Audio/Video Quality: The picture wasn't the absolute best I've seen from Wicked but it still rates well above 95% or more of the rest of the movies released by other companies. At times, there was a slight reddish tint to the video but these moments were generally only noticed after my third viewing of the movie. The audio had a couple of spots were it seemed as though dubs were used but again, the problems won't be noticed by most people. The music wasn't much of an attention getter for me.

Body of Review: I first watched this one during a Memorial Day porn-o-thon and thought it was excellent! Since then, I've seen it many times and still feel the tingle a good porno is capable of bestowing. It had everything I like about porn-babes, great sex, high end production values, and a sense of humor-all rolled into a well mastered dvd.

The movie is basically a spoof on the porn industry as seem through the concept of the popular book series "For Dummies". How many of us have browsed the bookstore and seen the large number of books in the series-everything from Computers For Dummies, The Internet For Dummies, all the way to Home Buying For Dummies with everything else inbetween? As a comedy, it could only be properly directed by Jonathan without taking the risk of it sucking goat turds. Who else could Wicked have trusted to get this one right?

Regardless, Jonathan brought all the right elements into play to turn in one of his better comedies to date. Not a single filler scene was present and not a single clockwatching female performer graced this effort. Okay, enough ass kissing on my part, here's the scene breakdowns by cast:

Scene One: The movie started with the beautiful Serenity blowing Ian. I don't think there was much chemistry between them but the scene was still very well done. I've watched it several times and dislike Ian so it must be good.

Scene Two: Zana, looking more into the action than she did in her first performance in New Girls In Town took on the massive Lee as part of her screenwriting effort for a movie. She had some stretchmarks so those of you who are turned off by a gal looking like she's in heat, enjoying the sex, and totally into her performance yet has some minor blemish will want to skip this one. I'm pretty critical of such things normally but she was good enough to make me overlook the flaws. Fans of anal action take note that she took him all the way in her ass without a second thought.

Scene Three: No porn movie is ready until financing is secured. Rob gives yet another hilarious performance in his nonsex role before the trio of Lola, Nina, and Kyle get busy. Nina is from Texas so you can expect her to deliver the goods and Lola's probably never been lousy in a performance so lucky old Kyle wins-as do we. Yum!

Scene Four: Friday, a good looking gal who was left out of the boxcover credits for some reason, took on Jason and Pat as part of a casting couch scene. It had anal, a DP and ended in a sploogy facial. The sex was good enough that I wanted to see her on Saturday and Sunday as well.

Scene Five: Serenity and Kylie showed me that the director will frequently disregard the script at this point. No matter as this first time scene for them together was well done. I like both of them so there's no way I would've hated it unless it was so badly done that I thought they recorded it with the help of Leisure Time or Extreme Associates. Luckily, the production values were typical Wicked here and not like those others. It was obvious that the ladies wanted to work together and it showed.

Scene Six: In this last scene, the focus was on editing. After a funny bit with Anthony and Kaylynn, we get to see Alexa, Serenity and Randy do the deed. The sex was at least as well done as any of the other scenes but watch it before you listen to the commentary track as Jonathan was working out issues on it in regards to Alexa. (although it was funny as heck to listen to)

Summary: What could I write critical about this one? The women were hot, had fun, and all other aspects of this movie contributed to my enjoyment. It didn't hurt that I bought it on sale but it's well worth the going rate since it has such fantastic replay value. If I would have changed anything about it, I'd have added a scene on dvd mastering and perhaps marketing/reviews but those can be saved for a sequel.

The current online price of this one is currently a bit high but if you like Serenity, Jonathan's directing style or Wicked's past features, you really need to at least rent it. I'll be keeping my copy and enjoying it whenever I need a laugh or hot scene to pick my mood up.

Note to Wicked: While I would've liked the commentary to include Serenity, David was a good counter balance to Jonathan. Other minor details would be for you to include the non-sex roles in your credits. Otherwise it was one of the best dvd packages I've come across in awhile. Thanks!
