Initial Expectations: Adam & Eve has been kind of hit and miss on their compilations. I know they were putting some good effort into this one, which gives me a lot of hope.
Initial Reaction: Although it has a couple sex scenes that lacked a bit, itís one of the best compilations Iíve seen.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting more romantic
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting nasty sex or a compilation focusing just on the gooey sex spots rather than entire scenes
Audio /Video Quality: When it comes to compilations, I never expect anything close to consistent technical aspects. Money Shots, however, is very consistent. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I didnít notice any background noises. The video is also very nicely done. The scenes are normally well lit, but there is a little grain here and there.
Music: Just like with the technical aspects, the musical style and balance normally changes with the scene in a compilation, and it does just that here. Things range from absolutely no music to the music being basically the only audio in the scene.
Menus: The menus are very nicely done. The main menu has a little animation, and the chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of the movie and the cast from the scene.
The Feature: Adam & Eve is back with another thematic compilation. This time around, theyíre focusing on the gooey stuff. Messy facials, internal pop shots, and squirting are all the focus of this compilation. Each scene is nicely broken apart by a screen which lets you know where the scene originally came from.
Kylie Ireland gets busy with Jason McCain in a scene from Beauty & The Bitch. Kylie starts out giving him an aggressive blowjob before letting him go down on her pussy. She shows her nasty self by having Jason give her pussy four fingers as well as trash talking at him through almost the entire scene. Jason starts out fucking her from behind, and joins in on some of the trash talking. They follow it up with a reverse cowgirl ass fucking with Kylie rubbing, spreading, and fingering her pussy. Kylie hops off to suck Jason until he gives her a pretty average pop on her face. Itís a very hot and nicely nasty scene.
Tawny and Ricky Robertsí scene from Luc Wylderís Amateur Angels 2 is next. Of course, Tawny and Ricky talk with Luc a little before they start kissing each other passionately. Ricky helps Tawny out of her clothes, revealing a great pair of natural tits, and then makes his way down to give each of Tawnyís holes a good tonguing. She returns the favor by giving Ricky a nice slow blowjob along with some amazing eyes before letting him fuck her in a few of the common positions around the kitchen. Finally, Ricky brings things to a nicely natural finish by popping in Tawnyís nicely shaved pussy and letting her squeeze it out. Itís a hot scene with the great chemistry that you rarely get outside of a real life couple. I know Iíve been very critical of Ricky in the past, but he and Tawny really do a nice job here.
Miss Jackieís Full Service Salon checks in next with a scene starting out with Keri Windsor giving Eva a massage. As usual with porn flicks, the massage turns towards sex, and makes me wonder what kind of training massage therapists go through. For the ones that are actually licensed, are they required to maintain the reverse cowgirl position or a pile driver for a certain period of time with a guy that looks and smells like Ron Jeremy after an all day shoot? Then again, maybe thatís just the massage therapists in adult films. Keri starts out oiling up and rubbing Evaís bare ass, and then lets her hands work their magic up and down her back. She follows suite with her tongue before stripping off her clothes and letting her tongue work its way around Evaís pussy and ass. Keri dons a strap-on next, works on Evaís pussy until she squirts all over it, and then lets Eva clean off her juices with her mouth. Keri goes back to work on Evaís pussy with her fingers, and once again works her to a squirting finish that she gets to lick up. Itís a very hot scene, and another great selection for a compilation. Keri and Eva have great chemistry together, and really seem to enjoy working on each other. This was the first feature that made me notice Keri Windsor, and watching it now, I know just why I kept following her.
Justine Romee and Brett Rockman get busy in a scene from the easily forgotten Natural Selection in the fourth scene. She sucks and tit-fucks him to warm him up before laying back so he can let his tongue and fingers do the walking across her pussy. They start fucking missionary style before moving on to fuck standing up. Unlike the many of Roy Karchís scenes, this one doesnít concentrate heavily on close-ups. Instead it works with distance shots that make Justine and Brett look like theyíre on the other end of a basketball court. I can understand wanting to do this with Brett, but Justine is always enjoyable to watch. She finishes things up trying to take Brettís nut butter on her face, but he has problems getting it that far. Itís a pretty average scene that should have been much better.
Things return to Luc Wylderís Amateur Angels series, this time going for the third installment of the series with Nikki Love, a raven haired beauty, and Holly Hollywood, a natural brunette whoís a well known gash-master. Holly starts out working the newbie over, starting at her tits and then working down to her feet and pussy. She licks Nikki and then works her over with a toy before letting Nikki reciprocate. Nikki doesnít rove around nearly as much as Holly, and concentrates on her pussy using her tongue and a dildo, all the way until Holly squirts. Itís an extremely hot scene thatís a real winner! The girls have some great chemistry together and never really seem to hold back throughout the entire scene while having the time of their life.
Adrianna Sage shows up for the next scene, which comes from Invisible and pais her with Mark Davis. It isnít clear whether Mark is fantasizing about getting busy with Adrianna or whether itís actually happening, but either way Markís clothes disappear and Adrianna wraps her luscious lips around his cock. She takes him all in down to the base of his cock with a smile on her face while looking up seductively. He returns the favor by running his tongue and fingers in and around her pussy and asshole as she continues to have a great smile on her face. He continues to play with her pussy as she lays on her back and sucks his cock before finally turning around so he can fuck her pussy from behind. She rolls over and lets Markís cock work on her ass as well as giving her ass the cameramanís favorite reverse cowgirl ride. She finishes off the scene by nicely taking Markís pop across her face. Itís a very hot scene and shows why Adrianna is headlining this feature.
Chennin Blanc and Cheyne Collinsí scene from Sex Across America: Los Angeles shows up next. Right from the start, this scene amazed me with its chemistry. Although I always expect a lot more chemistry from real life couples, this one even skyrocketed past those expectations. Cheyne patiently works over Chenninís tits and pussy before she sucks his cock, and then gives her a good boning in the common positions. Thereís some nice teasing and energy put into the scene, and Cheyne gives it a nice finish by popping in Chenninís snatch and letting her squeeze it back out and onto his cock and the bed. From how much Chennin squeezes out I canít help but think that itís a good thing Cheyne popped in her puss. If he would have tried giving her a facial she might have drowned. Needless to say, this is a very good scene, and shows why I think both Chennin and Cheyne deserve a lot more attention than they get.
The penultimate scene features Lee Stone taking on Gauge and Bridgette Kerkove in a scene from The Real Thing. Bridgette and Gauge, who in my opinion is highly overrated even though she does have an amazing body, start the next scene off with a little kissing as butcher Lee Stone watches from behind the counter. Bridgette helps Gauge out of her fast food burger joint outfit to kiss and caress her better before Gaugeís tongue tempts Bridgetteís bald beaver. It doesnít last long before Lee magically appears beside them and they team up to work on his cock. The girls give him a great warmup before Gauge lays on her back for Lee to fuck her as she eats Bridgetteís pussy. Gauge spreads her legs while sitting in the produce rack so Bridgette can fuck her while Lee pounds away on her pussy from behind. The girls finally team up to share an above average pop from Lee between their mouths. Itís a pretty average scene thatís held back some by the camera work and editing, and strikes me as very typical for the movie.
Finally, Tabitha and Jonathan Stern get busy in a scene from Forbidden Lust with Bridgette Kerkove and Dale DaBone watching at first and Alexandra Silk giving a few instructions. They start off caressing each otherís body with Alexandra rubbing each of them for luck, before Tabitha rides Jonathanís tongue and finally leans down to enjoy his cock as well. Jonathan gets to keep laying back as Tabitha rides him before she lays down on her stomach and lets him fuck her from behind. They finish things up in missionary, with Jonathan blowing his ball butter in Tabithaís pussy. Itís a great scene to end things with, having both nice energy and great chemistry.
Money Shots hits the gold in many ways, but isnít quite perfect. Most of the scenes are very good, but there are a couple that didnít hit me completely right for one reason or another. With a focus on facials, squirting, and cream pies, I would have expected that if the scene didnít have any squirting or cream pies that the facials would be way above average. A couple of them werenít, but on the other hand, they also more than made up for it with the heat in the scene. With the heat in these scenes, even though the scenes didnít completely fit with the theme I have a hard time knocking the feature because of their heat. The only real exception was Brett Rockman and Justine Romeeís scene, which was the biggest dud of the entire feature but was still fairly average.
Iíll admit that I have a kind of hard time judging compilation features, since porn is such a subjective thing, and Money Shots is no different. In compilations I often look at many of the details other than just the scenes, because I think thatís what makes a comp stand out above the pack. A compilation disc should be a perfect way to showcase just what a studio has to offer, and if done right, should have you adding several movies to your wish list by the time youíre done watching it. Since youíre often trying to satisfy many tastes in porn styles, I donít normally expect to have every scene skyrocketing off the chart. Money Shots shows all the extra care that makes this a great compilation, as well as a couple scenes that didnít hit me quite right. Before each scene starts you get a screen that lets you know where the scene originally came from, and the chapter menu lets you know whoís in each scene. If this isnít enough, thereís even real credits at the end that give you both the name of the original movie as well as who was in it. To me, this kind of care raises the overall quality of the DVD up a notch from the sex level, and makes Money Shots one of the best compilations Iíve seen.
Extras: For a compilation, Adam & Eve really put a lot of effort into their extras. The photo gallery includes about three dozen very nice looking snapshots and full screen photos, each of which identifies the performers and the movie it came from. Bios including personal information, a photo, and a link to the starís scene are included for almost the entire female cast. Thereís also DVD credits (which are well deserved here), website information, and bonus scenes.
The first bonus scene comes from Private Moments and features Nikita Denise taking on Ian Daniels and Chris Cannon. After a quick meditation, Nikita frees the guysí guys, and gives them a welcoming kiss. The guys return the favor, trading off on eating and being eaten, with everybody taking time to make sure theyíre properly warmed up. The guys keep trading back and forth as they fuck Nikita, and hold off on fucking her ass until shortly before they team up to double penetrate her. Nikita finishes things up with a double facial, but has time between the two pops to prepare herself decently. Itís an okay scene, but slow enough in pace that it sometimes becomes a little boring.
The second bonus scene comes from The Edge and features Ava Vincent and Jessie Jordan taking on Chris Cannon and Steven St. Croix at a pair of glory holes. Chloe and Ava Vincent watch Jessie Jordan as she sucks a cock at a glory hole first. Chloe then puts off visiting the hole herself by telling Ava to take her turn at the remaining hole first, which Ava eagerly does while clucking like a chicken at Chloe. Both Jessie and Ava do a nice job working over the cocks with their hands and mouth, and also normally manage to keep a hand free to diddle themselves as well. Ava ends things taking her cockís juice on her tits, with Jessie following suit shortly after. Itís a pretty good scene, but I have to admit that I thought the cocksucking left a bit to be desired since the idea of glory holes does absolutely nothing for me. The girls playing with themselves made this scene as good as it was for me. Thanks to the chapter menu, we know that the cocks are provided by Chris Cannon and Steven St. Croix.
