Audio/Video Quality: Jack's Teen America 20 was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Robby D. for release by Digital Playground. The lighting was reasonably solid here, as expected given this was Robby's standard type of gonzo, and that meant that the limited amounts of grain and other visual elements used to lend a sense of texture were minimal. While I generally prefer flood lighting in my gonzo porn, Robby has a way of showing it all with less light, the tint of the colors only slightly off as a result. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes, though the composition of the angles was changed up a bit depending on the scene in question; sometimes using a POV angle before the sex took place. The composition of the shots and the editing enhanced the look of the ladies more than a little bit too, proving what this critic has to say about the production team led by Robby (who did all the camerawork to allow the talented Nick "The Wiz" P. the task of cleaning up the goofs with the editing and music this time) with the DVD mastering revealing no compression artifacts (the bitrate varying but often staying near the mid 5 Mbps range). The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English (using 384 Kbps) with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the other Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. There wasn't much separation between the channels, if any, but aside from some whispered vocals by the men, the ladies were almost always clearly heard.
Body of Review: Robby D. is currently enjoying a lot of accolades for his work in expanding the gonzo field at Digital Playground. Whatever else can be said about his exploits, he has definitely brought the company into modern times for fans of hardcore sex that aren't into the couple's style offerings the company used to focus its efforts on. His latest release is Jack's Teen America: Mission 20: Special Contract Starvaganza, the movie coming out next week as the sequel to Teen America 19. The idea of the series is a beauty contest where Robby is "Jack", a guy tossed out by his parents working to pay the bills as his assistants have sex with the contestants that are trying to increase their chances of winning. There was a lot of humor as Jack and friends play the ladies to see more flesh, cop a feel, and work ever closer with the contestants. What set this volume apart from previous efforts is the age of the scenes, many of them taken from years ago and even the most recent of them from 2006 (a good thing in the case of providing Jana Cova at work when she was a fresh little hotty). That said, here's a quick look at the scenes of this volume, noting that no condoms were worn:
Scene One: Shay Jordan, the sexy little blogger sticking her ass out on the left side of the cover, was up first with Mick Blue. She was 19 years old at the time and acting playful about Jack watching her jiggling natural breasts; discussing her studies in the art of "ninjism", a porn offshoot of ninjitsu from what I gathered. She looked funny is her outfit, battling it out with sound man Mick; the man declining to continue the fight when she whipped out a large black dildo. That led to another kind of fight, Shay sucking him off in the living room as another aspect of her craft, the art of ninja stripping, came into play. That she could pull it off with a straight face was remarkable, dispensing with her plastic sword as she actively worked his fleshy one; credit to Mick for warming her up orally first. Shay has not always been an active cock rider in her career but this was one of those times when she impaled herself soundly on the rod, making heated moans during the chemistry filled scene along the way. The scene itself closed up when Mick busted a nut of population pudding on her face; starting off the contract special version of the series very well indeed.
Scene Two: Jana Cova, the beautiful blond shown second from the left on the front cover, and hotty Sophia Santi, third from the left on the cover, were up next in a great little lesbian scene together. Jana played the sound assistant this time and she was frisky in regards to frolicking with her then contract buddy; both of them made up to the hilt. This was one of the shortest scenes in the series to date, with the kissing, the rubbing, and the oral sex all given some screen time but not nearly enough for this fan.
Scene Three: Sue Diamond, a curvy Slovakian blond in a skimpy pink dress, was then up on the couch with real life partner Mick Blue; the man sporting enough hair to remind me how old the scene must have been. He was the translator here and she proved to be a willing participant while showing her fine physical attributes. That led to her aggressively sucking off his cock while voyeur Jack moaned in appreciation, her make up a bit too heavy but her fantastic body responding well to the chemistry the performers provided. Unlike many scenes elsewhere, this was an oral and vaginal bout of boning though, but I could not deny the appeal of the cutie so actively riding cock in the numerous positions. I like Sue (no matter what porn name she uses; currently under the name of Diana Doll) and this was one of her better performances, ending when Mick rubbed his load out to her face.
Scene Four: Holly Morgan, a curvy little hotty with light hair that has been in a number of movies for the company (causing speculation that she was under consideration for a contract in the past), was up next as a gal with a need for seed. The scene title card mentioned her having the prettiest pussy ever and it really was a nice one, the lady saying she wanted to win the contest ever since she sucked her first cock. Marco Banderas eyed the 19 year old with the kind of lustful stares most men his age give hotties, his limited language skills not needed given his obvious intent to get some of that pussy; some silly dialogue leading the men to the house as Jack shot footage of her panty covered ass. Marco savored his opportunity to check out her ass too, sticking his head there to her delight. His limited oral led to her slobbing his knob, perhaps not as aggressively as she has in the past, but a decent enough round of oral all the same. Her biggest strength was her pretty pussy wrapping tightly around his rod as she slowly rode him, taking longer to warm up but managing to prove her appeal going beyond the look of her cookie thanks to her tightness. She engaged him in a few positions before he jerked off to her titties, not a bad scene to enjoy from the looks of it.
Scene Five: Hillary Scott, the blond from Chicago seen on the far right hand side of the cover, was up last with Mick Blue (maybe it should have been called the "Mick Blue Special") in the living room. She was wearing red undies including a bra and men's briefs, teasing the men on the couch as she worked her charms. This scene was shot before she won her performer of the year award last year, still kind of fresh at 23 years old but looking like a teenager too. She rubbed herself and was soon sucking Mick off like a champion, using her eyes, hands, tits, and mouth in unison to milk him dry. I almost thought she was trying to finish him off early because of her very aggressive oral but she kept the lucky guy going at length, the dynamic continuing during the vaginal action and into the anal where she simply did not slow down. Comments by some that Hillary is shot out not withstanding, she provided some spice to the show, easily the sluttiest performer of the day who wanted to win the title. Exactly when the scene was shot, I couldn't say (Mick had hair back then) but she was over the top and not acting with an attitude so I would suggest it was from early to mid 2005. She did taste testing in the form of ATM and opened her mouth for the facial; smiling and offering some post coital sucking to finish this one out.
Summary: Jack's Teen America 20 by director Robby D. for release by Digital Playground later this month, was a mixed ride well worth checking out if you like the ladies as much as I do. While the scenes were not as consistently heated as usual for some of them, there was a lot of fuck for the buck in terms of replay value and strokability that the lack of extras could not weaken all that much. The technical values were not as polished as some of Robby's more recent works but the energy levels were decent so you will probably agree this one should be Recommended. In short, Jack's Teen America 20: Special Contract Starvaganza might not win any awards for spelling but like Jack's Teen America 19 before it, the show worked as a porno quite well, upholding the high standards of the Teen America Pageant that may some day warrant a feature from the crew.
