Audio/Video: Excellent. A lot of visual interest, with some gorgeous outdoor shots, light and airy indoor video, which John explains in the commentary is all natural lighting. The walls look to be a pale peach color, which adds a warm glow. By contrast, there's darker, interesting mood lighting in the Budapest bar.

The movie opens with shots of Tricia jogging against a gorgeous Pacific sunrise, with John following her, and salivating over her butt. Check out my screenshots, who can blame him? He strikes up a conversation and invites her to his nearby home for "a swim in his pool". Does Tricia sprint off, screaming about this guy stalking her, taking crotch shots? Hell no, this is porn, and she indeed goes to John's house. It's soon clear however, that John is not creepy, he's just an ardent admirer of female well, butts of course!
Once there, Tricia sees that there's some debris in the pool, and asks sweetly "Don't you have a pool man?" Of course he has a pool man, I'm thinking, this is porn! I just wonder who it will be? Well, my mistake - this is Stagliano, this is gonzo, and Buttman don't need no stinkin' pool man!
Things proceed to the bedroom - Tricia, totally unfazed by his porn collection which probably rivals reviewer's, teases and poses good naturedly for John, who keeps a big bag of toys close by. Tricia's like a little kid on Christmas morning as she plays with little butterfly clips, dildoes, anal beads, and a large, clear buttplug. She likes to put the clips on her nipples and pussy (ouch!), but as she explains in the commentary, she understands that this might not appeal to someone not into S & M as she is. I'm not, but I didn't find it to be a turn off because they don't go overboard with it, and they actually looked pretty.
There are many extreme close-up shots, which I assume is a Buttman trademark. I didn't include the ones of Tricia in my screenshots out of respect, but who would have thought such a wholesome, all American girl could get so nasty?
Sex scene 2: Reka, Mina, Frank Gun, Mike Foster no condoms
The next scene involves John's European friends and takes place in a kind of cellar/barroom shot in Budapest. In the commentary, John says he didn't know what the hell was going to happen in this scene, but liked the interesting lighting, which was kind of dark, with daylight coming through the windows. These two Hungarians looked kinda hard, and heavy on the makeup.
More buttplugs, nipple clamps, and a couple of Euro studs are brought into play. The girls take it in tandem - anally, orally, and loudly, ending in a couple of facials.
Sex scene 3: Stephanie Steel, Christoph Clark no condom Stephanie, an auburn haired European, is attractive, but she kinda annoys me because she's always mugging or gaping for the camera, which is shown far too many times for my tastes. But then, even ONCE is too much for me. Christoph is nice looking, but he's even more fixated on assholes than Buttman, and kind of creeps me out the way he's constantly interrupting the flow of things to excitedly show us her gaping butthole. OK OK, we've seen it! I didn't like it the first time. Fans of hard anal fucking (in between gapes) will love this scene. She prances around with one of those horsetail buttplugs for awhile, then Clark inserts a clear one just like the one Tricia was playing with. I wonder if Buttman ever has his luggage searched? During yet another gape, I was afraid John was going to go in there with his camera. Or fall in, actually.
Sex scene 4: John and Tricia condom
Cool, back at the Buttman residence! Tricia deep throats John for awhile before sitting on his face to enjoy some anal tongue fucking from him. She then bends over and is pussy fucked doggy style from the Buttman, then missionary, while she pinches his nipples. He pounds away and almost comes, so they change positions again and he sticks his fingers in her bottom a few times, before fucking her again, this time anally. Tricia's pretty loud through this scene, and it's obvious John knows how to get her revved up.
Being a heterosexual female, naturally a Buttman movie would not be my first choice when it comes to my personal porn viewing. Buttman focuses mainly and literally on female butts of course, and does it very well. I certainly see why he is the man when it comes to gonzo, and appreciate the quality, care, and eye for visual interest that he puts into it. I prefer more whole body interaction between the performers, and there's some of that too.
When I heard about Toy Stories coming out on dvd, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The two Ts, toys and Tricia, made it a 'must see'. I've always liked her devilishly cute girl-next-door look, and here with no makeup her natural beauty makes her look about 18. Is it my imagination, or does Tricia look younger every time I see her? How does she do it? Not only that, but she comes across as so very sweet and good natured throughout this - always smiling or laughing, when she's not moaning in ectasy. It's easy to see why John fell in love with her - I think I'm starting to myself, and I KNOW you will.
I enjoyed this dvd alot, mainly for her segments. Without the others, I would have scored it solid fives across the board, but these scenes will be a welcome addition for all the Euro fans, so there's a good mix of toys, tease, and enough hardcore action to satisfy everyone here. I came away feeling as if I had spent a very enjoyable day at the Buttmans, even without the dang pool man. Thanks guys!
