Cast: Raylene, James Deen, Shayla LaVeaux, Seth Gamble, Sky Taylor, Patrick Knight, Diamond Foxxx, Faye Reagan, Anthony Rosano, Camryn Cross, John Espizedo
Length: 182:55 minutes
Date of Production: 10/17/2009
Extras: Despite the back cover advertising a bonus scene that was not on the disc, and that there was no Behind the Scenes feature as advertised, the other extras included the trailers, photogallery, and pop shot recap one tends to expect. I lowered the score accordingly but I can't help but wonder what happened to make this so since the company is used as an example of pro-consumer by some of my peers, I hope it was just an oversight.

Audio/Video Quality: It's A Mommy Thing! 5 was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Patrick Collins for Elegant Angel using the MPEG-2 codec with 480p resolution. The movie was not as crisp and clear looking as Patrick's best works to date but it was still very polished in all the major areas so fans will not be disappointed. The lighting was good with only a few moments that could have been touched up, the raw energy nicely developed by the director. William Nutsack worked the camera and editing by Graham Travis, Michael Cates, and Bruce Carter helped keep this one looking solid on a technical level. Otherwise, there was little grain, some video noise, and mostly minor visual issues that got in the way of having a truly first rate picture but such matters were few and far between, handled better than expected for the gonzo company. The composition of the shots tended to favor the ladies nicely, rarely chopping off their heads in a frame or missing out on significant portions of the action. The editing was good this time though a few of the edits were too abrupt or noticeable but part of that might be due to what kind of footage was presented. I saw no compression artifacts (it was largely falling around the 3.9 Mbps video bitrate; in the mid-range but probably needed given the amount of material on the DVD) and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers as most of his work these days tends to do. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases. For those keeping track, the audio was offered in a 256 Kbps offering with a 48 kHz sampling rate, plenty of room considering how little took place on it but leaving room for future efforts too.
Sky Taylor with Patrick Knight
Body of Review: Patrick Collins is a name that invokes many fond memories for long time fans of the gonzo genre, his works competing against some of the best known pornographers to ever pick up a camera. His company, Elegant Angel, has been on a renaissance for several years now and shows no sign of abating, their straightforward niche readily available for all to see. Patrick usually leaves the directing chores to his minions these days but he still dabbles with shooting, It's A Mommy Thing! 5 his latest personal project worth looking into. As expected by the title, the movie is a set of five scenes focusing on the MILF (mother I'd like to fuck) market, a whole lot of fans finding horny women with experience and their own money to be better bed buddies by far than the flavor of the month types populating the industry works so much more often. This time, Patrick provides scenes with Raylene, Shayla LaVeaux, and Sky Taylor among others, all of the ladies sort of fitting the theme if not exactly what I had in mind in each case. The company website described the movie like this: "Patrick Collins proudly presents, "It's a Mommy Thing 5" an assemblage of the most beautiful and depraved MILF's in the industry. Watch the superstar, Raylene, joined by Shayla LaVeaux, Diamond Foxxx, Camryn Cross, Faye Reagan, and Sky Taylor. "It's a Mommy Thing 5," is a sexually sophisticated depiction of fantasy role-playing at its best. In an industry that is over saturated with unoriginal couch sex, Patrick Collins focuses on creative scenarios, chemistry between performers and real female orgasms. His movies are unlike anything else in porn." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Diamond Foxxx and Faye Reagan
Scene One: Raylene, the attractive comeback queen featured on the front cover, was up first as she went along with lovesick puppy James Deen in the kitchen. The stilted dialogue was kind of weak but as a long time fan of hers, I have to admit I wanted to get some from her too, making his advances more realistic to me. He drove her to the adult arcade where she was ordered to service men via the gloryhole, coming back with a wad of genetic juice on her neck, the pair going home to the beige couch where they cuddled together. James was soon diddling her snatch and she was receptive to his advances, the pair kissing as she undid his belt to access his dick for sucking. Raylene's strength as a performer has always been her oral skills with a cock, the gal inhaling his meat aggressively as she serviced the lad. Scruffy James then went down on her for a short bit, his pecker slipped inside of her pussy for the beginning of several positions of passive sex (he choked her a little but it did not stimulate her into giving a more active ride). Her roast beef labia and loose caboose fulfilled her end of the MILF bargain and he upheld his by rubbing out a wad of genetic juice to her face.
Scene Two: Shayla LaVeaux, a gal best known as "gumdrop", was up next as she readied herself in the bathroom before a solo shoot at the hands of moper Seth Gamble, the action getting his modest member hard enough to stroke while she applied a pocket rocket to her clitoris. Shayla then gave him a footjob before advancing further, a hearty hummer leading him to go down on her in return. They kissed at length and each did oral on the other, his penis sliding inside of her pussy easily despite the positions where she rode so actively. They sweat up a storm and showed no chemistry together, but Shayla was in charge the entire time, making his serve her as needed before jerking off to her face.
Scene Three: Sky Taylor, dressed to the hilt in a sleek black outfit as she sipped her martini, gave moper Patrick Knight a thrill as he watched some smut on his portable electronic device. She was in the mood for young meat here, the cougar dynamic in full play, her hand soon running up his shorts as she climbed all over him. Her kiss led to a sweet little blowjob that she enhanced by using some hand to gland action, driving him crazy with a need to drop seed which was satisfied all too soon by a few vaginal positions of sexual penetration. He rubbed out the facial that she was waiting for, Sky spitting out his population pudding rather than swallowing it, her laughter at her success not saying much at all.
Scene Four: Diamond Foxxx, an older blond with a curvy body covered only by a few patches of fabric (in the form of the world's tiniest bikini), was up next as she impressed internet gawkers Faye Reagan and Anthony Rosano. The shadows showed the crew in the background but Diamond liked masturbating, the young couple getting it on until Diamond walked in on them. Faye blew Anthony and then continued to jerk him off as she sucked Diamond's tits, the threesome moving back to the couch where the ladies treated him to a dual experience. The gals then took turns riding his cock vaginally and he licked some toes, the lesbian antics minimal but omnipresent as the three tried to get each other off, with Faye trying some toe tasting before the ending wealth of spunk landed on Diamond's ass cheeks.
Scene Five: Camryn Cross, an older blond needing some loving, was wearing a low cut blue top and white shorts when she decided she needed some physical action from someone she could dominate, the lady texting moper John Espizedo and the two leaving together from a party. He then patiently waited for her to apply her makeup in return for which, she slowly seduced him in the living room. Camryn took the slow and seductive approach to blowing him, savoring the experience as she wrapped her lips around his pecker to enhance the experience for both of them. He then tried going down on her but did not seem to be making much headway, the couple settling for a series of vaginal screwing positions in bed where her overacting killed it for me completely (to go from such a great scene to blah really bugged me). She tried to save it later with some active riding but the ending facial came too soon and poof, it was done.
Summary: It's A Mommy Thing! 5 by director Patrick Collins for Elegant Angel was not one of his best works though there were some flashes of brilliance enough to know that casting difficulties almost certainly played a role in why a few scenes just did not work out and others fell short so I rated it on the merits of the better material (not to mention that missing extras) and gave it a generous Rent It. In short, It's A Mommy Thing! 5 may appeal to the hardcore cougar fans out there that want to see just how mediocre lame male talent can make otherwise high in potential scenes fall but seriously, the strokability was minimal with two exceptions so don't get your hopes, or dicks, up before watching this one.
