Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. It looked great with few problems-typical of Wicked's newer releases. The sound was in either 5.1 remastered Dolby Digital stereo English or 2.0 English. The 5.1 track was the better of the two, even if there wasn't a lot of separation between the channels. The vocals and music were quite crisp and clear though on both tracks.

Body of Review: Ask anyone which company makes the best high end porn features and the vast majority of knowledgeable people will tell you Wicked Pictures. There are some up and comers out there but in terms of production values, dvd extras, and beautiful contract women (not to mention talented directors and crew), Wicked kicks ass. In their most recent release, About A Woman, they take a look at a woman executive played by Devinn Lane, who encounters a moral dilemma at work involving a new employee, as well as her own choices in life. The sex is generally very well done within the confines of what you'd expect from a Wicked pictures release, but the story was also handled quite well with most of the performers handling their lines of dialogue very professionally. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: Devinn, one of the hotter Wicked contract gals, and Nakita, had a scene at a booth in a lesbian bar. The two licked, sucked and fingered each other to orgasm. Worked for me! Yum!
Scene Two: Nicole, one of the more sexually aggressive women in the jizz bizz, did her real life hubbie, Voodoo, in an erotic scene in a bathtub. Oral, straight and anal here with all the chemistry and heat the two usually generate. Warm!
Scene Three: Aria, another strong woman in porn, and Brad (one of the better director's at Wicked), had a scene in bed. The music was distracting but the action was solid. Great eye contact by the young bodybuilding gal made it better than average.
Scene Four: Devinn had a solo scene in bed with herself this time. I would've preferred it last much, much longer but it was interesting to watch.
Scene Five: Stormy, another Wicked contract hotty, and Barrett, had a scene in a living room. I've always liked her long blonde locks of hair and curvy body and this scene, while not her best work, was very strong with loads of replay value. Oral and straight sex with a condom but some heat and energy too.
Scene Six: Devinn, looking even better in this scene, and Jessica, a hot red head, had a lesbian scene. A lot of people have fussed at Devinn for not doing guys on screen (she did recently) but I thought this was her best scene to date. Both of the ladies looked great and appeared to have lots of fun. Hot!
Summary: Even if you hate the non-sex parts of porno's, this one had some proof that companies aren't always requiring the talent to cold read their lines just before the shoot. For those who simply don't want a story based porno to watch, you can always skip it but it'd be your loss. On the other hand, the sex had lots of replay value with hot looking women and energy to boot so along with the great picture and sound, I thought this was worth giving a rating of Highly Recommended to. A few lines were flubbed that the editor didn't catch and a bit of grain popped up once or twice but this had a lot of value for the price.
