Extras: The only extra I cared for was the 24:09 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Al Dorado that showed what was going on behind the scenes of making the movie (even Erica taking a more active role, beginning the show by getting made up herself). It jumped around a bit and it was clear that being brand new to porn was not a requirement but there was an effort here to get lesser known newcomers (and I appreciated it too!). There was also a 5 minute long look at how the series began in the first place, a short documentary seen previously in some volumes of the series, starring Clive McLean. There were also trailers for Hustler titles, a slide show, and some spam with the cover sporting a second side that displayed related titles in the series.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Barely Legal #90 was presented in a fetching 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color by director Erica McLean for Hustler Video using the MPEG-2 codec; the 480 resolution standard for the regular version of the movie. My knowledge of the high definition version of the title allows me to compare the two; this one lacked the better resolution and purity of fleshtones the other version had, the bitrate often hovering around 5.1 Mbps area compared to three times (or more) that in the HD version. I saw no macro-blocking or other issues that pop up; thanks in no small part to the proper lighting applied here. The summation of the visuals is that they made the show look decent, my sole complaint being that the composition of the camera angles and editing, while good, did not seem to be the best way to enhance the looks of some of the ladies. The gals were all generically lean and youthful as the series promotes but minor flaws and blemishes did not seem to be handled as well as some of the older volumes in the series, relatively minor quibbles considering how much more resolution the new format offered up for my inspection. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English using a 192 Kbps bitrate with a 48 kHz sampling rate. The vocals on the scenes were flat and even in most cases, the voice-overs sounding somewhat warmer in tone, and the minimal music seemed to come from the stock library used for years by the series.  Generally though, the vocals were clear in their limited use, be it the narration of the scenes or during the vignettes.

Body of Review: Erica McLean is best known to many people as a director for Hustler Video, having stepped into the mighty big shoes of her husband to helm the ever popular "Barely Legal" series after a myriad of others simply did not work out. Using the approach Clive applied to the show, she sticks to limited setups and youthful ladies, rarely deviating from the formula that worked so well in the past when she was his assistant. Her latest volume in the series is Barely Legal 90, the cast including a range of youthful gals but all of the young ladies looking...well, young if not completely lean. One of the most consistent things about the series is that most of the ladies appearing in the vast library of volumes coming out over the years is that they are generally all natural (no implants), easily portray a youthful image (even the ones in their twenties), and see fairly inexperienced. While there were only five scenes in the movie, all of them had some appeal too so if you like newcomer women, you will almost certainly enjoy this one. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Blow Up Your Skirt: Nikki Sky, the brunette seen on the upper left side of the front cover, was up first as she lounged outside reading her magazine, making Jerry feel at home while the guy waited for her father. She kissed him in appreciation for his work for dad, his groping hand finding her juicy pussy as they continued to make out. There wasn't much of a set up and Nikki had all the rough edges of a newcomer you might find working at a local retail outlet but she was cute enough for the show. Her clothing was slowly removed to the generic plucked strings of the music, Jerry servicing her orally as she laughed after she tried slobbing his knob actively. While Nikki had some experience with a strange cock in her mouth, they moved to vaginal screwing quickly, a few positions of her passively riding cock leading to the expected facial. I would have liked more personality by the gal or at least a broader range of her skills in evidence but it was a strokable scene.

Scene Two: Slippin & Slidin: Tanner Mayberry, the cutie seen on the second spot on the left hand side of the cover, took up an offer by Sergio Roho to enjoy his pool with her all natural body. Lacking a bathing suit proved to be no issue at all and she went in without a top, her panties covering her biscuit as she tried the slide. He dried her off and the seductive gal kissed him for assisting her. She then started feeling his pecker and with minimal provocation, began blowing him, slowly trying to work him into a turgid state before he reciprocated. He spent some time going down on her and they banged, another series of modest vaginal poundings leading to a facial of population pudding that hit her face by the time they closed things up (even if most of it hit her upper chest and neck).

Scene Three: Piano Pussy: Stephanie Richards, the skinny brunette featured on the front cover, was up next as she practiced playing the piano, her session interrupted by slacker Dane Cross. She tried to teach him a few moves and he was soon staring at her white panties when she propped herself up on the instrument, his tongue diving deep inside of her along with his fingers. Dane worked her snatch until she aggressively inhaled his dick orally, the oral cut too short for my tastes before she gave what amounted to the most active vaginal ride of the show. While Stephanie looked to be in great pain much of the time, there was also a sense of chemistry between them that did not hurt one bit, had the rest of the scenes been as heated, the rating would have been much better. The facial of genetic juice was minimal and Dane stroked it onto her face without any assistance, her post coital sucking interrupted by her mom calling out to her.

Scene Four: Breakfast Bang: Michelle Brown, the moderately cute brunette seen on the left hand side (second from the bottom), was lounging around in her orange robe as the massively muscled Lee Stone enjoyed a shirtless moment by the hot tub. He was attracted to her and she liked him so he helped massage her into compliance, her small breasts responding to his touch as he nuzzled them. She then blew him and jumped on his cock, making a lot of generic porn noise as she bounced mechanically on his penis. There was no chemistry between them that I could detect but it suited the theme of the day, the cowgirl positions supplementing the others (including a standing bang as Lee is known for) before he jerked out a modest load of sperm into her awaiting mouth.

Scene Five: Collateral Cum: Candi Lynn, the sole blond of the movie as seen on the bottom of the left hand side of the cover, was up last as she made up for her "really late" rent with landlord Anthony Hardwood; the 28 days late rent to be overlooked with a blowjob. She straddled his face and he was soon going down on her, the slutty manner in which the scene got them there so quickly diminishing the theme a bit but her repetitive moans far more annoying. Her short blowjob was hand assisted and proved she knew how to milk a nut, her riding also mechanical but at least active enough that I considered it for a higher rating. The cowgirl and standing vaginal fucking led to him rubbing out a wad to her face, the outdoor setting decent enough if somewhat sterile for me.

Summary: Barely Legal #90 by director Erica McLean for Hustler Video was decent compared to previous volumes in the series, the standard definition version of the movie meriting a rating of Rent It from me just as the better looking high definition Blu-ray made the ladies look substantially better but not enough to rescue the average replay value. In any case, as I am not the biggest fan of newcomers to begin with, your mileage may vary substantially so check it out if you have enjoyed the series to date. In short, Barely Legal #90 was populated with a bunch of old men banging young gals with limited onscreen experience so if that works for you a whole lot, consider picking up a copy for your own hand to gland pleasure. If you seek out youthful ladies having sex with plenty of rough edges (let's face it, they just aren't as polished as more experienced performers), you may well think this is a great title to get and spending the extra money for the high definition version or this still-fetching standard version is not the worse way you could go to upgrade your spank bank collection, it just lacked enough material compared to other titles to stand above the pack.
