Critical Rating: AAA 1/2
A sharply designed box cover (showing insets of TV screens) is sure to stand out among the usual fare.
Devinn Lane's directorial debut is a self-proclaimed "adult variety show," but in truth this vid plays more along the lines of a three-ring circus - with Lane assuming triple duty as ringmaster, clown and high wire performer. To a lesser talent, the results might resemble a flea circus. Acting as host, street beat reporter and infomercial pitchwoman (for adult toys), Lane reveals both fine comedic timing and all-natural sex appeal.
She juggles our attention back and forth from a few hot threeways in the center ring to sideshows featuring intimate solos, girl-on-girl action and b/g gropes. Best of the bunch is the sizzling St. Croix/Berrymore/Mayhem matchup which, unlike your typical gynecological spelunking expedition, concentrates more on performer interaction. Refreshing!
However, if screen-filling gash and buttholes are the singular interest of your clientele, TDLS could never be accused of skimping on close-ups, especially when Hatcher and Daniels slip the doubled-pronged monkey to the quivering loins of Nikita Denise.
The vid occasionally lapses into the mechanical mode, perhaps under the mistaken notion that consumers will be happier with more overall skin rather than fewer but hotter scenes. If not "The Greatest Show on Earth," The Devinn Lane Show provides a solid evening's entertainment and bodes even better offerings from Lane's future directorial endeavors.
