* DIRECTOR: Paul Thomas. * DURATION: See below. * STARRING: Dyanna Lauren, Melissa Hill, Missy, Stephanie Swift & Tricia Devereaux.
Bad Wives is a Vivid feature with an impressive cast, and is also considered a porn classic. Unfortunately, like most classics it’s not everything it’s cracked up to be. Disenchanted with their mundane lives, housewives Dyanna and Melissa try something different, but not everything goes to plan thanks to supermarket wild-child Steven St. Croix ...
It seemed fairly run-of-the-mill to me – more elaborate, well-filmed and well-acted than a normal porn film, but nothing spectacular. In particular, a number of non-sex parts dragged out and I thought the ending was a disappointment (but I won’t spoil it). The sex itself was pretty good for Vivid, and there was quite a lot of it; the cast was good too.
I thought I’d point out andyblake’s review, for his warning about the excessive cutting of the movie. I haven’t seen the VHS version so I can’t comment on what’s been lost from the original movie, but this might explain why I wasn’t tremendously impressed. Something to be aware of at any rate.
Overall, I found Bad Wives a fairly mundane feature. The cast looked good and acted very well but the plot and the sex could have been better. Vivid should not cut any of their future releases – there’s simply no reason to and it can only lower their reputation.
SCENE 1: Tricia Devereaux & Tony Tedeschi.
Tricia looks a little odd here, I think it was her hair. She has beautiful natural breasts and looks great giving head; she wears glasses for most of the scene (but what’s with the watch?). She has a decently-filmed scene (condom) with Tony. The beating heart sound effect and the on-screen angle indicator were annoying. Tony cums in her mouth and on her cheek. Warm.
SCENE 2: Melissa Hill, Stephanie Swift & Steven St. Croix.
Stephanie, a cute young-looking girl with glasses, blows Steven while Melissa watches. Melissa has lovely red hair (there aren’t enough redheads in porn) and is a strong performer. The girls get into each other a bit as well as blowing and screwing Steve. Steve pulls out of Melissa to cum on Stephanie’s mouth and hair. I wasn’t aroused by the hanging meat carcasses.
SCENE 3: Dyanna Lauren & Jon Dough.
Dyanna has a strange face but a great body and I like her full implants. She blows Jon on a staircase and screws him in the lounge; the scene inter-cuts with Melissa Hill & Tony Tedeschi. The action in both is fairly good (the music isn’t). Jon fingers Dyanna’s ass and screws her on the stairs. He cums in her mouth and on her chin. This scene did feel heavily edited.
SCENE 4: Melissa Hill & Tony Tedeschi.
Melissa does a great job with Tony and the soft filter on the filming seemed to work to the scene’s advantage. The lighting was also slightly better than Dyanna’s scene. They have sex in a lounge, leading to a very weak shot from Tony in Melissa’s mouth. Melissa turned in a good performance, Tony didn’t quite seem enthused.
SCENE 5: Missy, Tricia Devereaux & Tony Tedeschi.
Tricia’s back (with the glasses!) with overworked Tony; they’re joined by blonde Missy, who looks good. Tony rims Tricia while Missy watches. Tony blindfolds Tricia with his tie and feeds her his dick while Missy plays with Tricia half-heartedly. Missy seems more excited by the anal sex. Tony cums on himself weakly, a bad ending to an otherwise hot (again edited) scene.
SCENE 6: Dyanna Lauren, Melissa Hill & Steven St. Croix.
After a long but reasonably good set-up, the girls turn the table on St. Croix. They wrestle with him and ‘submit’ him to a torrid threesome. The highlight of the scene was the hot anal sex with Dyanna on the receiving end. I had a weak heart watching that! Steven shoots a fair (slo-mo) load on Dyanna’s back, and Melissa gives some postcum head. Good lingering, until Steve kisses Melissa.
