Monica Sweetheart (Cover Girl)
Lea De Mae
Themes: European, Dirty Talk
Platinum X Pictures has always been one of my favorite porn studios. Unfortunately, many of their releases have suffered from poor video quality. Some of their DVD's have weird-looking "halos" around the images on the screen which are highly distracting. This color problem was mostly limited to PXP's early movies, and by 2005, the problem seems to have been totally corrected. "Broken English," release number 78 by PXP, thankfully does not suffer from the halo problem.
This one has a great cover with Monica Sweetheart, and focuses on hot European babes. The cast, at first glance, does not really seem promising with the exception of Monica. I was also saddened to see that the late, beautiful Lea De Mae is in this movie; it was probably one of the last ones she would make. But, let's not focus on sad things-- after all, we have hardcore porno to review here!
Scene 1: Monica Sweetheart and a guy
Monica Sweetheart is a beautiful Czech superstar who should be familiar to most of you reading this review. She is probably the main reason why somebody would buy this disc. We meet Monica and soon learn the gimmick of this film; during the tease segment, a voice-over plays where the girl talks about her favorite things to do sexually in broken English, hence the title. If girls talking in sexy European accents is your thing, there is lots to enjoy here.
Monica can always be counted on to turn in a good scene, and this is no exception. She begins by admiring her beautiful self in a full-length mirror before orally pleasuring a guy laying on a bed. I really find the prone position to be the least attractive angle for BJ's, but Julian obviously disagrees. I guess he likes the girl to do all the work. Monica gives an average and rather unenthusiastic blowjob.
She moves to cowgirl vaginal, which is not that appealing of a position because we rarely get to see Monica's beautiful face, one of her best features. The sex begins to heat up as they move to spoon vaginal and anal. Monica easily accepts the dick in her ass as she moves to reverse cowgirl before dismounting for A2M.
Monica would look great doing just about anything. Her scene here is good, if somewhat uninspired. The saving grace of this scene is that Monica's in it, and that's a good thing. She can get away with giving average performances because she is so hot. She takes an ok facial splattering to end her scene as the camera fades out.
Scene 2: Sue Diamond and a guy
Sue is a Euro-girl that I have not had the pleasure of seeing before. She is a very attractive blonde girl, tall and sexy. She looks quite beautiful, but doesn't seem all that into the scene, especially the oral section, where she goes down on a seated guy in a chair. This, like the guy lying down, is probably the worst angle to shoot a blowjob. The girl cannot go very deep and we do not enjoy a very good angle of her face when it is bent over to access the dick.
Sue eventually gets fucked in missionary for a while, moaning and groaning the whole time mechanically like a good Euro-starlet. She never takes it in the ass during this short scene, which is disappointing, much like the watery load the guy deposits on her face. Sue Diamond is super-hot, but her scene here lacks any real passion.
Scene 3: Anna Nova and two guys
Anna Nova is a German starlet with giant fake boobs that has really been around the hardcore gonzo circuit. In most movies I've seen her in, she has looked a little rough, but here is quite fetching in a see-through white bodysuit which clings around her erect nipples.
She takes on two guys in a rather rough scene on a couch which starts out with some gagging blowjobs. The guys alternate between pounding her vag like animals and face-fucking her. All the while she is babbling incoherencies in German. All in all, the scene is pretty hot and Anna Nova does her best to act like a deranged wolverine in heat.
The guys proceed to double-fuck her pussy (DPP). Soon they move to anal in reverse cowgirl. Anna looks very nice with the white body-suit pulled up over her huge melons. She slaps her pussy and yells some more German things while the guys fuck her ass, with lots of A2M. They eventually move her to the anal piledriver position, a personal favorite. The guys try their best to drill her into the floor.
Anna moves back to the couch to take a standard DP for a long while (she's yelling dirty talk in German and English the whole time) before accepting the guy's come. They shoot two quite substandard loads which she swallows. Not a great end to a hot scene, but an adequate one.
Scene 4: Nomi and some guy
Nomi is a blonde, average-looking French girl whom I first saw in Red Light District's excellent "French Connexxxion." She gave an o.k. performance in that film, nothing special, and little seems to have changed here. She looks extremely bored as she receives oral sex from the guy and then gives him a half-assed blowjob. She moans mechanically as she gets pounded in cowgirl. Lots of lube appears to be leaking out of her pussy, if that is your thing.
She takes it up the ass in a variety of positions. Nomi probably looks the best when she is getting drilled in the ass doggy-style. She occasionally remembers the theme of the movie to turn around and mumble something in what sounds like French.
The cumshot, which goes into her mouth and all over her face, is a pretty good one and Nomi is sufficiently glazed. This was an average scene, it really didn't do that much for me. Nomi looked o.k. but didn't really seem to be into the proceedings. She pretty much phones in her scene here in typical Euro-starlet style, with glassy-eyed staring into the camera and loud fake moaning.
Scene 5: Lea De Mae and two guys
Thankfully, the beautiful Lea De Mae left us scenes like this one to enjoy. She looks very sexy as she masturbates beside the fire. Lea was a blonde, Eastern European hottie who takes on two guys, one white and one black, in this interracial double banging.
She virtually attacks the two dicks during the oral sequence before riding them in reverse cowgirl. "Yes, I want you to fuck it in my ass" she blurts before getting her wish. Well, the title of the flick is "Broken English," after all. They soon move to DP, during which Lea does frequent P2M and A2M. Unfortunately, to end the scene, she takes two extremely weak shots to the face. There is very little evidence that the guys even orgasmed.
The "Behind the Scenes" segment of the DVD is interesting; we see Monica as she gets her makeup and hair done. She rubs herself down with lotion and gets interviewed for a while. PXP could probably put out a whole DVD of a naked Monica reading the phone book and it would sell like hot-cakes.
"Broken English" was a pretty average PXP gonzo release focusing on Euro-girls. None of the scenes were especially memorable. Monica Sweetheart always looks great, and I was pleasantly surprised when the only girl I hadn't seen before, Sue Diamond, turned out to be a total hottie. Buy or rent this movie for their scenes; the last three are cookie-cutter Euro-gonzo complete with constant fake wooden moaning. Another complaint with the film is the lack of good cumshots.
Companies like PXP and RLD have definitely raised the bar for wall-to-wall gonzo flicks. A film like "Broken English" is better than the vast majority of porn out there, but remains simply a mediocre film in the PXP catalog. Solid, but ultimately nothing special.
