Extra's: This is one of Wicked Pictures' older releases and I thought the extras were going to be minimal at best. After all, Jenna works for another company now, had some hard feelings towards Wicked Pictures when she left, and the age of the movie, at nearly eight years old (a long, long time in terms of porn), made me think it'd be the generic extras Wicked Pictures offers. I was wrong, to an extent, as the DVD had both of Jenna's scenes extended with additional footage (yay!) and some 15.5 minutes of bloopers as well. While not an audio commentary and lengthy Behind the Scenes show, this added some value for me. They also included some photogalleries, Star Stats for Jenna Jameson, Davia Ardell, and Sindee Coxxx, promotional reels, Free Speech Coalition commercial, DVD-ROM extras (company profile, casino game, award winners, desktop backgrounds and weblinks), trailers to movies such as Hercules, XXX Training and Falling From Grace, and a double sided DVD cover.

Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the industry standard 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. Considering how old this movie is (it was made in 1995), it looked very good. There were a number of scenes where the lighting was off and that caused some grain to get in the way but much of the movie looked better than films shot recently. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English track but there was no separation between the newly enhanced channels. It was clear on the vocals and the music score was actually very appropriate much of the time, lending a feel for an old time release.

Body of Review: Wicked Pictures has long been known for it's feature releases, especially their comedies. They are also known for their lovely contract performers, including one that got away, Jenna Jameson. By combining these two aspects in a movie, Jenna and comedy, the company proved they knew what worked with a release from 1996, Silver Screen Confidential. I think it may be the last unreleased Jenna movie Wicked Pictures has although I also thought Jenna's Lip Service was so don't quote me. The movie had two plot threads that eventually converged; Jonathan Morgan as a fast-talking studio publicist (he should've won best actor at the AVN awards for it too) and Jenna as a tabloid reporter looking for a scoop. Set decades ago in Hollywood, the light-hearted show provided some good sex and humorous acting for your enjoyment. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:

Scene One: Davia, all dolled up like a star actress from the 1940's/50's, had a scene with Tony on the set of his movie. He went down on her, she returned the favor and then they screwed. It wasn't the hottest scene I've watched all week, by far, but fans of hairy pubic mounds will like her.

Scene Two: Sindee and Ariel, trying to get a contract with the studio, make Jonathan an offer he can't refuse; they jump his bones to show "they'll do anything" to get into the movies. Well, after some warmish oral, he gets into them both and they screw for a few minutes. It ends with his pop shot shared on both of their chests

Scene Three: Jenna, super hotty of porn, and aggressive TT, had a scene after an interview. She seduced him and the two had some solid oral before a heated screwing, which ended in a faceful of semen for the lovely young star. The bonus section had an extended version of this scene that lasted much longer (around fifteen minutes compared to under ten) and, to be frank, was much better. I'd have recommended that Wicked Pictures replace the original two bonus scenes and call this one a "Director's Cut" version but I'm not a marketing genius so I'm sure they had their reasons.

Scene Four: Davia, still going for the Marilyn Monroe look, made up with Jonathan, and the two had a fun scene on a couch. His comment, "Suck my dick like you're drowning and my balls contain oxygen" was a hoot, but there were so many other funny lines that I lost count. After the oral, she rode him like she was trying to get more oxygen and the scene ended with him jerking a load onto her face.

Scene Five: Chelsea, an attractive gal if you like her type, Paul and TT, had a scene on a couch. There was a lot of oral and straight but also anal with a DP! I think the scene would've been better if it had lasted longer but it was certainly a good one and ended like so many of you want, with her taking a double dosing from the guys.

Scene Six: Jenna, looking even better than in her first scene, took care of Peter on a bed. They each did oral on one another, with him doing the majority of work, and screwed in a couple of positions. It was a warm scene nonetheless and the extended version in the bonus section lasted a bit over nineteen minutes (as opposed to around ten minutes).

Summary: I think Jace Rocker won an award for the screenplay and Tony won for supporting actor (he was not at his best though) but it was nominated for a bunch of other awards too. I'm rating it as Recommended although Jenna fans will want to pick up a copy regardless of what I say since she looked at her peak here. Her acting ability at this point was limited, although she did much better than Peter North, but compared to the movies she makes these days, this is great.
