Running Time: 90 min.
Production Date: 01 / 2000
Director: Nic Cramer
Cast: Sunset Thomas, Tera Patrick, Maren Beautte, Gwen Summers, Bacci, Chris Cannon, Alec Metro, Randy Spears, and Zach Addams in sexual roles and Paige Sinclair and Kyle Stone in non-sex roles
Initial Expectations: The first part of this trilogy didnít do much for me. It shouldnít be too hard to improve on it here.
Initial Reaction: The sex is good, but the plot seems to have been murdered
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who wants some hot sex without worrying about a plot
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants anything close to a plot
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. Thereís a couple flashes of remnants, but thatís about it for unintentional problems. As usual with Nic Cramer, the feature appears to have been shot on film since it has a slightly grainy look to it, but according to the cover Mr. Cramer shot the feature on video. Iím guessing that Mr. Cramer applied filters to the video after shooting it to give the feature a film-like appearance. 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 about thirty seven minutes 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, Allysin Chaynes and Mickey G. are both listed as being in the movie, but are never shown. Maybe I blinked too long, but if they were in and out of there that quickly, I donít think they should have even been listed on the cover. 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: After being found wrapped in a plastic bad on the beach by Randy Spears (who at the end of the first part found Sunset just laying in the surf rather than in the bag), Sunset Thomas is taken to his house to try and recover. Unfortunately it takes over an hour to get through that little plot string since the feature is more about a few people telling each other sex stories.
Sunset Thomas starts things out with a flashback to her getting busy with Zach Addams. He nibbles her nips and tongues her twat before letting her return the favor. Sunset kisses her way down his chest before taking her time to suck his cock. They move on to fuck in a couple of the common positions before Sunset lays back and lets Zach spread her sphincter. Zach and Sunset finish things up with a little doggie action before he gives her a decent facial. Itís a pretty good scene that has some nice energy. Sunset takes it in her backdoor without a problem, and seems to get into it pretty well.
Next up, Tera Patrick decides to boink Bacci after finding him laying on a bed. She lets Bacci admire her amazing body before straddling his face so he can lick her pussy and ass, and then teases him a little before sucking his cock. She also lets him fuck her tits and skull fuck her before she starts riding him reverse cowgirl style. He fucks her doggie style before pulling out, ripping off part of his rubber, and blowing his ball butter wide to the right of Tera, and when she smiles and comments on how she wanted to come first, he sticks it back in without putting on another rubber and starts fucking her roughly. He pops again in the air, with Tera asking for more yet. They move into missionary before Bacci gives Tera one last pop, this time on the face. Itís a very energetic scene with Tera putting on an amazing show. With scenes like this itís no wonder why she quickly gained such a fan base. Bacci, on the other hand, I can easily do without. Iíll admit to not seeing much of Teraís work, but from what I remember I think she was a condom only performer. Bacciís fucking her without much other than the condom donut and his overall attitude seemed a little disrespectful and was full enough of misogyny through the rest of the scene that Iím more than hopeful that this is the last I see of him. Tera, however, rolls with it and turns it into a worthwhile scene thatís both energetic and damn hot.
Next up, Gwen Summers tells a tale about her and Alec Metro, who it appears is replacing Mickey G. from the previous episode. Gwen starts out in some flowery lingerie before dropping to her knees to gobble Alecís knob while he bends over to spank her. She lays back for him to lick her slit, and moves her legs into the air so he can fuck her easier. They continue on through spooning, the cowgirls, and a little doggie before showering her face with his liquid love. Gwen normally doesnít do a lot for me, but here sheís darn enjoyable. She isnít squealing to the point I felt I needed earplugs, and always looks like sheís having a great time. Itís a good scene, and has some nice chemistry and energy.
Maren Beautte zones out while Chris Cannon talks about pork bellies and other investment stuff and imagines him instead telling her to take of her clothes. She fantasizes about giving him a nice show of her bald beaver and very nice ass, and follows his directions to touch herself as her panties magically reappear. She returns from her fantasy a few seconds before Chris realizes that she isnít really listening to him and lets him come over and start working on her with his tongue and fingers. She returns the favor with a good Cramer-vision style blowjob with plenty of looks at the camera, before climbing up to bounce on Chrisí cannon is both cowgirl variations. Chris finishes things up boning Maren from behind, not noticing that ex-girlfriend Gwen Summers has caught them and left, before giving Maren a decent facial. Itís a pretty good scene with nice energy, but Maren played to the camera just a little too much for my tastes.
After finding Sunset Thomas on the beach near death and taking her home, Randy Spears puts the moves on her. I guess nothing says ďI know you canít remember anything but youíre safe here and everythingís going to be okayĒ like a good roll in the hay. He gently kisses her and works his way across her nice nipples before she decides she should really say thanks with a blowjob before they go any further. Once again, Sunset shows a great talent for sucking cock, and devours Randy before letting him lick her slit. They move on to fuck in most of the common positions, with both of them showing some nice energy and great chemistry. Sunset finally finishes Randy off jerking him onto her nicely proportioned chest. Itís a great scene to end the movie with, and right up there with Teraís scene earlier in the movie.
Although itís a little better than its predecessor, Wild Honey 2 is almost as disappointing. Thereís a bit added to the plot, but the entire movie is so convoluted that you can barely follow it. Worse, the overall idea of somebody trying to murder Sunset Thomas and her trying to figure it out as an amnesiac (which the cover tells us about), is all but thrown out to instead have people tell sex stories and to follow a bunch of swingers. Nic Cramer has done some intelligent porn in the past with features such as the original Looker, a feature I still recommend to people, yet here itís as if he wanted to do a trilogy, had no clue how to do it, and instead just stuffed it full of the characters fucking to make up the time. I have nothing against people fucking, itís what makes porn, well, porn, but every now and then itís nice to watch somebody competant take it a little farther. The cover here suggests that Nic Cramer is going to do that, which he has before, and that he has enough story to spread over three movies. After watching two thirds of those movies, Iím not sure why this isnít done in one long movie instead or even more so, why he bothered trying to make this look like a murder movie. Yes, thereís some good sex here, proving this is still a porno, with Tera Patrick and Sunset Thomas both doing an amazing job and Gwen Summers following behind them nicely, but very little of it feels like itís in the right movie. Despite having an anchor of a plot tied around its neck, Wild Honey 2 survives on its sex scenes.
Extras: The photo gallery contains about thirty very nice looking snapshots and full screen photos, but not all of them are from this feature. I recognized at least two of the photos that came from the first Wild Honey. Thereís also internet and phone sex information.
Themes: Straight, anal, rimming (male > female), tit-fucking, spanking, and masturbation
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. If you liked the original, then youíll probably enjoy this one as well. Thereís the same lack of plot, better sex, an okay transfer, and almost nothing 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. Finally, itís great to see you supporting the widescreen format, but in the future, please take your support all the way and give widescreen features the anamorphic transfer they deserve. It is something people pay attention to.
