Writing a review of Into the Sunset is bittersweet for me. Bitter, because this will be legendary Sunset Thomas' last on-screen fuck. Sweet, because at least she made one more movie for us to enjoy!

Sunset truly is a legend. If you simply consider that she's had a 17 year career on the blue screen, that's enough to consider her to be a superstar. However, if you add in the caliber of the movies in which she's appeared--including Shock, Latex, Hidden Obsessions, and Misty Beethoven--"legendary" doesn't seem quite sufficient of a word to describe her. So, it's really hard to see her go!

Sunset doesn't really want to leave the action either. So, the plot of this, her final movie, revolves around that theme. After her chauffer plants the seed of "one more movie" into her head, Sunset gets the idea that her final scene should be with one of her fans. You see, Sunset loves her fans so much and really wants to honor "all" of us by choosing her boy toy from among us.
Sunset sets her staff of nubile assistants, including Lexi Love, Penny Flame, and Mia Presley to the task of identifying just the right guy--and the right penis--for the job. After posting the opportunity on several on-line discussion boards, the applications literally pour in to Sunset's office. Of course Sunset's three lovely assistants work hard to vet and interview (physically, of course) the most promising candidates. And, Sunset's live-in female lover, Brooke Banner, also gets her share of contestant cock.
Eventually, the girls pick a regular Joe...who happens to be named "Chris." Sunset has her pal Ron Jeremy (the hedgehog!) give Chris a few pointers and then she and Chris get it on. Along the way, Ron Jeremy and Marco Banderas get their cocks enveloped by Sunset's renowned pussy. And, girl toy Roma enjoys the attentions of both Marco and Ron.
Sunset's final scene has good and not-so-good points. She, as always, is a fantastic fuck. However, amateur Chris, the fan who is the object of the entire movie, gets less than his fair share of Sunset's pussy. And, he never gets to pop. I can imagine how hard it must be for an ordinary guy to perform on camera. However, the "Sunset Thomas fan" in me really wanted him to get more out of his encounter with Sunset and her fantastic body.
Otherwise, Into the Sunset is a well-made flick. It was directed by well-regarded Axel Braun and features nice locations, a well-developed plot, above-average acting on the part of the girls and guys, and good--if not stellar--sex.
Check out some photos of the girls in Into the Sunset here. Pay particular attention to the shots of legendary Sunset Thomas and Must-See-Girl Brooke Banner. Enjoy!


Note to readers: My reviews are provided in two parts. This webpage provides you with an overview of the scene's setup and action as well as my ratings for sex, video, audio, and production values. A separate Word document checklist details the foreplay activities, positions, pops, and features of each scene...as well as the calculation of each scene's ratings. The checklist for Into the Sunset can be downloaded here. You'll need a password. It's drjay2009.


Look for scenes and movies with a 4.5 or higher (A) sex rating and at least 4.0 (B) in video, audio, and production values. Those are my favorite scenes and I'm quite certain that you'll like them, too.

Scene 1

Scene Type: Boy/girl/anal

Performers: Lexi Love, Jay Lassiter

Scene Set-up: After spending some time at Hustler Hollywood signing posters and other memorabilia for fans, porn legend Sunset Thomas rides home in the back of a limousine. During the trip home, she talks with her driver Tony, an avid fan, about her hectic schedule. Sunset, in response to a question from Tony about how she keeps going, confesses that "it's actually the fans...I love them SO much!" After a bit more conversation, Tony makes a heartfelt request: "I really wish you'd consider doing another movie...since this guy down here (referring to his cock) hasn't seen any action since Misty Beethoven. Tony's plea starts Sunset thinking about her long and adventurous career and, after sharing her thoughts with us through the use of a superb dream sequence that beautifully ties together clips of many of her numerous movies, she decides to make one last flick. But, instead of fucking any old porn stud, she will let one of her adoring fans do the honor! (Wouldn't you like to have been chosen?) So, she tasks her assistants Lexi Love, Mia Presley, and Penny Flame to set up the shoot with Larry Flynt from Hustler and to find the perfect guy. The girls "get right on it," post notices on on-line bulletin boards, and plan how they're going to interview and "screen" the candidates. Contestants seemingly appear out of nowhere and, of course, Sunset's girls have a GREAT time vetting, interviewing, and screening them...physically, of course. After considerable discussion of a plethora of applications, Penny, Mia, and Lexi choose to interview Jay Lassiter, affectionately known as "contestant #1," first. Jay, of course, wants to see Sunset. However, bold and aggressive Lexi steps up to him and coos, "You've gotta get past me!" As Lexi grabs Jay's cock and caresses his body, Penny and Mia watch for a while and then make their escape. Of course, Lexi and Jay spend a little time enjoying foreplay and then they enjoy no-holds-barred (perhaps, since this is an anal scene, I should say "no-holes-barred") sex. After the couple enjoys several positions of hard-hitting vaginal and anal sex, nasty ass-to-pussy, ass-to-mouth and numerous squirting orgasms, Jay pulls out of Lexi's pussy and shoots his white creamy load all over the outside of her vagina and onto her hairy bush. It's almost as sweet as a creampie!

Foreplay: Kissing, body licking, butt spanking, mutual striping, handjob, fellatio, finger-fucking, clit-jacking.

Vaginal Positions: Missionary, cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, kneeling doggie.

Anal Positions: Reverse cowgirl.

Girl cums: Yes.

Pop: Exterior pussy.

Sex rating: 4.80
Video rating: 4.50
Audio rating: 3.50
Production values rating: 4.50

What I Liked Most:

  • The mainstream quality of the acting, videography, audio, music, special effects, costumes, sets, and locations...during the scene set-up and sex scene.
  • Lexi's aggressive pursuit of Jay's cock
  • Lexi's hard body, tiny all-natural tits, hairy bush (a rarity these days) that's shaven below clit level, and repeatedly squirting pussy.
  • Lexi's delightfuly nasty vocabulary.
  • Lexi's hot, enthusastic, and sexy moves in cowgirl and reverse cowgirl.
  • Lexi's use of ecstatic moans and naughty words to moticvate Jay during sex.
  • Lexi's super-juicy pussy that liberally lubricates Jay's cock with every stroke.
  • Jay's deciison to eat Lexi's cunt during sex...to slurp up some of her bountiful juices..and to rim her pretty asshole.
  • Lexi's orgasm in mish and repeated squirting orgasms during finger-fucking and during anal reverse cowgirl.
  • Jay's use of all three of Lexi's holes: mouth, pussy, and asshole.
  • Lexi's superb all-the-way-down and extremely slobbery deep-throat technique.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • I would have preferred the color balance to be a bit less orange (the color balance is not unattractive).

What I Didn't Like:

  • In my opinion, there are no downsides to this scene.

Scene 2

Scene Type: Boy/girl

Performers: Penny Flame, Mike Butders

Scene Set-up: Penny, dressed in a hot white bikini, joins her boss Sunset who is sunning herself poolside. While Penny applies some Fab U Lust cream into Sunset's pussy, the girls strike up a conversation about the "gay" poolboy (Mike Butders). Supremely-confident Penny soon asserts, "I bet I can turn him." "I bet you can't," responds Sunset. So, Penny immediately sets out to win the bet: "Hey, pool guy!" Penny unabashedly flirts and poses for Mike, asks him to fish out a bug from the pool, and, when Mike complies and bends down to capture the creature with his net, tries to strip off his clothes as she chats him up. Taken aback, Mike plays innocent and unwilling. But, Penny continues to pour on the charm and work her womanly ways until Mike's defenses begin to evaporate...especially when Sunset, who's been watching from her deck chair, agressively tears off Mike's belt. The girls shove Mike down onto his back atop a deck chair, and then Penny brazenly opens his zipper and removes his already-erect cock from the confinement of his jeans. Meanwhile, Sunset gives Penny step-by-step instructions...like "kiss him, "tease him," and "show him your tits!" By this time, Mike's "gay" proclivities are gone and good-ole' hetero foreplay and sex commence. Sunset stays and "helps out" during foreplay and then takes her leave to allow Mike and Penny to enjoy each other's randy bodies. After Mike "proves" he has what it takes to fuck a real woman in several positions--and make her repeatedly cum like a volcano--he pops into her open mouth. Sadly, she spits out his semen.

Foreplay: Kissing, body licking, butt spanking, tit sucking and squeezing, hair pulling, balls squeezing and sucking, fellatio, cunnilingus.

Vaginal Positions: Missionary, cowgirl, spoon.

Anal Positions: None.

Girl cums: Repeatedly.

Pop: Open mouth; she spits out.

Sex rating: 4.15
Video rating: 4.00
Audio rating: 3.50
Production values rating: 4.00

What I Liked Most:

  • Sunset's step-by-step instructions to Penny that ultimately make Penny's quest to "turn" Mike from "gay" to "straight" successful. Sunset even demonstrates how to give one of her trademark blowjobs!
  • The girl/girl action that transpires between Sunset and Penny during the time Penny and Mike enjoy foreplay.
  • The fun-loving and playful chemistry that develops between Penny and Mike.
  • The exposed-to-the-world by-the-pool location.
  • Penny's hot-and-sexy body, especially her puffy pussy lips and her medium-sized all-natural bouning tits.
  • Penny's orgasms in missionary, spoon, and cowgirl
  • Penny's sexy moves in cowgirl.
  • Mike's ravenous redline-speed and balls-deep fucking moves in cowgirl.
  • Mike's choice to kiss Penny's mouth, cuddle her body tight to his, spank and spank her fine ass cheeks, and suckle her nipples during sex.
  • Penny's choice to jack off Mike's cock all over her face (don't you love it when your woman makes you cum?)

What Could Have Been Better:

  • I would have preferred the color balance to be a bit less orange (the color balance is not unattractive).
  • The outdoor location of the scene, couple with strong wind, caused some unwanted ambient noise that couldn't have been prevented given the weather the day the scene was shot.
  • I would prefer to have seen the couple transition from the last sexual position to the pop.

What I Didn't Like:

  • At the end of the pop, which i really liked since she jacked Mike off, Penny made an unfortunate and disrespectful decision to spit out his cum. I hate that.

Scene 3

Scene Type: Girl/girl

Performers: Sunset Thomas, Mia Presley

Scene Set-up: Mia Presley, inundated with applications submitted by guys who want to fuck Sunset in her last scene, stays late one night to try to catch up. Sunset sees Mia, scolds her for working late, and checks out some of the applications (with accompanying photos). As the girls chat about the contest, Mia soon confesses that all the letters and photos she has been reviewing are making her jealous. In fact, bold Mia flatly states, "I just think I could fuck you better!" "Honey," responds Sunset, "you don't have a penis." Wanna bet? Mia immediately tugs up her skirt to reveal her super king-sized strap on dick that is, of course, at full mast. As you might expect, Sunset drops to her knees and gives the lucky plastic cock its best-ever fellatio. After Mia pleasures Sunset with some superb cunnilingus, the girls move on to sex with the strap-on, a vibrator, tongues, and fingers. After the girls satisfy each other, Sunset makes Mia promise not to tell her girlfriend. Mia agrees to keep quiet and then the girls share a lusty open-mouthed kiss.

Foreplay: Kissing, mutual stripping, toy play, hair pulling, handjob and fellatio (with toy), cunnilingus, two-finger-fucking, clit jacking, pussy spanking.

Vaginal Positions: Missionary, kneeling doggie, piledriver.

Anal Positions: None.

Girl cums: Repeatedly

Pop: NA

Sex rating: 4.65
Video rating: 3.50
Audio rating: 4.00
Production values rating: 4.50

What I Liked Most:

  • Mia's aggressiveness...in particular, the fact that she's prepared to fuck Sunset with a strap-on at a moment's notice.
  • Mia's ravenous cunnilingus/finger-fucking technique coupled with Sunset's enthusiastic fucking-back moves.
  • Sunset's superb cunnilingus, labia/spanking, finger- and tongue-fucking, and rimming technique that causes Mia untold pleasure and makes her cum explosively.
  • The creative use of the location, including fucking atop a pool table.
  • Mia's delightfully-naughty words that she uses the inflame Sunset's lust. Sunset responds with plenty of her own nastiness.
  • Sunset's sublime body. Even though she's a MILF, she turns me on just as fast as she did back in the early 1990's!
  • The intense sexual chemistry that develops between Sunset and Mia...especially when Sunset eats Mia in missionary.
  • Sunset getting her pussy eaten and tongue- and finger-fucked by Mia in piledriver. Such a HOT position!
  • Mia's "creaming" and body-quaking orgasms in mish and in kneeling doggie.
  • Sunset's first-class wielding of a vibrator when she fucks--and spanks--Mia in kneeling doggie.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • I would have preferred the color balance to be a bit less orange (the color balance is not unattractive).
  • I would preferred to have seen the couple transition from one sexual position to the next (after an edit, the girls are doing something totally dissimilar to what was going on before the edit).

What I Didn't Like:

  • Nothing to report.

Scene 4

Scene Type: Boy/girl

Performers: Brooke Banner, Nick Manning

Scene Set-up: Professional swordsman, Nick Manning, hears about Sunset's search for the perfect--yet amateur--cock for her final movie and rushes to her elaborate home to try to convince her to go with a professional...like him. Nick rings Sunset's doorbell early in the morning and wakes her--and her hot blond lover Brooke Banner--from sleep. Sunset asks Brooke to answer the door and strongly admonishes Brooke, "I don't want to be bothered" by anything! Brooke admits narcissistic Nick to Sunset's home, thwarts his ineffective attempts to bypass her vigilance so as to disturb Sunset, and compromises by offering Nick "a shot...with ME!" So, brazen Brooke (a 2009 recipient of my Dr. Jay's Must See Girls Award) drops to her knees, unzips Nick's pants, and then sucks and strokes his temporarily flaccid cock to full mast (great slow-motion footage). Once his dick is titanium hard, she grabs him by it and leads him into a sitting room for more foreplay followed by rather mild--by Brooke's standards--vaginal sex in several positions. The scene ends when Nick pops all over Brooke's scrumptious tits.

Foreplay: Kissing, handjob, hair pulling, fellatio stringers.

Vaginal Positions: Missionary, cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, kneeling doggie.

Anal Positions: None.

Girl cums: Yes.

Pop: Exterior tits.

Sex rating: 3.75
Video rating: 4.50
Audio rating: 3.50
Production values rating: 4.60

What I Liked Most:

  • The hot kiss shared by Sunset and Brooke before Brooke goes to answer the door.
  • Brooke's bouncing all-natural tits...especially when she fucks the shit out of Nick in reverse cowgirl and cowgirl.
  • Brooke's unabashedly enthusiastic, sexy, and powerful moves, passionate groans, and motivating naughty vocabulary.
  • Brooke's superb all-natural body and her colorful and plentiful tattoos.
  • Brooke's naturally-hairy--yet nicely groomed--bush of pubic hair. Bald is hot, but is a bit trite nowadays. So, I look forward to bushes!
  • Brooke's sweet orgasm in missionary.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • I would have preferred the color balance to be a bit less orange (the color balance is not unattractive).
  • The slow-motion effects cause the audio to be out of sync for a while. Nothing could be done about it, however.
  • I would preferred to have seen the couple transition from one sexual position to the next (after an edit, the girls are doing something totally dissimilar to what was going on before the edit).

What I Didn't Like:

  • For the life of me, I cannot understand why Nick didn't go down on Brooke's luscious pussy and eat it! If it were me, I'd spend hours lapping up her elixir!

Scene 5

Scene Type: Scene morphs between boy/girl with Marco and Roma to sex-ed for the "fan" to a threeway with Sunset, Marco, and Chris (the fan) coupled with a boy/girl by Ron and Roma.

Performers: Sunset Thomas, Ron Jeremy, Marco Banderas, Roma, Chris (the fan)

Scene Set-up: Using numerical scores, Sunset and her girls narrow the list of applicants down until they choose a fan named "Chris." Of course, it takes more than lust and a dick to be a porn stud. So, Sunset and Mia concoct a plan to get Chris some "help." So, once Chris arrives on scene, Sunset whisks him off to be tutored by none less than the hedgehog himself, Ron Jeremy. When Sunset and Chris arrive at Ron's place, he's in the midst of shooting the cunnilingus portion of a boy/girl sex scene featuring Marco Banderas and Roma (Ron is hilarious giving Marco and Roma step-by-step instructions and personal demonstrations!). Sunset's arrival interrupts the taping. So, during a brief time out, Ron gives Chris some funny--yet practical--advice about what to do to prepare for--and participate in--his scene with Sunset. Once Chris has been properly coached, Ron takes him and Sunset onto the set he was using a few minutes before and, within seconds, Sunset's got the hedgehog's fully erect cock into her insatiable mouth. Ron continues to provide guidance to Chris and then directs Sunset and Chris as they start foreplay. While Chris and Sunset make out, Ron slips his already-hard dick into Sunset's pussy and fucks her in kneeling doggie. In due course, Sunset sucks Chris to full erection--while she and Ron continue to fuck in doggie. As the scene unfolds, Chris gets to fuck Sunset's generous tits and her pussy in mish. As Chris pounds Sunset's pussy, she demands of Ron, "Dude, I want some more dick. This is my final scene and I WANT SOME MORE DICK!" So, Marco and Roma, who have been on "standby" and have been watching from the sidelines, join in: Marco forms a trio with Chris with Sunset while Roma gets it on with Ron. After a while, Chris bows out and lets his favorite star, Sunset, enjoy several sexual positions with Marco. As Sunset's final scene comes to an end, Marco pops all over her face and into her open mouth (she sucks him dry) and Ron shoots an incredibly powerful load all over Roma's chest (she sucks him dry). But, poor Chris, who's really the focus of this movie, doesn't get a chance to splatter anybody. This is truly a shame and, in my opinion, ruins Sunset's final sex scene.

Foreplay: Kissing, mutual stripping, tit squeezing and fucking, handjob, fellatio, cunnilingus, rimming.

Vaginal Positions: Missionary, reverse cowgirl, spoon, kneeling doggie.

Anal Positions: None

Girl cums: Sunset cums twice, Roma does not appear to climax.

Pop: Two: open-mouthed facial and exterior tits.

Sex rating: 3.60
Video rating: 4.00
Audio rating: 4.00
Production values rating: 4.50

What I Liked Most:

  • The complexity and ingenuity of the scene. The plot is quite convoluted, yet plays out perfectly.
  • Ron Jeremy's goofiness.
  • Sunset's insatiable demeanor as well as her enthusiasm for Chris' performance and pleasure.
  • Sunset's motivating and nasty talk.
  • The playful chemistry that develops between Ron, Chris, and Sunset.
  • Sunset's incredible moves in reverse cowgirl and spoon with Marco
  • Sunset's orgasms in spoon and missionary.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • Given the whole amateur "search" theme of the movie, I think it's too bad that Chris didn't have more pussy time with Sunset (his dick leaves the action shortly after Marco joins him and Sunset to make a threesome).
  • I would have preferred the color balance to be a bit less orange (the color balance is not unattractive).

What I Didn't Like:

  • The fan, Chris, who is the focus of this entire movie, doesn't get to cream anybody's face or tits. Why? What a pity!


The DVD-9 disc I reviewed has an average selection of extras. In addition to a full-motion chapter selector by scene, the disc contains a very entertaining and informative 30-minute behind-the-scenes (BTS) featurette, a three and one-half minute recap of the coaching Ron Jeremy gives to fan Chris, and website information. The BTS includes footage of Sunset posing and strutting her stuff; video of the still photo shoots; impromptu interviews of cast (including the winning fan Chris), crew, and director; footage of Sunset "fluffing" (sucking him to erection) and making out with Chris; an extended version of Ron Jeremy coaching Chris; video of makeup sessions; behind the camera peaks at the shooting of the sex scenes; and on-set tomfoolery. Three stars.


 Final Thoughts

The best things about Into the Sunset include:

  • the amateur search theme and plot.
  • the attention to detail with regard to location, sets, costumes, make-up, and music.
  • the beauty of legendary Sunset Thomas, unsung (yet always appreciated) Penny Flame, and Dr. Jay's 2009 Must See Girl Brooke Banner.
  • Sunset's participation in three of the five scenes.
  • Lexi Love's very strong scene with Jay Lassiter.

Into the Sunset could have been better if:

  • the color balance were a bit less orange.

Things I didn't like about Into the Sunset include:

  • the simple fact that it's Sunset's last movie. What a tragedy!
  • Penny Flame's decision to spit out Mike Butder's semen.
  • the inadequate amount of pussy time given to "the fan" Chris in Scene Five as well as him not popping.
Overall sex rating: 4.19
