Genre: Vignette, Youthful Ladies

Director: Erica McLean

Laci Laine and Kevin Doyle

Lina Le and Jake Steed

Extras: The only extra I cared for was the 12:57 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Erica and Scott Butler that showed what was going on behind the scenes of making the movie (limited to Nikki in makeup and Alicia playing with some dogs but largely confined to interviews with a few of the ladies). 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.

Audio/Video Quality: Barely Legal 91 was presented in a fetching 1.78:1 widescreen color by director Erica McLean for Hustler Video using the AVC codec; a standard on Blu-Ray discs; the standard definition version in MPEG-2 with the usual 480i resolution compared to the 1080i resolution of the high definition version, partially made up for by the SD's anamorphic nature). My knowledge of the SD version of the title allows me to compare the two; it lacked the better resolution and purity of fleshtones this version had, the bitrate often hovering around 18.7 Mbps area compared to less than a third that in the SD version which seemed to hover around the 4.2 Mbps mark. The use of video bothers some folks but it suited the nature of the show far more than film would have and the contrasts were all enhanced by the high definition approach. There were no obvious compression artifacts, no grain to speak of, and even in the final scene at night, 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 better than ever, 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 224 Kbps bitrate at 48 kHz in the Blu-ray version but the bitrate was a mere 192 Kbps in the SD version (very little difference). The vocals on the scenes were flat and even in most cases, the voice-overs sounding somewhat warmer in tone and always easier to hear, and the minimal music seemed to come from the stock library used for years by the series. In terms of upgrades then, the visuals got the largest boost by a wide margin with the aural capabilities once again cleaned up but only slightly (and in the BTS, I could barely hear the gals speak on occasion).

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 91 (Blu-ray) and SD, 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. I have a mixed response to such titles and want to keep my biases out in the open though, either version of this title suited for those of you that are into young hotties with limited performance skills. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Exercise Cock: Nikki Sexton, the lean gal spotted on the upper right hand corner of the front cover, was up first as she snuck up on Commando who was ready to ride the exercise bike located in the bedroom. The gal had other ideas as to how to get an aerobic workout and the pair were soon going at one another quite readily. The audio was poor initially and the narration was much louder than the banter the two engaged in, some lame music added in when she stripped to her birthday suit and dragged him into bed with her. She blew him with practiced ease and while the chemistry between them was minimal, at least she had a lot of obvious experience wrapping her kips around a penis. She was an active cock rider vaginally too, some taste testing added in since he was unwilling to go down on her, the wad of genetic juice landing in her mouth as she orally milked him dry.

Scene Two: Ride This: Eva Ellington, the cute brunette seen on the bottom right hand corner of the cover, was up next as a gal that loved riding on motorcycles, especially the one owned by aging lothario Joey Ray. His cholo wannabe look and ever expanding tattoos marked him as a guy trying to look half his age, Eva on the prowl for some well aged man meat as she grabbed his package through his jeans. He played with her erect nipples and she lowered her pink dress to reveal an all natural body, her hand to gland action incorporated into the blowjob as she got him erect. I liked her no hands approach better and while she was not the most talented gal of the movie, at least she displayed some enthusiasm for the task at hand (or is that "at mouth"?). Joey did most of the penetrative work this time and also did not go down on her, weakening the result for me regardless of how many positions they boned in. The ending wad of population pudding landed on her face as he rubbed it out and held her head, his creepy arm tattoo of a face killing it for me (ewwww).

Scene Three: Practice Makes Perfect: Laci Laine, a very attractive gal with light hair (she was the second gal from the top on the right hand side), was up next as she read a porn magazine on an easy chair outside while Kevin Doyle encouraged her. Of all the ladies in the cast, Laci looked the most worth fucking, reminding me a bit of a younger Sunny Lane. She took to blowing him readily and he pumped his penis into her mouth, his muscles looking more like a cross over male than anything else though he gave some head too. Laci was an active rider too, impaling herself on cock in any position he wanted her, his reluctance to go down on her sad but inevitable given the lack of such action in the series most times. The load of spew that was then jerked off to her face was minimal but she provided some post coital sucking and seemed to like the guy, their personal chemistry pretty decent (a high point of the volume).

Scene Four: Valet Vixen: Lina Le, the lean Asian chick on the right hand side of the cover (second from the bottom), was up next lamenting how her father did not leave her any money to understanding Jarrod Steed. Like most of the barely known men in the volume, he was a net receiver of head, happy to receive but not so keen on giving much up. The camera seemed to show more angles during Lina's blowjob too, almost as if someone else picked up the camera and knew what they were doing. The lighting was better too and her playful oral, while not in the same league as Laci's scene, was well done. Thankfully, he did go down on her for at least a minimal amount and the limitation here was how passive she was during the boning, her reddened pussy rarely showing her putting any effort into the act. She was better when located on top of him but she looked off camera as if distracted, perhaps at a clock given her penetrative performance. The scene closed up with her tugging on his nuts as he rubbed out a lot to satisfy the valet, making it clear that this was a good tip.

Scene Five: Payment Plan: Alicia Tease, the cute brunette featured on the front cover's left hand side was up last as she bemoaned her lack of music when the stereo did not work. She hired repairman Derrick Pierce to fix it but lacked the $250 needed to cover his expenses, leading to the usual porno deal where he could have her and they would call it even. He joined her on the brown living room couch and they began to kiss, her already sopping wet pussy juiced up from the way she rubbed it as she watched him at work. The kissing led to her slobbing his knob too, her playful mouth showing him what she was made of before he did a better job of going down on her bent over body. The pair then screwed vaginally and she made a lot of repetitive moans, showing she had some potential if not demonstrating it completely on the day this was shot. Alicia was better on top of him and he rubbed out the nut to her mouth, her post coital sucking making it a decent scene in terms of replay value.

Summary: Barely Legal 91 Blu-ray 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 for me. 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 91 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 the 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.
