Date of Production: 10/1/2009 (trailer credits); 1/29/2009 (box cover)
Extras: There was a 9:48 minute Behind the Scenes feature (click to watch it) that was decent enough about introducing the cast and crew but fairly little of the humor that made the companies previous endeavors in the field gems to watch once upon a time. There were also the usual set of trailers in high definition, a photogallery, and nothing else for those that care.

Audio/Video Quality: Bad Girls 3 (Blu-ray) was presented in 1.78:1 widescreen using a 1080p resolution with the high definition AVC encoding as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground in Blu-ray while the 480 resolution, MPEG-2 coded SD version seemed a bit pale by comparison. The composition of the camera angles was generally flattering to the ladies, not as fluid as some of his earlier efforts but sporting enhanced resolution likely due to the use of the Red One camera system he now relies upon so heavily. Thematically, the attempts to be stylish were mixed but my least favorite aspect of the show was the abundance of extreme close-up shots, the director forgoing medium and long shots while using filters and/or gels to compensate for the resolution versus the reality of the look the ladies had here. The video bitrate varied significantly but when I spot checked it, the numbers typically kept around the 19.3 Mbps mark in 1080p resolution. Of note to me was how the colors seemed muted, even on the high definition version of the movie, some soft focus moments and places where the camera seemed at a loss to capture what was most important was also evident. I also found the editing by Nick P., a man that has really managed to polish up some weak efforts in the past using his skillful talents, to be weaker than normal for some reason. The audio was presented in a post-production added 5.1 Dolby Digital English with a 48 kHz sampling rate and 448 Kbps bitrate, none of the vocals showing any separation though the score seemed to during the opening and closing. I did notice that the opening credits were substantially louder than the opening dialogue so be prepared with remote in hand (like most folks) to compensate, the balance off in other areas as well.
Body of Review: Digital Playground has long relied upon director Robby D. to handle their many efforts, only Joone occasionally stepping in for those expensive blockbusters the company releases every couple of years. This reliance on a single visionary has helped elevate the company to new heights but at the same time limited their growth potential for new ideas, the talented man one of the best technical people in the jizz biz. His latest release making it my way is Bad Girls 3 (Blu-ray), the series generally known for showcasing everyone at the company that they figure is worth something, this volume starring lovely Jesse Jane and cute Riley Steele, as well as some popular outsiders such as Jenna Haze, Madison Scott, and Jenaveve Jolie. Going into the production, I had few expectations and had heard virtually nothing about it, the end result being I was ready for anything out of the relatively short movie built on a mere five scenes. The Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jesse Jane, as bubbly as ever, was up first with cute blond Madison Scott and Ben English at a bar. The ladies showed a definite affinity for one another, licking and caressing each other while they shared his pecker, Jesse's power stroke method probably enough to milk his balls quickly were this a real life tryst. The camera appeared to haphazardly record what was going on, panning too quickly and jumping around in a manner I wasn't keen to observe, the abundance of close up shots further degrading the effort quite early in the show. The oral was active by both ladies and the vaginal penetration was nearly as driven, the lack of personal chemistry noted even when the facial of genetic juice was launched at the faces of the ladies. They gave him some mechanical post coital head and were done with him, kissing each other to share his wad.
Scene Two: Jenna Haze, one of the most popular ladies in porn not currently under contract, was up next at the bar with moper David Perry, Jamall Johnson still playing his character role as a makeshift bartender. Jenna was perky and unabashedly willing to go at it right there, the couple kissing before he undid her blouse to suck her titty and go down on her. Jenna rewarded his advances with an enthusiastic blowjob, a long time specialty of hers, where her hand to gland combat style increased the friction as the shy guy learned to appreciate her sloppy hummers. Jenna Haze savoring a cock is a given on par with Roger and I inhaling banana laffy taffy, the look on her face regardless of who she is working with a pleasure to behold but there was again minimal chemistry between them as they got right down to business. She put on all the right expressions and pushed back as he drove his cock deep inside her snatch but this was far from her best work, both of them engaging in some taste testing along the way. The scene finished up when she jerked out a nut of population pudding to her face while keeping eye contact, the sweet gal owning him by the time they were done.
Scene Three: Jenaveve Jolie, a hot looking Latina that I have not seen a lot of recently, was up next as the brunette bombshell stretched out on the bed while wearing her sexy red dress. Ben English came to check up on her and she girlishly engaged in some frivolous banter with him, laughing as she tried unsuccessfully to explain away a previous liaison. To make it up to him, she started nuzzling him and kissing his lips, her ass in the air as she crawled all over him while he felt her up. This led to her wrapping her infamous lips around his cock and sucking the life out of him, swinging her legs around him to complete the 69 so both could pleasure the other orally. They then moved into doing a series of vaginal penetrations, Jenaveve less active than her best work but able to handle his sizable rod all the same. The best positions for me were the cowgirl variations as her sweet ass rippled delightfully as she impaled herself, bothered only by her repetitive moans and grunts before he unleashed his load of semen into her mouth. The energy levels were decent and I liked the playfulness but the chemistry needed work.
Scene Four: Jesse Jane, the hotty blond featured on the center of the front cover, was up once more, this time engaging the mighty Evan Stone in some dialogue. While a far cry from the equally stilted words they shared in a few big budget pirate movies, the idea was to set up the sex as logical (for a porno) and they did reasonably well in that regard). The troubled Jesse gained his sympathy though, her black dress shoved aside to offer Evan greater access to her as she jumped around in his lap. Jesse then suck started his cock like a true champion, Evan choking her as she choked his chicken and then held her down while she was going down on him. He was as hard as diamonds when he went to pounding her pussy, the cleanly shaven slit lubing him up for more oral as she cleaned him between his bouncing back and forth from her pussy to her mouth. They did display some chemistry here, something quite missing in the previous scenes, and Jesse was into his large dick tearing into her, but the scene was generically located on a couch and showed little creativity. My favorite part of the scene was when she kept pulling his dick inside of her during the active vaginal riding, Jesse blowing him even after he rubbed one out of her face.
Scene Five: Riley Steele, the sexy babe showcased on the left side of the front cover, was up last with moper Danny Mountain, her physical appeal still increasing as the fetching beauty sipped her drink from the bar. The trivial dialogue was again mediocre, Riley having little to work with as she readied to change gears for the sexual action. She initiated it by blowing him on the green couch while he spanked her ass. Riley's active hummer was pleasant to watch despite the lack of chemistry or connection with Danny, the gal trying to interject some playfulness as she got on her knees to please him. The vaginal penetration seemed shorter than usual here as the editing bounced them about too much, the issue with close up work again marring the performance she gave. The taste testing and moaning aside, it ended when he jerked off to her crotch, Riley cleaning him up by slobbing the tip of his knob.
Summary: Bad Girls 3 (Blu-ray) by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was a short flick consisting of five scenes barely tied together via a barroom setting. For me, I expected more from the work of Jesse Jane and whoever decided the final lineup of who worked with whom should probably get a few lessons given the lack of personal chemistry but there was enough strokable footage (if not replay value) that fans of Riley and Jesse should consider this one a Rent It. In short, I admit to being disappointed in Bad Girls 3 (Blu-ray) given the experiences I've had with the ladies, the director, and the company in the past but as a slight midweek rental, it will probably get the job done well enough for casual fans of porn wanting to see what Jesse Jane and Riley Steele are all about.
