Morgan Ray and Jenner
Length: 136:52 minutes
Date of Production: 4/26/2008
Jaycie Lane and Sascha
Extras: The very best extra was a set of 17:55 minutes worth of strip tease dances by the ladies. Each of these proved the ladies could gyrate in sexy fashion, a few of them more skillfully than others but all of it was strokable nonetheless. The next best extra was the 6:23 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that gave a couple of the ladies a chance to provide some career details in an interview setting (focusing on Julia and Morgan but Mike hamming it up all the same). There was a playful quality to the way they spoke, Julia always welcome in such extras. There were some trailers, a cum shot recap from the scenes, a photogallery, and a true double sided DVD cover as well as a slip cover.

Audio/Video Quality: Mother Load 4 was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Mike Quasar for Zero Tolerance using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases. The lighting was basic but strong, eliminating the shadows and grain like most of Mike's works in the past. The grain was minimal as was the video noise and I got the impression that Mike spent plenty of time to use the camera angles to enhance the looks of the nicely made up ladies. It was far from perfect but this did enhance the replay value for me as it showed more care than usual. The bitrate tended to hover around the mid 4.8 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it but the numbers alone do not tell the whole story in this regard. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, each of them used to softer lighting in recent scenes but not needing it for the purposes of this release. The primary audio track was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited due to the nature of the gonzo shoot (the secondary track being a similar Spanish dubbed track of minimal value to me). There was no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was as truncated as ever, standard gonzo audio being okay for most consumers.
Body of Review: Zero Tolerance has been a company with lofty goals for a long time, eventually bowing down to a pragmatic approach that has worked more often than not thanks to their lead director Mike Quasar and his talented manner of bringing out the best in performers. If I were a betting man, I would bet that his success rate for making a decent porno no matter who he had in front of the camera was better than any of his peers at the company (put together even) and I'm not just saying that because I've watched his level of quality for over ten years. His latest release to be screened at Casa Xcritic was Mother Load 4, a MILF title with a series of vignettes starring some mighty familiar names, not least of which were Julia Ann, Kylie Ireland, and curvy Phyllisha Anne, each of whom have been proven quantities in their scenes for years. It is interesting to note that Kylie and Julia have been in a lot of MILF titles of late (including several at ZT and their affiliates) but ultimately, quality MILFs are not as common as the flavor of the month gals even with the high demand for them that exists. The back cover said it like this: "One look at Mother Load 4, and you'd be proud to be called a mother fucker. These broads are a little older, a lot wiser, and "off the charts" horny! They definitely know what the fuck they're doing! From the balls-in-the-mouth cock-sucking to the gaping a-holes - these MILFs will satisfy all of your mother-humping cravings. Warning: You'll never look at your best friend's mother the same!" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Kylie Ireland, a redheaded wonder that has inspired more loads lost than Helen of Troy, was first as a woman in need of a deep tissue massage, having hired Nietzsche-read Christian for the job. He was polite and offered to step out while she undressed, Kylie using all the right code words to get a happy ending even before he laid a hand on her. He oiled her up as part of the tease and she kept him orally apprised of how well it was working for her, some quality time spent on her breasts and cookie making her moan like crazy. This was too much for her to handle so they moved to the love seat where she aggressively sucked him off, showing how fantastic her knob slobbing skills were to the guy. The limited vaginal pounding showed her to be just as active in the penetrative portions of the scene but the rapid transition to anal will please fans even more, her vocals adding substantial stroke value to the scene, Kylie slowing down but picking up the pace after some ATM. Several positions later, she was worshipping at the fountain of his genetic juice, milking him dry and showing some chemistry to spice it up. Whew!
Scene Two: Phyllisha Anne, a curvy blond that I haven't seen in a scene in ages, was up next as a distraught housewife about to divorce her shitty husband, prowling on James Deen to get revenge on her old man. She had uncharacteristically short hair (I prefer it longer) but her sex drive was better than ever, her sweetly curved ass enticing the guy to snack on her crack before she blew him aggressively and rode him quite hard. Phyllisha may not merit beauty queen status for most of you but sexually speaking, she has never been better than this on camera, using all three holes to drain his balls dry. The anal was too passive but aside from that, the pair did a surprisingly strong scene, the "cougar" aspect of it not lost on me. The scene ended with a wad of population pudding gracing her face but it would have been better to see her in charge of finishing him off in my opinion.
Scene Three: Morgan Ray, a curvy gal that reminded me a lot of Demi Dahlia, lucked out when she was interviewing for a stupid male assistant by coming across Jenner. I wasn't attracted to her in the slightest and the dog concept used on him was as lame as the acting the pair gave in the vignette, her surgically enhanced body looking a bit more worn than average for a gal in the industry. He went down on her as she provided some aural stimulation, the fake porn comments striking me as particularly goofy this time but she was sexually okay as he went down on her and fingered the aged cheese; her sloppy blowjob actually quite good. Her mouth didn't stay stuffed long enough but the highlight of the scene being her hummer, her moderately active vaginal ride ended up okay but not as heated. There was no chemistry between them but I applaud her energy levels even if it was mechanical sex (and the dog talk got old really quickly). Essentially, while I would probably fuck her for a few drinks, the screwing did not translate all that well as stroke material, the resulting pop shot in her mouth helping keep her poor attempts at dirty talk to a minimum, the scene probably better for the rest of the world than me.
Scene Four: Jaycie Lane, an attractive bleach blond that reminded me of a young Brooke Hunter, was up next as she took German lessons from Sascha on the couch. She wanted to be a flight attendant and he assisted her, joining the rest of the world in teaching a foreign language via dirty words like cock to elevate her interest level. The minimal set up was a bit lame but Jaycie was a decent cock sucker, her mouth clearly having seen a lot of action over the years. I like chunky chicks so she held some extra appeal for me, her attentive manner proving her qualifications as a stewardess as far as I was concerned, even into her active vaginal ride. She pumped her hips and gave it up in several positions, enjoying the mouthful of semen he launched into it at the end. While not on the same level as Kylie or Phyllisha, she had some untapped potential that I hope to see more of in the future.
Scene Five: Claudia Valentine, a sexy brunette that looked a whole lot like Lisa Ann, was up next as a model for photographer Mick Blue, her pink lingerie enhancing her appeal to me substantially. He was shooting naughty photos for her to give to her husband but she was so turned on that she wanted a little Mick action so she started pawing the foreign stud, the guy reciprocating on her available body parts as the pair connected deeper. She asked permission to blow him in an unintentionally hilarious moment, I just wish this kind of humor was more pervasive throughout the movie as it gave it some replay value. Claudia was a fine cock sucker and he throatfucked her readily, the knob slobbing proving she was well versed in the oral arts and ready to rumble during some penetrative pounding from what I could tell. Mick got some oral on her too but she was a net giver here, the spanking turning her on as she prepared to take him vaginally. I want to see more of the hotty in the future but her one big drawback was how passive she was during the screwing part of the scene, limiting replay value substantially even if she proved to be great eye candy. Mick ended the scene by rubbing out a moderate amount of spew on her kisser, some swallowing provided to help compensate for the weaker aspects of the scene.
Scene Six: Julia Ann, the beauty featured on the front cover, was up last as she took dancing lessons with Marco Banderas in the expansive living room. As one of the main reasons I selected this title, I found her to be more appealing than when she was so limited at her previous places of employment, her personal chemistry with the guy elevated by means of her playful demeanor that was so common throughout her performance. The music stopped after they began getting frisky, Julia wanting more than a few dancing lessons from Marco after she felt his growing rod press against her. Julia is a great sword swallower and she attentively inhaled his cock in her mouth, making it wet but also seducing him orally before the couple boned like bunnies. This was an active vaginal ride for both of them too, Julia pushing back to meet his thrusts and Marco driven to provide her with the seed she so desired. Julia gyrated her hips when on top of him and diddled herself to an orgasm as well, Marco busting a nut in her mouth after she milked him dry (a combination blowjob with some hand to gland combat). Sweet!
Summary: Mother Load 4 by director Mike Quasar for Zero Tolerance had some ups and downs to speak of with the ins and outs serving to merit a rating of Recommended or better depending on how much you like the cast as a whole. Julia Ann and Kylie Ireland were exceptionally awesome with Phyllisha Anne coming in a strong third but Claudia and Jaycie had some potential that could be exploited in future releases too. In short, Mother Load 4 delivered at least as much as fuck for the buck as director Mike Quasar could get from the gals, his technical aspects nicely played out and the strip tease extra adding some value for fans so check it out if you like MILF movies as much as I do.
