The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects show potential at times, but are very inconsistent. The audio is pretty clear, but there are also a few background noises. The level also changes drastically throughout the movie, which is more than a little annoying, and there's some very scratchy audio during the final scene. The video is okay through most of the movie. It's pretty well lit, but there's often just a touch of grain and a lot of areas where it looked like somebody was using a hand held lantern for lighting with how tight the bright spots were. It also has a touch of motion that gives it a feel that often reminded me of watching videos somebody took of their family vacation. That's never a good feeling. That feeling is aided by some digital breakdown at one point and the picture freezing for a few seconds in another.
Music: The audio inconsistencies continue into the music. The third scene has music that's a bit loud while others are completely free of music.
False Advertising: Although I normally don't pay a lot of attention to the photos of the action on the boxcover, here I can't help but make an exception. There's only seven photos on the back cover, and they're all pretty big. The biggest of these is in the center of the boxcover and shows Taylor Rain taking a standing DP, but that never happens in the movie and makes the action look much more substantial than it actually is. I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of this. The back cover also claims a running time of 80 minutes. This is true if you count all the extras, but it also makes the movie look like it has a slightly shorter running time than most, as I consider most adult movies to start at about 90 minutes. Instead the movie doesn't even last an hour! With a running time that short, listing a total running time for the DVD looks like a deliberate attempt to mislead consumers and I can't help but penalize the DVD another half point and think much less of Suze Randall's company.
Menus: The main menu is pretty good, and blends a bit of the boxcover with a bit of the movie. The chapter menu shows some nice care, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the name of the lovely lady in it.
The FeatureLove Between the Cheeks collects five unrelated anal scenes. Sometimes there's a little something to lead into the scene, and sometimes it gets right to the action.
|Scene 1 – Michelle B., Mr. Pete, and Scott Nails|
Michelle starts out in a short skirt, wide fishnets, and a top that comes off so quickly I'm not sure what it was with Scott and Mr. Pete in tux shirts, pants, and loose bow ties. The lets them check out her ass with a couple slaps before sitting down on the conveniently located couch to suck and stroke both of them. They play with her pussy a little as she sucks them before Mr. Pete lays Michelle back on the couch to finger her pussy and then fuck her missionary style. He lets Scott have a turn with her pussy before moving on to fuck Michelle's ass. Michelle moves between the guys with a little action in the cowgirls, and even lets the guys double stuff her. Scott magically disappears for a bit after helping double stuff Michelle, leaving Mr. Pete as Michelle's only option for some reverse cowgirl rectal reaming. Finally, she takes a pop on her tits.
The five words that came out of my mouth as this scene came to an end seem to describe this scene best. Those five words were “You are fucking shitting me!”. Mostly this referred to the scene starting out as a three person group scene and then magically ending up a couples scene with only one pop shot. It also describes the amateurish camera work and horrible editing which completely ruined the flow of the scene. Yes, Michelle looks as great as always and puts out the ass extremely well. Yes, the scene starts with a nice style that makes it look like this is going to be a classier production. Sadly, two minutes into this scene the ineptitude behind the camera took a scene with three people who are pretty much guaranteed to put out a great scene and made it into an extreme disappointment.
|Scene 2 – Katsumi and Mr. Pete|
Mr. Pete returns in his partial tux, only this time he's paired with the lovely Katsumi. She starts out half dressed in what appears to have been a classy outfit checking out his cock and teasing him with a bit of a blowjob while looking up at him. When she finally lets the tease fall aside she energetically attacks his cock orally while letting him vigorously fuck her throat. The scene magically cuts to Mr. Pete giving Katsumi a good fuck from behind before she turns around to give him a little more quick head. He plays with her pussy a little before fucking her missionary style with a nice grip on her throat. Mr. Pete goes from fucking her pussy to her ass, and after a few strokes lets Katsumi have a nice taste of it as he fingers her asshole. Things cut to Katsumi getting her shitpussy speared from behind next, before magically moving on to her anal cowgirl ride. Finally, Katsumi takes a facial while looking into the camera.
This is another extremely disappointing scene. Once again the editing leaves everything to be desired and the camera work is about a notch up from the drunk uncle at family get togethers who has his video camera on a tripod. Katsumi looks great and there seems to be some good chemistry between her and Mr. Pete, but apparently Mr. Randall and Big Bad Onxxx wanted to see how much work it would take to kill it.
|Scene 3 – Dana Vespoli, Tyler Knight, and Maxxx Black|
Max hops out of the SUV to let boss Tyler know that they're there, interrupting the head Dana was giving him. She lets them know that they're not at her apartment, but after about three more words of protest drops down to suck and stroke both of them in the alley, or park, or whatever the cheesy set is supposed to be. She encourages Max to play with her asshole as he beats his meat and watches her suck Tyler's cock, and even gets up so he can tongue her from behind. Dana lets Max take her from behind as she sucks Tyler, and then keeps right on going with him and a cowgirl ride. Tyler comes around to DP Dana for a few seconds before the scene moves on with Tyler fucking her ass missionary style as she sucks Max's cock. Max unloads on Dana's face after fucking her from behind, and after Tyler chews him out for unloading on his bitch's face first, she works on him until a camera edit lets him dribble some cum on her tongue.
This is another scene that shows fantastic potential ruined by idiots behind the camera. Dana, as always, appears to get into the action very nice, and although Max starts out weak he picks things up nicely as the scene goes on. Her eyes light up just like always with lust at the end of the scene, but for much of the scene even she seemed a bit bored. I guess I don't blame her.
|Scene 4 – Marie Luv and Jerry|
Black hottie Marie starts out in a little pink outfit kissing Jerry on the couch as he rubs her pussy. They strip her down a bit so he can tongue her twat before she gets up to reciprocate with a little cocksucking. Marie lies back for Jerry to give it to her missionary style before getting up for some work on her shitpussy in both cowgirls. Jerry keeps it up with a little anal spooning and missionary work before giving Marie a nice spunk shower and letting her suck out the last little bit.
This is a pretty standard scene for this movie. A great looking girl who's more than reliable for anal scenes paired with a guy she's turned out many hot scenes with in the past put out a nice effort only nobody behind the camera seems to know how to capture or edit it. This could have been a smoking hot scene, and instead couldn't even wake up my cock from the previous scenes.
|Scene 5 – Taylor Rain, Mick Blue, and Tristan|
Taylor, appearing as a naughty airport security guard, takes on pilot Tristan and passenger Mick by a security check. Mick drops down to tongue her twat before Taylor stoops down to suck both of them. The scene magically cuts to Mick fucking Taylor from behind as she continues to take Tristan in her mouth before she rides Tristan reverse cowgirl style. They have Tristan move his cock from her pussy to her ass so Mick can join in with a double penetration, and they keep it up cutting to Taylor rolled over for a cowgirl DP. They back off so Mick can fuck her pussy missionary style before he lets Tristan take another go at Taylor's tail doggie style. Taylor takes a facial from Mick and pop on the ass from Tristan to finish things up.
This is a slightly below average scene. Taylor's outfit is horrid to start things out, but she gets into the action very well throughout the scene. Once again, however, talent in front of the camera doesn't mean that there's talent behind it. This is one of the better scenes in the movie, but it still doesn't make it to the average mark.
I know that Love Between the Cheeks was supposed to be about people taking it up the ass, but I didn't expect the viewer to be one of those people. This is easily one of the most poorly done movies I've seen in a long time, and there was a large part of me that was happy that the movie didn't last anywhere close to what the boxcover claimed. This is really too bad because there is a heck of a lot of talent here! Maxxx Black was the only person in the cast who had me a little nervous going in, but even he seemed to put out a solid performance. Every girl looked to do a pretty solid job and there were many times I had a glimpse of some nice chemistry. Unfortunately, no matter how good a performance the performers put on, it just wasn't going to matter here. To start with, the camera work feels like the camera man just wasn't in to the action, and sadly it seemed better than the editing. The editing reminded me of watching a movie with a multiple angle option and a chapter break for every position change. Unfortunately, somebody left the remote control with a retard who randomly hit the angle button and who hit the fast forward button whenever he felt like it to speed through the movie. Love Between the Cheeks is easily one of the worst anal movies I've watched this year and I can't even recommend renting it to extreme fans of the performers in it.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Three's Company, Addicted to Sex, Darkside, I Love Lanny, Sophisticated Sluts, Sinfully Sexy, Ladie In Lust, and Underdressed & Oversexed. The photo gallery contains about sixty great looking snapshots and full screen photos. There's also bonus footage, weblinks, and DVD credits.
Bonus footage is included for Katsumi, Marie Luv, and Taylor Rain. Katsumi gives a strip tease lasting nearly five minutes. Katsumi starts out in a black skirt which comes off so she can play with her pussy, a black and sparky top, a beaded necklace, a bit of jewelery, and some wonderful thigh high black fuck-me boots. She plays with both her holes and even sucks her fingers clean. Marie's strip tease lasts about four and three quarter minutes, and starts with Marie dancing around in a short pink skirt with a short pink long sleeved shirt tied around her tits. She does a nice little dance as she works out of her skirt and shirt to reveal a sexy black and pink bra and panty set. She keeps stripping down, dancing around, and teasing, but never touches herself much. The Taylor Rain Shoot lasts about four and three quarter minutes as well. Taylor mostly just stands there as photos are snapped and she's told she's beautiful with very few comments from her.
This is a bit of a mixed bag. The teases are pretty good, but I guess Taylor's is to count as the “Behind the Scenes” listed on the back cover. If so, it's one heck of a disappointment for anybody wanting behind the scenes action. At under five minutes it's about as interesting as watching a Taylor Rain photo gallery. Thankfully Katsumi and Marie do a very nice job with their tease and masturbation scenes. There's some decent stuff here, but the behind the scenes claim barely holds up.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, group, anal, DP, interracial, and ass to mouth
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Suze Randall's DVDs can be found online for between about $16 and $25 with a few stores offering them for under $20. I'm not sure I can even recommend renting this one. There's some okay sex, but the camera work and editing ruin almost every scene. The technical aspects are a little weak, but there is a little effort put into the extras. This is an extremely disappointing DVD!
Note to Suze Randall: When's the last time you heard anybody who was happy with a mainstream porn movie that didn't even last an hour?
