Production Date: None given

Director: Axel Braun

Cast: Angelina Valentine, Chayse Evans, Jenny Hendrix, Marie Luv, Ryder Skye, Sadie West, Alan Stafford, Alec Knight, Chris Johnson, Cyrus King, and Tyler Knight

The Short Story

Initial Expectations: With the exception of Will Ryder's work, Hustler has come close to killing the parody genre for me. That said, with Axel Braun earning a nomination for Best Parody Director from the XRCO, I'm going into this one with a little hope.

Initial Reaction: It has some potential, but it rarely seems fully used.

Who Should Watch It : Extreme fans of the original TV show

Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for some of Axel Braun's better work

The Technical Stuff

Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty average. The audio is clear and pretty well balanced, but there's never anything that crisp or special about it. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and is a bit of a disappointment. For the most part it looks pretty average, but there are a few places where it just seems a little blurry.

Music: The music is nicely done. It has a nice balance with the rest of the audio and captures the feel of the original show nicely.

Menus: The main menu is pretty good and works together a little animation, stills, and clips from the movie for a decent first impression. The chapter menu is very generic and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip from each scene and a scene number. There's also a “Select a Star” option that lets you choose a scene based on a still of each girl and their name.

The Feature

In the late nineties, Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, and Rose McGowen came together in a a WB show about three witch sisters living together trying to survive magic, love, and of course, each other. Here Axel Braun focuses on it in yet another Hustler parody.

Scene 1 – Chayse Evans and Alan Stafford

Chayse gets it on with Alan at his office after letting him find the sexy little outfit she's wearing under her coat. They kiss and she lets him suck her tits before dropping down to suck and stroke his cock. Alan quickly eats her pussy as she lays back on his desk before fucking her missionary style and then lets him get up for a reverse cowgirl ride as he sits back in a chair. Alan takes a turn on his desk for Chayse to ride him cowgirl style before letting her have a slightly below average facial finish.

This is a pretty good scene. Alan and Chayse put out some good energy with nice chemistry. Chayse is great as Phoebe, and does a nice job leading into the scene. The only thing that really held the scene back is the camera work, which was extremely uninspired and left me feeling like every motion was there by accident. This scene makes it past the average mark, but not by a lot.



Scene 2 – Marie Luv and Tyler Knight

Marie starts out the next scene sucking and stroking Tyler's cock as he lays back in bed. The scene cuts to her riding him cowgirl style before they fuck missionary style and spoon. Marie gets on top to take a reverse cowgirl rectal reaming from Tyler and continues to give up the ass on her side and doggie style. Finally she lets Tyler dribble a small pop around her mouth before she sucks the last bit out.

This scene seemed like it had plenty of potential and nobody really cared to harness it. Marie and Tyler has some very nice chemistry and Marie puts out the ass every bit as great as usual. At the same time the camera work was as lazy as before and the entire scene had a very slow feel that made it seem almost like it was being drawn out. This scene made it to the average mark, but it didn't make it much past it.



Scene 3 – Ryder Skye and Chris Johnson

Brunette Ryder puts a spell on Chris to seduce him. She lets him check out her tits as they kiss and she gropes his cock before moving down to suck and stroke his cock. He helps Ryder out of her panties and they pull her skirt aside before she rides him reverse cowgirl style and lets him spoon her. They fuck cowgirl before returning to reverse cowgirl, and even get in a bit of spooning. Finally Chris pops on Ryder's stomach.

This is a pretty good scene. Chris and Ryder have good chemistry, and the scene moves along at a good pace. The camera work seems a little better here, but the limited positions does hold the scene back a bit. This is one of the better scenes in the movie, but that isn't always saying much.



Scene 4 – Sadie West and Alec Knight

Alec takes on human form to get busy with Sadie. They kiss passionately and start stripping down before Alec worships Sadie's holes with his tongue from behind. She sucks his cock in reciprocation with some nice stroking, eyes, and throat action mixed in before letting Alec bury his bone from behind. He picks Sadie up and turns around for a reverse cowgirl ride before laying her back to give it to her missionary style. They also get in a cowgirl ride before Alec showers her with his sperm.

This is a pretty darn hot scene. Sadie and Alec have great chemistry and both provide some nice intensity to the scene. I love how much Alec wants to eat her pussy and Sadie's vocals are just as good. Throw in some okay camera work and you have a surprisingly hot scene that's easily the best in the movie.



Scene 5 – Angelina Valentine, Jenny Hendrix, and Cyrus King

Finally, brunette Angelina gets it on with blonde demon Jenny and bald painted up Cyrus. Jenny sucks her tits and eats her pussy as Cyrus kisses her from behind before the girls get down to team up on him orally. Angelina gets in the middle to work on Jenny as Cyrus takes her from behind, and then lets Jenny get up for a reverse cowgirl ride as she plays with Jenny and rides Cyrus' face. Cyrus also spoons Angelina as the girls play with each other a little before fucking Jenny missionary style and spooning her while he also plays with Angelina a bit. Finally the girls get down to share his small pop between their tongues as they both seem like they're expecting more cum.

This is an okay final scene. Angelina puts out some great effort through the scene, and although she starts well with Jenny as the scene goes on the interaction with and especially from Jenny seems to drop off considerably. Although Cyrus did a great job taking on each of the girls, this gave the scene a slightly off feeling as it went along and his weak pop at the end didn't help anything. I wanted to really like this scene, but ended up feeling fairly ambivalent about it.



This Ain't Charmed XXX shows both the potential and downfall of porn parodies. I'll admit that I enjoyed the original show, and really enjoyed some of the thought and care that was put into recreating the feel of the original show. The title sequence was very well done and so were some of the setup sequences, costumes, and casting. At the same time, the sex was an almost continual disappointment and the level of the story seemed just above the level of the porn parodies of the mid-nineties that started to go away a few years before the real Charmed aired. The really sad part about the sex is that it often seemed to have potential, it just couldn't make it past the average level largely due to the extremely uninspired camera work. Axel Braun has shown a good hand and eye behind the camera in the past, and I was really surprised to see him credited for actually being behind the camera for this one due to how lazy it was. The only scene that was really able to get past it was Sadie West's scene with Alec Knight, and even that didn't shine like it seemed like it could have. With the level of care that came out in the opening credits, the story feels shorted in much the same way, and I couldn't help but wonder what Axel Braun could have done with this one with a larger budget and a bit more time. This Ain't Charmed XXX shows a bit of care here and there, but for the most part shows exactly why a lot of people are tired of porn parodies and think that people are just trying to see how fast they can shove them out the door.

The Extra Stuff

Trailers are included for six other Hustler releases. The photo gallery lasts about eight minutes with about five seconds per good looking still and then quickly moves into a secondary four and a half minute gallery. There's also a behind the scenes featurette and, since this is a Hustler release, plenty of commercials.

The behind the scenes featurette lasts a little over twenty minutes. After a few shots around the set Chayse talks about this movie as well as her love of the original. After a quick moment with Cyrus in the makeup chair, Sadie talks about her role and being very serious about partying. Chayse returns to talk about cheeseburgers before Ryder talks about the original and a few other little things. Angelina is next and talks about being the crazy one, her personality, and her sexuality before they shoot some of the movie. This is a pretty good behind the scenes featurette. You get some nice personality from most of the girls as well as a bit of eye candy. Angelina was definitely an interesting persona, and Chayse came off very well also. This is a good addition to the overall DVD.

The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff

Themes: Straight, anal, rimming (male > female), group, and lesbian

Raincoat Factor: Medium

Condom Usage: None

The Bottom Line:

Currently, many of Hustler’s DVDs can be found online for between about $16 and $25 with stores offering it everywhere in between. Rent this one or aim low before you shell out that kind of money. The movie is pretty average, and shows some decent potential while rarely using it. The technical aspects are also pretty average although the extras are nicely done with a good behind the scenes featurette. This is another disappointing Hustler parody.

Note to Hustler: There's some decent ideas behind your parodies (especially when you had Will Ryder directing them), but releases like this seem like you're trying to be more about quantity than quality.
