Production Date: 1993
Director: Paul Thomas
Cast: Lene' Hefner, Lacy Rose, Sierra, Brittany
O'Connell, Mark Davis, Jon Dough, Nick East,
Steven St. Croix
Extras: The typical Vivid Wave extras. Previews,
bios, 'interactive' sex, and AVN highlights.
It's the same extras as the other Wave DVDs.
Audio Quality: Average. There are a couple of
spots that seem like they may have been dubbed,
but it's not overly noticeable. There are also a
few places where the sound seems to lose its
depth, which probably added to my feeling of
parts being dubbed.
Video Quality: The picture shows a lot of grain,
but I think that comes more from the original
than the transfer.
Music: The music comes and goes throughout the
movie, but since it seems to be on purpose, it
isn't too bad. When the music does stop, it
seems to be the end of the song and you have some
of the sounds of the people.
Initial Expectations: Paul Thomas normally does a
pretty good porno without much plot but with some
average to better than average sex. With 'Mask'
only being 73 minutes long, I'm kind of afraid
that Vivid went wild editing the movie to fit
some of their extras on the DVD.
Initial Reaction: 'Mask' is pretty good, but it
sure feels like somebody edited a bunch out.
Review: 'Mask' is the story of David (Mark
Davis), a scientist who seems to have it all:
great job, beautiful fiance, etc. Lene', his
fiance, is there to meet him as soon as he walks
out of the building he works at. When they pull
up at their house, she immediately opens the car
door on her side to give her a little more room
to blow him. Thankfully, this means that we get
to watch him get a blow job, also. This turns
out to be a pretty good scene, as the sex happens
throughout the house. Lene' gets ate out on the
staircase, and then they fuck at the top of the
stairs. The end of the scene was a let down, as
the last minute or so of the scene he sat down on
the stairs and jerked off while fingering Lene'.
I can understand that Lene' would take a lot out
of a guy, but at least let her finish him off!
Everything's going David's way until the
next day when he screws up in the lab and the
explosion leaves him with a face that only
Dominoes could love. His fiance leaves him as
soon as she catches a glimpse of his face. Even
the doctor and nurse cringe when they look at
him. The bum on the corner can't even look at
him without cringing. Since he's a scientist, he
realizes the only way he's going to get any is
with hookers. Enter 'cheerleader' Lacy Rose.
She's getting paid (extra as soon as she sees
him) and she won't even do him. He just sits
above wrapped up like the invisible man and
watches Nick East and Steven St. Croix do her.
This is a slightly less than average threesome.
I couldn't help but feel like this scene was
edited so Vivid could fit some of their extras on
the DVD since you only saw a cumshot from Nick
and not Steven.
Luckily, David has a partner (the one who
told him the correct way to mix chemicals) who
smuggles him into the lab where he makes a mask
to make him look normal again (Jon Dough gets to
play David now). He's so happy as he leaves the
lab that he even gives money to the bum on the
corner. Of course, the first stop any guy would
make as soon as he realizes he's good looking is
the closest street corner where he picks up
Sierra and Brittany O'Connell. Man, this guy
sure knows a lot of hookers for having had a
fiance like Lene! I'm not criticizing his
choices though. You can't go wrong with Brittany
O'Connell, and but I haven't been much of a fan
of Sierra. I remember hearing about Sierra some
back in college, but was never that impressed
with what I saw of her. Even in 'Face Dance Part
1' I would only consider her average to slightly
above average. In 'Mask', however, she does a
great job. She has a great amount of enthusiasm
that carries through the entire scene from when
she can't wait to get inside the house for a
piece of Brittany to Jon Dough shooting his load
across her stomach and then popping up like a
baby bird looking for another worm. Most of the
scene is between Sierra and Brittany and works
its way throughout the room. Sierra works
Brittany over in a huge leather chair, but barely
gives Brittany a chance to return the favor
before moving the action to a huge desk, where
they continue to work each other over while Jon
sits back in a chair and watches, not even
breaking it out to stroke it. He waits for
Sierra and Brittany to do that. Once again,
Sierra dives into her work, but shares more
evenly with Brittany this time. Brittany then
mounts Jon as he sits in the chair and munches on
Sierra. She hops off to lay next to Sierra where
they continue to pleasure each other while Jon
pumps Sierra. Even after Jon shoots his load all
over Sierra's stomach she and Brittany finish
each other off before hopping down off the desk
to suck the last drop from Jon.
Next, we see David out on the town.
Where ever he goes, he seems to bump into Lene'.
Eventually, they talk and go out on a date where
Lene' says that she swears that she knows him.
Being the shy girl she is, Lene' then asks him if
he wants to fuck her (DUH!). They go back to her
place where he eats her out in the kitchen, and
then go to the bedroom where she strips for him
(somewhere in between she decided to change
clothes to take them off) and then gives him a
hand job before riding him cowgirl style.
Believe it or not, I actually felt sorry for a
male porn star here. I thought Jon was going to
fall asleep in the middle of the scene. Maybe he
was just concentrating hard on the job at hand,
but it sure looked like he was nodding off since
he looked bored when his eyes were open. Maybe
that's why they started spooning next. A change
of position might wake Jon back up. He even
seemed to have trouble blowing his load on Lene's
tits. Like I said, I couldn't help but feel
sorry for the guy.
Finally, Lene' touches up in the bathroom
and starts talking about the scientist named she
was seeing before and how he got in an accident
and she was going to marry him but he got in this
accident and the pictures wouldn't look right and
how could she walk up the aisle with a guy
looking like that and I want kids do you want
kids and.... David gets dressed and leaves while
Lene' is trying to figure out how to breathe
while talking. That's it. Okay...
Needless to say, 'Mask' could have been
better. The final scene lasted a half hour with
most of it being sex. The scene could have
easily been half as long and added a little plot
with David finding someone else and another sex
scene. The cover says he could have any woman he
wanted, let's see him get a new one without
Throughout the movie, I felt like
somebody went wild editing it. You never see any
position changes, and you only see one pop shot
out of two guys in a threesome. The picture is a
little grainy, but the movie was originally made
in 1993. For the age of the original, the
transfer seems pretty good.
Raincoat Factor: Medium. There isn't much to the
plot, but there's a bunch of story line in
between the scenes.
Overall: Although 'Mask' starts out fairly
strong, it loses its momentum throughout the
movie. The sex is pretty good, although it seems
edited and the last scene is way too long. You
might want to pick this up if you're a fan of
Lene' or Sierra.
