Extra's: min-biography of Jessica Drake (with direct to sex scene feature), wall to wall option (see just the sex without the plot), photogallery, three trailers
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. While there were issues with lighting that caused some minor grain, the majority of the movie looked crisp and clear. I didn't see any compression artifacts or other problems with the picture. The audio was presented in Dolby Digital stereo English. The vocal track was generally very clear as well but the music track was not the best. For the most part, the music track was generic porn but not bad.
Body of Review: Jessica Drake is currently a contract performer for Wicked Pictures but this is just a recent development in the career of the popular young redhead. Just a short time ago, she was a contract performer for the nice folks over at VCA Interactive, strutting her stuff in style after having spent a long time bouncing around making movies for a bunch of companies that never really focused on her enough. Formerly a resident of Texas, the gal knows how to enjoy herself on camera and is lucky enough to work with her significant other, the mighty Evan Stone (also from Texas), in scenes that always show some warmth. In a movie made last year for VCA, Midnight Kiss, she only had a single scene in a minimal feature concerning couples that interconnect by means of the aftermath of a party. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast, all of which were condom free:

Scene One: Olivia, a lean blonde gal with a growing following, and Mike, a veteran of porn that can act as well as he can screw babes (admittedly a rare talent these days), had a scene by a fireplace. He started it off by going down on her lovely crotch, savoring the moment by the looks of it, until she decided to give him a bit of oral loving as well. She gave him great eye contact and used both her hands in order to really warm him up for the scene yet he also handed her a vibrator to open her ass up with. When I first watched this one, I figured there was going to be a solid boning and to some extent, I was right. He took her doggy style first, plunging balls deep into her tight looking pussy then changed positions a few times. I then guessed he'd be hammering her ass but sadly, it went to a shot of her jerking him off to completion. Oh well, I'm not fixated on anal but it seemed like a sure thing .
Scene Two: Samantha, a blonde with a vocal attitude towards sex, and Steve, had a scene on a couch. She did him orally and he returned the favor, using his fingers to jerk her off a bit for the boning. He also got a taste of her ass before he started boning her pussy with his penis. It ended when he dropped a load on her face. This was not a bad scene but it might've been better if it were somewhat longer.
Scene Three: Dolorian, the leanest gal of the movie, sporting an all-natural body, took on Chris by the pool. He went down on her first, spending a lot of time to truly warm her up before she energetically inhaled him into her mouth. She obviously had fun with him, between using her mouth with hand action to the eye contact, it was clear she was talented in an oral sense. She took a hold of his member afterwards and guided it into her waiting pussy at which time he started getting more and more active on tapping it. She really appeared to get off at least once and took the facial like a champ. Yum!
Scene Four: Summer, a blonde gal that has never really been given a chance to shine, and Cheyne had the next scene on a bed. She had first honors, blowing him and proving her skills once and for all. The tongue-action on his nuts and shaft were solid with the hand assist nice too. He liked it enough that he spent some extra time going down on her before hammering away on her pussy like he was drilling for gold. He ended it by coating her mouth and surrounding area with a moderate sized load.
Scene Five: Jessica, looking as lovely as ever with her mane of red hair, her lean body and beautiful eyes, had a scene in bed with real-life husband Evan. She playfully sucked him off for a bit, using her hand to full effect but also maintaining the kind of eye contact that shows they care about one another (contrary to popular belief, couples in real life are great together on screen if recorded and not directed too much). She then sat on his lap, teasing the tip of his long shaft before letting him enter in any major way. He ended by dropping a large load on her mouth. This wasn't their best work but they're always fun to check out.
Summary: I'm going to rate this one as a Rent It although I think a lot of fans will appreciate the cast just fine. The plot was virtually nonexistent, the sex was warm but limited to a strict formula (granted, the cast made the most of it though), and the extras barely present. Compared to the many great VCA releases of the last few years, this was almost like a dry hump; it'll get you off but not as well as a good old-fashioned full-contact screw. I know most people will blame director Roy Karch for the problems, especially since the cast was so sexually talented, but I'm wondering if something else was going on with the budget (with Jessica featured on the DVD cover, I'd think two or more scenes with her would be fair to expect. Check it out if you're as much a fan of the cast as I am, just don't expect a whole lot beyond the basics.
