Running Time: 92 min.
Production Date: 10 / 7 / 2011
Director: Jim Powers
Cast: Alyshe Rylee, Gia Steel, Heather Starlet, Maddy O'Reilly, Bill Bailey, Richie, Ryan Driller, and Seth Gamble
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good. The audio is clear and free of background noises, but the music always seems heavy handed. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks pretty good. It has Jim Powers' typical style, but is smooth, clear, and decently lit with a few shadows that seem deliberate to help with the mood.
The Movie: When Maddy gets engaged, she starts plenty of action with her girlfriends. Alyshe isn't sure if she's with the right man as he hasn't proposed, while Gia thinks she might have just met Mr. Right. Then there's Heather, who might have her perfect match in her friend Ryan but is afraid that if they take the next step it'll ruin their friendship.
|Scene 1 – Alyshe Rylee and Richie|
Dirty blonde Alyshe wonders if her relationship with Richie is ever going to take the next step with Richie not sure if he wants to risk what already seems perfect. He lets her know how important their talks like this and learning about her are to him before kissing her and letting his hands wander around her. Richie kisses his way around Alyshe's body and fingers her well trimmed pussy while eating it before she sucks and strokes his cock while giving him plenty of great eyes. Richie takes her back to the bed to spoon and kiss her before rolling on top of her. Alyshe gets on top for a cowgirl ride before hopping off to take his load in her mouth while looking up into her eyes. Afterwards Alyshe moves up to give Richie a kiss.
|Scene 2 – Gia Steel and Bill Bailey|
Brunette Gia gets a little passionate kissing from Bill in a doorway before he stops her to invite her to Paris for a week of fun after his business trip there. They go back to kissing after he presents her with a plane ticket and move to a chair to kiss a little more before Bill helps her out of her top to kiss and play with her nipples as well as reaching down to play with her pussy. He worships her legs on the way down to eat her pussy and fucks her doggie style before she gives him a little head and moves up to ride him cowgirl style. Gia continues to mix in some nice oral action for Bill as he fucks her bald beaver missionary style and finally sucks and strokes him to a nice pop on her face.
|Scene 3 – Heather Starlet and Ryan Driller|
Half dressed Ryan joins Heather in her bed to profess his love and kiss her before kissing her tits and letting his hands wander to her panties. He moves down to eat her box before Heather strips off his jeans to mouth his manhood. She climbs up to ride Ryan cowgirl style before he rolls her over to spoon her. They also fuck missionary style before he pops on Heather's stomach and they kiss while professing their love for each other.
|Scene 4 – Maddy O'Reilly and Seth Gamble|
After professing his love for Maddy and talking about how happy he is to be engaged to her, Seth lays her back on the bed to kiss her. They help strip each other down while kissing before Maddy puts her mouth to work on his meat and Seth repays her with some tongue and finger action for her bald beaver. Seth moves up to fuck Maddy missionary style before letting her get on top for a cowgirl ride. He also spoons Maddy before she sucks and strokes him to a pop in her mouth.
It Was Always You is a fairly forgettable release for Mike Hunt's entry into the romantic porn world. That isn't to say that it's bad, but it is horribly generic and cliched as well as feeling a bit forced. The cast looks good but the story is overly light, generic, and filled with characters who are one dimensional even by porn standards. It's not unusual for a romance movie or rom-com to leave you feeling like you've already seen it fifteen times before, but done right one doesn't care because the players make the ride enjoyable. Here that never happens, and in fact there's enough there to make this one quite unromantic at times. Sorry, but I don't think most people picking this one up want to hear Maddy O'Reilly telling Seth that she could eat his cum forever or for him to respond that she's going to even if she's one heck of a great cocksucker and seed eater. That kind of awkwardness seems fairly typical for how It Was Always You rolls. Yes, there's some nice sex here with Maddy O'Reilly showing her usual great oral skills and Heather Starlet turning out a very nice scene with Ryan. Gia Steel also does a good job with Bill while Alyshe and Richie turn out a pretty average scene, but there's always a feeling through the movie that makes the romantic style seem a bit forced and like the cast always wants to get a little friskier. If you're looking for romantic porn, there's a lot better places to look for it than It Was Always You.
The Extras: There's a behind the scenes featurette, Cock Talk, and trailers.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts twenty six minutes. Jim Powers starts out chatting with Maddy O'Reilly about getting into porn, her first love, and her dating situation. She also talks about sucking cock and loving them cumming in her mouth before sitting back and playing with herself. Alysha Rylee talks about where she lived before porn, why her first love didn't work, being in love, and her perfect man. She also talks about her horse before stripping down to show off her great tits and play with herself. Gia sits on a kitchen counter and talks about her background, being in love, and getting into the business before putting on her solo show. Finally Heather talks about her time in the industry, her first love, relationships, and what kinds of guys she likes before taking care of herself. This is a very nice behind the scenes featurette. As usual Jim Powers does a nice job keeping the interviews simple but gets the girls talking quite well. The solo action from each of the girls is a great addition and feels nicely natural. This is a very enjoyable behind the scenes featurette.
Cock Talk lasts about ten minutes. This was originally a feature on the Howard Stern Show, and here you get the video to go along with the audio. I'll admit to shaking my head at this originally, but I'll admit that in small doses it is rather amusing as the girls try to say famous quotes and sayings with a cock in their mouth or throat. This is a decent addition to the overall DVD.
Condom Usage: None
Final Thoughts: It's a rental at best with the extras being more enjoyable than the movie.
Note to Mike Hunt / Juicy Entertainment: I hope you put your skills to work on things you're better at in the future rather than putting out another romance themed release like this.
