The set up for Vena Virago's latest endeavor starts when Page Morgan gets a hold of a fanzine that talks about the life and art of the director. Page becomes obsessed with her work and with rabbits and begins what can only be described as a psychedelic sexual road trip of self discovery and sexual awakening. It's all very odd and it is as much a performance art piece as a porno movie but Virago makes it work as some sort of odd XXX counter culture statement though what exactly it is that she's saying isn't entirely clear.
That said, this one is really easy to enjoy as a quirky and very sexy slice of pop art and taken on that level the movie is a lot of fun. There's a definite sense of humor to all of this and a great sense of style and composition throughout the film that lends it a very unique visual flair which goes a long way towards its success. Equally important, the sex scenes are well shot, well cast, well choreographed and genuinely sexy.
Here's how it all goes down:
Scene 1 - Max Mikita And Jordan Ash: When this scene starts, Max is painting in her room. Jordan comes into the frame and cuffs her with some leather bondage gear around her arms. He yanks her pants down and eats her out from behind and then flips her over for more of the same. Max's head is shaved, but her box is not. She sucks his cock before he fucks her missionary style and then doggy style bent over a table. He lies down and she rides him cowgirl style before sucking him off and then letting him fuck her from behind again. He fucks her missionary style and then doggy style one last time and he pulls out to come all over her ass cheeks to end the scene.

Scene 2 - Adrianna Nicole And Tyler Knight: Adrianna is laying on the couch wearing a leather bunny mask. Tyler comes in with a feather duster and brushes her with it through her underwear. He pulls out and old school vibrator and uses it on her and then he eats her out. She takes the mask off and they sixty-nine before he fucks her from behind, and then she puts on a leather collar and a mask that hides her eyes and gives him head. He gets her back and all fours and fucks her up the ass while she fingers herself and uses the vibrator on herself, and they do this from a few different angles before he pulls out and lets her finish him in her mouth.
Scene 3 - Page Morgan And Alex Gonz: Pretty blonde Page is in a gallery with Alex when the mood strikes. They kiss and he eats her out to get her primed. She gives him head and then rides him cowgirl style and then she rolls over and takes it from behind while lying on her side. She rides him reverse cowgirl style for a bit and then he fucks her missionary style, after which he pulls out and cums onto her tits.
Scene 4 - Poppy Roxx And Varla Vex: This scene starts with Poppy pouring some hot wax on bound Varla's breasts and pierced tongue before feeding her some cake. Poppy makes Varla watch her use a vibrator on herself before she moves in and starts fingering her. Poppy eats Varla out and then fucks her with a carrot dildo which she puts in her mouth. She bends Varla over and spanks her before putting a strap-on and fucking her from behind with it. She fucks her up the ass with the carrot dildo and then the strap-on and then Varla eats Poppy's pussy out until she cums and they kiss to end the scene.
Scene 5 - Marie Luv And Dino Bravo: Marie and Dino start off by kissing in her room. They move to the couch, she undresses, and he likes her shaved snatch. She gives him a blowjob and then rides him cowgirl style as psychedelic green screen effects swirl around them. She gets down on all fours and he fucks her from behind while she uses a vibrating wand on herself and then they flip over for more of the same from tried but true missionary position. Dino shifts gears on her and starts fucking her ass, first missionary style, then doggy style, then reverse cowgirl style and then finally missionary style again. He pulls out and comes into her mouth to finish the scene and the movie.
Honey Bunny is presented in a nice 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen transfer that effectively portrays the gritty, dirty look of the world where the movie is supposed to take place. The colors have been intentionally muted in much of the film so don't expect it to pop off the screen at you, it's all rather dreary looking but again, this works in the context of the movie. There aren't any problems with compression artifacts or edge enhancement which is nice and as drab as the picture can be, at least its clean and well authored.
The English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo track here is very good. The dialogue is easy enough to follow and the soundtrack is mixed in very nicely. A 5.l track might have added some more atmosphere but the 2.0 track that is here is well balanced and of nice clarity and quality.
The biggest extra on this release is a Behind The Scenes (12:50) featurette that takes a look at the production while it was being shot. We see some of the performers blocking their scenes and acting out dialogue bits in front of a green screen and we get to see director Vena Virago doing her thing. We see characters relaxing behind the set and we see some of the girls getting their make up applied before their scenes start. We also get a look at some of the pre-production art and some of the editing. Eon McKai and Winkytiki pop up at one point as well.
Rounding out the extra features are trailers for a few other Vivid Alt productions, a video art gallery, a still photo gallery, animated menus and chapter selection.
Honey Bunny is a candy coated whirlwind of sex and surrealism. It's an interesting film that won't be for all tastes but those who don't mind some eclectic visuals with their gynecological close ups ought to give it a look, just for something different. Recommended.
