Barely Legal is one of my favorite series, not for the taboo aspect, but because it captures fresh talent in Clive McLean's unique, comforting photographic style.  While there are a lot of imitators, this is the series that defines the genre.  But even so, the formula doesn't always work, and this volume is a study in contrast between McLean's good scenes and his merely average ones.

Out of the five scenes, I'd say that two are genuine masturbatory material and the other three are typical Barely Legal filler material.  The first good scene stars Kiwi Sweet, a Southern ebony cutie with a nice ass (baby's truly got back!) and a large, firm rack.  As an aspiring actress, she goes to the home of a Hollywood director (Julian, who has more ink now than the Sunday comics) and within seconds is sucking his famously huge member.  It's a good interracial scene since there's plenty of eye candy, from BJ with eye contact to the huge penetrations to the brief-but-oh-so-soft titfuck.  It slows down a little while she rides him on the couch, but toward the end, the intensity picks up and the two seem to be genuinely enjoying themselves.  Unfortunately, the facial turned out to be mostly a dud, only a few pearls on that necklace.

The other scene I enjoyed was the "my girlfriend from the Midwest comes to California" girl-girl fantasy that seems to be a popular setup throughout the barely legal genre.  Not only does the outdoor, sunbathing encounter show off the teens' big, natural tits, but it's a fairly enthusiastic matchup too.  No lipstick pussy eating here; there's some serious, spread-wide-open activity going on.  The use of toys is effective without going overboard and turning it into an obvious Doc Johnson exhibition.  Despite the fakey ending orgasms, it's great fantasy material to see mutual masturbation and tribadism in addition to the standard girl-girl stuff.

As for the filler scenes, they begin with a housekeeper-husband fantasy with pert-breasted blonde and an aging Bobby V. that has the ingredients (location, natural body, big dick, good positions) of a great scene.  But it just isn't visually exciting to me and the facial is disappointing (it sounds like Bobby enjoys it, but there's very little, um, volume).  Next, being a fan of Jenna Haze, I was really looking forward to her scene.  But it turns out to be a fairly standard fuck & suck scene without much heat (or lube--it looks like there's little or no moisture going on), at least until the end when the excitement picks up a with a nice doggy and a good facial.  The wet blankets of the scene?  No anal (no anal in the whole video for that matter) and a self-induced pop-shot on Jenna's face.  Finally, Hungarian blonde Lolita plays a bartender who gets it on with customer Carlos--a pretty standard and uninteresting Europorn scene, with only her glasses wearing providing a minor rise.

While Hustler gets a pat on the back for a good behind-the-scenes featurette included on the disc (even though it's not BTS for Barely Legal 20), they get a "what the fuck were you guys thinking?" when it comes to the mandatory, unskippable phone sex and penis enlargement pills ads before you can play anything.  Even though the folks at Larry Flint Publishing have since discontinued the practice, that's two minutes and twenty seconds you'll never get back each and every time you want to play this particular DVD. 

Overall, I think this volume is a good rental candidate--none of the sex scenes are bad and a couple of them are pretty entertaining.  It may not be a permanent addition to your collection, but between the two solid scenes and the behind-the-scenes featurette, you have at least 30 minutes of great trademark Clive McLean/Barely Legal material and another hour of watchable yet unremarkable footage of porn newcomers.
