Extras: The best extra was the 59:00 minute long Behind the Scenes feature showcasing the ladies but also including some of the true BTS material with the rest of the cast too. There were also a cumshot recap, five photogalleries, a cast list, 12 trailers, and filmographies too.
Audio/Video Quality: Phat Bottom Girls 4 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen the scenes were originally shot in by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel using the MPEG-2 codec as expected. The quality of the visuals varied a bit here but Manuel focused less on the technical matters instead of maintaining the usual sexual energy and chemistry. The lighting was decent and that eliminated most of the problems associated with gonzo productions, Manuel's works virtually always a few notches above the competition from what I've seen over the years. The editing was decent, if a little rushed, and the minor quirks on the technical side did not deter me from enjoying the scenes most of the time. The bitrate was all over the charts here with much of the footage coming in around the 4.4 Mbps range but there were not a lot of compression artifacts present that I could see. The audio was offered up in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate but there was no separation noticed that I could figure out, and the dynamic range was pretty limited too; the scenes coming from quickly shot gonzo; the guerilla shooting style favored by pornographers everywhere.

Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is one of the nicest porn directors, his work in front of the camera typically enough to drive women wild as seen from personal experience. As a director distributed by Evil Angel, Manuel provides the basics of heated sex, passionate ladies, and his ever present amounts of chemistry that few of his peers can offer these days. His latest release making it my way for review is called Phat Bottom Girls 4, the title emphasizing ladies such as Katsuni, Sara Jay, Kristina Rose, Bobbi Starr, and Franceska Jaimes; all of whom have exceptionally ample samples when it comes to round asses. Given this plethora of curvy cuties and the double disc nature of the show itself, I was sure it would provide a lot of replay value, strokability, and fuck for the buck to make this a winner of a movie.
The company website accurately described the scene like this: “French-born pervert Manuel Ferrara is renowned for his sexual intensity and an almost romantic, intimate focus on his female performers. At the same time, the winner of this year's AVN Award for Best Anal-Themed Series and Best Gonzo Series is a really kinky bastard! Phat Bottom Girls 4 presents both sides of this handsome and personable sex fiend. Five ladies go one-on-one with Manuel in scenes that focus on tease, fine asses and female submission; yet each girl adds her unique personality to the mix. Sinewy, muscular Latina Franceska Jaimes has a tightly packed booty just made for ass-fucking. She and Manuel share an improvised anal date that's fiercely passionate and nasty; then he sprays her sultry face with cum. Stunning brunette Bobbi Starr leads Manuel from the sauna to the living room, opening her famous asshole wide and having her erogenous zones probed by Manuel's feet! He pumps his cock in and out of Bobbi's glistening gape and delivers a messy oral cum shot. Sweet little Latina Kristina Rose performs a nasty workout tease, with her disproportionately large ass swallowing up a glass butt plug, then Manuel's huge, uncut prick! He tongues her clit to orgasm, pushes his big toe inside Kristina's ass, and eventually shoots a load in her lovely mouth. Tattooed slut Sara Jay brings her incredible, monster ass to Manuel's attention. He blindfolds her and worships her mighty backside and dominates the mature slut, banging her pussy in various positions and having Sara clean his asshole and ball sack before feeding her a mouthful of goo. Finally, French-Vietnamese porn legend Katsuni soaks her luscious skin in a milk bath and follows up with more milky tease in the shower. Refreshed, the lovely Asian submits to Monsieur Ferrara's appetites. Katsuni sucks his cock and licks his undercarriage. Her face gets rudely smacked with his stiff rod, her throat is squeezed between his feet, her beautiful pussy is fucked out, and the petite princess even endures an abortive anal attempt - before sucking out every drop of Manuel's ejaculate.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Franceska Jaimes, the appealing brunette featured on the center of the front cover, was up first with Manuel Ferrara, her curvy figure moving throughout the house in erotic attire that showcased her curvy physique. The wardrobe changes led to her masturbating on a beige chair, shoving an impossibly large dildo up her ass and other toys to follow with some taste testing. Once she was properly stretched out, Manuel joined her to give her some head and rim her, Franceska sitting on his face before slobbing his knob and kissing his feet. He pushed her limits but she willingly complied, their connection more than casual even if not quite as solid as a few of the better scenes in the flick. She ate him in full service fashion too, eating ass and balls until the anal penetration positions began. She was an active rider and took the rubbed out facial well, his wad of genetic juice combining with her sweat to seal the deal with a squeal.
Scene Two: Bobbi Starr, the popular extreme anal queen seen on the upper right hand corner of the front cover, was up next as she masturbated anally in a sauna with some toys. Her perfect pucker was ready for action so she then moved over to aggressively blow Manuel Ferrara, the couple much like a clash of the titans in terms of being able to dish it out as well as take it. There was also salad tossing here and some foot fetish, the active vaginal penetration leading to anal on the white couch in the living room. This sweet heated tryst continued until he bust a nut of population pudding on her face, Bobbi showing her asshole by spreading her cheeks.
Scene Three: Kristina Rose, the cute brunette seen on the upper left hand corner of the front cover, was up next as she pranced around the house in some tight fitting workout clothing, her laced up leggings and white leotard enhanced by her curvy body shape. This was a scene made special by the lengthy tease session, Kristina soon anally masturbating with a glass anal plug to ready her for some work with favored sex buddy Manuel Ferrara, his lips locked to her ass as soon as she allowed it. She sat on his face while seated on the red couch, Manuel going further to satisfy her oral needs which led to various active anal penetration positions and plenty of taste testing. They have long been a sexual item in their pairings and this was no different, some choking and rough stuff draining him of his splooge when he couldn’t hold out any more and gave her face his nut.
Scene Four: Sara Jay, the bountiful broad seen on the lower left hand corner on the front cover, was up last on the first disc, her wealth of flesh spread wide on the chair as she gave the camera a full view of her ample sample. The tease was fun and included her wearing a blindfold, the gal reaching out to jerk off Manuel Ferrara before he boned her vaginally and she followed up with a fine blowjob. The two appeared to like each other even if the chemistry levels were not the same kind of connection found in the last few scenes, both of them coming back for more until she tossed his salad, he ate her ass one last time, and then a short burst of boning led to her facial.
Scene Five: Katsuni, the ever popular Asian hotty featured on the lower right hand corner, was up last as the sole scene on the second disc, the lady bathing in a large tub of milk. The tease was slow and exceptional here, even my great distain for anything using milk not weakening the appeal to me, Katsuni calmly enjoying herself until it was time to shower clean. This was also heated and led to her pairing off with Manuel Ferrara, her hand wrapped around his turgid rod as he fingered her soundly which led to some sweet oral by both of them. There was some foot fetish material here but their personal chemistry together was again a highpoint of the tryst, both going all out to pleasure the other (even getting rough at times). It was vaginal only but frankly, no anal was needed (even if they attempted it) to drain his balls dry of spunk all over her face.
Summary: Phat Bottom Girls 4 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel had about copious amounts of copulation footage, the director offering the kind of passion & chemistry expected so I rated it as Highly Recommended or better. Manuel is pretty decent as a director in the gonzo realm but his biggest strength will probably always be his own sexual abilities and chemistry with the ladies, all four scenes worthy of his status (even the one he wasn’t in). In short, Phat Bottom Girls 4 was one of his increasingly rare double disc releases, starring such notables as Katsuni, Bobbi Starr, Kristina Rose, Sara Jay, and Franceska James so give it a look.
