Beautiful/Nasty is an all girl, all sex film with no attempt at a plot with some dressing room footage between the sex scenes.
Beautiful/Nasty is presented in the full screen aspect ratio, 1.33:1, which appears to be the original aspect ratio for the film. The picture quality is flawless, with no blemishes or artifacts present anywhere. The color levels are perfect and video quality doesn't get much better than this.
The available audio tracks are a 2.0 English Stereo track and a 2.0 English Commentary track. The original English track works perfectly. The music doesn't drown out the few bits of dialog. As there is not much dialog, those who don't speak English well, won't miss much if listening to the English track. The commentary track's levels are poorly set. The commentary is at almost the same volume as the original English track so the running commentary can get drowned out at times by the film. There are no other language tracks and no subtitle options available.
There are five chapters available from the main menu for Beautiful/Nasty, which is not enough for decent navigation through the sex scenes available in the film. For decent navigation there should have at least been 12 chapters, minimum. There is a time code for this film, so time searching is also available.
There are many extras included on the disc for Beautiful/Nasty. First up, the 2.0 English Commentary track with Devinn Lane and Julia Ann is mostly a fluff track, but some useful information is given and the track is fun to listen to. Behind the Scenes Stills consists of 49 pictures on a track from the making of Beautiful/Nasty. Audio Bios consists of audio information, video, a picture, text info and a Wicked Filmography for stars Devinn Lane, Julia Ann, Amber Michaels, Lola and Charlie. Promotional Material is the Wicked Adult Convention Reels from 1998, 1999, 2000 and the Essensual Elements Reel. Photo Gallery consists of 30 pictures on a track from the feature film. AVN & Wicked Awards - Winners and Nominations consists of a text track with the Wicked Pictures AVN Awards Nominations then Winners from the years of 1994 to 2001. The Company Profile consists of a text/audio track with Wicked Pictures company info. Available trailers are for: Flashpoint, Satyr, Vengeance, Working Girl, Knockout, Crazed, Dreamquest and The Bride of Double Feature. The last extra is an unlisted advert for the Free Speech Coalition. Overall, a mixed bag of special features, some which compliment the film and others that have nothing to do with it. The few that do have to do with the feature film do compliment the film well, especially the Commentary track. There is nothing here to base a rental or purchasing decision on, but some do add to the viewing experience.
DVD-ROM Special Features:
The DVD-ROM features are the Wicked Casino and the Wicked Web Hyperlink. As I don't have a DVD-ROM drive, I have no further information on these features.
Beautiful/Nasty is an all-girl, all sex film which delivers in full to the viewer. The sex is great, mostly composed of threeways, with some standard twosomes, solo masturbation and orgy scenes. The sex scenes are very satisfying and long. The sex is more on the nastier side, but not so much that I think it will bother viewers that prefer tamer sex. The scenes offer oral action, toy action, finger action and some anal action as well. A nice side to each scene is there is more of a conclusion to each scene than one usually gets with lesbian scenes. Instead of just fading out during the scene, each scene builds to an orgasm for each of the participants.
Each scene is a stand alone piece which offers no set up, just hot lesbian action in different locations. The cast looks good throughout the film with Devinn Lane and Charlie being the stand-out cast members. With a running time of almost two hours, this film gives the viewer plenty of action to enjoy.
What else is there to say, hot women having hot sex with each other, why are you still reading? You should be renting or purchasing this film by now.
The Money Shot:
A very well done lesbian film that gives to the viewer exactly what it promises. Highly recommended for fans of all-girl sex that don't want a plot getting in the way of the hot action. Those that require a plot to enjoy their porn or aren't into lesbian action probably will want to pass on this one.
