menu screen Synopsis:
Four women (Pia Snow, Anna Ventura, Victoria Knoll and Jacqueline Brooks) are going camping in the woods to do some photo shoots and have some fun.  While there they spark the interest of a local scout master (Ron Jeremy) and come across an old assumed abandoned house of S&M.

Audio/Video:
Bad Girls is presented with an English 2.0 Mono track, which sounds like it is the original audio track for the film.  The audio is decent for it's age and the limitations of the source material are very evident.  The dialog is clear and can be heard at all times.  VCX hasn't included any foreign language tracks or subtitle options for the feature film.

Bad Girls is presented in the full screen aspect ratio of 1.33:1.  I'm not sure whether this is the original aspect ratio for the film or not.  If the film has been cropped it is not immediately evident from this print.  As far as VCX's titles go as far as the video is concerned, this one is in decent shape, however it does appear to have come from a VHS master.  There are minimal artifacts and occasional video glitches throughout the film.  Occasionally very small pixels are evident in moments of very rapid movement.  The colors are also slightly lighter than they should be especially the black levels.  The film is definitely watchable, however it is no where near the quality that companies like VCA, NuTech and I-Candy are presenting on their classic titles.

screen shot Special Features:
As with most VCX releases, there are no extras available from the main menu.  However, on this title, if you watch the film past the end credits you'll find trailers for F and Ultra Flesh.  I wish, if nothing else, VCX would start including the original theatrical trailers for their classic titles.

Disc Design/Navigation:
This disc is designed in the standard manner of VCX discs, which means it has simple and functional non-animated menus.  They work but they leave a lot to be desired as far as aesthetics go.  There are eight chapters available from the chapter menu and nine chapter stops within the feature film itself.  The chapters are identified by a still from where they go to.  There is a time code for the feature film encoded on the disc.

General Review:
Bad Girls is one of the true classics of adult cinema and is a great example of why I love films from the Golden Age of adult films.  The film was made back when the creators were trying to make a real X-rated film and not just a collection of sex scenes.  It features a fun story that allows for some true eroticism.  The story is also a part of the film.  It isn't just filler between the sex scenes so that the film can be considered a feature.  The sex scenes fit in with the story instead of being placed in where they don't fit.  There are several tease sequences mixed in with the film as well to add to the fun.

screen shot The cast looks good and gives some great sexually charged performances.  The four female leads are great and give as much heat in their teases as they do in their sex scenes.  Viewers and fans of B-movies may be interested to note that Pia Snow is known in mainstream films under the name Michelle Bauer, where she has starred in numerous horror and sci-fi films.  The male cast looks good as well and although still hairy, the younger Ron Jeremy present here is much better on the eyes than he will become with time.  The cast does a decent job acting as well.

The sex scenes are great albeit short.  Some of them are very short, which may bother some viewers.  The sex scenes also don't include every act possible.  Instead they include just what fits into the scene, which raises the value of them as a whole.  For the most part the sex is tame and this film can be enjoyed by most couples but there is one scene that borders on being a coercion scene, which might bother some viewers.  It is no where as bad or brutal as the coercion scenes in classics like Taxi Girls or A Dirty Western though and there is no violence present in it.  The sexual themes in the film are vaginal sex with pussy eating, female masturbation, lesbianism, pussy fingering, blow jobs, an orgy, hand jobs, titty fucking and male masturbation.  For viewers that care about condom use, there are no condoms used in the film.

The film features some great locations for not only the sex scenes but for the non-sex portions of the film as well.  The locations add to the overall affect of the film as you are allowed to immerse yourself in the fantasy being portrayed instead of being distracted by common or inappropriate locations and sets.  The end result of all of these factors put together is an erotic and fun film that is sure to please any viewer that likes to have more than just sex in their adult films.

screen shot Scene Synopsis:
The first scene brings us Victoria Knoll and Richard Pacheco and starts out with some pussy eating before concluding with some vaginal sex.  The second scene and the third scene in the film are interlaced.  The second scene gives us Lee Carroll, Leslie Winston and John Leslie and consists of vaginal sex.  The third scene features Jacqueline Brooks masturbating.  The fourth scene presents us with Pia Snow and Anna Ventura in a scene that includes pussy eating and mutual masturbation.

The fifth scene gives us Jacqueline Brooks and John Leslie and starts out with some pussy fingering before it goes into some pussy eating.  The scene then goes into a blow job before concluding with some vaginal sex.  The sixth scene brings us an unknown female and Randy West and consists of a blow job.  The seventh scene presents us with an unknown female and an unknown male and consists of some pussy eating.

The eighth scene features Anna Ventura and Ron Jeremy and starts out with some pussy fingering before it goes into the pussy eating.  The scene then goes into a blow job before the vaginal sex.  The scene ends with some titty fucking.  The ninth scene features Pia Snow and Michael Snow and consists of a blow job.  The tenth and final scene presents us with Pia Snow, Anna Ventura, Victoria Knoll, Jacqueline Brooks, Sylvia Benedict, Michael Snow, Kevin James, Mike Ranger and an unknown female.  This orgy scene consists of female masturbation, male masturbation, hand jobs, pussy eating (female to female), vaginal sex and blow jobs.

Parting Thoughts:
Bad Girls is an excellent film from the Golden Age of adult cinema that is sure to please any fan of films from that era.  It combines true eroticism with a fun story and sex scenes that fit in with the story.  Viewers that like long sex scenes, nasty sex scenes or hate a plot will want to pass on this title.  Viewers that enjoy watching an adult film as a film will love this title and shouldn't hesitate to pick it up.
