Laura (Kaylani Lei) is stood up by her friend (Presley Hart), so heads to a nightclub by herself. Josh (Ryan Driller), who is there with his agent (Steven St Croix), sees her from across the way and is completely taken with her and so goes over to talk to her. He's stunned that she doesn't know who he is: He's a famous actor. They end up going to a diner together and hanging out on the roof of her apartment, where they make out a bit. It turns out there is a woman, Celeste (Allison Moore), that he is supposed to marry. The rest of the story concerns how that complication is resolved.
This is a fairly story-driven porno, with about a third of it being devoted to the story. And the story, though hardly deep, is reasonably engaging, with some striking differences from what one might expect. Broadly speaking, the story is obviously in the vein of Pretty Woman. This time, though, the main female character is a waitress, and the fate of the male character is a bit more tragic: Josh's following his heart threatens, as his agent repeatedly reminds him, his own social status. What makes the story for me, though, is the unexpectedly heroic, and loving, contribution to his future made by his finace.
So, there is a lot here that might have made an excellent porno. Unfortunately, however, the acting is very inconsistent. The interactions between Lei and Diller are very convincing and well done, and Steven St Croix is great, as usual. But there are other parts that border on bad, such as the interaction between Hart and Corvus before the first sex scene. And the sex itself is not that great. The final scene, with Lei and Diller, is pretty good, but for the most part the sex feels, if not exactly performed, then at least pre-planned, lacking in spontaneity and any real sense of passion.
The camera work in the sex scenes, though, is excellent, with terrific gender balance and plenty shown of the male performer's face. This is especially true in the last scene. But we could have done without the standard-issue porn sex music.
We'll add, somewhat selflishly, that this was the first movie we'd seen with Xander Corvus since he got some sort of piercing below his lip. We wish he hadn't. He has a beautiful face.
Scene 1: Presley Hart and Xander Corvus
She (Hart) is upset because he (Corvus) forgot their anniversary. He shows up to apologize, with roses. So they have sex on the couch.
She seems to get way too aroused way too fast, which makes the scene seem faked or, at least, performed. It could be a matter of edits, though, as the action heats up very quickly. That means, as well, that there is very little foreplay. Oddly, though, it ends up getting a bit monotonous. So there could have been more editing later, and less earlier.
There's a way in which the sex feels fairly passionate, but there isn't much of a connection between them, and it ends up feeling a bit rote.
The camera work is pretty well balanced, though it is not very creative. We do see a fair bit of his face when she is sucking him, though, which is good.
They make out on the couch, and he pulls down her dress and sucks her tits. She takes her dress off, and he kisses his way to her pussy and goes down on her, pulling her panties aside. They switch positions, and she pulls down his pants and sucks his cock. She then climbs atop him on her knees, leaning over to kiss him as she bounces on his cock. They switch to spooning, and he reaches around to rub her clit. He gets up and pulls her onto her back, then kneels in front of her, and he leans over to kiss her as they continue. He squeezes her tits fairly hard, then cums on her stomach.
Scene 2: Sarah Shevon and Steven St Croix
Married couple have sex in their hotel room.
There's some sense of genuine attraction between them, but her vocalizations ("oh yeah", "mmm") are not very convincing, especially at the beginning. We had the sense that maybe she was trying too hard or something. It gets better as it goes, but then drags a bit toward the end again, as the fucking just goes on too long without any variation.
The camera work is again very good, and we see plenty of both of them, though the focus is a bit more on her when they are doggy style, and there are some more pornish shots.
She sits on his lap, just wearing a towel, with him in pajamas, and they kiss. He drops the towel and sucks her tits, and they move to the bed. She lies on her back, and he pulls her panties aside and rubs her clit as he kisses her. Her panties vanish, and he goes down on her. Suddenly naked, he then kneels up behind her as she rubs her pussy, leaned over on her side. He fingers her a bit, then lies behind her, and they spoon. He then kneels over her as she pulls her legs way back, and then he leans over to kiss her. They switch to doggy style, and he asks if he can pull her hair, which she says he can, but that is only brief. He pulls out and cums on her ass, for which she thanks him.
Scene 3: Allison Moore and Ryan Driller
Josh and his fiance Celeste have sex in their apartment after going to a fancy party.
There's more of a sense of connection between these two than there was in the previous two scenes. But the sex still feels pre-planned, and there is little sense of passion in it. So, once again, it seems to drag toward the end, as well. And she never seems very aroused, though she does seem to have a reasonably good time.
The camera work is again excellent.
We know it's a constant refrain: But what's with the shoes?
They kiss on the couch, and she takes off his jacket, then his tie, then unbuttons and removes his shirt. She turns around, and he unzips her dress and kisses her back, then squeezes her tits from behind as he kisses her. She stands up, and they remove her dress. She turns around and kind of sits on his lap, and he sucks her tits as he rubs her ass. She lies back on the couch, and he kisses his way down her body, then takes off her panties and goes down on her. He then lies back on the couch, and she undoes his pants and sucks his cock. She then gets astride him on her knees and rocks back and forth, leaning over to kiss him. They switch to spooning, then to missionary. He pulls out and cums on her stomach.
Scene 4: Kaylani Lei and Ryan Driller
Josh and Laura finally get together and have sex in her bedroom.
There is a slow, sexy, but passionate sense to the beginning of this scene, and the sex feels more natural than in the previous scenes. She has an orgasm as he eats her pussy, and they both seem to enjoy themselves. He cums on her stomach.
Somehow, though, the scene never really lets loose, and the passion fades. Some bits seem to go on a bit longer than they really needed to, as well, as in earlier scenes.
The camera work is really, really good, with a great mix of shots. We even get a closeup of his face as she is riding him.
She lies back on her bed, and he lies over her and kisses her, and they slowly undress each other as they kiss, leaving her in her undies and him in just his pants. He removes her bra and sucks her tits, then pulls off her panties, leaving her naked, and he goes down on her, adding a finger after a bit. She cums, apparently, at about 1:18:15. They turn over, and she kisses him, then makes her way down his body. She takes off his pants, so he too is naked, and sucks his cock. She then gets astride him on her knees, then reaches down to rub her clit as she rides him. She may have another orgasm at about 1:28:00, and then they switch to spooning (and actually have a bit of trouble getting him inside her). She rolls onto her back, and he kneels up in front of her, and she reaches down to rub her clit again. He cums on her stomach.
