The Little Details
Running Time: 84 min. (cover states 115 min. which is might be true when one adds in the extras. I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of this claim, as it seems to make the feature look much more substantial than it actually is.)
Production Date: 8 / 7 / 2007
Director: Cash Markman
Cast: Brooke Banner, Brooke Belle, Faith Leon, Holly West, Rachel Roxxx, Alan Staffod, Alec Knight, Jack Venice, Nick Manning, Slick Rhodes, and Van Damage
The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Penthouse's movies have been a little hit or miss for me, but with Brooke Banner, Faith Leon, and Rachel Roxxx I'm a bit curious about this one.
Initial Reaction: It's a nicely done feature that's a very pleasant surprise.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting an adult feature that blends story, acting, and sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting nastier sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I think I only noticed one very minor background noise. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks pretty good. The camera work is steady, but it also gets a little dark at times.
Music: Music is included through most of the movie, and rests quietly in the background to help it all out.
Menus: The main menu blends the boxcover and a bit of the movie together with a little animation in a way that's simple but fun, and gives a good first impression. The chapter menu shows a bit of care, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the name of the girls in it.
The FeatureWhen Alan's partner decides to whack the wife of their mobster employer he has no choice but to take off. When he stops into a little roadside diner and motel he's taken by waitress Faith. The more he watches and chats with her, the more determined he is to take her with him. The only thing that holds him up is Faith telling him how the owner of the diner and motel has a stash buried somewhere behind the motel and that only he has the map.
|Scene 1 – Brooke Banner and Alec Knight|
Bottle blonde Brooke invites Alec to have a little bit of living dangerously knowing that her man will kill him if he finds out. They head into the bedroom where they strip down as they kiss and Brooke lays right down to start sucking his cock. She gets on all fours for Alec to fuck her with a little more oral mixed in and then lays back for him to fuck her missionary style. Brooke also rides Alec cowgirl style before taking his load on her chest.
This is a hot scene. It's a bit on the lighter side, but Brooke looks absolutely fantastic. She normally looks darn good, but she has her hair straight and cut at about shoulder length here rather than being a little longer and curlier, and it really looks great on her. Add in some great vocals and nice energy that keeps it at a realistic level than trying to go over the top, and you have sex that works very well. This was a nice start to the sex for Sex Over Easy.
|Scene 2 – Brooke Belle, Holly West, and Jack Venice|
Jack lays back for brunette Holly and dirty blonde Brooke to take turns sucking his cock and coming up to kiss him and let him lick their pussies as they get it on with each other a little as well. Jack and Holly team up on Brooke orally before Holly gets in the middle for Jack to fuck her doggie style as she plays with Brooke's pussy. Brooke slides forward so he can fuck her missionary style as the girls play with each other a little more and sixty-nine. Holly gets back up for a reverse cowgirl ride before Brooke takes one herself as well as letting Jack fuck her missionary style. Finally Jack pops in Brooke's mouth and on Holly's tits.
This is another hot scene. There's great chemistry all around it, with the girls getting into each other just as well as they got into Jack. Although Holly gets a little more of the fucking, there's a pretty good balance between the girls. The action also moves along at a nice pace with some very nice camera angles to capture it. This scene worked much better than I expected it to.
|Scene 3 – Faith Leon, Nick Manning, and Slick Rhodes|
As auburn haired Faith lets dirty old man Slick fuck her, she imagines that it's Nick instead. He kisses her tits before dropping down to lick and finger her pussy, and then lets Faith suck his fingers clean before he fucks her missionary style on the counter. Faith drops down to suck his cock before letting him take her doggie style, and even gets in a little cowgirl before they finish things up in missionary with Nick popping on her pussy.
This is another hot scene. The footage nicely moves from Slick fucking Faith to Nick fucking her, and the chemistry is nicely kicked up once Nick steps in. I like how the blowjob is mixed into the middle of the scene instead of making sure it starts out the scene, and the pace never slows down. This is a hot scene with a surprising amount of drive to it.
|Scene 4 – Faith Leon and Alan Stafford|
After a little poolside chat, Faith and Alan head back to his room where they flop on the bed and start kissing passionately. They strip Faith out of her bikini before Alan moves down to lick and finger her pussy before moving on to fuck her missionary style. Faith sucks his cock in return as he lays back on the bed, and mixes in some nice throat action and great looks, before she gets up to ride him cowgirl style. She also gets on all fours for some doggie fucking before Alan pops on her ass.
This is a darn hot scene. Faith looks great, and there's a dirty whore feeling about her in the scene that worked very well for me as well as the scene. There's some nice energy and vocals, and the scene once again moves along at a very nice pace with some nice angles. This is the hottest scene in the movie, and a very nice payoff to the buildup between Faith and Alan.
|Scene 5 – Rachel Roxxx and Van Damage|
Faith and Alan flash back to brunette Rachel getting it on with Van on the back of a classic pink Cadillac. Rachel quickly gets one cork-heeled wedge up on his shoulder as he fucks her missionary style. She sucks his cock before letting him fuck her form behind, and then gets down for the facial finish complete with some great eyes as she sucks him clean.
This is an okay scene. It fits into the movie well, but for some reason this scene didn't work as well for me. The chemistry is pretty good and the camera angles are almost as good as the others. I think the main thing that held this scene back is that the formula for the sex got all too visible here, and the chemistry between Rachel and Van just wasn't strong enough to mask it. This is a pretty average scene, but compared to the rest of the movie that leaves it to come in as the weakest scene in the movie.
Sex Over Easy is a surprisingly well done adult feature. The story is fairly light and almost completely told through Alan Stafford's monologue, but combined with the great job that Alan and Faith Leon both do with both the sex and the story it works extremely well. It pays some very nice respect to the old western and noir movies where the guy has to hide out in town but then finds a reason to stay and fight, and it also fits the sex into the overall movie nicely rather than cramming it in whenever somebody feels it needs a sex scene. The final scene between Rachel and Van is easily the weakest, and while Faith and Alan turn out the hottest scene in the movie, the others are all hot on their heels. Some of the lighting does get a little dark and the sex can be a little formulaic to hold the movie back a little, but the chemistry and well acted story work together so well that it's easy to look past a lot of the little things here. It's also strong enough that I barely noticed how short the movie was. I knew the length going in, but I quickly forgot about it while watching it and at the end of the movie it all seemed perfectly paced with a very nice balance between the sex and the story. Sex Over Easy is a great movie for anybody who wants a full fledged adult movie rather than a badly written and acted “movie” with sex crammed in here and there.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Slumber Party, Booty Call, Picturesque, Exxxtra Credit, Rexxx, and Speakeasy. The photo gallery lasts a little under three and a half minutes with about five seconds per good looking snapshot. There's also internet information and a bonus scene from Naughty Girls along with a very short photo gallery from it.
|Bonus Scene – Lexi Love, Chris Charming, Randy Spears, and Tony T.|
The bonus scene comes form Naughty Girls. Lexi calls in to tell about how her car broke down during a road trip and she was rescued by Chris and taken back to his place, where Randy and Tony also were. After she goes upstairs and strips down Randy comes up and starts worshiping her ass as well as sucking her tits. Lexi sucks and strokes his cock in return while giving him some great eyes, and as she blows him Tony comes in and starts fucking her from behind. The guys trade places so Randy can fuck her from behind as she sucks Tony, and soon after Lexi rolls to her back and lets Tony pop on her tits with Randy popping on her bush soon after. After an editing break to clean up, Chris arrives and Lexi starts working him over orally. Finally, she takes a pop from Chris in her mouth.
This is a pretty hot scene. It's soft and slow, and for much of the scene you just get voiceovers with Lexi telling the story instead of hearing the sex. For that reason there's a part of me that feels like I should have really been down on this scene, but I just couldn't help but like it. Lexi's story I think will play into a lot of people's fantasies, and although the sex was a bit soft and slow, there's was also chemistry there. This scene worked surprisingly well for me.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, group, lesbian, and rimming (female > female)
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Penthouse DVDs can be found online for between about $17 and $25 with several stores offering them for around $20. At the low end this one isn't too bad of a buy. The sex and story are both very nicely done, and there's a good balance between them. The technical aspects are nicely done, but the video can be a little dark at times. The extras are also a tad light by only having a bonus scene for a notable extra. This is a very nicely done movie on a DVD that shows a touch of effort.
Note to Penthouse: I hope you keep turning out features of this quality, but a little effort towards the extras with a behind the scenes featurette would have been very nice here. Also, please watch your cover claims a little better. If you're going to list a running time, please list only the feature as there are some people who don't care about things like trailers or photo galleries.
