The Short Story
Initial Expectations: The Dark Brothers put out some wonderfully creative movies and there's some great anal talent here. I can't help but have very high expectations for this release.
Initial Reaction: There's some very nice creativity to the movie, but the sex barely makes it to the average mark overall.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a bit of creativity with their porn
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a straightforward movie or heavy anal action
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty impressive for the age of the movie. The audio is pretty clear and well balanced, and I didn't notice any background noises. The video is presented in the full frame format, and looks pretty good. It has a little grain, which is to be expected with the age of the movie, but is well lit and smooth.
Music: The music has a definite nineties feel, but doesn't feel like the typical porno music. It's a bit loud, but fits the creativity of the movie very well.
Menus: The main menu is okay, and gives a few clips from the movie along with a fairly artistic look. The chapter menu is completely generic, and just lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The FeatureMaybe Rip Hymen's crazy, or maybe he's sane. There's plenty of people who weigh in on both sides of the equation. He thinks he's an “agent” who helps get women lots of money, but he also has flashbacks to time in an institution. Regardless of where he is, he's sure that the soul resides in the colon, and there's one sure way to get to a woman's soul.
|Scene 1 – Heather Lere and Tianna|
Long haired blonde Heather gets it on with short haired blonde Tianna in a dumpster. They aggressively kiss and suck each other's tits before Heather bends over for Tianna to tongue fuck her ass with Tianna mixing in a little spanking and pussy eating. Heather bends over to eat her while fingering her ass in return, and even mixes in a little ass eating before laying back for Tianna to fuck her with a black dildo while working a smaller dildo into her own ass. Tianna goes back to eating Heather so she can use both toys on herself and rides Heather's tongue before fucking her doggie style with a strap-on. Finally, the girls kiss briefly while holding each other before the scene fades out.
This is a pretty hot scene. It's a little chopped up to start, which I know will annoy some people as many don't want sex interrupted to see a guy talking. Once it gets into the hard and heavy sex, however, this is a hot scene. There's some very nice intensity between Tianna and Heather, but unfortunately Heather only gives for the ass and never receives. Tianna tries to make up for it nicely with plenty of fingers and toys in her ass as well as taking a double penetration with the toys, but I still would have liked to have seen Heather get a little something in the can. The scene moves along at a very nice pace with slightly choppy editing, but works pretty good. This is a nice start to the movie.
|Scene 2 – Bionca, Tom Byron, and TT Boy|
Brunette nurse Bionca offers to show the guys her soul, with the action cutting right to her sucking Tom while TT eats her ass and fingers her pussy from behind. TT moves on to fuck her doggie style before she climbs up to ride Tom cowgirl style with TT joining in to DP her. Finally, the guys pull out and both pop on Bionca's butt before fucking her a little more.
This is a pretty hot scene. Bionca starts it out with a nice tease and does a great job taking it in each of her holes. The scene moves along a little fast due to the choppy editing and quick start, but Bionca gets into it enough that I was able to get into the scene pretty well. This is a pretty good scene.
|Scene 3 – Krisstarah Knight and Mark Wallice|
Bottle blonde Krisstarah leads a duck on a string around Mark, who's sitting back in a chair wearing only underwear and a duck mask before she drops down to start sucking his cock. She gets up and rides him reverse cowgirl style as he continues to quack away before she turns around for a cowgirl ride. Krisstarah also lets Mark take her doggie style in each of her holes before he lays her back and strokes himself off on her tits and face.
This is a pretty good scene that's pure Dark Brothers. The duck thing is definitely a bit oddball, but there's also some darn hot sex. There's some nice energy and chemistry between them with Krisstarah also turning out some very nice vocals. This is a hot scene.
|Scene 4 – Nikki Wilde and Sebastian|
Dirty blonde Nikki lays back in a little black lingerie and fishnets as Sebastian eats her holes to start out the next scene. Sebastian also fingers her ass as he eats her, and Nikki keeps a couple fingers in her ass as she gets on top to suck his cock. She lays back for Sebastian to fuck her pussy as she fingers her ass, and strokes him off onto her tits and face to finish the scene out.
This is an okay scene. Nikki looks great, and I love how much she fingers her ass. Unfortunately, she never takes more than a finger in her ass and the scene is extremely short. With another few minutes and a cock in the ass, this could have been a darn hot scene.
|Scene 5 – Kelly Royce, Bau, and Wayne Summers|
Dirty blonde Kelly takes on Bau and Wayne, sucking one while the other fingers her holes, in a cheezy hotel room next. She gives the other a little head as well before letting them fuck her pussy missionary and both her holes doggie style. Finally she takes a pop on her back as well as one on her face.
This is an okay scene at best. Kelly looks darn good and takes it in each of her holes nicely. Unfortunately, neither of the guys brought much to the scene and the chemistry was fairly flat. She really seemed to have to work for the facial, and there was never anything to really draw me into the scene. This scene just didn't do much for me.
|Scene 6 – Debi Diamond, Blake Palmer, James Lewis, Tom Byron, and TT Boy|
Blonde Debi takes on spacemen Blake, James, Tom, and TT when they come through her bedroom window. She goes right to sucking cock as they reach down to play with her pussy, and rolls onto all fours so they can fuck her doggie style as she keeps sucking cock and reaches back to finger her ass. Tom pops first after fucking her pussy missionary style, and then keeps giving it to her doggie style. The guys move on to fuck her ass from behind as well, with the guys mixing in a little more missionary for her pussy and a pop or two on her face.
This is an okay scene. Debi looks great and takes her fingers in her ass great, but when it comes to a cock in her ass there's only one guy who tries and he can barely keep it hard. The focus is much more on her pussy than her ass, and although she sucks a mean cock, the scene seemed overly shot and not as concerned with anal sex as I would have hoped for the final scene. This is an okay scene, but I've seen Debi turn out a lot better anal scenes than this.
Between the Cheeks 2 leaves me with very mixed feelings. On one hand, I love the creativity of the movie. Rip Hymen adds both humor and tension in the lead role, and the story is very well done being both simple and complex at the same time. On the other hand, the sex lacks a bit. It often has a bit of intensity to it, but the focus seems to be more on anal fingering than actual anal fucking. The editing is a bit choppy at times, and combined with with how short the movie is, leaves the scenes feeling like they could have easily lated twice as long. All that said, compared to a lot of the other porn in the early nineties, it's easy to see why Between the Cheeks 2 was thought of as highly as it was. The movie is unique and creative, and although the sex could have been better it never feels like anybody was phoning it in. If you're curious about The Dark Brothers or just looking for something a little different, Between the Cheeks 2 should be well worth checking out.

The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, lesbian, rimming (female > female), toys, anal, and DP
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many VCA DVDs can be found online for between about $6 and $25 with many stores offering them for under $15. At the low end this one's a decent buy. The technical aspects are pretty average and there's no effort put into the extras, but the movie has some decent sex and is very creative. There's nothing here to justify the big bucks, but for the low end this one should give you some bang for your buck.
Note to VCA: If you're going to make such a big deal on the cover about this being a major classic release, please put a little effort into the extras.
