The Short Story
Initial Expectations: This has been a joke of an interactive series with Anarchy coming off as a lying piece of crap every time. My only real expectations here are to be lied to on the cover.
Initial Reaction: Boring sex, stupidity, and misdirection do not a good interactive release make.
Who Should Watch It : Insomniacs
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who can
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects leave plenty to be desired. Although the audio in most of the movie is okay, there are several spots where the background noises around the camera come across as loud or louder than Hillary does. The video is also extremely lackluster. It has a soft look that just seemed cheap and a bit of camera motion.
Music: Thereís a bit of music during the opening tease that dominates the audio. Itís not too impressive.
Bullshit, Borderline, and Boneheaded Advertising: As usual, Anarchy has loaded up their cover with plenty of questionable claims. The front cover lists claims of Various Angles, Extremely Interactive, Strip Tease, Foot Job, Blowjob, Titty Job, Hand Job, Various Toys, Anal Sex, Hypercore, Tease Menu, Shot Exclusively For DVD, Point of View (P.O.V.), and Different Sex Positions. The back cover lists claims of Get to Know Hillary, Multiple Preview Trailers, Behind the Scenes, Digital Stereo Sound, Multiple Layer Menus, Website Access, All Region Coding, and PC DVD-ROM Compatible. First, the true claims. This DVD really does contain Strip Tease, Foot Job, Blowjob, Hand Job, Anal Sex, Hypercore, Get to Know Hillary, Multiple Preview Trailers,Digital Stereo Sound, Multiple Layer Menus, Website Access, All Region Coding, and PC DVD-ROM Compatible. Yes, thereís a bit of bullshit here. To start with, thereís no Titty Job in the movie that I noticed, and if it is itís extremely short without any choice to take you to it like an interactive release should have. Thereís also the claim of Tease Menu. You do have the choice between starting with either foreplay or sex, but thereís a difference between foreplay and teasing. You donít have any choices for Hillary to tease you with different body parts or between her using her fingers or toys to play with herself for you, like you would with an Extremely interactive virtual sex DVD like Digital Sin, Digital Playground, Smash Pictures, or Wicked Pictures has put out. The only choice you have for teasing is for Hillary to ride the Sybian, but thatís buried in the sex menu so you canít get to it if youíre in the foreplay section. Finally, thereís the claim of both Get to Know Hillary and Behind the Scenes. When you select Get to Know Hillary on the extras menu, youíre given Hillary BTS. Itís only one extra rather than two, with the cover making it look like thereís twice as many extras revolving around Hillary.
Then thereís the borderline claims. The Multiple Toys claim comes in here for me because as I stated before, although thereís two toys to choose from, the DVD is set up so you canít really switch between them easily. The same can be said for the Point of View (P.O.V.) claim. Yes, thereís some POV footage, but thereís not a lot of it and the only way you can go right to it is by pure luck. Sometimes itís better to not make a claim than to make a claim thatís barely true and could be taken the wrong way, but Anarchy has never learned that lesson.
Finally, thereís the boneheaded claims. Various Angles? All that means is that Anarchy doesnít want to quit using the ďMultiple AnglesĒ lie that they had on the top of most of the earlier releases in this series. Besides, if itís POV, why are there various angles? Shot Exclusively for DVD? That might mean something if there were ďInteractive VHSĒ releases being made. Finally, thereís the wonderful Different Sex Positions claim. Iím not sure what theyíre different from, as I canít think of many adult movies Iíve watched that didnít have missionary, reverse cowgirl, and doggie, but with how Anarchy distorts things they may very well mean that thereís more than one position here. Once again Anarchy earns themself a full point penalty due to their cover claims, and shows them deserving of somebody putting a hungry baby alligator in their pants.
Menus: The main menu has a slightly fuzzy clip of the movie with a little animation. Itís far from impressive.
The FeatureHillary is a cute and young blonde with small natural titties and a shaved pussy. Anarchy is a company known for half-assing even their best attempts and for appearing unable to tell the complete truth even if they tried. Here they team up for another so-called interactive sex simulator.
Hillary goes through plenty of sex acts. She starts out in a pink and black bra and panty set dancing behind a mesh curtain before coming forward and stripping down. She changes into a black and white striped bra and black panties that she strips out of before working herself over with her fingers and toys. She takes her dildo in both holes, rides a Sybian, and lets John play with her pussy with his fingers. She reciprocates by working on his cock with her hand, feet, and mouth before letting him fuck her pussy in reverse cowgirl and doggie. Hillary also lets John fuck her ass missionary and reverse cowgirl style before taking a load in her mouth, gargling it, and swallowing it down.
Sexually, I was very disappointed with Playing With Hillary Scott. I can see why people like Hillary, as sheís vocal, cute, and young, but here I was completely underwhelmed. Hillary plays to the camera okay and is pretty vocal. She also puts in some okay energy. The camera work and editing, however, reminded me of a nursing home with how bland and slow it was. The movie never came close to making me hard, and I was so bored with it that I considered adding having Solitaire on the PC I watched this on to the list of things Iím going to be thankful for this November. Although some people donít care about the virtual sex and interactive aspect of the Playing With series, this one doesnít even make the grade sexually.
The geriatric camera work and editing arenít all the only things that suck about Playing With Hillary Scott technically. As usual, the movie plays like a badly edited and overly long scene with a chapter menu in the upper left corner of the screen rather than having looping and giving the viewer the controls they expect in a real interactive sex simulator. Yes, thereís some control to the toys, but it doesnít really do you any good because one choice is in the foreplay / tease section while the other is in the sex section. This is all the more laughably inept because the two segments run one after the other. If that isnít bad enough, thereís also several black screens that pop up with labels like ďFuck the Bull Reverse Cow GirlĒ (before one of the Sybian segments), ĒHand Job POVĒ, ĒBlow Job StandingĒ, plus others. The ineptitude isnít limited to the editing bay, since you get to see things like the guy holding the smoke machine next to the door that Hillary walks through even though the opening tease has become completely generic for this series.
Playing With Hillary Scott is a near worthless release. Hillaryís cute, but the sex is completely dead. As usual itís really pushing things to refer to this as an interactive sex simulator, and the poor editing of this one hold it back even more than normal. Iím really not sure how I was able to hold back from whimpering and banging my head on the desk mumbling ďMake it stop, please make it stop.Ē while watching this one. Iím not sure Iíd even recommend Playing With Hillary Scott to her fans.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts almost a minute and a half with about three seconds per decent looking snapshot or full screen photo. Thereís also web links, a featurette on Hillary, and the same five trailers that appear to be on every other DVD in this series.
Get to Know Hillary lasts about a minute and three quarters. Hillary and Jimmy D. chat a little after her scene where she talks about having cum breath and not having a website, as well as showing off for him a little. Itís extremely forgettable, and Iím not sure itís even worth checking out.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, tease, masturbation, toys, anal, ass to mouth, handjob, footjob, oral, and swallowing
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of the Playing with series can be found online for between about $13 and $25 with several stores offering it near the low end. Iím not sure you should rent this one even if youíre a fan of Hillary. The sex is boring and the DVD makes a deck of cards look like a technical achievement. The technical aspects donít get much above average and there isnít much effort put into the extras. This DVD is best used as a coaster.
