Production Date: Sept. 2000 (cover) 6 / 27 / 2000 (DVD)
Director: Nic Cramer
Cast: Gina Lynn, April, Shawna Sexton, Regan Star, Dillion Day, Chris Cannon. Randy Spears, and Kyle Stone
Initial Expectations: Iíve been kind of liking Nic Cramerís style lately and I always like thief movies, so Iím hoping for something good here.
Initial Reaction: Itís pretty good and has some great, but tame, sex.
Who Should Watch It : Couples
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for a really strong movie or extreme sex
Audio /Video Quality: The audio sounds very good, but the synch with the video seems to be off slightly in quite a few places. Once again Nic Cramer uses a widescreen video format. It has a little grain, which is to be expected since I believe Mr. Cramer normally shoots his features on film. I have to admit to being disappointed that nobody cared enough to do it right and give it an anamorphic transfer, which anybody with a widescreen TV begs for.
Music: The music is well done with a slightly techno feel in places and rests very quietly in the background.
Menus: Some of the menus have a nice little bit of animation that helps them out, but they all have a sexy feel to them. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip and a scene number.
The Feature: Gina Lynn plays the Diamond Dog, a master jewel thief. She seems to only steal diamonds, and big ones at that. Cop Randy Spears knows Ginaís guilty, but try as they might the police canít catch her. Theyíve even went as far as staking out her house rather than just the local donut hole.
Shawna Sexton starts things off with Chris Cannon. Shawnaís impressive from the start. Sheís a cute brunette who as of this time hasnít seen the need to overly augment an already great natural body. She also has some great energy as she sucks and tit-fucks Chrisís cock, which unfortunately isnít done with the traditional Cramer-vision style. Chris returns the favor with some aggressive finger and tongue action for Shawnaís completely shaved pussy before starting to fuck her from behind. Shawna rolls over and shows how great natural tits jiggle when a girl is fucked, and seems to get into Chrisís hot meat injection very well. She even gives a few happy laughs as Chris spreads her sphincter with his staff. After some very nice and well received ass fucking, Chris unloads a squib from his cannon on Shawnaís tongue. Itís a fairly hot scene with a few very hot moments and a warm ending.
Gina Lynn, looking as great as ever, shows off wearing some very sexy purple and white lacy lingerie in front of a window before beckoning to Dillion Day to join her. They go to the couch where Gina lays back so Dillion can eat and play with her bald beaver. Gina repays him by wrapping her very nice mouth around his cock and slowly sucking it, with some of it done in the great Cramer-vision style where she looks up at the camera for a long, uncut time. Gina keeps her lingerie on as she fucks Dillion, starting out with a very nice looking reverse cowgirl. They move onto a standing missionary and a little doggie action before Gina takes a good shot of Dillionís joy juice on her face. Itís a hot scene that Gina seems to be into very well.
Regan Star, an average at best looking blonde with a nice body, starts things off with Randy Spears with a hilarious porno moment. Randy quickly strips off her clothes to get at her nicely natural tits before sitting back and giving her an oral proficiency exam that she passes with flying colors. She even goes for a little extra credit by throwing in a little tit-fucking. Randy passes on tasting her smooth clam and instead has her spread it over his cock as he continues to sit back in his chair. They move through a few more positions, and although I donít find Regan that attractive she and Randy do work very good together and she gets into it very well. They finish things off with a nice pop on Reganís natural funbags, and unfortunately she doesnít seem to show any interest in getting any guy goo any closer to her face than that.
Prostitute April, now a brunette who I think is one of the most underrated stars around, gets busy with client Kyle Stone. She lets Kyle lick her pussy and ass from behind before repeatedly taking Kyle down her throat. Aprilís a master of oral sex, and she really shows it off here. They work through a few of the standard positions, with April getting into it so that it looks like it feels good as well as looking good. April finishes Kyle off with another great blowjob, and takes a small pop in her mouth and swallows it down. Itís a very hot scene with great chemistry.
Finally, Randy Spears gets Gina Lynn right where he wants her, on him. Randy frees her from her lingerie, which seems to comprise most of Ginaís wardrobe, and licks her tastefully implanted tits. She doesnít give him much time before dropping down to work on his cock. She gives him some great head and then rides him reverse cowgirl. They also work through the mandatory doggie before laying back for Randy to fuck her. Once again she finishes things up with a very nice facial that she doesnít shy away from in the least.
Diamond Dog is a nice couples feature, but nothing that pushes any limits at all. The plot is fairly thin, but has a little effort put into it. The sex is better, and very couples friendly with the only thing to offend some people being a little anal. Although fairly tame, the entire cast gets into their scenes and does a very good job with it. April and Gina Lynn both really stand out here, and the others arenít far behind. If youíre looking for something with a little of everything or somewhere to find something new, Diamond Dog definitely isnít for you. If youíre looking for a nicely done, tamer adult film, Diamond Dog might be just the right thing for you.
Extras: A small bio is included for Gina Lynn that includes a little information, almost none of it personal, and a photo of her. The photo gallery includes about seventeen nice looking snapshots and full screen photos. Thereís also trailers and covers for many releases from the Pleasure family, which youíve probably seen before, as well as internet information and phone sex commercials.
Themes: Straight, tit-fuck, anal, rimming (male > female), spanking, and swallowing
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Overall: Currently, Diamond Dog can be found online for between $15 and $23 with most stores offering it for under $20. If youíre a fan of Nic Cramerís style, youíll be happy, but I wouldnít recommend most others to pay more than the low end here. The plot is pretty well done, with a cast that seems to care about it. The sex is even better, and although tame thereís some great performances. Unfortunately the extras are lacking, and the transfer is pretty average.
Note to Pleasure: Itís great to see somebody supporting the widescreen format, but please take it all the way and give it the anamorphic transfer.
