Cast: Joanna Angel, Holly D, Lucky, Skin, and Cecilia Vega.
Length: 3 hr 17 min
Some trailers, a photo gallery, and a massive 50 minute behind the scenes featurette. This segment of interviews and candid shots from on set and around Europe feels more like a documentary than anything else. It's very entertaining and worth checking out once you're finished watching the film.
European Vacation is presented on DVD with a 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio. The film looks decent for the most part, considering it was shot with a single handheld camera. There's some grain, compression artifacts, and the contrast is off at times, but that's par for the course. It's not a high-end production by any means, but there's a voyeuristic/amateur tone to everything that gives it personality. The sound is also a mixed bag, but for the most part the overall presentation is good. It's like watching a sexy-hot vacation video!
Body of Review:
Joanna Angel and James Deen have collaborated on a release for Burning Angel Entertainment called European Vacation. This particular outing is a tad different than the vacation National Lampoon took! There's a definite punk atmosphere to this release with trash rock, pink-haired, and tattooed girls all over the place. The theme of the film is that James and Joanna head off to Paris and loose their wallets and passports along the way. In order to get back they have to sell James's cock. It's rather an entertaining story and these two have a ton of fun with it. Of course it also helps that the sex is very, very good and there's plenty of voyeuristic stuff to appreciate.

After a four minute or so introduction that plays out basically like a clip show of their vacation, James and Joanna get down in dirty inside a park in Paris. There's a brief introduction to the area and the two play along with the theme quite a bit. The action is handled POV style with James using the camera and getting up nice and close to Joanna. Let me just say, this opener is incredibly sexy. It's just naughty feeling, like they're going to get caught at any moment, and Joanna really heats things up with heavy panting and light moaning while the camera is in her face. This was arguably one of the sexier POV scenes I've ever watched and I think that's a testament to the incredible talent of both these performers. Awesome way to get this European Vacation started!
The second scene in European Vacation sees Joanna and James trying to figure out how they're going to raise money for their passports. The scene features James approaching some chick (Holly D.) by the Eiffel Tower and squeaking out terrible Spanish in an effort to offer her his penis. Eventually Joanna talks her into it and the trio heads over to some remote monument for some sexing. James gives it to Holly like he does every girl and naturally she pays the couple well for his services. Hilariously the scene ends with James getting complimented by Joanna by running off into a field crying because he feels used and abused!
The crying continues into the third scene where James is sitting in a bathtub sobbing because he's a whore. Joanna tries to convince him that it's okay. Naturally she's very convincing and even reaffirms her statements by offering up her own body for James to have fun with. Once again the sex here is extremely good and both stars know how to heat things up. Since it's just the two of them on this vacation the camera is set up stationary and they get into some positions to work the angles. Sometimes it's successful and other times it's not, but it's hot all around. They have a lot of fun and I think that's what really keeps the action feeling intense. There's just such chemistry between these two that other performers could only wish they had.
The next scene features Lucky and Skin interviewing for a chance to fuck James. Joanna handles the interview, but the girls eventually get sick of the questioning and waiting for James. They get to work on each other with some lesbian bit. Joanna captures every detail and there's quite a sensual atmosphere to the whole scene. It's clear that these two girls truly have a good time and they seem to know each other's bodies well enough. With that being said they don't necessarily work the camera as solidly as Joanna does, but then again who can?
A slight change of pace is in order for the fifth scene of European Vacation. Holly has returned and this time she brings her boyfriend in tow for a threesome with James. This chick is incredibly hot and like her first scene this one really stands out thanks to her performance. I'm not entirely sure if she's done film work before, but she truly draws the camera's attention and stands out in the middle of the action. The sex here is very good as one might expect. It's purely pussy and oral play with no anal or DP involved, but then again that wasn't necessary by any means. James does her well and with her boyfriend's cock in their midst Holly has more to choose from.
The final scene in European Vacation begins with some banter between James and Joanna as they count their cash and see how much they've gotten. My God by Joanna is perky and adorable! She seems like a fun person to hang around and you really get a good sense of her personality here. The two head out to celebrate how well they've done. They meet up with one of Joanna's old friends who takes them to a strip club of sorts. Cecilia is dancing up a storm there and eventually heads over for some lesbian action with Joanna. It's incredible, I assure you, but it's only the beginning of this scene. Eventually her friend gets into the mix and Joanna and Cecilia team up against him. The scene moves on to encompass pussy, anal, and an inevitable ejaculation, but that's not the end. He keeps going and on top of that James gets involved. Soon enough there's a foursome full of anal, DP, and even more cumshots. An incredible scene and one of the sexiest I've watched in quite some time.
Joanna Angel and James Deen's European Vacation is one hell of a release. It's a lot of fun to watch thanks to the personality of the main performers and the sex is actually very good all around. Whether it's James or Joanna, or even one of their European clients, this release offers up some incredibly hot voyeuristic sex. If you're looking for a unique, entertaining, and sexy release then European Vacation is definitely something to consider!
