"A Gay Man's Take on Straight Porn"

This was my first real experience with Vivid, having mostly just watched Wicked movies, and I have to say, I was really disappointed.

The Movie: I'm going to start off with the worst part of this movie, the sex. I have never, ever seen such dull sex in my life! Never at any point was there any kind of heat between the performers, with the exception of the final lesbian scene, which was actually fairly hot thanks to Stephanie Swift. The rest of the time the sex was laughable, and WAY to short. The first sex scene, between Chris Cannon (who is usually a good performer) and Briana Banks is a total dud. Briana could hardly even fake it, and actually breaks out laughing at one point. Laughing like that isn't a good thing. The rest of the sex scenes are extremely vanilla. There is actually almost no female oral sex in this film, just very over drawn blow jobs, and the scenes seem to be rather badly shot. The only exception to that was the scene with Sunrise Adams. The scene had decent heat, but due to it's extremely short running time, it really never amounts to much.

The plot itself is goofy. There are six people who are in a contest to win 6,000,000 dollars. All they have to do is escape an old warehouse. Oh, and there is a monster that happens to eat them. It's very silly, and has some potential, but really never amounts to much. The movie is very short, and because of that, the entire thing just kind of feels rushed.

Tech Stuff: Audio is fine, and the video is okay, in full screen. There is a bit of grain here, and there, but over all it looks fine.

Extras: There is a making of video, and the usual galleries, and star stuff. Over all, not to impressive.

Over All: I would say skip this movie, and get something better, like Jenna Jameson is The Masseuse, or Misty Beethoven the Musical. Skip this movie.
