Runtime: 3hrs 47min Region: 0 Audio/Video: Aspect ratio: 4:3. Quality is average at best. Menu: The menu deserves special attention. This DVD contains whopping 16 scenes, but chapter selection menu only
offers access to every 4th scene. For example, if I want to view scene 7, my only option is to navigate to number 5 and fast-forward from there. This is absolutely unacceptable.
Before the scene breakdown, I'd like to point out that since A) I am not a walking porn talent database, and B) only three names are mentioned on the box cover art and none in the movie itself, I for the most part have no idea who participates in a certain scene, nor what original movie they come from, although some face are familiar, of course. Also, given the fact that there are 16 scenes in this compilation, I am keeping the descriptions and comments short. Okay, here we
Scene 1: Average looking blonde and a "stud" are doing it on a couch. Oral (BJ and pussy fingering), cowgirl, RC,
missionary, cumshot on her pussy. No anal. This looks to be a scene from some feature film. Vanilla sex, but the blonde
seems to be into the action. Score:
Scene 2: Gauge and some "stud" in a disco setting. BJ, missionary, RC, anal spooning anal, a facial. Oh yeah,
Gauge also takes a piss in between BJ and sex. Pretty good scene if not for the video quality. There is some very bright,
red light an fog used in the scene, and at times, you just can't see very well. Score:
Scene 3: Group sex action near a swimming pool. Three dudes, including Brandon Iron, and two girls: T.J. Hart and Terri Starr. We get full package: BJs, all kinds of positions, anal, DP. Two cum shots on TJ's tits; Terri also gets a facial. A good scene which is a bit spoiled by the fact that it's outside; we hear people talking in the background, water splashing, planes flying, dogs barking, etc. Score:
Scene 4: A couple on the bed. Spooning -> cowgirl -> BJ -> doggie -> cum shot on the thigh. Intercourse is with
condom. Could have been a nice scene because the girl seems to have fun. The guy, on the other hand, is too fucking loud
with his fake moans and groans. That basically ruins the whole thing. Score:
Scene 5: A chick and a dude in some kind of back alley outside. BJ -> mish. -> cowgirl -> cum shot (looks
accidental) -> cowgirl (very brief) -> 2nd cum shot (very weak). Strange scene because of how it's edited. I didn't like
it despite two money shots. Score:
Scene 6: A couple in the office (I think the dude is Alec Metro). Pussy eating -> BJ with some mouthfucking ->
missionary -> doggie -> RC -> Cum shot on the tits. The girl is beautiful but she is also 100% passive. Result: zzzz..
Scene 7: Expensive blonde with silicon tits and a good looking guy on an antique couch. BJ -> pussy eating ->
mish. -> RC -> standing doggie -> pop shot on the boobs. Condom was used in this scene. Hmm! Average at best.
Scene 8: This is a lesbian scene where two blondes -- one with huge, plastic boobs -- are playing domination
game. We get pussy eating, finger fucking, and strap-on fucking in mish. and doggie positions. I sort of liked this
sequence because it's somewhat humorous. Score:
Scene 9: Looks like Alec Metro is "auditioning" some amateur chick for a porn movie. They start with a BJ in a
public bathroom, and then "teleport" to some apartment. Pussy eating -> dildo drilling -> doggie -> RC (double-decker) ->
mish. -> pop shot on her stomach and chest. This gonzo scene is lacking energy. The girl shows no enthusiasm
whatsoever, although her pussy gets very wet. Also, no anal sex during porn auditioning is unheard of. Hehe! Score:
Scene 10: Randy Spears with a stunning, natural blonde. Unfortunately, tattoos all over her body ruin the
sex-appeal. BJ -> pussy eating -> cowgirl -> spooning -> cum shot on pussy. There is some heat in this scene, but only if
you like sterile, vanilla sex. Score:
Scene 11: A guy having some fun with a stripper. BJ -> sitting cowgirl -> RC -> pussy play + finger fucking,
rimming (m>f) -> missionary -> cum shot on chick's stomach. A dynamic, non-gonzo scene which could have been good if not
for some idiotic editing (i.e. cuts in the middle of the sentence and footage recycling). Plus, the girl said, "Cum
inside me". The guy replied, "Are you sure?". She confirmed, but he popped on her belly. What kind of bullshit is this?
Scene 12: Glamorous, blonde babe from Scene 7 returns, this time with another stud. Pussy fingering -> BJ ->
cowgirl -> RC -> missionary -> cum shot on blonde's snatch. This is all basic stuff. This girl's tough, dirty talk
sounded so fake that I didn't know what to do: to laugh, to cry or to puke. Condom was also used in this scene.
Scene 13: Some girl is being "processed" by the dude in uniform, in what looks like a prison. Strip-search exam
-> BJ -> sitting RC -> spooning -> standing doggie -> cum shot on girl's ass. Again, this is taken from an older video,
I believe. It's an okay scene but nothing special. A condom was used here as well. Score:
Scene 14: Alec Metro and his friend are "violating" some good looking blonde with huge knockers. There is a
variety of action here including anal. The guys fuck her one at a time because someone has to operate the camera. This is
probably the best gonzo scene on this DVD because it kind of has this realistic (amateur) vibe to it. I enjoyed this one.
Scene 15: Ian Daniels and sweet looking babe (called Allison) in a swimming pool. After oral work, they move onto
the solid ground to fuck in standing doggie and missionary including anal. Fuck session ends with the facial. Alex Metro
tunes in, receives short BJ, eats some pussy and briefly fucks Allison in mish., then pops on her fake boobies. An okay
scene, and this Allison has gorgeous body and butt, although her looks are severely damaged by the visible (boobjob)
Scene 16: An old school clip with some cheap SFX, featuring polished, blonde babe and a guy. We get usual oral
sex, cowgirl, missionary, money shot on the stomach; all accompanied by the most annoying techno-hard-rock music EVER.
Extras: Photo Slideshow
Well, there isn't much you can say about a compilation such as this. You have a couple of good scenes, there are some
average scenes, but mostly, it's filled with scenes that are below average. I also find this particular selection a bit
strange. Gonzo clips are mixed with the clips from 'softer' features. Why? This kind of variety will definitely make someone unhappy. Speaking of variety, we get to see just a couple of scenes with anal action, only one or two facials, and not one, good pop shot in the mouth. Also, the title "Barely Ripe Cherries" suggests that the movie features teens. I have seen maybe only some in this compilation. Granted, I didn't check their passports but the bottom line is that it's definitely not the kind of content I would expect from the title labeled "barely ripe". I am also disappointed with the fact that the clips have no credits to them. I have seen compilations where you are shown a caption that indicates what movie the clip is taken from and who the performers are. I am missing it here. The extras are lacking -- just a dozen of pictures or so -- but the thing that has upset me the most, is the fact that you can't access every chapter separately. I really can't comprehend the absurdity of this.
Very disappointing! The only thing that makes this DVD remotely interesting is that it's basically free.
