The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Both Carmen Hart and David Stanley have been flying below the radar of most people while putting out some great movies. I'm looking forward to this one.
Initial Reaction: It's pretty hot and a heck of a lot of fun.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a good laugh with their smut
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who doesn't find inbred southerners funny
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty well done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I didn't notice any background noises. The video is nicely presented in anamorphic widescreen. There's a few times the lighting gets a little too dark, but most of the time it's a little dark in a way that adds to the sensuality of the movie. The camera work is nicely done and the picture is free of grain.
Music: The music rests very quietly in the background, and in some cases is so quiet that you have to deliberately listen for it to hear it. It works well for the scenes and never interferes with them.
Menus: The main menu is a bit simple, and just blends a little minor animation with the boxcover leaving an okay first impression. The chapter menu is very generic and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number rather than giving something meaningful like the names of the performers in the scene.
The FeatureFor part of her reality show, Carmen Hart heads to Texas to meet the winner of the “Spend a Day with Carmen Hart” contest. After that, her and her assistant were never seen again. Up until recently it was a mystery what happened, but a batch of videotapes has been found showing what happened when she headed deep into the heart of Texas where the moonshine flowed free and it was more common to find a family bush than a family tree.
|Scene 1 – Carmen Hart and Ryder Skye|
When hot brunette Carmen gets bored on the way to meet her fan, she has her cute brunette assistant Ryder get down to eat her box and finger her in the Hummer limo. Carmen kisses Ryder passionately when she comes up for air and strips her down to suck her titties before laying back on the set and letting Ryder ride her tongue. Finally they sit next to each other and play with each other's pussy before kissing, cuddling, and heading on down the road.
This is a nice little lesbo scene. As always Carmen looks cute as can be, and as usual she eats a good box. The scene is pretty simple, but there's nice chemistry between the girls and they look like they're having a good time with it. That helps this end up an above average scene rather than the average or slightly below average scene it would have been with lesser performers due to the limited positions.
|Scene 2 – August and Steven St. Croix|
While at the dinner picnic, brunette August starts going down on her man Steven. After starting out leaning over to suck him as he sits at the table, Steven stands up and August continues with her sucking and stroking. She strips off her cutoffs and thong for Steven to fuck her from behind before taking to her back for a little missionary work on the table. Finally Steven pulls out and pops all over August's stomach and tits before she sucks the last bit out.
This is a very fun scene. Steven and August throw some nice humor into the scene right from the start and there's nice chemistry between them through the fucking. The lighting is on the low side, but works very well for the scene being at night adding mood while never interfering with the sex. This is a hot and fun scene.
|Scene 3 – Exotica and Barrett Blade|
Exotica's phone sex career and mullet-sporting Barrett's stud service come together as they talk through a pair of tin cans connected by string while he fucks her doggie style. They move on with a reverse cowgirl ride before Exotica gives Barrett a bit of head. Finally, Barrett strokes himself to a nice pop on Exotica's tits.
This is a pretty good scene. Once again there's some great humor built into the scene, and it doesn't interfere with the sex at all. There's pretty good chemistry between Barrett and Exotica, and the scene moves at a pretty good pace. This is a nice little scene.
|Scene 4 – Exotica, Ryder Skye, and Barrett Blade|
After Ryder gets a little lap dance from Barrett in his “dance club”, Exotica runs in to get in on the action. The girls team up on Barrett's cock orally before Ryder lays back for him to fuck her missionary style as Exotica straddles her face to get her pussy eaten and leans forward to suck Barrett's cock a little more. Exotica bends over by Ryder so Barrett can get in a little doggie fucking with her as she and Ryder kiss, as well as letting him make his way back and forth between them. Finally Barrett lets the girl share a nice facial finish.
This is a pretty good scene. There's a nice balance between the girls as well as plenty of humor to lead into the scene. There's nice chemistry through the scene with Exotica really shining as she works her way between Barrett and Ryder. I would have liked another position or two, but this is still a pretty good scene.
|Scene 5 – Carmen Hart and Marcus London|
After finally meeting contest winner Marcus and joining him for some fine moonshine, Carmen heads to the couch with Marcus with some passionate kissing. They kiss their way around each other's chest before Marcus eats her pussy. Carmen sucks his cock in return before getting up to ride it reverse cowgirl style and then lets Marcus fuck her from behind. Finally, Carmen takes a very nice load form Marcus all over her tits.
This is easily the best scene in the movie. As usual Carmen looks fantastic, and once again I would have liked another position. At the same time there's great chemistry between Marcus and Carmen and the lighting gets a little more straightforward helping this to be a much easier scene to watch sexually. This is a hot and fun scene.
Carmen Goes South is a great porn comedy. David Stanley does a great job both in front of the camera and behind it, and had me laughing my butt off throughout the movie. Although Stanley's movies often seemed to lack a bit sexually and sometimes got a little too artistic for me, here both did quite well. The sex scenes still lacked a little compared to the non-sex moments for a couple reasons. First, I would have normally liked another position or two since most of the time there were only two sex positions. The bigger reason is that I loved the story sequences and they had me laughing my butt off. David Stanley held his own against Steven St. Croix for humor, and Barrett Blade and the female cast were every bit as amusing. There is some good sex here with Carmen Hart showing once again why she's probably the most underrated contract performer out there. Carmen does every bit as good of a job acting as she does fucking, and made every moment she was on the screen a joy. Carmen Goes South might have a bit much story for the amount of sex in the movie for some peoples' tastes, but that was really what made the movie for me. Carmen Goes South is a hilarious fuck flick that I can't help but recommend.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Dating 101, Fired, Carmen Goes South, Priceless Fantasies, Double Exposure, Hot Chocolate, Kung Fu Nurses a Go-Go, Reform School Girls 3, and Off the Air. Star stats are included for Carmen Hart, August, and Exotica giving you a still of the star, a link to their scene, a little personal information, and a Wicked filmography. In addition to a photo gallery for the feature, star galleries are included for Carmen Hart, August, Exotica, and Ryder Skye with each gallery lasting a little over two and a quarter minutes with about seven seconds per good looking snapshot or full screen photo. There's also a bonus scene, a behind the scenes featurette, and the usual Wicked commercials.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about twenty five minutes with Mark Stone behind the camera. David Stanley starts things out rolling one of his own before talking about the movie. Things move over to Carmen and Ryder in the limo chatting about the movie and talking with David about the scene. They chat a little about shaving after Carmen touches herself up down below before the girls pose for stills. Mark and his camera continue to move around the set capturing the scenes being shot and chatting with the cast. Mark goes back to talking with David and Carmen a few times including chatting with Carmen about her sex life. This is a nice behind the scenes featurette. You get a nice feel for David Stanley and how he interacts with the cast on his shoots as well as a bit of personality from the stars. This is a pretty good featurette that adds nicely to the overall DVD.
|Bonus Scene – Carmen Hart and Voodoo|
The bonus scene comes from Fired. As soon as cute brunette Carmen finds out who Voodoo is she sets out to rock his world. They strip off her top and pants so he can admire her tits and ass before Carmen lays back and lets him eat her pussy. Carmen sucks his cock in return as he continues to play with her pussy and even lets him fuck her face a little before laying back and letting him fuck her missionary style. Carmen also rides Voodoo reverse cowgirl style before he rolls her to the side to spoon her. She gets back up to ride him cowgirl style before letting him fuck her doggie style. Finally, Voodoo pops on Carmen's shapely ass and she turns around to suck the last bit out of his cock.
This is a nice little scene. It moves a little fast and felt like it could have been drawn out very nicely, but there is nice chemistry between Voodoo and Carmen. As always Carmen looks great, and the action is nicely captured. This is a pretty good scene.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, lesbian, and group
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: 100%
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Wicked DVDs can be found for between about $17 and $25 with several stores offering them near the low end. This one's well worth the money. The sex is good and the movie itself is hilarious. The technical aspects are pretty good even though the lighting sometimes gets a little dark. There's also some nice effort put into the extras. This is a hilarious movie on a DVD that shows some nice care.
Note to Wicked Pictures: A couple minor things would really help your overall DVDs. First, please show your bonus scene in the same anamorphic form that the movie and BTS are presented in. Second, please let people know something useful in the chapter menu. A scene number means nothing to most people, but knowing who the performers are in each scene most of the time lets them go right where they want.
