Extras: Silvia: trailers and a photogallery; Kobe: had some trailers and a photogallery; Bella: director's commentary. Both Jenna and Justin goofed around and helped explain what they were shooting for in the movie, along with plenty of anecdotes. There was also five minutes of bloopers and deleted scenes, a fetish menu, a 5.5 minute long featurette "Meet Harry" (one of the wacko non-sex characters of the show), five photogalleries; Nikita: a photogallery and trailers.
Audio/Video Quality: We Love Jennawas comprised of four separate movies shot at different times with a wide variety of special effects and screen ratios. Some were letterboxed, others full frame, and the lighting was all over the map like the camera work, the special effects, and the rest of the visual elements. The audio was more centered by comparison though, typically clocking in with stereo Dolby Digital but also including some choices on shows such as Bella Loves Jenna, fans of the old Club Jenna flicks sure to know the kind of thing to expect on each of the component titles.

Body of Review: As economic times force tough decisions on companies, a number of curious effects have been observed by this critic. One of the most prevalent marketing tools has been the prolific number of compilations, most companies relying heavily on taking individual scenes and releasing them in single or double disc sets but some just taking multiple movies and combining them too. One of the latest such products like this is called We Love Jenna 4-Pack, a group of four titles in the “Loves Jenna” series I had long learned to appreciate. One of my favorites over the years was Bella Loves Jenna, and that is included in the package deal here, but also similar titles starring Silvia Saint, Kobe Tai, and Nikita Denise; most of the highly popular sellers in the back catalog left out of the deal (for now). That said, Jenna Jameson was long held as the biggest “name” in porn bar none, her crossover appeal placing her in all sorts of mainstream projects, feature dance gigs, and all the acclaim one might expect of a total hotty who worked for the biggest feature company for years, and had tremendous amounts of public relations support at just the right time in the early to late 1990’s. Her later exploits with marriage and fame aside, it is difficult to over emphasize Jenna’s impact on modern porn, the result being that a scene or two of her in a movie tended to translate directly into major sales.
The sexual pairings in the individual movies are as follows:
Silvia Loves Jenna casting: Jenna Jameson with Silvia Saint, Taylor St. Claire with Adriana Sage, Jenna Jameson with Justin Sterling, Jenna Jameson with Skye and Silvia Saint, and Sophia Rossi with McKenzie Lee
Nikita Loves Jenna casting: Nikita Denise with Mick Blue, Krystal Steal with Toni DeSergio, Jenna Jameson with Nikita Denise, Cherry Rain and Courtney with Nacho Vidal, Nikita Denise with Marco Banderas
Kobe Loves Jenna casting: Jenna Jameson with Kobe Tai, Carmen Luvana with Randy Spears, Jenna Jameson with Kobe Tai and Jezebelle Bond, Dee with Lee Stone, Jenna Jameson with Justin Sterling Bella Loves Jenna (see full review at Bella Loves Jenna)
As far as this review is concerned, there are ample reasons to skip going into great detail individually, most of which relates to the short length of the titles (other than “Bella”, the movies were often barely over an hour long, a scandal by modern standards where fans expect a lot more fuck for the buck no matter who is starring in each flick. I’ve seen three of these titles previously and reviewed the biggest one in terms of sales way back in the day, but different times means different standards in technical matters as well as what constitutes “hot”, my long term appreciation for Jenna Jameson now tempered by the reality of her own statements and the many improvements made in the industry (from longer scenes, better lighting, more explicit and chemistry filled trysts, etc.). Suffice it to say, if you have been a fan of Jenna Jameson, after picking up her many compilations, sets like this one are sure to please if you find the right price, some online retailers selling this for about what a single title goes for (but if you hate Jenna, you will want to skip this by all means).
Summary: We Love Jenna by directors like her former husband Justin Sterling or artistically bent fellows like Laurent Sky, Jenna Jameson herself credited on occasion too, was a mixed bag for me but given the price for so much fuck for the buck, a rating of Recommended certainly seems fair, there being little middle ground to follow since Jenna either did other women (lesbian scenes; yum!) or her former husband (Justin/Jay) and much of the footage seems too artistic for my tastes so your mileage will vary. In short, We Love Jenna had nothing new to offer a dedicated fan of Jenna Jameson since it was just a bundle of four previously released movies spanning the last decade or so but at a new price point, it is conceivable that some might find this enough of a discount to bring it into their personal realm financially so give it a look if you’re interested.
