Body of Review: Wicked Pictures, the undisputed champion of American feature porn, has made a number of spoofs and comedies over the years. In a take off of the old television show, The Twilight Zone, Wicked's premiere comedy director, Jonathan Morgan, made a cute little comedy awhile back called, Date From Hell featuring Jonathan himself as the narrator and the lovely Serenity as the lead female. Some of you will remember that she used to be one of their best contract performers, starring in many films such as XXX Training: Porno For Dummies, and she looked just as good here-in a full three scenes! Here's a quick breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: Serenity, playing a whiny cutie with a hot body, took on the somewhat slimy Tony on a first date. Oral and straight with a facial and she looked very cute. Some real energy made this one worth watching more than once.
Scene Two: Leanna, an implant queen who wore a great outfit to start (but only for a second or two), and Steve H. had a scene on a couch. There wasn't as much energy as the last scene but it was okay.
Scene Three: Serenity, in a short blue dress, and Ian in a dark room on a couch, did the deed. Oral and straight with a condom but I have to admit that he fit in here really well as the wacko date. Not bad at all.
Scene Four: Johnni, with big blonde hair to match her spirit, and Wilde, had a scene in a limo. The lighting was off, someone forgot to check the camera settings from what it looked like, but the sex was fun.
Scene Five: Mandi, a redhead with a lean body, and Steve D. had a scene in his dorm room. No condom was used and the sex had some chemistry between the two. Good scene.
Scene Six: Serenity and Johnni had a scene on the table. I liked seeing these two together but the scene was way too short to enjoy fully. Oral and a toy but not much else.
Summary: While Date From Hell was not the big budget extravaganza Wicked Pictures is known for, it was a pleasant little movie that gave me three Serenity scenes (well, 2.5 due to the length of the last one) which is enough for me to rate it as Recommended. Some fans of hers will rate it higher and if it had more of Jonathan's mugging or a full scene at the end, I'd have bumped it up myself. Fun to watch with some replay value.
