XCritic's Advice: Watch It Online

The Movie:

Celeste Star reads some letters from Penthouse readers that then lead into poorly acted recreations of those crazy sexual experiences. There isn't really much of a plot, per se, though each scene is set up by Celeste's wooden reading which gives it a context, no matter how flimsy that context might be. Basically, you're going to watch this one to see people fuck, not for the story, so let's get to it:

Scene 1 - Kate Frost, Hef Pounder And Tyler Knight: Kate heads off to a bar where she doesn't know anyone and starts making out with a pair of complete strangers. She spreads her legs so that Hef can eat her out while Tyler gets his cock sucked by the cute blonde minx with the big fake tits. They switch it up a bit and Hef gets head for a while until they decide that it's time for Hef to fuck her from behind while Tyler goes back for more oral. They fuck her for a good while and then Hef takes the condom off and comes into her mouth and Tyler follows suit.

Scene 2 - Faith Leon, RayVeness And Van Damage: Van and RayVeness are riding around in a limousine. He's got his fingers all over her and they make out for a bit. She gives him head and he fingers her and then they stop and pick up Faith (who looks great in a black mini dress and fishnets). Faith and RayVeness go at it for a bit - deep kissing one another and sucking each other's tits - and Van is treated to a nice show. Faith eats Ray out while she strokes Van's dick, and then Ray eats Faith out from behind while she blows Van. Faith leans back with her legs spread so that Rayveness can really get her tongue in there while Van bones Raveness from behind. Ray finishes Van off with a blowjob while Faith rubs her pussy and watches.

Scene 3 - Michelle Malene, Franco Del Toro And Alex Rox: Michelle starts making out with Franco near the pool. They fondle one another and she gives him head while he lies back on a chair. Alex walks into the frame and likes what he sees so he starts jerking off. Franco sucks her pussy and fingers her and she rides him reverse cowgirl style before bending over and getting fucked from behind while down on all fours. Franco comes all over her backside just as Alex comes closer and blows his load all over Michelle's pretty face.

Scene 4 - Katie Morgan, Marcos Leon And Tommy Gunn: Katie's playing pool with the two guys and things heat up when she lets them know she wants some action. They all make out and Marcos eats her from behind while she sucks Tommy's cock. Marcos puts his cock where his tongue once was and fucks her doggy style and then she lies back and lets him have a go at her that way. She rides Marcos cowgirl style, Tommy's cock still half way down her throat, and then Marcos and Tommy switch orifices. Both men pull out and shoot onto her belly to finish the scene.

Scene 5 - Vanessa Lane, Jasmine Byrne And Johnny Castle: Johnny and Vanessa go to a strip club and she winds up finding herself interested in Jasmine. She tips her and gets in the cage with her and they strip and rub up against one another. They suck Johnny's cock and then he eats them out one at a time. The three of them work themselves into a daisy chain and suck each other off and then the girls drop to their knees in front of Johnny and suck him to a big finish.

Scene 6 - Lindsey Meadows, Evan Stone And Chris Cannon: When this scene starts, Evan is sucking Lindsey's neck from behind. He fucks her missionary style and then eats her out while Chris records it all on video. She gives Evan head and then rides him cowgirl style for a bit before getting on her back with her ankles to her ears so that he can really get inside of her. They move into a sixty-nine and then Evan rolls her onto her side and fucks her from that angle. He pulls out and shoots all over the top of her pussy while Chris moves in and jerks off onto her face and into her mouth.

The film is nicely shot though it's intentionally very soft looking and it benefits from some nice production values and very slick lighting and cinematography. Penthouse has gone to some lengths here to create a fantasy world where all of this material plays out and because of that this will probably appeal to couples more so than solo viewers. While the material is certainly hardcore enough, it still feels very safe and more than a little cliché - if you're looking for something different from Penthouse, this won't work for you but if you like their tried and true formula, you'll get exactly what you expect from this release.



Bad Wives is presented in a 1080p MPEG-2 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Like a lot of the Penthouse 'fantasy' titles, this film is shot with a fairly soft look so don't expect the same amount of detail you'd get from other Blu-ray releases as this one is supposed to have a sort of 'dream like' vibe to it.


The sole audio track on this Blu-ray release is a 48 kHz 192 kbps Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo sound mix in English. While it's disappointing to see only a 2.0 mix contained on this release, the quality of it is fine even if it doesn't take advantage of the format. Dialogue is clean and clear and the levels are all properly balanced. There are no problems with hiss or distortion and the score sounds nice.


The main extra on this release is a bonus scene starring Shyla (18:23) that starts off with her and a dude making out in the middle of a field where they just happen to have found a nice bed to fuck on. He eats her out from behind and she sucks his cock before getting down on all fours and letting him fuck her from behind. She rolls over and gets it missionary style and then rides him for a bit before rolling over and letting him fuck her up the ass. They keep the ass fucking up for a bit then he pulls out, puts it between her big fake tits, and blows his load all over her mouth and neck.

Rounding out the extras are a still Penthouse DVD and Blu-ray releases, motion menus, Digital Playground contact info, and scene selection.

Final Thoughts:

The transfer is alright but the lack of an HD audio track is a disappointment. As far as the content itself, it's merely average. A couple of scenes are strong, a couple of them aren't and while this might appeal to couples looking for some 'safe' material, everyone else can consider Bad Wives worthy of a rental.
