XCritic's Advice: Recommended



Genre: Feature

Director: Michael Raven

Cast: Devon, Billy Glide, Samantha Stylle, Mr Marcus, Keri Windsor, Chennin Blanc, Sydnee Steele, Evan Stone, April Flowers, Bobby Vitale

Length: 81.5 minutes

Date of Production: 10/9/00

Extra's: 5 unrelated bonus scenes, short Devon biography, positions room (go to the types of sex acts you want without scanning), photogalleries, bloopers reel, double sided dvd cover, spam

Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.85:1 ratio widescreen color. It looked very grainy to me with too much color bleed but Vivid swears to be working on making better future releases (and they've improved their extras over recent years so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt). The sound was in stereo with most of the audio coming out of the center channel. The music was cheesy and forgettable but not as loud as some earlier (and recent) Vivid releases. Fair at best here.

Body of Review: Before Devon was a contract performer for Digital Playground, she worked with a number of other companies, including Vivid. She's a blonde with a tight body and it's easy to see why so many men like her. While I prefer her in such large budget features as Rush, I'd be lying if I said I didn't like her in a host of other movies too. One such movie is Barfly by Vivid. The movie really doesn't have a lot of plot or dialogue but it has a number of gals such as Devon and Sydnee Steele that are fan favorites all over the world.

Scene One: Devon, the large implanted blonde from the dvd cover, and Billy, super stud, did the deed in a bathroom. Yeah, there was a condom used (it's a fact of life at most of the high end companies) but the action was pretty warm for Devon fans. Oral and straight only though-as expected.

Scene Two: Samantha, not my favorite performer but also not a bad looking gal, took care of Marcus on a couch. The scene started with some slow kissing and massaging which was quite erotic to this reviewer and it ended with some slow anal after the usual action. Warmish if not warm.

Scene Three: Keri and Chennin had a lesbian scene on a bed. It included only a couple of toys and mostly licking and rubbing which was a nice change of pace. Not blazing hot but they looked to be having fun.

Scene Four: Sydnee and Devon took on Evan on a staircase at a home. I didn't like the way their implants looked here but as a fan, I was pretty worked up at seeing them together with the legendary Evan. No anal needed to make me happy here and the threeway was very warm.

Scene Five: April, a gal that always seems to be reinventing herself with her young, tight look, took care of porn vet Bobby outside in the back of an SUV. While only oral and straight, it seemed like a grudge fuck for a few moments with it's intensity. Had the intensity lasted the entire scene, I'd have said it was the best one here but the heat came and went for some reason. Still pretty good though.

Summary: If you're looking for a heavy plotted porn to enjoy, this won't be it. The sex is broken up by a small bit of dialogue at a bar with little rhyme or reason but it gives fans a chance to clean up or to jump back in on later viewings. If the technical issues had been less evident, I'd have suggested this as a highly recommended release but as it stands, the movie gets a respectable Recommended which is still pretty good, for this fan.
