This Ain't Happy Days XXX: Fonzie Luvs Pinky (Blu-ray)

Hustler Video

Genre: Sitcum, Porn Parody


Director: Alex Braun

Cast: Nicole Ray, Tommy Gunn, Kris Slater, Jessica Lynn, Krissy Lynn, Anthony Rosano, Brooke Lee Adams, Alan Stafford, Raquel Devine, Eric John, Chris Charming, Kiera King
Non-sex role: James Bartholet, Jack Lawrence

Length: 111:49 minutes


Date of Production: 2009

Extras: The best extra for most people will be the bonus scene from Barely Legal #97 that I've described below in detail. Personally, I prefer extras tailored to the actual release in hand such as deleted footage, additional scenes not included in the movie, extended length scenes and the like but if you're reading this, you probably already know that. I did like the 25:26 minute long Behind the Scenes feature though, as it allowed the cast and crew a chance to extol the many virtues of the production, starting with Tommy shaving his infamous goatee for the leading role of Fonzie. The rest of the extras were generic in nature such as trailers, a slide show, and a bunch of spam in the form of commercials.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: This Ain't Happy Days XXX: Fonzie Luvs Pinky (Blu-ray) was presented in a colorful 1.78:1 ratio, widescreen, offering as shot by director Alex Braun for Hustler Video using the 1080i resolution and AVC codec typical of high definition projects. (the video bitrate hovering around the 14.3 Mbps mark when spot checked) Unlike earlier sitcum efforts by the staff at Hustler, there appeared to be an attempt to do this one right, paying closer attention to the sets, the clothing, and other visual elements of the movie. The original show started off as a single camera effort that went to a three camera production after the show became a hit so this parody did look closer than usual on technical levels too, albeit pornified somewhat with lower budgets and time constrictions as expected. The editing wasn't as tight as the best genre efforts but Claudia Ross seemed up to the task of polishing up Axel's raw footage nicely enough. The standard definition version of the flick had few compression artifacts, only a bit of noise & edge enhancement, and proper lighting to assist in making the movie look more like the original, the art direction credited to the director himself. In short, in terms of the visual aesthetics, this title fell short of the original volume in the series but wasn't bad at all, still a notch above most of Axel's works in the sitcum genre. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English with a 224 Kbps audio bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate, the theme song by performer Drew Rose and co written by the now-infamous Roger Krypton, truly a fun song to listen to (still my favorite of the year at this writing). The rest of the audio track had a few problems though, the background noise/laugh track/special effects mixed in a bit too aggressively and a few vocals not caught as solidly as possible. The music was overall true to the show though and that helped aurally elevate it in my opinion.

Body of Review: This Ain't Happy Days XXX #1 was my favorite sitcum by director Alex Braun for Hustler Video this year, the cast meshing well and the concept handled very smoothly compared to how clunky some of his other titles were (some amounting to boring copies of shows like his "Star Trek" release, others showing a lack of knowledge for the shows in general). Given that the company likes to run with winning efforts, it did not surprise me that they decided to green light a sequel though in the form of This Ain't Happy Days XXX: Fonzie Luvs Pinky (Blu-ray). For those of you that enjoyed the first volume of sexual hijinks by the cast, you should know up front that there were some cast changes, the writing a bit more expansive but not working as coherently either. This time, Fonzie (Tommy Gunn) was chasing the girl of his dreams, the rest of the cast relying on his advice for their own trysts. The short version of the review is that for me at least, this was closer to the level of Hustler's usual sitcums than the original but it was still worth a look or two for fans of the cast. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Brooke Lee Adams and Alan Stafford

Scene One: Nicole Ray, the brunette spotted on the far left side of the front cover, was up first as Leather Tuscadaro, the rocking bitch showing Tommy "Fonzie" Gunn and Kris "Chachi" Slater, a good time in the diner. Nicole pawed the men and they pawed back, the gal falling to her knees to slob their knobs in her slutty dress. Unlike most such scenes in sitcums, the blowjob action seemed to go on forever, the skinny lady greedily inhaling their meat pipes until they took off her pants to take turns vaginally drilling her silly. She was a largely passive rider in most positions though, weakening the effect for me even as she continued blowing one while the other took her. Suffering from BBS (boney butt syndrome), she might not have had the energy to go the whole nine yards so the guys rubbed out major wads of genetic juice to glaze her face, the guys watching from behind the wall.

Raquel Devine

Scene Two: Jessica Lynn and Krissy Lynn, the two blonds from the front cover, were up next in a case of mistaken identity when Anthony "Potsy" Rosano put on Fonzie's jacket in the bathroom. Telling them his "dick wasn't going to suck itself", he proved his Fonzie impression was about as weak as his Anson Williams persona, the ladies taking turns blowing him but seeming like they were prohibited from touching each other or otherwise engaging his pecker at the same time for most of the scene. Jessica was the more active of the two and she seemed intent on displaying a need for seed, the gals taking turns with the vaginal riding but generally showing the same "don't touch" policy as they masturbated while the other was getting boinked (and mostly showing passive screwing at that). Krissy took the facial and the scene closed up, Tommy walking in to show his own form of disapproval.

Kiera King and Tommy Gunn

Scene Three: Brooke Lee Adams, playing a fleshy Lori Beth, was up next on the couch with Alan "Ritchie" Stafford, the pair about to study before she jumped his bones. She made the first move and he laid back to let it happen, soon pawing her titty before she blew him. Brooke proved she had just the right stuff when it came to working his modest member, the camera catching her ample midsection a bit too prominently, the gal riding his cock vaginally well enough to look for her again. I liked watching her fleshy ass cheeks ripple as she rode him too, her porn moans too generic but coming across as having some chemistry with the guy too. When he eventually jerked off to her face, the first wave struck her right in the eye, causing her to flinch, but it was otherwise an okay scene.

Scene Four: Raquel Devine, playing everyone's favorite housewife, was up next in yet another case of mistaken identity, servicing frisky Eric John and Chris Charming, when they mistook her for a party gal. Eric unfastened her blouse to reveal her large tits and Chris whipped out his norbecker, Raquel providing what amounted to the best hummers of the show as she savored the dicks orally. Raquel also excelled at providing an active vaginal ride here, alternating between the guys with her mouth and pussy in several positions. The scene finished up when the guys unleashed their population pudding to her chest, the gal licking their rods as if satiated.

Scene Five: Kiera King, the redhead featured on the far right side of the front cover, was up last as Pinky, looking trashier than the other ladies of the cast as she discussed her romantic past with Tommy Gunn in his auto repair shop. They kissed and made up, slowly caressing each other as the clothing came off for Kiera to slob his knob on her knees. Whatever her look here, she seemed focused on her task at hand, using some hand to gland combat to enhance the hummer before passively taking his pecker inside her pussy, then ass. The scene was not all it could have been and ended when he busted a nut on her gaping asshole.

Bonus Scene: Barely Legal #97: Nicole Ray, the sexy young lady featured on the front cover, was up next with Talon, the pair exchanging presents on the bed by the fireplace before he brought her his last gift, his pecker in a box of lollipops. She loved licking things so she took to his pecker very aggressively, inhaling his cock with the seasoned oral skills of a lady that has probably slobbed the knobs of hundreds of men in her sorted past. He then ate her hairy pussy, drilling her vaginally in a handful of positions before the modestly active gal took his wad of semen in her mouth for swallowing. I noticed the movie became all pixilated during the screwing though and that weakened it for me.

Summary: This Ain't Happy Days XXX: Fonzie Luvs Pinky by director Alex Braun for Hustler Video lacked the energy and thematic appeal of the first volume in the series but I still found it enough of a nut buster to merit a Rent It. In some ways, the scripted elements seemed rushed, the sexual pairings uninspired, and the extras weaker than I hoped for but this was balanced off by the stronger points fans will undoubtedly appreciate for a viewing or two. In short then, This Ain't Happy Days XXX: Fonzie Luvs Pinky was not even close to the quality of This Ain't Happy Days XXX #1 in terms of the fun factor and heated sexuality but it does show that there are no givens in the sitcum market, so perhaps Axel will pay closer attention when attempting sequels in the future. Also, in regards to the high definition version, the enhanced details and resolution did help the way the movie looked on my large screen television but was not enough of an improvement to really upgrade the rating.
