The main characters here are Emily (Julia Ann), who runs a small bakery and cafe, Sweet Dixie, and a variety of people who work for her: Randy (Tyler Nixon), Jessica (Jade Nile), and Shannon (Britney Amber). Also around are Link (Ryan McLane), the local police chief, who is more importantly an old flame of Emily's, and Doug (Van Wylde), a delivery boy who turns out also to be an amazing photographer. Just as important to the story, however, though we do not see as much of them, are Emily's younger sister (Charlotte Stokely) and her lover (Bianca Breeze), neither of whom seems to be named in the movie.
The movie is a comedy of errors. The story revolves around a love poem that Emily finds in an art book she is intending to return to her sister, and which she thinks was intended for her. Barious other people keep finding it, too, and think it was intended for them. If it sounds corny, it is a bit, but it's actually a really great story, and it is very well told. A good deal of time is spent developing it, too: about 40 minutes. There are all kinds of subplots, and there are several moments when one is forced to remember (along with the characters) that one shouldn't make assumptions about people. The acting, too, is really terrific, on all sides. We were especially impressed by the climactic scene in which all is revealed. It could easily have been over-acted, but it is not, and as a result it is wonderfully touching.
Unfortunately, though, the sex scenes are generally mediocre. There is one exception: the fourth scene, in which Charlotte Stokely and Bianca Breeze celebrate Charlotte's return from Europe by having passionate sex on the couch. It's one of the best "lesbian" scenes in an otherwise "straight" movie that we have ever had the privilege of watching.
There's nothing really bad about any of the sex scenes, and the camera work is pretty good, too. There are no particularly striking shots, though, and there are times the male performers are out of frame. But, generally speaking, the scenes are shot from wider angles that allow us to see the performers as people and not just as parts. The real problem is that almost all the sex scenes seemed to be too long. There just isn't enough variation in the sex to justify the time. In a way, the scenes are even longer than they seem, since much of the undressing, etc, is edited out, and there is less kissing, etc, than we'd prefer.
So it would have been a better movie, we think, had the sex scenes been edited down a bit so that more time was spent, proportionally, on the story. As we said, it's a pretty good story, and the sex scenes end up feeling like they interrupt it too much.
Nonetheless, we are giving this movie four and half stars, because the story and acting are so good.
Scene 1: Jade Nile and Tyler Nixon (♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Maybe, Cumshot: Pussy
Features: Tit Fuck
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ✓
Randy (Tyler Nixon) and Jessica (Jade Nile) have sex in the bakery just before it opens. Apparently, they have not seen each other for a while, though we are not told why.
There is a nice sense of genuine passion between them, and they do a good job carrying the story into the sex. We liked how much they talked to each other, and smiled at each other, at the beginning. But much of the talking once they started fucking felt gratuitous. And the sex itself did not feel entirely natural. She gets much too aroused much too fast, and while there clearly is some genuine pleasure, and she may well cum, they both try too hard to seem like they are enjoying themselves.
The camera work is generally pretty good, and there are plenty of wider shots where we see both of them. But the camera is too focused on her when she is sucking him. It would have been easy to back the camera up a bit so we could see him, but instead much of the scene is shot from under a table, so his entire upper body is obscured. There are some similar problems elsewhere, e.g., when she is on her back.
Scene 2: Julia Ann and Tyler Nixon (♀♂)
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ✓
Emily (Julia Ann), the boss, has sex with Randy (Tyler Nixon), her employee, on a couch at her sister's home after she has found a love poem she thinks he wrote her.
There is again a sense of genuine passion between them, but not as much as one might expect, given the story. She's actually a bit dominant, too—without seeming silly, which it is nice to see. But in the end it all feels a bit predictable, and even a bit restrained. And she never really seems that aroused.
The camera work is again pretty good, but with shortcomings similar to those in the first scene. It is too focused on her when she is sucking him, and there are a few too many medical shots for our taste, though they do not last very long.
Scene 3: Britney Amber and Van Wylde (♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Pussy
Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ✓
Shannon (Britney Amber) and Doug (Van Wylde) have sex on his couch—but in part under false pretenses, since she thinks he wrote her a love poem.
The sex is natural and fairly passionate, but we found her vocalizations very distracting. How many times does anyone need to say "Oh my God"? It's possible that's just how she is, but it doesn't feel at all natural. To the contrary, it feels like typical porn over-acting.
The camera work is in some ways a bit better than in the previous scenes. When she is sucking him, the view alternates between a closeup and a much wider shot that shows both of them, for example. But, on the other hand, there are more medical shots in this scene than in the first two, though again they do not tend to linger.
Scene 4: Bianca Breeze and Charlotte Stokely (♀♀)
Female Orgasm: Multiple
Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀
This is one of the best "lesbian" scenes we can recall seeing in an otherwise "straight" movie.
This entire scene has a much more relaxed and realistic feel than any of the first three. There's a quiet, slow passion to it that is very sexy, and they seem very into fucking each other. Both of them have what look to be very satisfying orgasms, and Bianca has more than one.
The camera work is really good, too. It's amazing what happens when there aren't gender expectations to shape everything.
Scene 5: Julia Ann and Ryan McLane (♀♂)
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ✓
Emily (Julia Ann) and Link (Ryan McLane) finally have sex. And the sex is very natural and convincing, with plenty of smiling, some very sweet talking, and a real sense of passion that is appropriate to the story. But we really would have liked more kissing and 'foreplay' than we get in this scene. He is going down on her within about a minute, and that did not feel appropriate to what was happening between them.
In the end, though, the main problem is just that the scene is too long.
The camera work is comparable to that in the first two scenes: Pretty good but not great. We lose him when she is sucking him, and also when she is on her back.
