Porn Stars At Home

Vivid Entertainment

Genre: Feature

Hanna Hilton with Alan Stafford

Director: Paul "Chuck Lords" Thomas

Cast: Hanna Hilton, Cayden Moore, Crista Moore, Alan Stafford, Beverly Hills, Alex Gonz, Mike Butders, Asa Akira, Jaelyn Fox, James Deen, Riley Evans
Non sex roles: Bud Lee, Joel Lawrence, Mario Rossi, Rebecca Lane, Ashley Jensen, Brandy Edwards, Viginia Want, Shylar Cobi, Chris King

Length: 116:47 minutes

Cayden and Crista Moore

Date of Production: 8/18/2008

Extras: My favorite related extra was the 8:02 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Shylar Cobi. The footage really did not give a lot to work with but fans of the cast will appreciate seeing them prepare for their respective scenes all the same. There was then a sort of highlight reel from five scenes lasting 93:02 minutes and showing some of the best parts of the action (scene clips from Sugar, Bounce, and "The Set Up"). There was then a biography for Hanna Hilton, some trailers, spam, and a photogallery.

Condoms: None

Beverly Hills with Hanna Hilton

Audio/Video Quality: Porn Stars At Home was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director Paul "Chuck Lords" Thomas for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480p resolution. For those unfamiliar with his background, Paul is well known and well awarded in porn, a number of fans appreciating his better movies. This one was shot in 1080i high definition, the trio of cameramen attempting to do their best for the quickie project even despite a rapid time table. The editing was a bit choppy this time, Fletcher Martin probably doing his best with the varied footage shot from the three cameras. The composition of the camera angles was not optimal this time, catering to the director's need to make a movie more than shoot for the sex as most of his peers seem to do. The fleshtones were generally accurate and the DVD mastering was well done (the bitrate hovering around 3.6 Mbps), the visual appeal of the movie pretty solid thanks to Hanna's natural beauty. There was a company watermark that I wasn't too keen on but most of the camera work seemed to keep this in mind, keeping the majority of action far away from the lower right hand corner. 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. I liked the little bubblegum pop song added in for the soundtrack, the rest of the score somewhat forgettable.

Body of Review: Paul "Chuck Lords" Thomas is one of the most award winning directors in all of porn over his 30+ year career, most of it spent at Vivid Entertainment. While I generally find a great deal of fault with his lower budget productions, that is only because I care to watch the best material available, my belief that sexually stimulating scenes should be the focus of such movies rather than the FFF (fast forward fodder) that most people speed past even the first time they check out a porn flick. That said, I took a dive into the bin to find a few slightly older flicks of his that had been initially planned for someone else, their loss equally my gain (or so I thought). One of those titles was Porn Stars At Home, a sort of mockumentary starring lovely Hanna Hilton as she lived out a day in the life of a porn performer beset with problems of a porn nature, some of them unintentionally funny. The best thing about the movie for most of her fans will be how much material was spent on Hanna too, the young lady observed in each of the four scenes having a good time. The box cover said it like this: "A beauty like Hanna should have no trouble making a home in LA. But as it turns out, porn stars don't live like the rest of us. Not when her twin friends challenge her to a cocksucking contest featuring her roommate! Or when her leading director and leading man practically comes to blows over her! Or when she gets attacked by the other Gold Star Models! In short, Hanna may need a new place to live. Got room?" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Riley Evans, Hannah Hilton, and Alex Gonz

Scene One: Hanna Hilton, the blond babe featured on the cover, was up first as she sought out a room for rent outside of her Dallas home, needing a place in Southern California for her work. To this end, she was introduced to sisters Cayden Moore and Crista Moore, the gals immediately getting catty at the charms Hanna showed when playing with their moper boy toy Alan Stafford. The ladies enjoyed Hanna's lap dance on Alan a whole lot, soon competing with her to see who could give the best blowjob, each of them providing at least a decent hummer though Hanna observed to be the best of the batch. Hanna also went down on the ladies fairly well though it was far from an exciting scene for me due to the manner in which it was scripted. The vaginal riding was moderately active with Hanna taking over as the Moore sisters were sent packing, the limits of the scene such that even the modest wad of genetic juice Alan was capable of had to be launched at Hanna's tits.

Scene Two: Hanna Hilton, Beverly Hills, Alex Gonz, and Mike Butders, were up next as Hanna sought out another place to live, Bud Lee sending her to Mario's place to look at one of his rooms. Beverly was in the middle of sucking off Mike while Alex shot it, the guys swapping out when Hanna took pity on Mike (so she started working her charms on him). Hanna pulled out her tits to liven up the moment and started blowing him on the red couch, the titty fuck really appealing to him until she climbed into his lap to actively ride him in her snatch. Beverly was not shown all that well though, Alex acting like he had taken a few too many Xanax or something he was so laid back, the partners swapping out for Mike to bone Beverly's butt while a passive Hanna took Alex in her pussy. The ladies ended up milking the men to get stomach pops, the day ending on a sour note when Mario's intrusive camera work killed the idea due to her contract.

Scene Three: Asa Akira, Jaelyn Fox, James Deen, and Hanna Hilton, were up next in the infamous "Gold Star House" surrounded by an assortment of other folks too. Initially, Asa and Jaelyn jumped James in the game room during a round of pool, the ladies kissing each other while he wedged himself in to get some premium pussy from both of them. He was at least as oral as they were here, servicing both gals before vaginally plowing both of them, the ladies blowing him and taking turns riding his pecker. Asa did a short solo scene as James did Jaelyn though, making me feel something was "off", the trio working better together after that although there was no pop shot. That was when the ladies broke off to start molesting Hanna who was asleep, going down on her as she awakened with James coming up to get some more good loving from all of them. This second section of the scene was too short for my tastes and resulted in the missing pop shot launched on Hanna's titties, the gals licking her until they decided to do some urination on him in the bathroom (though not displayed; the cameraman seen in the corner of the room thanks to the mirror).

Scene Four: Hanna Hilton, up last as she toured a recreation center, ran into Riley Evans and Alex Gonz, the couple having a room to rent out. They went upstairs and the ladies tried out the bed, it proving very comfortable for their lesbian antics. Riley was stoked on Hanna's all natural breasts and she started acting on her impulses, soon located between Hanna's legs where she nestled the youngster as she satiated her taste buds. This part was not shot or edited too well but Alex walked in with a raging boner and the ladies, Hanna in particular, did what came naturally and started slobbing his knob actively. There was fingering and the ladies both rode the cock somewhat passively, the spitting and lack of chemistry weakening the scene for me more than a little bit. It got better with time in terms of how active they rode but the technical aspects of the scene never measured up, reminding me that it was released as a "Chuck Lords" title instead of PT's usual name. The load of population pudding graced Riley's sweet ass cheeks and Hanna gave some post coital sucking, the enduing humor kind of amusing even if generic to an extent.

Bonus Scene: Sugar: The first scene brings out Hannah, as a photographer's model, and pairs her with one of the best dick-slingers in the biz, Jack Venice. Between his massive, well-controlled fuckstick and her incredibly lusty eyes, wanting mouth and unbelievable natural breasts, this is simply a great couple to watch fuck. After warming up with a thick vibe in her snatch (and looking terrific doing it), Hannah turns her attention to Jack's tool, giving him a wet, thorough bj (staring into your eyes), before he returns the favor by eating her amazingly hairless cunt out. The thing I was most looking forward to was seeing how her breasts moved while getting railed, and with Jack on hand, I knew he'd give her a workout. I was not disappointed. When he bends her over and pounds her canine style, the way her tits sway might be the sexy thing I've ever seen. It's an overall terrific scene. (review by Chris Knight)

Bonus Scene: Bounce: Riley Evans, another foxy blond with pretty eyes, was up next, following the formula as she provided a breast-intensive tease, taking her time as she brought her all natural hooters out for a spin. The initial montage had footage from a few locations, sadly short on the backyard fun on the sunny day but soon settling in to the couch where Jerry assisted her with some boob massaging. I greatly prefer natural tits and Riley's have been inspirational on more than a few occasions in recent times, Jerry going down on her for a bit even though his cock was hard enough to cut diamonds. Riley eyed the camera a lot too but she intensely worked the penis orally as well, her titty fucking among the best in the movie (even if too short). The couple took their time to make it a better scene too, the oral punctuating the vaginal sex where she actively rode his rod in several positions. Riley seemed driven during the cowgirl position fucking most of all, the intermittent taste testing not as frequent but the gal seemingly in her zone, the ending result being her titties covered with his load of population pudding to lick and rub. Sweet!

Bonus Scene: Sugar: Thankfully Hannah's back, and she's brought Whitney Stevens with her, as they compete for Rocco's attention in a motorcycle garage. Though Hannah's the undisputed chest champ here, Whitney's no slouch herself, and they take turns tempting Rocco by fingering themselves on stairs, bikes and chairs, as he goes from girl to girl like a kid in a vagina-flavored candy shop, giving and getting head. Among the highlights here are Hannah's tits (naturally) and Whitney's POV blowjob, though there's no three-way action to be had. That's easy to miss when transfixed on Hannah's stunning knobs, bouncing up and down as she gets pounded from below, or when watching Rocco plow Whitney from behind to get her own impressive jugs a-juggling. (review by Chris Knight)

Summary: Porn Stars At Home by director Paul "Chuck Lords" Thomas for Vivid Entertainment was another quickly shot feature that never lived up to the potential of the cast or crew, earning a Rent It for everyone except huge fans of Hanna Hilton's that want to see as much of her as possible, regardless of the scene quality. It wasn't terrible but the replay value for the smutty portions was extremely limited and the dialogue parts seemed to be mostly adlibbed from what I could tell. In short, Porn Stars At Home was an attempt at a light hearted comedy that fell short of the mark, the production all over the place in terms of quality despite having such an attractive babe (Hanna Hilton) starring in every scene. Give it a look on a slow day and you may find it is an alright diversion but it was never close to the better works released by Vivid.
