"Please don't let Daddy know" is the line that ends most of the scenes in this DVD pairing late-teen girls and thirtysomething friends-of-fathers. Tall, gangly, shambling performer Mark Wood, who draws from deep in my moviegoing memory the image of Ali MacGraw's dufus jock brother in "Goodbye, Columbus," is also the brains behind this sixth effort in the series. The scenarios are thin and the acting is thinner, but the girls are all fresh, cute and up for action.
Scene 1. DVD box cover girl Eden Adams, wearing shorts, athletic knee socks and high heels (!), comes to see her dad at work and waits for him in co-worker Mark Wood's office. Mark tells her that her dad isn't around but had asked him to drive her home. Cut to Eden lying in her bed, talking to her stuffed animals. In pops Mark - what's he doing in her bedroom? - to start feeling her up. Little resistance is put up by the blonde babe.
Scene 2. Driving around the San Fernando Valley, Alex Gonz and his unseen pal behind the wheel spot a girl at a bus stop and offer her a ride. The giggly, auburn-haired Cameron Love (who, like Eden Adams, is also sporting white knee-highs to indicate "child") gets in a little reluctantly, but soon agrees to go to Alex's place to get something to eat. Something like a man-sicle.

Scene 3.Chris Charming (a disturbing look-alike of desiccated Judas Priest singer Rob Halford) approaches shaggy blonde Monica Ashley in a parking lot. She asks him to buy her some booze cuz she's underage. Instead, according to logic that exists only in porn and some Godard movies, he takes her to his place, where her clothes quickly come off, revealing a very nice rear end and natural tits.
Scene 4. Immigrant Steven French is kicking around a soccer ball (he must be foreign -- no American can do the things he does with his feet and a ball) and blonde, pig-tailed Holly Fox is sitting on the grass and watching in amazement. Steven approaches and offers to give her some kicking tips. Naturally, these lessons occur in his bedroom and the only balls being played with are in his wrinkle bag.
Scene 5. Quirky Julie Ellis wanders through a park and plants herself on a picnic table, where she takes some pics of herself on her cell and reads a book. Mark Wood, a friend of Julie's father, happens to be strolling through this same vast park of emptiness and scolds the girl for playing hooky. He insists on taking her home - to his home, that is. Young brainiac Julie seems genuinely nervous about what is about to take place, and of all the girls in this show, she would seem to be the least likely to be the sole anal performer. But she pulls it off nicely.
Red Light District's DVD is typical of the label's solid offerings, in both the content and the presentation, even if the disc's performance is a bit dodgy. The live-action main menu offers Play Movie, Scene Selection and Special Features. The scene menu is also full motion and lists all the performers in the scene. Every scene is presented in 16x9 widescreen.
A 26-minute behind-the-scenes bonus consists of interviews with four of the girls by director Mark Wood and co-camera operator (and 1990s performer Francesca Le). College student Holly Fox happily admits to having been an ugly duckling who never had a boyfriend; wild girl Julie Ellis says she did some porn back in Pennsylvania, has an Oscar Wilde quotation tattooed on her arm, and loves Kurt Vonnegut and "The Big Lebowski"; Monica Ashley, who boasts, "I suck a mean cock," says this is her first porn scene; Eden Adams reveals she has wanted to be a porn star since finding her parents' stash of dirty DVDs under their bed. My advice is to watch this nonexplicit featurette before the movie in order to get a feel of the girls as real people; seeing them subsequently go hardcore will be all the more thrilling.
Also included are two trailers (for "Sexual Rage 2" and "Assault That Ass 12," both films much rougher than the feature here), plus a cum shot recap, photo gallery and web site access.
THE LAST WORD
Hot, not overly familiar girls with natural boobs and great butts make this a fine disc that will have viewers making repeat visits. As with several Red Light titles I've seen, the disc is a little balky in parts (freeze-ups, general slowness to respond to remote commands), but when it works, it's worth it. Except for one anal scene at the end, the sex is pretty standard and is strictly of the one-guy-one-girl variety, but again, the girls make it worthwhile.
