The Short Story
Initial Expectations: I havenít seen much from Zero Tolerance, but this is supposed to be one of the best all girl movies of the year. How could I not go into this one without high expectations?
Initial Reaction: Itís very well shot, but in the end fairly devoid of emotional depth.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of softer and prettier all girl action
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a variety of feelings to the scenes
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced throughout the movie, and I donít think I heard a single background noise. The video is also very nicely done. Itís clear and well lit without having any annoying camera motion. Itís only fault is that itís shot in the widescreen format and given a non-anamorphic transfer rather than the anamorphic transfer the widescreen format deserves.
Music: The music is very well done, and definitely helps out the overall movie. It often has a fairly porno style and is sometimes overly familiar, but it changes with every scene and often varies its balance.
Menus: The main menu is okay, and blends a nice still of the cast with a little animation. The chapter menu is very generic, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene.
The FeatureGirlvana captures six scenes of all girl action in various settings. Thereís the club, the pool, the massage parlor, and many more. Sometimes thereís a little setup and sometimes the scene gets right to it.
|Scene 1 - Angel Cassidy and Jenna Haze|
After they hit the club scene a bit, bottle blonde Angel sets her sights on cute brunette Jenna across the room. Jenna quickly notices and returns a few looks before Angel heads to the bathroom with Jenna following soon after. When Angel sees Jenna heading into a stall, she follows her in and they kiss passionately while helping each other strip down and feeling their way around each other. Jenna braces herself against the way and playfully calls Angel a slut as she moves down to eat and finger her pussy. They move out of the stall so Jenna can lick Angelís gash while Angel lays on the counter by the sink before letting Angel work on her again as she leans against the counter and then sits back on it. They break out a pink vibe which Jenna has Angel suck to lube it up before fucking her with it missionary style. Jenna puts a leg up on the counter to let Angel fuck her with a different pink dildo, and canít resist taking it away to suck her pussy off it in the middle of Angelís fucking her. Finally, they end things with a little more passionate kissing and get back dressed to head out.
This is a darn hot scene. The girls are hot, and I love how they eye each other out in the club. The location changes around the bathroom are nice, and I love how they even have somebody come in to use the bathroom as they get it on around the counter. The toys are okay, but I think the scene could have been just as hot without them. Jenna and Angel give Girlvana a very nice start.
|Scene 2 - Charlotte Stokely, Julia Bond, and Karina Kay|
Brunettes Julia and Karina, who are looking mighty hot in their little baby blue and pink plaid schoolgirl outfits, start out the next scene eyeing blonde Charlotte in the locker room. They slam her locker and ask her if sheíd ever kissed a girl or two before by grabbing one of her braids and gently pulling her in so they can all kiss back and forth. Julia and Karina have Charlotte lie back on a bench so Karina can lick Charlotteís pussy and ass while Charlotte and Julia check out each otherís tits. Karina and Julia strip down next, with Katrina taking a very brief stay in the middle before Julia works on Charlotteís pussy while Karina licks hers from behind. Charlotte also gives her tits a little attention in return before they let Karina take her turn in the middle. Charlotte gets down to lick Karinaís cunt before letting Julia sine on her face while Karina stays in the game fingering Juliaís pussy at the same time. Karina goes to the lockers to break out a small blue glass dildo that she fucks Charlotte with as Charlotte lies back before getting on all fours so Charlottes can fuck her pussy with it as Julia watches and slaps her ass a bit. Finally, Julia gets fucked from behind with the toy as she leans against the lockers before they girls finish things with a kiss.
This is another very nice scene. The girls play into the younger aspect of the scene while never getting so young to turn off people like myself where the barely legal ďletís see if I can act like Iím not even old enough to driveĒ attitude just doesnít do anything. The girls have nice chemistry all around, and although part of me would have liked it if Charlotte would have kept some of the ďlesbian newbieĒ feeling that the scene started with, her enthusiasm throughout the scene was also quite nice. This is another hot scene.
|Scene 3 - Codi and Ria Lynn|
As heavily tattooed light brunette Codi lies back on the steps entering a pool with her pink and white bikini hanging open, dark brunette and tattoo-free Ria canít help but watch and giggle a little. When Codiís hand starts to snake into her bikini bottoms, Ria swims over to help her out. She arrives between Codiís legs and quickly comes up to kiss her softly and passionately before sliding back down to kiss Codiís tits. They kiss a bit more before Codi leads Ria out of the pool and over to a laid out pool futon. The girls both get on all fours, and after checking each other out for a moment Codi moves back to lick Ria from behind and to let her sit on her face. She gives Ria a little finger action as well before Ria hops off, comes around to kiss her, and then moves down to lick her pussy. The girls change back so Codi can give while Ria sits back on the futon before they grab a couple towels and head next to the pool for Ria to tongue and finger Codi again. Finally, the girls leap in and swim to the other side of the pool.
This is a nice scene. The best thing about it to me was the lack of toys, although I can see them coming out quite well by having them lying there next to the pool or under the poll futon. That said, the scene just went back and forth, and never really seemed to go anywhere. Part of my problem with it was also that although Ria did a lot for me, Codi was so heavily tattooed that I really didnít find her that attractive. The girls did seem to have a bit of fun, but I just couldnít get into this scene too much. This scene makes it just past the average level, mostly due to a great start.
|Scene 4 - Alektra Blue, Dillan Lauren, and Eva Angelina|
Things seem to go to jail next, where Alektra, Dillan, and Eva get it on while five others watch. Alektra is thrown back and has her clothes ripped open for her pussy to get licked while Eva watches with a smoke and a couple other girls play with her tits. Alektra and Dillan change places so Dillan can get a good tongue lashing before Dillan throws Alektra off to turn her attention over to Eva. Alektra wonít be thrown aside so easily, and moves around to play with Evan a little as Dillan has Evaís clothes ripped off and works her over down under. Eva tongues Dillanís twat in return, and after a bit they break out some toys. Eva takes a bluish toy in her pussy doggie style before Dillan lies back and lets Eva fuck her ass with a jelly dildo as Alektra licks her pussy. Finally, the scene ends with the question of whoís next.
This is a pretty good scene. The girly gangbang feeling is pretty good through the scene, and I love the more intense feeling of it. That said, the action didnít quite live up to the feeling. Dillan does a very nice job of taking it in the ass, but sheís the only one to do it. Thereís just something that felt slightly off with the scene, although I do really like how it had a darker feeling than the other scenes.
|Scene 5 - Charmane Star, Kaiya Lynn, Nyomi Zen, and Teanna Kai|
Teanna starts out the final scene on the first DVD walking in and giving Charmane a massage as Kaiya and Nyomi watch and lightly play against the wall. Teanna works on Charmaneís naughty parts a little as she rubs her down with oil first with Charmane lying on her front and then on her back. She finally kisses Charmane after rubbing her down on her back, and then moves down to lick her pussy. As Nyomi and Kaiya moves over to a couch to get a bit more intimate, Teanna trades places with Charmane to get her pussy licked and fingered. Teanna thanks Charmane by fucking her with an oilcan styled glass dildo while Kaiya takes things up another notch with Nyomi fucking her with a silver vibe. Charmane gets the glass dildo to work on Teanna while Kaiya takes a pink vibe in her ass. The girls each suck the toys clean before finishing things up with a kiss with the four girls coming together to share the kiss.
This is another okay scene. The girls look good and I kind of like the massage parlor setting. That said, having the four girls split into two groups just didnít work for me. Part of me wanted them to all get together and the other part just wanted to see more of each group. Kaiya and Nyomi seem all but forgotten through much of the scene, and because of it I had a hard time getting into it. This scene finishes the first DVD on a low note.
|Scene 6 - Alexia, Celeste Star, Gigi, Kaylynn, Kristen Price, Lexxi Tyler, Mackenzie Mack, and Sammie Rhodes|
The girls emerge from everywhere around a stairwell and help each other get dressed in baby blue and black outfits for some photos. They head into an elegant parlor and pair up to play with each other. They donít waste a lot of time before going down below for some lunch, and move around to play with each other a bit too. The girls break apart and join back up for bigger and smaller groups, and after working each other over for a while they break out some toys. Some girls get strap-ons and others get glass toys for a little anal action. Finally, the scene fades out with the girls kissing and many feeling like theyíre not close to done.
This is a decent orgy. Iíll readily admit that Iím not much of an orgy person as every time the chemistry seems to build between a group the camera moves and I lose it. This one also started off very slowly for me due to the photo shots at the beginning that added pretty much nothing to the scene. The split between toys and no toys was also sharp as can be. The scene is all shot very nicely and has an elegant look to it, but that just wasnít enough for me.
Girlvana is an above average movie. Thereís some very nice action in places here, with Jenna Haze and Angel Cassidyís club bathroom scene at the start of the movie easily being my favorite in the movie and Charlotte, Karina, and Juliaís locker room play being my second. Sadly, the longer the movie went on, the less it worked for me. The girls are cute and nicely dressed, and the action is shot very well. The problem with it is that although the locations changed, the action never seemed to. There was virtually the same feeling in every scene, be it girls getting it on in a club bathroom, girls playing in what appeared to be prison, or girls getting it on in a massage parlor. It all comes off as very appealing to the eye, but I never had a feeling of much depth beyond the first scene. I can appreciate the style to Girlvana, but the action in it rarely felt fulfilling to me and frequently left me ambivalent about the action and the movie.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Internal Cumbustion 7, Fishnets 2, Druve Thru 3, Apprentass 3, Double Decker Sandwich 6, POV Centerfolds, Whoís Your Daddy 7, and Teenage Jizz Junkies. The photo gallery includes nearly a hundred great looking snapshots. Thereís also a behind the scenes featurette and a bonus scene.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts just over an hour, and unfortunately doesnít have a single chapter break. After a few still photos are shot, the camera moves to Jenna Haze in the makeup chair who talks about Orange County before getting dressed and chatting a bit more while showing off a bit. She keeps it up posing for her photos with Angel adding even more personality. They move on to shoot the scene, both in the club and bathroom with The Quaze appearing to direct the entire thing. Julia is next, first with a photo shoot and then talking about her paws and having fun with girls in the chair. Charlotte talks about being a ZT virgin, how thereís most everything you can think of for porn in Florida, and getting into porn. Karina talks about being more of a lesbian than anything, getting into the business, and having a girlfriend in porn before they move to the locker room with Quaze once again appearing to direct everything. Quick interviews with Eva and Dillan are mixed in before it moves on to Charmane, Teanna, Nyomi, and Kaiya and their scene. Of course, things finish up with the orgy and plenty of comments and fun with the girls. Of course, The Quaze adds plenty of humor throughout the entire featurette while he directs the action. Itís a pretty darn good featurette, and my only real problem with it is that each scene doesnít get its own chapter.
|Bonus Scene - Alicia Rhodes and Bobbi Eden|
Blondes Alicia and Bobby start out the bonus scene kissing on a couch while wearing a little black lingerie. Alicia doesnít waste a lot of time from kissing Bobbi on the mouth to moving down to quickly suck her tits. After a little more kissing, Alicia has Bobbi turn around so she can help her out of her corset, and mixes in plenty more kissing for Bobbiís neck and mouth before having Bobbi lie back so she can suck her tits. Bobbi helps Alicia out of her corset to suck her tits briefly before Alicia strips off Bobbiís panties and starts to worship her ass. Alicia has Bobbi lie back again so she can lick her pussy as well as working her tongue around Bobbiís beautiful butt. Alicia crawls up to plant her pussy over Bobbiís face at her request, and after she gets Aliciaís pussy warmed up Bobbi climbs from underneath to work on Aliciaís ass with her tongue and fingers. Alicia lets Bobbi ride her tongue again to thank her before they finish things up with a passionate kiss.
This is one heck of a hot scene! Not even three minutes into this scene I couldnít help but wonder why this was just a bonus scene rather than a part of the actual movie. Thereís great chemistry between the girls, and I think thereís more heat generated between the two of them than two of the group scenes in the movie put together. Right from the start they give the feeling of great potential between them, and that feeling never goes away. I love how they donít just take turns doing the same thing to each other while working down a checklist. This is a smoking hot scene, and much better than some of the scenes in the actual movie.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: All girl, toys, group, rimming (female > female), and anal
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None needed
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Zero Toleranceís DVDs can be found online for between $11 and $25, with many stores offering them for around $20. Rent this one before you buy it. Although it didnít work overly well for me, I can see some people getting into it and I have no doubt that those people will get into it in a very big way. I found the action nice, but nothing special. The technical aspects were very nice with the exception of the non-anamorphic transfer, and thereís some nice effort put into the extras. This is a decent movie on a very nice DVD.
Note to Zero Tolerance: Although this one didnít go over overly well with me, itís nice to see you trying for the bigger budget fuck flick while keeping a nice artistic eye. I hope you try something like this again and that next time it gets an anamorphic transfer.
