The Short Story
Initial Expectations: There's a great lineup of ladies here and Rico has turned out some great scenes. There's nothing on the box to indicate it, but with some of the names here I'm expecting a compilation.
Initial Reaction: It's a great collection of Rico Strong's scenes, but is held back slightly by its seeming like it's trying to hide being a compilation.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a collection of some of the scenes Rico Strong's done for Smash Pictures
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting an original movies
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good for this release. The audio has a few minor background noises, most of them being from the camera, but also has a nice balance while staying nicely clear. The video is presented in a mix of non-anamorphic and full frame formats, although some of the movies were originally presented in the anamorphic format. It's normally clear, well lit, and smooth, but there are a few minor blemishes that don't interfere with the presentation much.
Menus: The main menu works through a few stills and a little animation before settling in on a very graphic still of Rico in action along with a little background animation. The chapter menu nicely lets you choose a scene based on a still of each Mama and her name. There's also a position menu to let you jump directly to specific sex acts.
The FeatureRico Strong has made quite a name for himself with his big cock, and here Smash has decided to collect five of his scenes with some of the older women he's taken on.
|Scene 1 – Friday and Rico Strong|
The opening scene comes from Cheating Housewives 5. Busty bottle blonde Friday starts out chatting on the phone with a friend about how she has the big house with all the stuff now that she's married, but her husband's gone so much that she's never felt so lonely. Her call's interrupted by Rico, who's going door to door looking for donations for underprivileged kids. She invites him in for a little discussion after running a find around him, and grinds against him while having him tell her about his foundation. Rico looks like he's resisting at first, but can't hold out and pulls up Friday's jean skirt to grab her ass and give it a few slaps. She moves down to tease him with her hair before he pulls out his cock for Friday to start sucking. Friday even works her big fat titties around it and takes him all the way into her throat before letting him fuck her from behind. She rolls over for a little missionary work before following Rico to a staircase to suck his cock and ride it in each of the cowgirls with plenty more cocksucking mixed in. Finally Friday gets down to let Rico pop on her big fat titties as well as sucking a bit out and taking a taste from what's on her tits.
This scene is every bit as hot as I hoped it would be. Friday plays up the seduction very nicely and then does a great job taking on Rico and his big bone. There's plenty of times where she seems downright pleased with how much cock she's taking on, and the chemistry between them helps the scene to be lots of fun. Throw in a nice pace and great camera work and you have a winner of a scene.
|Scene 2 – Nina Hartley and Rico Strong|
The next scene comes from White Wife Black Cock 8. When Nina brings some food out to colored folk Rico and Tyler her hubby Dr. Pharmacist hired for $5 a day, she quickly sets her sights on Rico with the thought of his big black cock. She drops down to get his pants out of the way and checks him out through his shorts before pulling them out of the way so she can stroke and suck his cock and balls. She strips down as she sucks Rico before standing up and leaning against the wall for him to fuck her from behind. Nina takes Rico all the way inside her before having him lie back so she can ride him cowgirl style. They also get in some spooning before Nina sucks his cock with a quick break to hide when her hubby comes back to check on them. Nina comes back out and rides Rico a little more after her hubby leaves, and finishes things up taking a decent pop on her tongue with hide eyes.
This is another hot and fun scene. The opening isn't quite as over the top as the opening scene, but there's still plenty of humor with the hubby playing a great jerk and Rico adding some great humor with the help of Tyler Knight. The sex is pretty darn good here, and I can't help but be amazed at how well Nina takes all of Rico's cock. She gets into it very well and there's a great feeling of chemistry and enjoyment that comes out of the scene. Sadly, the audio is a bit off here with a balance and level that changes a bit throughout the scene as well as a very audible comment from Bishop behind the camera. Despite those problems, this scene still has some great fun with racial humor while also providing some solid sex.
|Scene 3 – Druuna and Rico Strong|
Druuna, a good looking brunette, answers the door in a black and white leopard print dress to find big and black Rico at the door to see her picture. She shows it to him before letting him know that her ex-husband is late on alimony so she's selling his painting to pay her bills. She increases the offer to anything else he thinks might be worth a bit of money around before she slides over and kisses him as their hands start to wander around each other. Druuna encourages him to play with her pussy before Rico drops down to eat it. She sucks his cock in return before bending over for Rico to tongue her ass, and then has him fuck her doggie style. Druuna has a nice orgasm before sucking Rico clean and lying back for him to fuck her missionary style, and makes sure to give him a little show before riding him cowgirl style. Finally, Druuna gets down and lets Rico stroke himself to an okay dribbly pop around her face.
This is another very hot scene. Druuna looks great, and she puts out some great energy and vocals without going overboard. She looks to have a few very real orgasms as she and Rico fuck, and they also have some very nice chemistry. The scene moves along very nicely with some well done camera angles and a nicely done setup to start it right. This is a hot and well done scene.
|Scene 4 - Kaylynn and Rico Strong|
The penultimate scene comes from Whale Tail 2. When Kaylynn’s Mercedez breaks down, she ends up hitchhiking for a red. She checks her black whale tail sticking out above her jeans, and looks fantastic with her white shirt tied up around her black bra. Luckily Rico has a good Samaritan streak in him and stops to pick her up. He even opens the door for her, and can’t resist checking out her ass as she gets in. When they stop at Rico’s bud’s place, Kaylynn comes in to freshen up. They play around a bit before she breaks out his cock and teases him by blowing all around it before giving it a lick. She moves on to see how much of his big black cock she can take in her mouth before bending over and seeing how much of his cock she can take in her pussy. They head to the bedroom next, where Kaylynn lies back to pull off her pants before riding Rico in both cowgirls. She slides Rico’s cock into her ass reverse cowgirl style as well as letting Rico spear it doggie style. Finally, Kaylynn rolls over and lets Rico give her a shot of seed over her mouth.
This is a darn hot scene. Kaylynn and Rico work the tease very well to start things out, and I love how they build up the chemistry with their play before she breaks out his cock. I’m amazed at how well she takes Rico’s cock in each of her holes, and she doesn’t shy away from the facial in the least either. This is a great scene.
|Scene 5 - Tiffany Mynx, Rico Strong, and Marco Banderas|
The final scene comes from Cheating Housewives 2. Tiffany starts things out lying on her back with her big ‘ole titties bouncing around as Marco fucks her. She lets him suck on her titties and pulls his thigh so he fucks her deeper. Everything goes well until she calls him Rico, and Marco just doesn’t buy her explanation that he’s a black guy that she fantasizes about taking her on with Marco. After Marco leaves, Tiffany journeys into her fantasy, where she takes on both guys in the living room. She and Marco kiss while Rico gropes her ass before she drops to her knees and takes Marco to her throat. She doesn’t make Rico wait long, and works her oral skills back and forth between them while also giving them some nice eyes and plenty of stroking. Tiffany even takes them both into her mouth at the same time a bit before pulling down her baby blue panties and bending over so Rico can fuck her form behind while Marco admires her tits and has her suck his cock. She turns around so Marco can have a turn fucking her and so she can have another taste of Rico’s meat. Marco has Tiffany lie back so he can watch Rico fuck each of her holes while getting his cock sucked before sliding underneath so he and Rico can completely fill her up with a cowgirl style double penetration. Rico pulls out and lets Tiffany have a reverse cowgirl anal ride on Marco’s cock for a bit before sliding himself into her snatch. The guys even pick her up and give her a midair DP before letting Tiffany back down to get a double face full of nutty goodness.
This is a darn impressive scene. Yes, Tiffany has been known for years as being a vocal fuck who doesn’t seem to hold much back, and nothing’s changed here. The only thing that seems to change is how impressed I am with her. She’s come and gone from the world of porn many times, and I think there’s a part of me that lowers my expectations every time she does. Thankfully, Tiffany never seems to lower herself to my fears of what her performance might be like, and here she might even kick things up a notch. She takes on Rico’s huge cock like it was nothing, and puts out a nicely vocal performance without going overboard. Perhaps the thing I liked most about this scene was the view of swinging in Tiffany’s fantasy. Marco seems to really get into the idea of sharing her with another guy, and that definitely kicked the scene up a notch. There’s great chemistry throughout the entire scene, and Tiffany never really shows a preference between the two guys. This is a very nice way to end the compilation, and there’s plenty of heat to go around.
Rico's Bangin' Yo Mama has a nice selection of Rico Strong's scenes for Smash. You get Rico from his early days up to some of his current scenes, and with partners like Nina Hartley, Kaylynn, and Tiffany Mynx you have one heck of a lineup of female talent to work with him. There's also a very nice collection of sex acts here, including Kaylynn and Tiffany somehow taking Rico up their ass instead of just letting him have their pussy. The problem for me is that this is a compilation while the cover makes it look like it could be a brand spanking new release. In fact, if this is your first Smash release it might look like a new release as well as there's nothing here to let you know where the scenes come from. To me, this is just plain stupid as this release should have the potential to draw porn fans into some of Smash's other series. There's no way to know that if you love all of the G-strong tease in Kaylynn's scene that Smash has several installments of their Whale Tail series with similar comments about the interracial fun with Nina Hartley's scene from the White Wife Black Cock series or the cheating themes from the Cheating Housewives series that's found here. Even if it's a pain to put in the main movie, it could very easily be added into the chapter menu or the opening or closing credits. Rico's Bangin' Yo Mama has plenty of hot sex, but a feeling like Smash is trying to pull one over on the consumer by not letting them know that it's a compilation holds it back a little for me.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Secretary's Day, White Wife Black Cock 7, Registered Nurse, Clothes Freaks, Mother Lode, Cheating Housewives, Whale Tail, and Teen Idol 4. The photo gallery lasts about five and a half minutes with about six seconds per good looking snapshot or full screen photo. There's also website information, and as usual with Smash, the ability to watch the movie with or without the story.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, interracial, titty fucking, group, anal, and DP
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Smash DVDs can be found online for between $14 and $24 with most stores offering them in the $20 range. If you're a fan of Rico Strong but don't want to pick up all of his Smash movies, this one should be well worth the money. On the other hand, if you've followed most of Smash's releases odds are you've seen this one and can easily pass it by. The technical aspects are nicely done, which is nothing new with Smash, but there isn't much effort put into the extras. This is a compilation with nicely chosen scenes that could have used a touch more effort.
Note to Smash Pictures: There's a lot of people who don't have problems with compilations discs as long as they know it going in. Disguising this one as a regular release doesn't make you look the most honest.
