Date of Production: 4/27/2010 (credits); 4/25/2010 (box cover)
Extras: The only extras were minimal with a photogallery, a pop shot recap, some trailers, spam, and a mere 3:53 minute Behind the Scenes feature where the highlight was the ladies chatting it up.
Audio/Video Quality: Swimsuit Calendar Girls 4 was presented in a crisp 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as released by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec with 480p resolution. The camera work was solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows and the picture appeared to be crisp this time. Nutsack has proven to be a devious genius in terms of catering to what his fans want, expanding upon themes and capturing them in really clear fashion (this one catering to the hordes of swimsuit loving fans out there). I saw no compression artifacts as the video bitrate clocked in around the 3.1 Mbps area; modest enough for an SD flick but better than some on the market these days, and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers as most of her 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, the music from My Beat Shop enhancing the end result as usual.

Body of Review: William H. Nutsack and Elegant Angel are sometimes referred to as a pair of "formula heavy" producers by critics, the movies that make addressing what fans want most and applying specific formulas for the cast to follow. While this could be a bad thing if taken to the extreme, I'm more than happy waiting a lot of heated tease, ladies getting oiled up, and then having passionate sex with a partner over artistic endeavors that only work in the minds of drug induced wannabes that make the claims in the first place. William's latest endeavor to apply a formula is called Swimsuit Calendar Girls 4, the movie featuring ladies like Phoenix Marie, Jayden Jaymes, Gracie Glam, Asa Akira, and Tori Black (the popular lady on the cover). As with previous entries in the series, the emphasis on skimpy swimming attire, gobs of sunlight, and lots of oil mixed with water certainly made this one a welcome addition to my review stack this weekend, earlier volumes in the series such that I felt this might really be a winner. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Asa Akira, an Asian hotty wearing a purple bikini on a public beach, was up first with a heated montage of outdoor footage where she teased the camera in a seductive manner. The all natural lighting looked great on her and I wish she could have had her scene on the beach rather than in the house with Steve Holmes. The couple started off by kissing and he went further south, stopping at her neck and tits to savor her taste before she blew him with ease. The eye contact elevated their perceived chemistry and she pushed herself to give him an even better time, Steve wrapping his tie around her neck as she nuzzled his nut sack. He then ate her ass and pussy, the gal masturbating before several positions of vaginal sex ensued, the passion exhibited getting better with time as she pushed his limits ever further. He responded by roughing her up a little, Asa getting off as he did, some minor choking included that made the scene come across as her wanting ever more, some additional oral action punctuating the final penetration action. The scene ended when he bust a wad of genetic juice on her face, Asa an active rider throughout the scene.
Scene Two: Phoenix Marie, a curvy gal with a devilish attitude about enjoying herself in whatever she does, was up next with some tease footage by the indoor pool while she was in her bikini. I would have loved to see her on the beach too, lots of oil poured on her frame as she frolicked around as well, but she made it her own as she finished up to suck on the cock of Michael Stefano. Whatever kind of mood she was in seemed amplified by his presence, her intensity levels increasing as the couple went off on one another, Phoenix making a lot of eye contact throughout the scene. She looked great in the pool (and would look great in my pool too!) and their playful kissing encouraged both of them to take it up a notch, Michael smacking her ass after a brief bout of ass licking, the guy drilling her pussy hard as he bent her over the edge of the pool from inside. She aurally coaxed him to go harder and her facial expression made me think she loved every second of it, this being the type of scene probably too much for pussies to handle. Both of them fingered her ass and he choked her a bit, the couple doing some taste testing as they used each other in a nasty manner to get off. Unlike some hardcore scenes, this one was full of what I call "fun factor", the couple passionately enjoying what was happening at all times, Michael using her own suit to ride her and Phoenix's subservient streak allowing her to let go while her ass was in the air and her head down on the pool deck as he pounded her ass mercilessly. Her anal gape hang time was impressive too, the active riding ending the scene when he unleashed his seed into her ass crack. Whew!
Scene Three: Gracie Glam, a sexy brunette with lots of fine curves, was up next on the beach in her skimpy patterned bikini, the perfect day showing no clouds as she teased in public to reveal glimpses of her perfect tits and lean figure. She oiled up too but it was not enough for my tastes, the gal changing bikinis to end up in a bed with studly Mick Blue. They pawed each other as they kissed, her hand finding his pecker to jerk off as she unfastened his pants for better access. That was when she began blowing him in a teasing manner, coyly licking his shaft and inhaling his rod as he laid back to appreciate her efforts. At his insistence, they moved into a 69 where he ate her out as she continued her oral onslaught, Gracie repositioning herself to sit on his cock for the beginning of the vaginal positions. She was an active rider from the very beginning, her fleshy ass rippling delightfully as she impaled herself on his cock. This led to forms of taste testing and a few more bouts of boning, the gal playing with her ass a little before the eventual facial he provided for her kisser. They appeared to have some chemistry, perhaps not on the same level as the previous scene but ample amounts to elevate the status of the scene all the same, their eye contact assuring they were getting into the action all along.
Scene Four: Tori Black, the sexy brunette featured on the front cover in her skimpy bikini, was up next as she was showcased in a montage of beach footage that included less public nudity but all the same appeal as Gracie had offered previously. She oiled up and gave her seductive looks to the camera, her picture perfect physicality clearly understood as the young lady did all she needed to to show why she is so sought after these days. One note of interest here, when I was writing this review and looking for screen captures, the movie locked up on me during her tease montage at about the 1:50:30 minute mark, my stand alone player showing no such problem as the scene played. In any case, she was paired up with moper Anthony Rosano, the pair kissing before he ate her ass and pussy out, Tori reciprocating with a fine hummer once they started doing the vaginal plowing. She also seemed willing to engage in some minor anal play but stopped short of allowing his cock inside of her back door, some rubbing and fingering about all she wrote. The scene was not her best by a long shot but she did come across fairly well, taking the ejaculated semen to her mouth when they finished up without complaint.
Scene Five: Jayden Jaymes, a very sexy brunette with awesome hips and a winning face, was up last as she teased on the beach in her tiny bikini. Again, I wished this portion of the movie was longer in all cases but the gal seemed to have fun as she playfully showcased her physical assets, leading to an abrupt edit point where the scene picked up in the house. She was paired up with Michael Stefano and this time, he initiated the oral pleasures, moving from front to back as he satisfied her need for direct stimulation with his tongue. I know he is not one of the best meat puppets on the market these days but he still manages to perform better than all the guys half his age, Jayden enthralled by his oral acumen as he gave her room to show she was also a talented oralist. Her blowjob skills were not as immediately apparent as some of her peers but she had fun in the bed with a decent performance, not the best of the lot but a step up from Tori's. The ending wad of sperm went to her mouth by his hand and the look in her eyes was great as she waited for it, her semen mustache looking really good on her.
Summary: Swimsuit Calendar Girls 4 by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel was an easy title to rate as Recommended thanks to the casting, the performances, and the technical expertise that went into the production. The straightforward formula was such that it worked for me consistently and never detracted from the ladies, each of them looking their best under the sun. In short, Swimsuit Calendar Girls 4 was another notch in the belt of Nutsack that proves formulaic porn doesn't have to be boring or lame, the ladies clearly appreciating being allowed to have fun during their respective scenes so check it out but pay close attention to the scenes by Phoenix Marie, Asa Akira, and Gracie Glam all worth extra credit.
