* DIRECTOR: Paul Thomas. * DURATION: »90mins. * STARRING: Asia Carrera, Christa Rain,
Christy Canyon, Dallas, Jenteal & Shelby Stevens.
OVERALL: A fun movie for Christy Canyon’s
90s comeback. The story is light but entertaining
though, as always, Vivid sex leaves a fair bit to
be desired – particularly as Christy doesn’t seem
too enthusiastic with men. A decent film overall
with some funny moments and some erotic moments,
especially in the scene with Christy and Jenteal.
FEMALE LOOKS: I got started in porn after
Christy retired, so I don’t know how she looked
at her peak. Here her face is a little gaunt but
she is still attractive with a natural appeal,
though the famous massive (natural) breasts are
starting to sag. The girls in the first three
scenes – Christa, Dallas and Shelby – are
average, and I’ve never thought highly of Asia’s
looks. Jenteal however looks gorgeous and
suitably innocent for her “first girl-girl scene”.
MALE LOOKS: About average with Ian
Daniels, Michael J. Cox, Steve St. Croix, Tony
Tedeschi and TT Boy. All are looking quite young –
no pensioners fortunately. While long hair still
irritates me and both TTs make me shudder,
there’s nothing stomach-turning here.
SEX: The sex is what you’d expect from
Paul Thomas & Vivid – fairly light, routine and
not particularly hot or energetic. Christy’s MF
scenes are short and she doesn’t seem
enthusiastic but just going through the motions.
Her scene with Jenteal is very sexy with some hot
moments but some odd moments as well.
Scene 1 – Dallas (?) & Michael J. Cox. A very
quick BJ to set the scene. Nosy background
observers, wide shots of the set and the crew,
and annoying background noises distract from the
under-one-minute blow. He cums a bit around her
Scene 2 – Shelby Stevens (?) & Ian Daniels;
Christy Canyon. Slightly better filming and A/V
quality and even a short-lived smidgeon of heat
as Shelby rides Ian’s face, then screws him while
Christy watches and masturbates. Still a rather
plain affair. She strokes some of his cum into
Scene 3 – Christa Rain (?) & TT Boy; Christy
Canyon. Christa blows TT as he sweet-talks
Christy. Parts of the scene were inventive and
erotic, but became drawn-out. Still, there was
some decent heat as TT pounds Christa while
Christy uses a dildo on her hairy pussy. TT pops
a fair load on Christa’s tits.
Scene 4 – Christy Canyon & Jenteal. Christy and
Jenteal make a great-looking pair and Christy
seems very enthusiastic tonguing Jenteal’s
asshole. Fortunately, there are no distractions
apart from the light music in this scene.
Unfortunately, the hot foreplay is criminally
short, though the following strap-on action is
surprisingly palatable. An impressive scene with
two hot women.
Scene 5 – Christy Canyon & Tony Tedeschi.
Tedeschi licks Christy fervently before she gives
him a very short, rather tame blow. After some
rushed mish and doggy, he shoots on her butt.
While the action was fast, it wasn’t hot – the
scene was too short and Christy seemed
Scene 6 – Christy Canyon & Steve St. Croix. Steve
briefly eats Christy before she gives an even
shorter and more poorly-filmed BJ. There is a bit
of pumping, a faint ember of heat, but no pop.
Scene 7 – Asia Carrera, Christy Canyon & Steve
St. Croix. The scene is re-shot with the addition
of Asia, who receives some sapphic attention from
Christy while sucking on Steve. Again, there’s
some rapid pumping served cold before Steve cums
on Christy’s stomach and tits. Not very hot but a
fitting finish to a light movie.
PLOT/ACTING: Retired star Christy Canyon
makes a nervous comeback to the world of porn.
The movie is light and quite funny with good
performances (porn stars being themselves around
the set), including some amusing scenes with
director Paul Thomas.
EXTRAS: 7 chapters, 15 previews, 16 sex
scenes, Vivid girl bios & web preview. Exactly
the same tired stuff in exactly the same
arrangement that all Vivid Wave DVDs seem to
have. One question – why do the extras have
better A/V quality than the feature?
A/V QUALITY: Mostly average with minor
grain in the picture. The music wasn’t too
annoying but there were some (scripted)
irritating background noises at times.
