Running Time: 95 min.
Production Date: 10 / 1999
Director: Nic Cramer
Cast: Sunset Thomas, Allysin Chaynes, Paige Sinclair, Shawna Sexton, Dillion Day, Kyle Stone, Mickey G., Michael J. Cox, Zach Thomas, and Randy Spears in a non-sex cameo role
Initial Expectations: Nic Cramer can be kind of hit or miss with me. Iím hoping with this cast itís going to be a hit.
Initial Reaction: Itís okay, but nothing like the box cover suggests.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting slightly artistic sex with a slow plot
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting straight ahead sex
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is pretty clear and decently balanced, but often a little on the low side. Thereís also a couple background noises that are readily noticeable. The video is presented in the widescreen format, but unfortunately itís non-anamorphic. As usual with Nic Cramer, the feature appears to have been shot on film, as it has a slightly grainy look to it. The lighting is also a bit inconsistent, which stems from Mr. Cramer using a lot of natural lighting in his features. Although I prefer very clear features, it does give the feature a bit of an artistic feel, and doesnít hold the feature back much.
Music: The music varies a little throughout the feature, but often has a feel about halfway between porn music and music from a mainstream movie. It rests very nicely in the background throughout the movie, and almost always enhances the scene rather than interfering with it.
Disc Problems / Complaints: The feature is split over two titles on the DVD, with the break occurring a little after an hour into the feature. Once you start the second title, you canít go back to check out anything in the first title. This was a common problem in earlier DVDs, but by now Pleasure should have moved past it.
False Advertising: The cover states there are star bios, but I couldnít find them on the DVD. The movie description is also for the Wild Honey trilogy as a whole rather than this movie. Finally, Kiki Díaire is listed as being in the movie, and is even listed in the credits, but I never saw her in the movie. Maybe I blinked too long, but if she was in and out of there that quickly, I donít think she should have even been listed on the cover. The same could be said for Randy Spearsí listing, as he gets third billing out of the guys and has maybe ten seconds of screen time. Due to these advertising claims and the juvenile DVD authoring, Iím penalizing the overall DVD a half point.
Menus: The main menu is fairly simple, but has some nice animation that gives the DVD a very good first impression. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a scene number and a small clip of the scene.
The Feature: Sunset Thomas hates her life. Sheís the daughter of the richest widow in town, and doesnít want to just fuck, get high, and party, like everybody else around. Thatís right, true believers. It looks like Nic Cramer and Sunset Thomas are taking on Cindi Lauper. In this world, not all girls just wanna have fun.
Sunset Thomas starts things out with Dillion Day in the porn star dream location of a bedroom. She lays back and enjoys him licking her bald beaver before proclaiming with a smile that itís her turn. She slowly works Dillionís cock over with her mouth and hands before laying back down on the bed for him to stab her snatch. She rides him reverse cowgirl before turning around for Dillion to plow his way into her ass. Sunset and Dillion finish things up with a little vaginal spooning before they team up to jerk him off onto her pussy. Itís a very good opening scene, with nice chemistry and Sunset doing a great job.
Sunset watches with disgust as Shawna Sexton and Zach Adams get their groove thing going in front of her. They take their time exchanging oral favors before working through the cowgirls, doggie, and missionary. Shawna taking plenty of time to look at the camera as they fuck, which is pretty standard for Nic Cramerís movies, and finishes things up with Zach spraying in and around Shawnaís mouth. Itís a pretty average scene, and has some good energy and decent chemistry.
Paige Sinclair, a nice looking short haired brunette, gets busy with boyfriend Kyle Stone after chasing off Sunset in the next scene. After they take off their shirts, Kyle gives Paige a spanking, which she appears to really enjoy. Paige moves on to give Kyle some very good oral attention, which as usual is captured in Cramer-vision with long unbroken shots and Paige looking at the camera most of the time. Kyle takes his time to return the favor on Paigeís bald beaver before moving on to fuck it. Paige continues to show a slightly darker side, as she encourages Kyle to keep fucking her harder and choke her. She takes a bit more control by switching into reverse cowgirl for a short time before taking Kyleís cock creme in her mouth. Itís a hot scene with Paige Sinclair once again showing that sheís really worth paying attention to. She puts great energy into the scene, and controls the pace of the entire scene. My only complaint is the shortness of the reverse cowgirl made it seem like it was only there so nobody could complain about the scene only having one position. Iím not sure if the reverse cowgirl even lasted ten seconds, so for all intents and purposes, the scene still seemed to be only one position. Despite this, I still think this is the hottest scene in the movie.
Allysin Chaynes stops by the house pretending to be looking for her boyfriend Randy Spears, when sheís instead looking for Mickey G., her boyfriendís father. They give each other the standard oral warmup on an outdoor swing before moving through the cowgirls and doggie before Allysin jerks Mickey on to her nicely natural chest. Itís a pretty standard scene that really didnít do anything for me one way or the other.
Finally, Sunset Thomas hooks up with Michael J. Cox. She lets Michael kiss his way up and between her legs before he climbs above her to fuck her face. She continues to lay back in the chair as Michael starts fucking her before moving on to ride him reverse cowgirl and let him fuck her from behind. She finally plays with herself while Michael sprays himself on her neck and tits before sucking out the last few drops. Itís a pretty good final scene, and has some decent chemistry and good energy.
Wild Honey 1 disappointed me, mostly because of its cover. I was looking for a nice start to a mystery with a decent plot, but instead got a feature that was almost all sex and with a thin plot that let you know that most everybody in the movie doesnít get along too well. I have no problems with all sex features, and even a paper this plot can be okay if done right. Here the cover builds it up to be something it just isnít, since the movie ends with Sunset on the beach and absolutely no mention of murder. Looking beyond the movie not coming close to fulfilling what the cover advertises it to be and taking it as it is, the plot still seems loose and all over the place, even by porn standards. The sex is pretty good, with Sunset Thomas doing a good job and Paige Sinclair dang near stealing the show. Unless youíre planning on picking up the entire Wild Honey trilogy, strongly consider renting Wild Honey 1 before you buy it.
Extras: The photo gallery contains about three dozen very nice looking snapshots and full screen photos. Thereís also internet and phone sex information.
Themes: Straight, anal, and spanking
Raincoat Factor: High
Overall: Currently, the Wild Honey series can be found online for between about $13 and $22, with most stores offering them for around $18. Rent this one first. It might be a good start to the series, but as it, the plot is almost non-existent and the sex doesnít make it much past average overall. The transfer isnít too bad for a shot on film feature, but there isnít really anything for extras.
Note to Pleasure: Please pay a little more attention to your covers. You appear to have a nice description of the entire trilogy here, but those who pick up just this part might be a little ticked off since itís virtually nothing like the cover suggests. Also, having the feature split between two titles on the DVD is more than a little annoying.
