All Dressed Up
The animated credits
Director: B. Skow
Cast: Monique Alexander, Voodoo, Eva Angelina, James Deen, Roxy DeVille, Marco Banderas, Sunny Lane, Alex Gonz
Length: 162:40 minutes
Date of Production: 3/17/2008
Extras: The 39:20 minutes of bonus scenes will prove to be the best extras, the five appearing to be edited from their original forms. I included detailed descriptions of most of them below for those who care. I actually prefer extras unique to the movie itself though so the 18:04 minute long Behind the Scenes feature was more interesting. Monique Alexander was clearly the most important thing to cameraman Graham Crack Herr (for good reason) but it also showed the cast & crew getting ready. It was a solid mix of material so I enjoyed it more than usual. There was then a biography for Monique Alexander, some trailers, spam, and a photogallery.
Audio/Video Quality: All Dressed Up was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480i resolution. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience outside of porn is superior to many inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as shot in 1080i high definition, though presented in the SD format (for now) using 1080i to provide a lot of resolution supporting some of the effects (making it look more like a real movie than just a porno). The lighting was well handled and this added to the pleasure of watching the gals in play as the lengthy scenes gave them enough freedom to explore their sexuality. The composition of the camera angles and lighting were almost always optimal this time, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible (and the editing by "Harry Crumb" was a decided step up from the last project of Skow's I reviewed). The fleshtones were accurate too and the DVD mastering was well done (if only in a bitrate hovering around 4.5 Mbps), making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality; leaning towards above average. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. For some reason, the levels were about the same as usual but aside from the added background noise, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent.
Body of Review: B. Skow is one of those directors that caught my eye awhile back, showing more than a modicum of technical expertise but even more importantly proving himself able to enhance the performances of those he shoots at Vivid Entertainment. I know he is still something of an unknown element these days but the word is definitely spreading and in time, I suspect he will help the company reclaim its place in the industry. His latest title to make it to me is All Dressed Up, a series of unrelated vignettes focusing on outfits and the gals that wear them, particularly showcasing former contract starlet Monique Alexander in three of the five scenes. For those that care, the uniforms in question were stripper versions of said uniforms but I doubt any straight male will care given the nicely curved bodies cast in the flick. The back cover described the movie like this: "The school girl. The cop. The prisoner. The nurse. The French maid. Everyone has a different fantasy and every one is in uniform...and B Skow is no different. So he took his favorite girls, dressed them to the hilt, and then had them strip slowly and fuck hard. The result is the hottest costume party of all time. And you're invited. (Casual attire, of course.)." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested: Scene One: Monique Alexander, the sexy but lean blond featured on the left side of the front cover, was up first playing a "naughty schoolgirl" with muff buffer skirt, black panties, and thigh high stockings complimenting her all too lean physique. Monique put on a decent tease, the camera spending plenty of time capturing her sweet body parts before she felt herself up and Voodoo came to play with her. Voodoo went down on her and fingered her to a heated state, Monique reciprocating with a skilled blowjob (her hand to gland technique complimenting her oral skills). The pair then vaginally screwed in numerous positions, Monique more passive than I have seen her in awhile. Voodoo's wad of genetic juice was milked out by her tight snatch though, landing on her ass crack.
Scene Two: Eva Angelina, the sexy brunette seen second from the left on the cover, was up next playing a dominatrix wearing a latex outfit that hugged her smoking hot body, the fleshy gal teasing outside in the shaded area of some trees. I especially liked her curvy ass but her tease performance was even better than the last one, the outdoor furniture serving as her platform during the masturbation but Voodoo the lucky servant who got to use some ice on her coochie. He then went down on her and she gave him a sweet hummer in return, the lack of a true D/s scene not bothering me much considering the amount of personal chemistry they had together. Eva was an active rider of cock here, no surprise given the wealth of solid performances she has given over the years, and she maintained control of her sexuality in all its splendor. He way she pushed back on his cock, did PTM, and otherwise got off on the action made it very strokable and enhanced the replay value of the scene substantially, this one of her last scenes before she took a break to have a kid last year if I recall correctly. It ended when he rubbed out a load of population pudding to her tits, a small load but he did as he was ordered and she gave him some post coital sucking as a reward. Yum!
Scene Three: Monique Alexander, this time dressed up as a stripper nurse, was up next as eye candy wearing the slightest of thongs, her outfit matching the one on the cover. The colors were slightly saturated here so the technical values were a bit more off than expected, her ass cheeks quite inviting as she bent over the dining room table. Fans of camel toes will be impressed by her panties too but she seemed to be more into the action this time, perhaps having something for James Deen who she was partnered up with. He went down on her with less enthusiasm but the manner in which she looked into his eyes spoke volumes, clutching her nipples as she savored the moment of his oral attentions. She also showed extra care during her blowjob, his smaller cock working in her favor as she engulfed his rod orally. The blowjob did not last long though as she was clearly turned on and wanting him inside of her, bouncing on the pecker as it dove deep inside of her. The aggressive ride alone was worth watching the movie for and I was half surprised that she did not do anal with him as a result. The scene finished up when he jerked off a wad of spew to her body, the initial stream hitting her mouth and going all along her torso. Whew!
Scene Four: Roxy DeVille, one of my favorite brunettes in all of porn, was up next as a maid, her "shiny and wet" lips enhancing her appeal nearly as much as the panties jacked up her ass crack during the tease. Roxy has a fine behind and knows how much her fans adore it, the rest of her looking pretty tight too. Her coy tease session lasted long enough as she proved worthy of kitchens everywhere, intensely looking at the camera as if conveying a message to the fans back home how much she got off on their beating off to her act. Like the others, she teased into a masturbation sequence that was soon met by her partner, in this case being studly Marco Banderas, going down on her, the guy slobbering all over her before she slobbed his knob with a modicum of passion. Her enthusiasm aside though, there was also some chemistry elevating the scene a touch more than usual, the vaginal screwing in various positions about what I expected of her given her body of work. While Roxy was not as consistently active during the riding, she did taste test him a few times, ending when she swallowed his load of semen.
Scene Five: Sunny Lane, the foxy blond seen on the cover's middle (second from the right side), was up next as a stripper cop, complimenting the prisoner outfit of lean Monique Alexander as the two discussed their roles for the day. The showcase tease added some fun and they appeared to embrace their respective roles, Sunny getting frisky with Monique before sending her inside the house so she (Sunny), could finish her tease. That was when Alex Gonz joined in, Sunny eating Monique as Monique blew Alex, both gals eventually getting to blow him and eat each other though Alex did not engage in a lot of oral here. He saved his energy and enthusiasm for the vaginal pounding he gave both of them, drilling the active riders well as the gals took turns assisting him with the other. While this was not either of the gals' best scenes to date, it was a decent way to end the movie as Alex jerked off to Sunny's crotch and Monique's face.
Bonus Scene: Layout: Hillary Scott, Brooke Haven, Briana Banks, and the mighty Evan Stone, were up next as part of a porn shoot where the ladies were dressed in costumes indicative of the mainstream movie with Evan as a king getting his pipes cleaned after the ladies saved the day. As a spoof on big budget features as seen from the eyes of a writer, it was funny though the sex itself was well done, despite the condom and all that nasty anal sex that took place. Hillary took to cock better than her two pals (who spent some quality time engaged in lesbian antics) but all of the ladies appeared to appreciate some cock in the scene and Briana gave a much better showing this time. Evan popped on all three of them but it sure took him a long time to rub it out this time.
Bonus Scene: The Sunny Experiment: Sunny Leone, the gorgeous brunette featured on the front cover, was up first as she masturbated some of her daily stress away at her desk. The movie started off by establishing that she would introduce each scene and add some playful tease to add value. The red leather chair she was in as her clothing disappeared looked perfect for her and her lean young body beckoned as she seductively teased ever so slowly. Just when I thought she was climaxing, she made a call to an escort service, hotty Monique Alexander coming into the scene dressed as a wayward schoolgirl. The pair showed the kind of chemistry few readily acknowledge takes place between modern contract performers, Sunny's stern mistress routine a total role reversal for her that I liked. Monique was no slacker either as she did a striptease worthy of her skills, my only complaint being I wished she was about twenty pounds heavier. (note: this was a markedly shorter version of the original scene)
Bonus Scene: Scenes From A Cell: They go into this room and Lanny starts to put on a show for them. Obviously as a way to win a favor from Charles so she can be paroled. Austin also strips as she lies back so Lanny can eat her after this kiss and rub a little. Charles eats Lanny as she does this as well. The girls then share his cock for a bit before Lanny gets a meat injection in missionary while she eats Austin. Austin then gets on all fours and gets entered in from behind in doggie. She also gets some in missionary which allows Lanny to straddle her face. They stay in the same position except Charles who goes behind Lanny. After they suck him off some more Lanny climbs on top for some cowgirl action. Austin gets her turn as well in reverse cowgirl as Lanny rides on his face. This is quick as they go into missionary. Lanny then has a go in missionary as well before he and Lanny go into doggie again. Austin then climbs up for a short cowgirl before he pops on her ass. This is a very hot scene.

Bonus Scene: Alphabet: This next scene starts off with Roxy dancing to techno music around her studio. Dressed in a very short plaid skirt and black laced bra, she has fun dancing around and giving herself over to the music as she plays with herself. Roxy being the aggressor goes and gives Evan a hard time about his silver pants and begins to tease him about it. Evan literally picks her up and tosses her on the red table and begins to munch on her getting her primed for his assault. Evan gathers Roxy into his arms for a standing RCG, then brings her to the sofa still impaled on his cock. Roxy stops riding him long enough to give him a BJ. Roxy mounts back up on him for some more RCG, CG and VTM action with some deep throat action. Primed and ready for Evan's anal assault Roxy takes it all in. (review by Ravyn)
Summary: All Dressed Up by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment had a lot of hotty fuck for the buck and fans of Monique Alexander should consider this DVD a "must have" given her performance in the three scenes she was in. Personally, I liked the entire cast of gals, Sunny Lane, Eva Angelina, and Roxy DeVille all very appealing to me for a very long time so I rated this one a Recommended despite the occasional technical issues that arose. In short, All Dressed Up will serve as another notch in the belt of director Skow, his star still rising in the porn industry as he continues his quest to revive Vivid to their former stature with his heated works.
