Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. Most of the scenes were grainy, had some lighting issues, and color saturation, not to mention shimmer and other problems. The stereo sound was often hollow or otherwise marred by fans of Jenteal aren't going to find much better versions of these scenes.
Body of Review: Jenteal was one of the more attractive gals of porn a number of years ago. Blonde, lean, and all natural without a thousand tattoo's, she became one of the most popular Vivid contract performers after appearing elsewhere (including Evil Angel) and seemed to enjoy both lesbian as well as guys in her bedroom antics. In Ultimate Jenteal, we get to see 10 of her scenes which is kind of a treat considering how much the individual movies would've cost. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by movie, director, and cast, keeping in mind that most of the scenes had condoms and they were oral/straight only:

Scene One: Open Wide: D-Toni English: Jenteal, Ruby, and Felecia had a lesbian scene in an office while George Kaplan watched like a gentleman. Subpar lighting weakened it a bit but otherwise veggie fans should like it.
Scene Two: Bedlam: D-Paul Norman: Jenteal, Nikki, and Felecia had a lesbian scene on a bed that also had weak lighting and the grain/color saturation suffered. Not bad but not great warmth either.
Scene Three: Censored: D-Michael Zen: Jenteal and TT had a scene on a bed while Dyanna Lauren watched. Finally some meat! The picture had a red tint to it but the oral and straight sex wasn't bad-she looked yummy.
Scene Four: Dirty Little Secrets: D-Toni English: Jenteal and Brad had a scene in a medical office that looked good (by comparison) on technical qualities and wasn't bad sexually either. Oral and straight.
Scene Five: Jenteal: Extreme Close-Up 2: D-Paul Thomas: Jenteal and Janine went at it on a bed. What can I say except-cool! These were two of my favorites back in the mid-90's and even the technical limitations didn't bug me.
Scene Six: First Impulse: D-Dyanna Lauren: Jenteal and Tony had a scene in a campground at night by a fire. I can forgive the technical limitations here because taping by a fire at night is something that few porn directors ever get right, especially at night. Oral and straight only with a condom (like most of the scenes with guys) and some chemistry as well.
Scene Seven: My Secret Life: D-Toni English: Jenteal and Brad paired up again with this time being at a photoshoot. This was the best looking scene of the show, by far, with only minimal grain. The sex looked good and warm too with an erotic warm-up. Yum!
Scene Eight: Open Wide: D-Toni English: Jenteal and Jon outside by a pool. It also looked good even if the same level of warmth wasn't present. Not bad.
Scene Nine: Stardust: D-Michael Zen: Jenteal and Alex had a short scene on a stage. The sex was better than the lighting here. Fair.
Scene Ten: Tangled Web: D-Toni English: Jenteal, obviously not satisfied by the short scene last time, must've insisted on having Jon come back once more. Blindfolded on a bed, the two had a better time this go around. Not bad (but again, grainy).
Summary: Jenteal has had some better scenes with Vivid but these weren't bad, even with the multitude of technical limitations. My biggest problems other than said limitations is the dvd cover advertising stars that are only present in the bonus scenes. Because of that misrepresentation (and the technical issues), I'm dropping the rating down to Rent It.
