Cast: Aidra Fox, Otto Bauer, Veruca James, Michael Vegas, Katie St. Ives, Steven St. Croix, Darla Crane, Tyler Nixon
Length: 116:41 minutes
Date of Production: 2014
Extras: The best extra was the 21:29 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, the footage comprised of a series of post sex interviews with some of the cast. There was then a sex act menu, a photogallery, some trailers, spam and company information. Each of the interviews was different but allowed the cast and director put their scene in context as well as allow them to expound on various topics so don’t miss it.
Audio/Video Quality: All In The Family was presented in anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Jacky St. James for Digital Sin under her now-established Tabu Tales line. The director of photography was Eddie Powell, no surprise there, an acknowledged expert in the field with very few peers in terms of quality production work, their collaborations together considered some of the very best the industry has to offer. It was clear that a lot of work went into the movie and it looked really good, the editing by Gabrielle Anex and lighting helping a bunch. There was a company watermark in the lower right corner of the screen but it was very light and unobtrusive so few should complain. The aural components were well done too, the quality of the stereo English presentation combining clear vocals, appropriate ambient sounds, and a mixture of well handled musical pieces to work really well.
Body of Review: Jacky St. James and her work with Eddie Powell at Digital Sin have won many awards and been nominated for even more, sparking enough sales that the usual copycats are “borrowing” even more than usual from their idea mill. Their latest collaboration in the “Tabu Tales” line is called All In The Family, each of the four scenes centered on step family trysts where both consenting partners relished the impromptu encounters, the sex flowing naturally out of every day events. Of note was the age appropriateness of the couplings, no stretches of the imagination needed here as is all too often the case elsewhere, and the personal chemistry of the couplings; the believability of the encounters such that the company placed a disclaimer on the front of the credits. With Veruca James, Katie St. Ives, Aidra Fox, and Darla Crane on hand, I felt the movie had some solid potential to work well for me.
The back cover described the movie like this: “When life gets in the way, just remember....it's All In The Family. When a woman realizes that tutoring her stepson isn't enough motivation for him to pass his classes, she offers sex as the ultimate incentive. A young woman challenges her stepfather to fulfill her wildest fantasies by leaving him a series of provocative notes, each with their own illicit instructions. After her stepfather becomes frustrated that she's turned his man cave into a make-out location, a young woman comes up with a tempting solution that benefits everyone. A party-going college girl challenges her stepbrother to lead a more adventurous life, only to discover that he's more of a bad boy than she could have ever imagined.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Aidra Fox, a cute brunette from Milwaukee, was up first as a step daughter repeatedly imposing on Otto Bauer, the man almost defining “creepy older man” years ago in a lot of titles. One thing led to another, a cameo by a popular young lady (guess who) included, where the two pushed each other to do the implausible and start kissing in the game room “man cave”. Her tight gray skirt barely covered her perky little ass and her top was off her hard body in no time, his kisses moving southward where he played with her tits and pulled down her panties to shake her perfect little rump. She slobbed his knob with the skill of a seasoned cock sucker, Otto as perfect in his version of the nasty step father as St. Croix is with the kindly older man version, her aggressive oral providing a lot of enthusiasm as he barked out directions. She throated most of his turgid rod as the streamers flew, some hand to gland friction included as he pushed her limits, his brief gash gobbling not enough for me but it was clear he wanted to bone the babe right then so even the 69 was cut short. Her pussy had a wisp of pubic hair but otherwise made her look too young, Otto drilling her in various positions as her moans became stroke worthy, additional oral by both of them ending in him plastering her crotch with his sperm.
Scene Two: Veruca James, a sexy brunette “bad girl”, was up next with step bother Michael Vegas, his good guy image making him seem like a puppy to her. Unlike many of the previous trysts in the series, these two were shown to be friendly to one another, the guy upset at how she viewed him as she told him of her new boyfriend’s love of BDSM. When he overheard a particularly sensitive conversation, he decided to take advantage of it, Veruca wearing a blindfold as he quietly slipped in to secure her feet and wrists to the bed while he quietly went down on her. By the time he revealed himself as the one pleasuring her, she had a major internal conflict to balance out the guilt of pushing him to go so far versus how great his ministrations were but quickly gave in, the two kissing before he dove back in as a “sick little fucker”. He fingered her hairy snatch from there and shoved his cock in her mouth to suck, fucking her pussy in a multitude of positions as well as rimming her to ecstasy while she gave him a foot job. The playful dynamic at work elevated the quality of the scene as did the kinky little touches, her active riding and additional oral leading to him draining his dragon all over her sweet ass.
Scene Three: Katie St. Ives, a popular gal with pretty eyes and a more diversified porn resume than most of her peers, was up next as she came to the conclusion that her step father, kindly Steven St. Croix, needed better loving than her mother was giving the guy. As her fascination with him grew, she devised a plan to excite him over a period of time by using post it notes placed around the house where he would see them. One day, she was masturbating with a pink vibrator from the company line when he stumbled upon her, her pussy already dripping wet and both of them ready to fuck like bunnies. He felt her up and she inhaled his cock orally, throating him to the bone on the beige couch before he ate her at length, even engaging in some 69 before the vaginal pounding took place. He choked her and was a little rougher than usual to get her off, her pubic patch cut nice and neat with Katie aggressively riding him like she was on fire. The doggy position finished him off, Katie rolled over to take his wealth of seed all over her neck and face, the couch not spared of his ejaculate either in the chemistry filled tryst.
Scene Four: : Darla Crane, a curvy redhead with a huge rack and a fleshy ass to die for, was up last as the disciplinarian step mother turned tutor to Tyler Nixon. Her approach was to take away his privileges when he wasn’t putting enough effort into his studies, one day the pissed off lad suggested it was her fault he was such a lousy student so she bent over and handed him a paddle to smack her ass with. The idea was that if she was even partially at fault, she deserved punishment too, Tyler resisting the idea at first. When he catered to her suggestion, it excited him and she made a confession about being a prowling cougar, her passionate hummer showing the skill of a lifetime as she worked him over orally in the study. Since discipline had limited motivational impact on him, using positive reinforcement would be tried, the lady giving him free access to her body as part of the deal. He slid his cock in her pussy in a standing doggy, missionary, a very active set of cowgirl positions, and intermittent oral before the spooning and titty fuck led to him nutting his seed all over her boobs.
Summary: All In The Family by director Jacky St. James for Digital Sin had solid casting, upscale technical values, and four creative scripts going for it, the casts handling the dramatic material at quite well. I know some out there prefer the brighter themes of Jacky’s Romance lines to the forbidden fruit aspects of Tabu Tales but the darker elements give more to work with and remain more interesting over time for some, enhancing replay value for many and strokability for others. This time, the series of vignettes earned a rating of Highly Recommended courtesy of efforts in front and behind the camera. None of the scenes were clunkers, each offering some serious replay value and strokability while providing the kind of genre action honestly described, all four ladies paired up with the right guys for the specific vignettes they were in. In short, I liked All In The Family as another appealing outing in the “Tabu Tales” line, Jacky again proving to have the right stuff to pull such an effort together without it getting particularly creepy, the combination of men and women in the four vignettes lending some credibility to the trysts.
