False Advertising: Although the front cover claims ”14 scenes, 18 Girls”, the evil, evil people over at Tom Byron Pictures have instead decided to give the viewer twenty six girls om twenty two scenes. I know I often penalize releases for false advertising, but I think I can let this kind of mistake slide.

What You Need to Know: Solo Sweethearts has Ivan collecting twenty six stars in twenty two solo scenes. For the most part the girls masturbate by themselves but some scenes mix things up by having two girls masturbating at the same time on a bed or couch while barely ever touching each other. The action is also mixed up a little with some of the girls starting off wearing only their porno pumps while others have to strip down. Although there isn't any anal play, there is a little toy usage for Bobbi Starr and Flower Tucci. Due to the short length of the scenes it does dominate their scenes, but it never seems like the focus of the movie.

Needless to say, with twenty two scenes in roughly an hour and a half the scenes are on the short side and the girls never get a chance to build things up much or give much of the great tease many of us have come to expect from Ivan. The scenes appear to have been shot during some of Ivan's other movies, and those who have followed a fair amount of his work for Tom Byron are bound to recognize some of the locations and outfits. That said, the action never feels like it's cutting room floor footage that didn't make it into the scene, but instead feels more like Ivan saying to the girls “Hey, we've got a few extra minutes, let's shoot a quick little five minute solo scene.”. As such the action works well, but I don't think I'm alone in having my expectations a little higher for this release with how well Ivan has drawn out his tease footage in the past. He does a very good job capturing the action for how short the scenes are and definitely has a great lineup of talent with Jessica Bangkok and Phoenix Marie really coming out on top. The rest of the cast does a nice job, and the action is nicely consistent, but I couldn't help but want more much of the time. Those who want their solo action wham, bam, thank you ma'am are bound to love Solo Sweethearts, but personally I would have much rather had half the scenes lasting twice as long.

Extras: Trailers for Seasoned Players 16 and Happy Handies, photo gallery (5:48), weblinks, and commercials. There's also a behind the scenes featurette lasting about four minutes with Ivan chatting with Gracie about what he wants and fooling around. He chats and has fun with some of the other girls as well with some excessive camera motion going on that started to turn my stomach which was too bad as there was some great chemistry between him and the girls.

Verdict: Those wanting short and sweet solo scenes should find this a very worthwhile purchase, but others might want to rent it first.

Note to Tom Byron Pictures: I know that this is a bit of a departure from the typical solo release, and although it didn't completely work for me it was still nice to see you try something a little different once again.
