This title can be pressed into the hands of several different types of customers: those who are unimpressed with "rock 'n'roll" style porn; couples who are unimpressed with "feminist" porn; and those who dig Mike South's work.
As a product of the Mike South Charm School, Matt Marin succeeds admirably. He casts himself as a self-deprecating dolt, but is, in fact, a very solid director. Nothing flashy or pretentious. If he wins any awards it will be due to his fresh personal style. His jokes are corny, but they come naturally from his character and the situations. His cast gives an understated, well-rehearsed performance. They never fall over themselves trying to be funny.
As for the sex, this is great amateur filmmaking like it used to be. It's nice and quiet, slow and sometimes awkward, but always real. Marin gets in a lot of hot, wet pussy-licking. For viewers who usually fast-forward through this type of act because all it shows is the back of a man's head, they can be reassured that here the camera lens remains trained on the inside action. Ashley and Julianna even offer actual human sexual response for his trouble. All of the cumshots are facial. No flinching. No gagging.
