Date of Production: 1/4/2009
Extras: Setting the trend yet again, the discs had their own unique extras, the first one with a 12:08 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by the talented Tony Flush; the man interviewing the ladies as they got ready for their scenes but also catching them in various states of undress but Nikki DD was kind of quiet this time. There were three trailers, a popshot recap, a photogallery, websites, and a cast list too. The second disc had similar extras, including a longer BTS lasting 35:18 minutes, all the other extras, as well as three more trailers to shows like Oil Overload 2, Internal Damnation 2, Pretty As They Cum, Dirty Rotten Mother Fuckers 2, Oil Overload, The Interactive Gina Lynn, Squirt Machines.

Audio/Video Quality: Crazy 4 Cougars was presented in an appealingly clear 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Chris Streams for Jules Jordan Video as presented in the MPEG-2 format so common to standard definition titles (with 480i resolution). The lighting was consistently solid, generally limiting the grain and other visual flaws in the open settings of the house, no scenes going far outside the box in terms of centering on dark rooms this time. The composition of the shots was largely enhancing to the ladies though as they diddled themselves or took on Chris in POV fashion. There were no compression artifacts (the bitrate hovering in the 4.9 Mbps range most of the time I paid any attention to it) but the fleshtones were not always what I expected them to be, making this one visually decent for me and not the best I've seen from Chris in the past. I will note that as Chris jumped in to do the women, his camerawork suffered somewhat, adding in some grain, color saturation, and soft focus moments but elevating the raw energy at times as well. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) was a bit more basic with no separation or major dynamic range but I could always hear what was said and the music didn't interfere with my viewing pleasure. The music dominated during the tease sequences and fans may find this a marked change for the director from most of his works to date.

Body of Review: Chris Streams is a fine example of a director that showed his game greatly elevated as a result of hooking up with Jules Jordan Video. Not to detract from his previous employers but how often was he allowed to make dual disc sets, select his own cast members, and engage in direct quality control over all aspects of his releases before owning his own titles? Even a cursory look at his pre and post JJV titles will answer the question for you, a great many reviewers from all major sources seemingly in agreement over the matter. Well, hit latest title is for those of you that like POV titles as much as MILFs in Crazy 4 Cougars: Special Edition. Before I get too far, it seems fitting to point out that the use of the term "cougar" is a misnomer since Chris is not younger than all the ladies, and even then, not that much younger since the term refers to older women prowling on (much) younger men or women, but that fact aside, he has once again assembled a first rate cast that I'd be tapping myself if I had the spare dough. When you see names like Shayla "Gumdrop" LaVeaux, Lisa Ann, and Brittany O'Connell (to name a few), you know you're in store for a treat, the eight (yes, I said 8!) scenes all helmed by the director as he nails them as best he could. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Janet Mason, the curvy redhead seen on the lower left hand corner of the front cover, was up first as she caressed herself while wearing minimal black lingerie in the living room. She verbally coaxed Chris Streams to determine if he liked what he saw, his response to her indicating an affirmation of his desire (to "just bite it" referring to her fleshy ass). Like the others in the cast, Chris included, she had some mileage on her body but that did not negatively impact her appeal, Chris snacking on her ass crack even before she bent over in the chair to accentuate it. Janet seemed stoked that he'd want her too, knowing full well the guy has access to all the hotties in the industry on a daily basis, rewarding him with a seductive blowjob that displayed her skills very nicely. Her pretty eyes kept eye contact with him and it was evident that her experiences enhanced her abilities in a number of subtle ways too, her teasing nature coming to the forefront several times before they vaginally screwed like hungry animals (even the handjob and titty fuck well worth checking out). There was also some foot fetish to go along with the oral and vaginal screwing, Janet impaling herself on his rod faster than the camera could keep in focus, resulting in Chris rubbing out a large load of genetic juice as she spoke encouraging words. Nice!
Scene Two: Raquel Devine, the sexy brunette seen on the middle of the right side of the cover, was up next when the previous scene ended at the 50 minute mark. She wore a loose fitting dress that did little to hide her curves from Chris Streams, her tease and solo work getting him ready to jump her bones. She moved about the living room and he went down on her, her extensive dirty talk a nice addition to the scene ("put your cock in my mouth..."), Raquel devoting some time to working his balls. She took charge of impaling herself on his rod too, giving a short titty fuck before working him to the bone during her verbal tirade. This scene was not nearly as long as the last one but she packed a punch I won't soon forget. The ending was the same as she got on her hands & knees for him to target with his rod, the population pudding plowing out of him to give her the desired facial. Yum!
Scene Three: Shy Love, the attractive brunette seen on the middle of the left hand side of the cover, was up next with Chris Streams, this being the first time in memory that the gal was advertised as older (MILF/cougar). I have never had that impression before and frankly, the phrase "I'd hit it" came to mind but I liked the gals more properly classified as older too. She took charge of him and he was in love with her ass, the picture getting grainier than any of the other scenes as a result. Shy was anything but shy as she teased him in front of the picture window too, her clothing slowly removed as she gave him an extensive view of what he would be getting access to in their scene. The black stretch pants hugged her and he gave her a few licks, soon returning for more as he worked her over. Shy enjoyed his oral attempts and they seemed to have more chemistry together than the others (to be fair, Chris had at least some chemistry with all the ladies, certainly a rarity in a gonzo flick), the gal reciprocating by giving him a sweet blowjob. Shy milked him for all he was worth and the two then switched to vaginal screwing, Shy pushing back to meet his thrusts handily. While she might have gone slightly overboard in terms of her grunts, groans, and facial expressions, she also appeared to display a need for seed too, elevating the dynamic of the day. That she also allowed him to fuck her tight ass was a treat too, bouncing on his rod anally nearly as rapidly as she did otherwise, some ATM leading to a second round before he doused her face with spew. Yow!
Scene Four: Holly Halston, the busty blond seen on the upper middle of the front cover, was up last on the first disc as she pranced around in her metallic gold outfit. She looked much like some of the aging cheerleaders I've seen in Texas that many consider "just past their prime" but she displayed a sense of intensity I found appealing too. She wanted to taste his cock and to that end she masturbated during the tease, calling out for him as she warmed up with plenty of eye contact. A few experience lines on her face did not detract from the likelihood that she would get a good fuck from Chris Streams, the guy directing his latest conquest only slightly as she had a knack for knowing what to do, how to do it, and when to apply her charms to full effect. They both did plenty of oral here and she seemed to recognize his love of titty fucks by taking her time to incorporate this into her act, her concentration on his needs a lovely sight to see. Like the others, she was an active rider of cock, her fleshy ass rippling delightfully as she bounced on his penis inside of her. Holly arched her back in such a way as to make herself even tighter, the varied positions proving she preferred concentrating on getting boned over giving head even if she was talented in each act. The scene ended with him dropping his wad of semen to her face; the first disc a winner all by itself! Yes!
Scene Five: Sienna West, the well respected performer seen on the lower right hand corner of the cover, was up next as the first scene on the second disc. By this point, it was clear that she would be working with Chris Streams and he had proven himself with distinction as capable of handling her just fine. Sienna was big on showing off her titties and other body parts, her firm ass standing out as a reminder of her fitness level. The skimpy lingerie she wore enhanced rather than covered her physique, the gal emphasizing her curves by playfully teasing on the stairs. I'll be the first to admit that her face has never done much for me other than her thick DSLs but the disheveled look she gave here actually worked more than usual, helping her project an air of wantonness that cougars are known for. Her biscuit was clean shaven (which was almost a standard here) and he followed her upstairs, her solo act enticing him to go down on her at great length, her cries of pleasure overdone but leading to her proving to be worthy of inclusion here thanks to her blowjob, hand to gland, and titty fuck skills. Her active vaginal riding abilities were decent too, only her eye contact occasionally suffering a bit. The vaginal fucking ended up in the usual facial, Sienna earning her "stream" of semen from the director the old fashioned way.
Scene Six: Shayla LaVeaux, the light haired lady gracing the center stage of the cover, was up next and any fan of the late Jim Holliday will remember how much he adored her work (for good reason). Her throaty voice, superior skills, and outgoing personality all combined to make her latest comeback worthy of the leading spot in the movie according to Chris Streams. She masturbated in her pink & black bikini underwear, verbally coming onto the director as she slowly moved around, the intended effect clear from my point of view. She whispered her vocals initially, stripping the clothing off and caressing her body to enhance the effect she had on him. Chris held out for as long as he could but he wanted to go down on her, especially when she bent over in the chair, and was soon rewarded by her own version of orally hiding the salami. The cock was larger than she is currently used to but she pushed through to provide an active ride here too, tasting her own juices off his pecker and giving him what most younger performers lack; a sense of appreciation and desire. He pounded her and she invited him to go deeper, some hip squeezing and PC muscle development draining him dry for the ending facial. While Shayla did not do anal, she didn't have to given the strength of her work here, a fact most of the others shared as well. Sweet!
Scene Seven: Lisa Ann, the beautiful brunette spotted on the upper left hand corner of the cover, was up next and anyone in the industry unfamiliar with her recent boost in popularity thanks to her role in "Who's Nailin' Paylin" must have been living under a rock. Lisa has never been a "one trick pony" though, her experience, physical attractiveness, and personality in her scenes long established as top notch (you betcha!). She teased with a smile and Chris Streams spoke less than usual, indicating his awe at what he was about to receive. Lisa knew how to best play his adoration too, her heart shaped ass invoking his appreciation as much as any other part of her. The effect of her body parts on the glass table was such that even I wanted to drop her hard but I'm unabashedly a fan of hers too. They both gave each other head but frankly, she was far more involved in the process than he ever was, the foreplay enough to milk him dry (Lisa has long been a wonderful titty fuck from what I've seen). The active vaginal riding was down mostly in doggy and cowgirl variations thanks to the POV nature of the camerawork but if any of the gals showed an ability to stand out as top notch, Lisa certainly ranked on top or tie. The ending stream of semen was plentiful too, Lisa unable to get enough of it to taste as the pair laughed at her temporary blindness. Wow!
Scene Eight: Brittany O'Connell, the bodacious booty babe seen on the upper right hand corner, was up last, her flaming red hair and black lingerie making her strikingly appealing. I have long appreciated fishnet stockings on women and these looked good on her despite causing some minor pattern noise, the gal a bit less enthusiastic than Lisa but possessing a charm of her own. Her heart shaped ass aside, the powerful legs and sweet little cookie she owned were enough to draw Chris Streams in to provide some early oral, her understated moans a refreshing respite from those who overdid the vocals. Her tease continued though and he went back to eat her a few times, her own oral showing her as a skilled professional too. The messy deep throating led to a titty fuck but she wanted him inside of her pussy more, her ride as solid as any of the others in terms of energy and passion. There was some taste testing but ultimately, it ended as the others did, a healthy stream of semen landing on her face (and despite what a few have said online, it looked like real jizz to me).
Summary: Crazy 4 Cougars by director Chris Streams for Jules Jordan Video had enough fuck for the buck, strokability, replay value, and quality casting of chemistry filled hotties that I rated it as Highly Recommended. The technical values were a bit less than his best work and the concept of cougars not quite applicable but I appreciate that "Crazy 4 MILFs" might not have as much name recognition value and focused on the positive aspects of a very heated set of eight pairings. No scene let me down and all of the ladies appeared to be in good spirits, the extras package adding some fun too. In short, I found Crazy 4 Cougars: Special Edition to merit more attention than the multitude of like minded titles you will find populating your favorite porn store's shelves so give it a look and let me know what you think.
