Initial Reaction: Itís pretty average.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who likes a lot of light plot and long scenes or who doesnít like anal sex

Audio /Video Quality: The audio is clear and nicely balanced. The video is pretty good, but does have some grain and inconsistent lighting.
Music: The music is pretty standard porn music. It starts out nicely balanced with the rest of the audio but gets louder later in the feature.
Menus: The main menu has some animation and clips from the movie worked in that give the DVD a kind of fun feel from the start. The chapte r menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip and a scene number.
The Feature: Some people will do whatever it takes to solve a problem. When a strip club owner calls Paige Shagwell P.I. because he suspects that one of the girls is running a prostitution ring in his club, she goes undercover at the club as a stripper to try and figure out whoís doing it and bring her to justice. The only help she has is her partner Joe Shagwell, who joins her undercover as the DJ in the club. When they think they have the mastermind, they donít let it end there. Paige makes sure there are no loose ends left untouched.
Paige Shagwell, a very cute and natural dishwater blonde, starts things out with her partner Joe Shagwell in the restaurant they were talking in. Paige clears off a spot on the table so she doesnít have to worry about getting forked, and then lays back for Joe to finger and tongue her pussy. She strips off her dress before dropping down to work on Joeís cock with her hand and mouth while giving Joe some great eye contact. Paige works her way up to sit on Joeís cock next, but soon turns around and leans against the table so he can fuck her from behind. They continue to work around, as Paige seems to have a tendency to overdo things. It makes the scene pretty unbelievable and kills much of the chemistry between her and Joe. She finishes things off with a nice fac ial. Although it improves some as it goes on, itís a disappointing opening scene. Paige is extremely cute, but doesnít seem to have enough to carry a movie from this scene.
Gina Lynn starts out her strip show, and after teasing the guys a little brings Paige up on stage with her. They take their turn licking each other before really getting together and rubbi ng their pussies together, or at least bumping them against each other. DJ Joe tries to heat things up a little more by throwing a dildo up on stage that the girls use to work each otherís pussy over with. They finish things off with a little kissing that ends things very nicely. Itís a long scene, but lacks some heat and chemistry.
Tyler, who looks like he might have been dropped at birth from a second story window, gets a lap dance from Gina. Theyíre surrounded by Paige and another girl whoís giving dances, but as soon as they go away Gina starts to give Tyler much more than just a dance. She sucks his above average cock and then squat s down to fuck him. Both Tyler and Gina put in some nice effort, and work their way through quite a few positions including a very nice looking standing fuck. Gina finishes things up by taking a very nice facial from Tyler in and around her mouth. Although I didnít expect much from this scene, mostly because Travis looks like it takes most of his concentration to keep bladder control, itís a pretty hot scene. Gina and Tyler have very good chemistry together and put quite a bit of effort into their performance.
Jessica Ryder, a nice looking brunette whoís face reminds me a lot of Aprilís, and Mariah Myst, a nice looking dirty blonde with a couple tattoos, two nice natural girls Paige met at the club, come over to Paige and Joeís house after work. They take a dip in the pool and soon after Jessica and Mariah start to kiss and rub their hands over each other. Paige sits back to enjoy the show as Mariah drops down to lick Jessicaís tits and pussy, taking her time to work it right as Jessica talks dirty. Paige has them kiss and then switch positions so Jessica can lick Mariahís bald beaver and nice nubbins. Jessica turns around for Mariah to eat her from behind and has her spank her quite a few times. Paige continues to watch as Jessica goes back to eating, and even starts to mastu rbate a little as Jessica works on Mariahís pussy. They change around so Mariah can work Jessica over one last time as she sees how many fingers she can fit in Jessicaís pussy. Itís a pretty good scene since Mariah and Jessica seem to be really into each other. I would have liked Paige to have been in the scene a little more, but itís still a nice scene.
Azrael Archer, yet another nice looking dirty blonde, goes to Angeloís house for an outside job. After a little groping, Angelo dives his tongue into Azraelís ass before she fucks his hand and sits on his face. She returns the favor by sucking his thin cock and balls before they work each other over in a sixty nine. Azrael finally lays back and spreads her legs wide for Angelo to po und her pussy before riding his cock. Azrael finally lets Angelo take her from behind, followed by taking his impressive pop on her face. Itís another average scene with pretty average chemistry.
Between finishing up the case at the strip club and taking on the next case, Paige and Joe decide to take a little down time. Joe starts out his down time showing his boss how much he appreciates her by burying his head between her legs and tonguing her clit and slit. She returns the favor by warming up Joe orally before laying back on his desk for him to fuck her. The move over to the couch and continue in about the same position until Joe unleashes a nice pop on Paigeís face. Itís a pretty average scene, and Joe looks like heís having a hard time concentrating on the scene. He looks more like heís running baseball stats through his head and thinking about nuns than banging the beautiful babe on the end of his cock. It brings the scene down a bit, and ends the movie on another average note.
Paige Shagwell P.I.: Undercover Lap Dancer is kind of a mixed bag. The girls all look great, and Paige is almost too cute to be in porn. Unfortunately, most of the girls donít always seem to put their full potential into their scenes. They all seem happy, unlike some scenes where the girls seem to be there just for a check, but they donít seem to be really into their scenes. The scenes also seem to run a little long and feel like they could use a good editing, which I think is part of why they seem to lack heat. They go on so long that they seem to drag. Another reason they seem to go on for a long time is the camera frequently feels like itís in the wrong place. You can rarely see if a girl is giving good eyes during a blowjob since the camera catches it mostly from the side and rarely head on. It also focuses quite a bit on the close-up, which tends to bore me after a while, and doesnít mix up different views of the scene. Paige Shagwell P.I.: Undercover Lap Dancer is a great idea, but should have been a lot more fun than this.
Extras: The photo gallery contains about forty snapshots and full screen photos that have quite a range to them. Some look great, but some are saturated with or starved for light. If youíre a fan of Paige Shagwell or Gina Lynn you should be happy since both girls are featured prominently through the gallery. Bios are included for Paige Shagwell and Gina Lynn, neither of which really offer anything. Finally, thereís the standard assortment of trailers for movies offered by the Pleasure family, internet information, and phone sex commercials.
Themes: Straight, stripping, lesbian, spanking, toys, voyeurism, and rimming (male > female)
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Overall: Currently, Paige Shagwell P.I.: Undercover Lap Dancer can be found online for between $18 and $24 with quite a few stores offering it near the low end. Although itís a fun idea, Paige isnít quite able to carry it. The sex is pretty average, but the scenes run so long that they tend to drag. The transfer is pretty good, and frequently above average, but the extras lack a little.
Note to Pleasure: A little editing can sometimes go a long way. Although I sometimes agree that you can always use the remote if you think things are going on too long, you donít want the viewer to get carpal tunnel from using it.
