Length: 177:07 minutes
Date of Production: 9/26/2007

Extras: The best extra was the 10:48 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage. The emphasis was on providing nudity and more sex (the dog chasing the anal toys was hilarious though). This was followed by 46 seconds of bloopers, a photogallery, some limited filmographies, a helpful cast list, and a cumshot recap.

Audio/Video Quality: Anal Acrobats was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Jay Sin for Evil Angel under their Buttman Magazine Choice line. The bitrate was usually in the mid to upper 3 Mbps range but the basic lighting covered the action fairly well so there were not a lot of shadows around during the four scenes. The flesh tones were slightly too saturated and the composition of the shots was not always the best for the ladies but the anal tricks that so fascinated director Jay Sin were obviously the most important thing to capture for him; the wacky fun a bit much at times for my sensibilities. Still, the action was clearly recorded and the raw energy of the cast was caught better than I expected; making it a decent looking fuck flick in most ways. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using a 192 Kbps bitrate; the lack of separation and dynamic range meaning the audio was a bit flatter than hoped for. It was low end audio for the most part but given the fetish niche of the movie, this is to be expected.

Body of Review: Jay Sin is the latest direct at Evil Angel under their Buttman Choice program to test out new talent. As with other’s in the series, his work was mostly fetish related in his most recent outing for the company; Anal Acrobats. The idea behind the four scenes was to showcase nasty anal sex with a lot of toys (often balls but not limited to them) used on the back doors of the female cast. There was some significant tease going on here at times but much of it relating to the toys was repetitious and therefore weaker than expected. Still, anal fiends might appreciate all the circus act sex taking place here more than I seemed to if that’s what you’re into. Here’s a brief glimpse into the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene Three had some good times too.
Scene One: Dana DeArmond, the popular internet gal in a bunny outfit on the top of the front cover, was up first with cute Sasha Grey; the gal on the lower portion of the cover. Dana was bouncing around in a silly manner, dry humping Sasha, before sniffing her ass and orally stimulating it. After some ass play, Sasha laid an “egg” in the form of a black golf ball out of her ass; Dana licking it before plopping it back inside. This led to more analingus and play with multiple balls, Dana’s tongue licking ass crack like a professional having lots of fun. Sasha sat on Dana’s face and the process was soon repeated with Sasha sucking balls out of Dana’s ass. Dana then took larger beads in her ass, applied a vibrator to Sascha’s ass, and the two continued for awhile until the end when Dana had some clamps applied to her pussy lips (her ass reddened from all the activity).
Scene Two: Aline, Bobbi Starr, and Christian X, were up next after the gals warmed up with some aerobic exercises in the home gym. I liked the leotards creeping up the ass cracks of the ladies; Aline’s red one contrasting with Bobbi’s white outfit. The stretching allowed the gals some fine tease footage and after the rimming was started, Bobbi pulled out a series of toys to play with. Aline took a shine to them and was soon lubing them up with her saliva; Bobbi penetrating her perfect pucker immediately afterwards. This led to more golf ball antics, other toys, and some vaginal play added in for good measure. Surprisingly enough, a small baseball bat was next to go inside of Aline’s ass even though it was not pushed far inside for those wanting to embrace the circus act sex nature of the action. As with the previous scene, the ATM was common and Bobbi was nearly as anally versatile. As their lesbian romp seemed to come to an end, Christian joined them and given how anally receptive he has been (in both straight as well as gay porn), it seemed fitting somehow. The gals slobbed his knob and balls aggressively, taking turns sitting on his face. The gals then started taking his cock bareback anally, the ATOGM and energy levels dropping off a little at first but picking up with time. The scene ended when Bobbi jerked Christian off to her face; sharing the cock with Aline as the spent man nearly passed out while watching them kiss.

Scene Three: Lucy Taylor and Sandra Parker, both wearing neon green outfits with precious little material to them, were up next in a colorful room that looked like it either came out of the late 1960’s or was inspired by the game “Twister”. They engaged in various oral and anal contact too; pushing bouncing balls inside each other’s asses while orally servicing each other somewhat mechanically. The faked porn moans were not too offensive but the scene dynamic was largely a replay of the first scene so it lost points for limited creativity as well as a lack of heat. The ass play and analingus were the dominant acts here but aside from pushing each other’s limits, there wasn’t a whole lot of anything exciting going on.
Scene Four: Sophie Dee, Julie Night, and Andrew Andretti, were up last and their scene started at just after the two hour mark in the movie. Sophie had a white top on, Julie a pink top, and both wore white tube sox with their skimpy blue jean shorts. The ladies initially played with a large gumball straight out of the machine, moving to taste testing each other’s titties before eating each other out in a 69 position. The face sitting was kind of fun but even though I thought the gals had chemistry, the sexual antics appeared to be nothing new. I expected the emphasis to remain on anal and oral but the same old “tricks with balls” act was boring by now. That some green goop was used as anal lubricant was gross too and the sword sized dildo did nothing for me. Julie’s limits were pushed more than Sophie’s but the tired act was then replaced by third tier mope squad member Andrew giving the dick to the gals who savored their oral experience with him even though he was small compared to what they had been using. Julie passively took his dick in her ass the most, Sophie getting left-over’s as the ball play continued. Sophie took the facial on her ball and cumswapped it with Julie before the scene and movie finished up; a weak ending for me to a very mixed fuck flick.
Summary: Anal Acrobats by director Jay Sin for Evil Angel was an example of how a formulaic approach doesn’t always work so well. The technical values were pretty decent and the cast was appealing to me (at least the ladies were) but as with many other things, a little of the toy play went a very long way and got stale after awhile. The warm start then changed to a mediocre middle and ending so I rated it as a Rent It. In short, Anal Acrobats was less about the cunning array of stunts than the stunning array of... well, you get my drift. For the fetish obsessed fan of anal and balls, this will be a great deal of fun but for the rest of you, it was lacking in replay value needed to elevate the score.
