Cast: Teagan Presley, Lindsey Meadows, Michael Stefano, Paola Rey, Marie Luv, Marco Banderas, Anna Nikova, Mick Blue, Sarah Wild, James Deen, Vanessa Gold, Stacey Shine
Length: 149:30 minutes
Date of Production: 5/10/2008
Extras: The best extra was the 11:30 minutes of solo tease action by four of the ladies, notably missing Teagan. This kind of thing is always appreciated (well, not the missing gals of course) and the allure of their facial expressions sure helped "sell" a few of them in terms of enhancing their full scene during the movie. There was also a photogallery, a pop shot recap, and some trailers, the true double sided DVD cover and slipcase nicely done.
Audio/Video Quality: Piece of Ass 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 modest here, not completely eliminating the shadows and grain like most of Mike's recent works of late, with enough variation to add some texture in a few of the six scenes but in need of polishing up as far as I was concerned. 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 not 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 4.3 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it. 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 sole 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 (there was no secondary track in Spanish this time thankfully enough). 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 something of a powerhouse gonzo production company for years now, initially sticking with a strict set of rules and then loosening them up a bit to ensure access to top talent. Since the company's inception, director Mike Quasar has been their biggest asset in terms of production skill and know-how, assisting most of his peers there in the art of making strokable pornography using his caustic wit and sense of self deprecation so many associate with the guy. Mike's latest fuck flick is not a pirate show or story about angels but a straightforward gonzo that is devoid of fast forward fodder called Piece of Ass. If that is not truth in advertising for a porno, what is? Seriously though, most of the scenes included anal sex and with a great cast led by hotty Teagan Presley (before she went on her "no man" sabbatical), I was sure it should merit a lot of positive nods. The back cover said it like this: "Grab a seat and prepare to dig into some of the sweetest servings of ass in XXX. These perfectly shaped pieces of booty are true works of art, as the camera frames their fine forms. Not only do these sexy sluts saunter their slutty asses but they fuck like frenzied fertile rabbits! They suck and fuck cock with a hunger and passion never before seen. You can lick their asses, fuck their pussies and blow your load on them- and they'll beg you for more! Piece of Ass...as good as Ass gets!" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Teagan Presley, the skinny young hotty featured on the front cover, was up first with slightly curvier Lindsey Meadows, as the pair made out on the expansive staircase in their slutty attire. Teagan did some heel sucking and was very playful, Lindsey kind of going along with her as the couple made out until Michael Stefano arrived to provide the meat stick both of them deserved. Teagan took a glass dildo in her ass first then cleaned it orally, Michael's arrival signifying it was time for some foot fetish material to ensue. The use of feet did nothing for me either way, Teagan left to diddle herself while Lindsey made a play for the cock but our heroine soon slobbed his knob very nicely with some assistance from Lindsey until both gals gave passive vaginal rides on the boner he sported. Michael wanted more so he began drilling Teagan's ass, this continuing until some ATM and a technical DP drained his snake of genetic juice that went to Teagan's face for cumswapping. I admit that I was underwhelmed with the performance since it had such potential (the playfulness displayed by Teagan alone served to elevate my bulge) but with so few new Teagan performances with men out there, this might be a sign of the times.
Scene Two: Paola Rey, a sexy Latina and light skinned cutie Marie Luv, were up next by the second floor railing as they licked and played with each other, their minimal attire barely covering them until they walked over to the bedroom to jump on muscular Marco Banderas. The gals ate box and used a single dildo but were much happier with a live meat puppet, caressing the Latino stud all over before they sucked him off seductively. If this was not the perfect advertisement for his Calvin Klein underwear, nothing was as the gals slobbed his knob so effectively. Like the last scene, there was no personal chemistry observed but at least the gals used a lot of energy during their act (Paola seemed to like Marco more than Marie did). In any case, they fucked vaginally with taste testing and soon moved to a diminished anal, some active riding taking place but not as heated as I've seen any of the trio do in the past. The ladies would assist with each other and gave okay performances but the lack of passion limited the replay value for me. The scene finished up when Marco rubbed out a wad of population pudding to their mouths for sharing, a lengthy kiss between the gals serving to show them well enough.
Scene Three: Anna Nikova, a curvy brunette with large breasts, was up next in the bedroom with Mick Blue, the lack of build up or tease a surprising change of pace given how many fans demand it these days. Mick loved her tits and spent considerable time playing with them too, licking her asshole until he stripped off his own clothing for her to start giving pleasure. Anna worked his cock like a professional, watching the camera as she bobbed up and down on it, stroking the shaft as licking the balls. Mick gave some whispered instructions from off camera in that regard too, leading to the couple fucking vaginally and anally in a few positions. Anna was largely passive during the penetrative portion of the show and her titty fuck was probably on par with her decent blowjob as being superior, the need for a "C-light" making me wonder if Mike was really at the helm this time (the thought crossed my mind earlier too). The scene ended with a wad of spew milked from Mick's balls to her tits, a few licks not making up for her passive performance.
Scene Four: Sarah Wild, a sexy blond with a wonderfully appealing body, was up next by the railing of what looked to be an apartment complex, the blond bending over upon meeting James Deen so he could suck her ass. She moaned softly with pleasure and he was erect even before he began spanking her fleshy cheeks, her ass used to rub him the right way in between his oral servitude, the guy's cock soon pounding away at her pussy as she pushed back. The pair shared the first real chemistry of the movie in that sense, some vaginal screwing leading to her blowing him soundly with an abrupt edit bringing them back to a generic bed where they fucked some more. This setting seemed less of a turn on to Sarah and James did most of the work there, her ass soon penetrated after he got the hint (she kept fingering herself and spreading her ass apart). This greatly slowed both of them down and she seemed to be putting up with it more than anything else, James eventually jerking off to her open anal gape.
Scene Five: Vanessa Gold, a frisky gal with mixed color hair, was up next and also not in the mood to tease, climbing into bed with her panties flung aside so she could appreciate the manlihood of Mick Blue. He gave her some rubs and she reciprocated by aggressively blowing him, Mick licking her ass as soon as he could but only briefly before he pounded her passive pussy. I wasn't a fan of her implants but she was displaying erect nipples as he hammered away at her pussy and ass, the gal rubbing her clitoris if not giving me the show I was hoping for. After several positions total, Mick jerked off to her ass cheeks but it was the weakest scene of the show by far, any potential she may have not provided this time.
Scene Six: Stacey Shine, a cute brunette that reminded me of a stripper, was up last with Mick Blue; the gal wearing a white and blue top with matching muff buffer skirt was another that dispensed with the tease here. The pair were on each other like white on rice, Stacy dropping to her knees to give him some head while looking up at him in submissive fashion. While her skills were not as polished as many of the others, she brought some charm to the proceeding too, savoring the cock rather than just going through the motions mechanically. That alone elevated the quality of the production in my book, the technical considerations less prominent to my eye here and reminding me of the director I've appreciated for years. Stacy's standing hummer was a nice way to look at her sweet ass too, her moderately active ride restoring my faith in all three members of the scene (the two fucking and director Mike for shooting it better). In a surprise move, there was no anal here and despite what some may claim was implied by the advertising, a "piece of ass" does not mean anal sex. That said, Stacey had a lot of untapped potential but was fun to watch, receiving the final facial in her mouth. Yum!
Summary: Piece of Ass by director Mike Quasar for Zero Tolerance was not even close to his better works in recent years and I admit that I found it rushed with minimal heat in most scenes. The strokability was okay though so while I might not use it as spank bank material, it had enough moments to merit a Rent It. Part of me wonders why there was no BTS footage here but the rest of me figures that was because it might solve the mystery of what went wrong, the technical aspects of the show about as low end as I've seen from the director in years (the last time it was this bad, someone had placed his name on the cover as director when he was hardly involved at all with the movie IIRC). In any case, fans of Teagan Presley might want Piece of Ass for their collection based strictly on her appearance, weak or not, there might not be a lot more for awhile.
