Audio/Video Quality: Presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, the picture is pretty good throughout the video. The lighting being different with each new vignette causes the look to be a little inconsistent. The audio is available in Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0. The only difference between the two that I could hear is the music is mixed for the different channels and some reverb on the scene intros.

Review: I'm not going to break this one down scene by scene because the scenes weren't that hot. I think the concept behind the movie is a good one and has been done a few times before by other people with mixed results. I would think the female performer choosing who she has a scene with would make it a hit no matter what, I guess I'm wrong, or maybe the choice wasn't completely all theirs to make. Who knows? The dialogue seemed very coached and scripted at times; this thought is illustrated in the behind the scenes feature where the director is telling Temptation to say she likes cum on Ice cream...she doesn't think that sounds like a tasty combo. Mild heat is generated in the girl-girl scenes with Aria, Flick, and Krystal in one and Taylor and Mary in the other. The first scene with Dee and Dolorian has the two girls play with each other, with good results, before Evan Stone comes in.Once the guy shows up, the scene slowly loses the momentum and heat the girls together had started. Mia Smiles has some nice tease footage in her intro which was promising but once again, when the actual scene starts, the action fizzles. The last scene with Sabrine Maui doesn't even seem like it belongs in this video since it doesn't follow the format all the scenes before it had. All but the last scene start with some slow motion images of the girl(s) in the scene with a voiceover talking about why they chose the partners they chose or what they would like done to them. The last scene just has the slo-mo tease footage and no explanation on why Sabrine chose her partner. My biggest gripe is that all of the scenes were run of the mill scenes with very few memorable moments. For those that like to know, condoms were used in all of the boy-girl scenes and the only anal was in the first girl-girl scene with Aria having a toy used on her. One annoying thing about the DVD I found while writing this review is, the chapter breaks seem randomly placed throughout the video; some take you to the tease footage while some take you to various points in a scene.

Overall Thoughts: The women look great, but the sex failed to deliver the excitement and energy that would be expected from two performers that truly enjoy having scenes with each other. If this is a continuing series, maybe Wicked should look into using the same premise only keep it girl-girl only. All in all, it's nice idea with some very cool possibilities it was just poorly executed. Skip It.
