Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced and I didn't notice any background noises. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks very nice. There's very good care put towards the lighting as well as a clear picture. There are a couple places with a little camera motion, but they're very minor and barely interfere with the movie at all.
The Movie: The Bartender collects five tales that revolve around the bar. Maybe it's a customer getting picked up by the bartender or maybe it's the customer making the move on the bartender. Either way, there's a nice little setup for each scene before moving into the action.
|Scene 1 – Maddy O'Reilly and Bill Bailey|
Cute brunette Maddy starts out talking about how she went out to her favorite North Hollywood bar with her friends and caught the eye of a bartender she's been eying for a bit. Bartender Bill gives her a few drinks through the night, and when the bar clears out she makes her move, showing him how she isn't wearing any panties and sucking his finger. Bill leans across the bar to kiss her as the other customers start heading out except for one of her friends who gets busy with Chris Cock further down the bar letting him suck her tits and play with her pussy. Maddy climbs onto the bar to kiss Bill as he plays with her pussy before rolling around so he can eat her. Bill joins her on top of the bar for Maddy to suck his cock before he spoons her. He gets down to fuck her missionary style as the other couple heads out before Maddy rides him cowgirl style. Bill also takes Maddy from behind before they go back to missionary as she lays back on a barstool. Finally Maddy gets down for a nice facial finish.
|Scene 2 – Gracie Glam and Anthony Rosano|
After learning her man was cheating on her, Gracie heads to the bar to get drunk and have a one-night stand. She mopes more than a little at the bar, so bartender Anthony gives her one on the house as well as a willing ear. Soon after Gracie's sitting on Anthony's lap kissing him and letting him grope her ass before she lays back to let him eat her. She gets on all fours for him to eat her from behind while showing off her killer ass and gives him some nice head in return before moving up to ride him cowgirl style. Anthony also takes Gracie doggie style and spoons her before they finish fucking missionary style. Finally Gracie gets down for a nice facial finish.
|Scene 3 – Cassandra Nix and Xander Corvus|
Cassandra talks about how as a bartender at an airport bar she meets lots of traveling salesmen and ends up hooking up with Xander in the back of the bar after closing down. She kisses him and helps him out of his pants so she can drool over his cock as he fucks her face and throat. Cassandra gets on all fours for Xander to tongue and play with her holes from behind before he fucks her while thumbing her ass. She sucks and strokes him a little more before riding him in the cowgirls with a little action on her back and side mixed in. Xander makes sure to give her plenty of ass play as they fuck, and gives her one last pop on her pussy after cumming in it. After an editing cut a little bit of a white cum-like substance is visible on Xander's stomach and in Cassandra's pussy.
|Scene 4 – Ana Foxx and Rico Strong|
Black Ana talks about how she couldn't help but hit on the bartender when she was out with her girlfriends. Rico plays around with the girls plenty verbally before Ana sneaks around and under the bar to free Rico from his pants and start sucking his oversized black cock. She eagerly gobbles his knob with a little ball sucking and stroking mixed in, and makes sure to break out her titties as well. Ana finally takes Rico's load in her mouth before showing up again between her girlfriends letting them know she needs a shot and giving each of them a kiss.
|Scene 5 – Juelz Ventura and Rocco Reed|
Heavily tattooed raven-tressed Juelz talks about fucking a regular at the bar she worked at to finish things out. After joining Rocco in a short and chatting with him a bit more she locks up and they share another. Soon after they're kissing as Juelz sits on the bar before helping each other strip down so Rocco can eat her box. She sucks his rod in return while giving him some great eyes before laying back on a bar chair to let Rocco fuck her missionary style. Rocco also gives it to Juelz from behind before they move onto the bar so she can ride him cowgirl style. Finally Juelz sucks and strokes him to a nice pop in her mouth that she plays with a little.
The Bartender is another very nice release from Smash Pictures. The setups are nicely done and are just enough to give each scene a little personality without getting in the way of the action. They're also helped out very nicely by a decent sized supporting cast that gives the bar locations a bit of substance rather than leaving them feel like a generic porn set. The sex is nicely captured, with plenty of chemistry that should work for both strokers as well as couples. Maddy O'Reilly starts things off plenty hot with Bill Bailey, and gives me the feeling that she's a star one should really keep an eye on. As always Gracie Glam is plenty hot, and turns out a great scene with the equally reliable Anthony Rosano. I'll admit to being a bit surprised by Cassandra, as facial piercing is normally a big turn off for me, but her beautiful eyes quickly drew me in and she turned out a great fuck with Xander. The cream pie was a bit of a disappointment for me, as it appeared to need a little extra help after the camera panned away, but with how Xander's cock was throbbing and the small pop he let go on her pussy I do think this was an authentic cream pie. Ana's behind the bar blowjob with Rico was a lot of fun, and although I'm not a fan of heavily inked girls, Juelz is definitely the exception to the rule due to her great eyes, smile, and excellent energy. The Bartender is a fairly simple release, but also one that's more than effective and well worth checking out.
The Extras: Trailers are included for eight other Smash Pictures releases. The photo gallery lasts five and three quarter minutes. There's also a behind the scenes featurette, commercials, and since this is a Smash release, the ability to watch the movie with or without the story.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts thirty seven minutes. Bill starts out working with Jim on their setup before Jim chats with Maddy about her background and getting into the business, as well as sharing one of her bar stories and talking about flashing. She moves on to give Jim a little show on the bar before Gracie talks about herself, the industry, and her future plans in addition to giving a nice little solo show. Cassandra talks about getting into the industry, her name, and what she hopes for the future before playing with herself for Jim and his camera. Ana talks about how fresh she is and why she got in, her family, and what she's hoping for the future before putting on her solo show. Juelz talks about where she's from, why she first got in, baseball, anal sex, and dancing before giving her show. This is a great behind the scenes featurette. Jim does every bit as great of a job chatting with the girls as he does capturing them masturbating, and brings out a few great stories. This is a great behind the scenes featurette that's well worth checking out.
Condom Usage: None
Final Thoughts: If you're into the cast this one's worth the purchase, but if not it's still a very solid rental.
Note to Smash Pictures: After a little time away from your movies, it's nice to come back to them and see that you're products are stronger than ever. Nice job!
