: Dillan Lauren, John West
Acts Performed: Blowjob, Reverse Cowgirl, Anal Doggy, Choking, Anal Mish, $hot on Ass
Score: 2.5 out of 5

Some muscle men carry their bulk with style. Others look like they are one roid rage injection away from popping. Mr. West is somewhere in the middle, coming off as powerful at first, about to pass out near the end. Thankfully, his costar and the setting (a shower) compensate for any pumped up passivity. On her own, our star is very capable. She really connects with her pretend paramour and makes us believe in the chemistry between the two. She also isnít afraid to expose her own shortcomings. In this day and age of fake tits and other plastic surgery disasters, her natural body and slightly less toned physicality is a welcome reprieve (of course, after finishing this review, the Dirge learned that Dillan has gone under the knife and bought herself some boobs. Oh well).   
Scene 3: Hillary Scott, Kris Slater
Acts Performed: Foreplay, Cunnilingus, Blowjob, Nutjob, Mish, Anal Doggy, A to M, Cowgirl w/ Butt Plug, $hot in Mouth
Score: 2 out of 5

On the opposite end of the ďgoing soloĒ spectrum is Ms. Scott. Even the last minute inclusion of a hefty butt plug canít save what is, basically, an underwhelming slice of smut. It could be the fact that there is absolutely no connection between the couple. Kris is capable, but he seems to only be taking up sex space. Hillary, on the other hand, comes off as disconnected from everything, including the camera. Normally, that would be good. Weíd want to think that the lens is capturing something natural and off the cuff. But porn also has a facet of performance, and in this case, both actors forget that. Instead, we get some decent drilling, but thatís about it.
Scene 4: Dillan Lauren, Hillary Scott, Lexi Love, Rick Masters, Justin Magnum
Acts Performed: Blowjob, Dueling Head, Reverse Cowgirl, V to M, Anal Reverse Cowgirl, Alternating V to M, A to M, Cowgirl, DP in Cowgirl Mode, Anal Cowgirl, $hot to Mouths
Score: 2 out of 5

As orgiastic free for alls go, this one is incredibly controlled. In fact, save for a few moments when all five of the performers appear onscreen together, this feels like two separate sequences (albeit with interchangeable man meat) fused together. Thereís a lot of pre-position posturing going on, guys getting hummed by gals going goofy for groin. Yet once we get to the slamminí, itís mostly regular and reverse range riding. It has to be said that our star does good DP, even if her providers seem frightened of actually getting close to each other. The direction also deceives us. The minute we switch to double door action, the camera closes in. All we see is man ass and lady taint.    
Disco Dirge Peter Meter Rating: 2.5 out of 5 (Recommended)
Cohabitation Certification:Granted

As relative newcomers to the porn game, Tight Fit Productions and Dillan Lauren can be proud of this project. Itís not the best fuck and suck the Dirge has seen, but it gets the job done in ways that are enticing and erotic. As with most adult movies, the premise is quickly tossed aside, and without the ďgirls gone wildĒ set-up, the scenes would have played just fine. Therefore, a Recommended rating is easily awarded. While far from classic, itís not crap either. Couples will also foam over the slightly aggressive, mostly sensual nature of the boot knocking. As a result, a Cohabitation Certification is easily granted. It would be nice to think that, in this freer day and age, babes who want boner would gladly take a personal day to get the dick they so desperately need. Yet even in the world of fantasy, the logistics of Dillanís Day Off are about as believable as the XXX action.
