Cast: Kayla Carrera, Tommy Gunn, Diamond Foxxx, Manuel Ferrara, McKenzie Lee, Mick Blue, Lisa Ann, Courtney Cummz Non-sex role: Jim F.
Length: 78:51 minutes
Kayla Carrera with Tommy Gunn
Date of Production: 11/13/2009
Extras: There were some trailers, a photogallery, a slide show (on the SD version only), and an 8:01 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Jamal Johnson that was edited by Ryder. The BTS (linked above) was pretty fun to watch since the cast & crew all had a good time but it lacked the comedy associated with their better BTS features (ie: the comic stabs by Nick and Joey for example). .

Audio/Video Quality: Cougar Street was presented in 1.78:1 widescreen using a 1080p resolution with AVC encoding (in Blu-ray) versus the 480 resolution with MPEG-2 encoded standard definition version as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground. The composition of the camera angles was generally flattering to the ladies, the footage shot during the sexual trysts tending to include a whole lot of close up material. Otherwise, the RED camera system was used exclusively here from what I could tell, all shots forced from a stationary location, greatly limiting the diversity of the content. The video bitrate varied significantly but when I spot checked it, the numbers typically kept around the 21.6 Mbps mark in high definition while the SD version came in at around 6.1 Mbps. The colors seemed more accurate this time, still impeded by the sheer amount of close up work but not by the lighting; Keyser Foze doing a fair job on editing from what was shown (there were some abrupt transitions and disappointing lack of certain positions but that is to be expected when the camera is stuck on a tripod). The audio was presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital English with a 48 kHz sampling rate and 640 Kbps bitrate (in the Blu-ray version; 448 Kbps in standard definition), none of the vocals showing any separation though the score seemed to during the opening and closing. I did notice that some portions were substantially louder than others so be prepared with remote in hand (like most folks) to compensate, the balance off in other areas as well.

Body of Review: Robby D. has demonstrated to the world that he is one of the best technical directors in the jizz biz time and again, his ability to get the best out of his crew undisputed at Digital Playground. Still, in recent times, I have found so much of it to be alike that it just wasn't working for me in the intended fashion so keep this in mind when reading the following review; a casual viewer probably finding his movies better than someone watching all (or most) of them and the competition. His latest movie is called Cougar Street and I was fortunate enough to get both the DVD and Blu-ray versions, the former far cheaper in price while the latter showing enhanced visual elements for those with the right gear (minimum of 50" television with 1080p capabilities, full stereo for the audio). In porn terms, a "cougar" is a woman that seeks out much younger men (sometimes women though that is not the common use of the term) to have sex with. That being the case, I expected the pairings in the movie to reflect that idea, this being the first shortcoming given the relative ages of the cast being so close together. Otherwise, with ladies such as Lisa Ann, Diamond Foxxx, and Courtney Cummz in key roles, there was still a lot of potential to trip my trigger even if the expectations of technical matters were on the modest side. The box cover described the movie like this: "Same old street, new hot chick. On Cougar Street anything can happen. When McKenzie Lee moves in the men in this neighborhood can't keep from sneaking a peek at this sexy cougar and find any excuse possible to help her move those heavy boxes." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Lisa Ann with Manuel Ferrara
Scene One: Kayla Carrera, a skinny gal with big implants (second from the left side on the front cover), was up first in bed with Tommy Gunn, the couple discussing the new neighbor as she showed off her body in bikini undies before stripping. Tommy was all over her orally, playing with her tits and crotch as she moaned in pleasure, not showing any degree of real excitement but enjoying the situation all the same. After he went down on her, she gave him a very short blowjob using her hand to limit how much of his rod went in her mouth, soon impaling herself vaginally on his cock in a few positions (using some taste testing but not much) until he rubbed out a small wad of genetic juice to her crotch.

Scene Two: Diamond Foxxx, the curvy blond on the left side of the front cover, her sparkling eyes helping make up for her bitchy attitude with Manuel Ferrara. They ended up on the bed kissing, pawing each other as he ate her from head to toe. She did not "beg for cock" once inside but she did show an affinity for sucking him off as her lips wrapped around his thick pecker, the hummer again abbreviated before they vaginally screwed. She was an active rider but in need of more warm up time, their kissing and titty fucking leading to his facial of population pudding running down her face.
Scene Three: McKenzie Lee, the skinny gal featured on the middle of the front cover, was up next proving just what a charmer she could be with Mick Blue, his hands all over her tits as he nuzzled her neck. In return, she dropped to her knees to slob his knob aggressively, stroking him off with her hand as she blew the dude. He gave her a little head after that but both were focused on vaginally boning on the sofa, the cowgirl variations and doggy competing with the minimal anal to cause him to unleash his seed into her mouth during a final blowjob.
Scene Four: Lisa Ann, the curvy beauty wearing red bikini underwear on the right side of the front cover, was up next as she seduced studly Manuel Ferrara into her bedroom. Her robe didn't last long, nor did his jeans and black t-shirt, the couple feeling each other up between some choking, oral, and vaginal plowing. He savored the taste of her ass and she enjoyed his cock in her mouth, the titty fucking helping to make it a complete bit of action between the two. In terms of the cougar theme it would have certainly been better to have some youngster like James Deen do the deed but given the substantial sexual upgrade offered here, I doubt many people will complain too loudly. They boned until she blew him, a last moment of cowgirl leading to an abrupt edit with no pop shot.
Scene Five: Courtney Cummz, the sexy former contract gal (at Zero Tolerance) seen on the front cover (second from the right), was up last in a lesbian scene with McKenzie Lee where both of them displayed some appreciation for the female form. They rapidly disrobed and kissed a lot, going down on each other at length with a huge emphasis on close up material. Thankfully, some medium shot work was also included to show them off better, the composition of the shots cutting off heads with boxes and otherwise looking like it was not scripted until they were ready to close out for the day, neither gal looking as if she got off despite some heated moments.
Summary: Cougar Street by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was one of the shortest pornos I've watched in a very long time, clocking in under 80 minutes with meager extras to make up for the full priced fuck flick. The pairings were also curious given the theme of cougars (the men can dye their hair all they want but they do not look any younger, sorry guys) though there was definitely some enthusiasm and energy if not a consistent level of chemistry between the players. The storyline was minimal enough to be tossed aside from any serious consideration of the movie being called a "feature" yet there did seem to be some attempt to let the ladies look their respective ages, perhaps since none of them were employed under contract, the decision was made to use fewer filters, gels, and other age-limiting devices. I rated this one as a Rent It to be generous due to the aspects discussed above but for those that watch a couple of porn flicks a year and want to see older women banging equally old men, this one might appeal to you more than it did to me. In short, Cougar Street was a cute little flick about an older lady moving into a neighborhood well suited for her sexual needs, it just lacked the thematic and replay value to make it a clear cut movie to add to your collections even if you like the ladies of the cast such as Lisa Ann, Courtney Cummz, or Diamond Foxxx.
