Box cover girl Phoenix's stock is very high these days, what with her AVN Award and all, and that should translate into movement.
AVN Female Performer of the Year Lauren Phoenix's all-anal directorial debut ranges from pretty inspired to more routine.
The first two scenes - Phoenix/Mark Wood/Byron Long followed by Melissa Lauren/Alec Knight - radiate some serious heat, while the final three - Phoenix/Destiny/Brooklyn, Aria/Haley Paige/Lee Stone and Phoenix/Nick Manning -are in general more rote.
As a performer, the fetching Phoenix as always works hard for her money, is extremely easy on the eyes and is also pretty funny in spots with some of her ad-libs ("Jiggle that big fat ass on that fucking cock," she tells Wood as he splits her self-styled phat back with his bat.).
As a director, her freshman effort looks like a lot of other hard-edge gonzo, so her next challenge is to find her own style and distinguish herself from the pack.
