Although this is a sequel to Cherry, there are not as many continuities with the first movie as you might expect. The owner of the club, Cherry (Judy Thompson), is of course still the same. But, with a few exceptions, none of the really central characters from the first movie return.

There is a story here, but it only really emerges at the very end of the movie. Indeed, until very late in the movie, there's never more than a few minutes in a row that are devoted to the story. As far as the story goes, however, there is a mysterious woman (Tuesday Cross) who appears at the club and grabs Cherry's attention, and there's some intrigue about her that is spread through the movie. We eventually learn that she has some kind of history with Cherry. But that storyline is totally disconnected from everything else that happens. Harlow (Riley Steele), Cherry's latest toy, does reappear toward the end, reprising the central drama of the first movie, but she has not been mentioned at all to that point. As far as we knew, she'd been forgotten long ago. And if not, what happened to Winterlynn and Devon? Our general sense is that the storytelling here got lost. There is an idea for a story, but it never gets enough attention to be developed.

And, unfortunately, the sex scenes generally aren't that great, either. The second is not very good at all, and the third just doesn't make a lot of sense, though it goes on for 50 minutes. The first is the only one that really grabbed our attention, and even it is only all right. Some of the acting is pretty bad, too, such as the interaction between Avery and Katherine before Dana and Evelin fuck. And the photography is not nearly as good as in the first film, feeling much more pornish.

There are also several issues with the filmmaking that we would call continuity problems, except they aren't quite that. Dana and Evelin keep talking about all the other people who are around, for example, but there is absolutely no sign of anyone else in the club. Something similar happens when Amanda is talking with Cherry. Couldn't they have had some extras milling about? We know those cost money, but there are extras in other parts of the film.

It's just weird how great the first movie was and how mediocre this one is.

Scene 1: Andy San Dimas and Jiz Lee (♀♀)


Time: 14:00

Features: Multiple Female Orgasms, Rough Sex, Spanking, Strap On

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀

DJ Carson is a DJ at the club, and Andy has been teasing her from the dance floor. She comes over to the booth and teases her a bit more closely, and the two of them retire to a more private locale—though not private enough, as Cherry overhears them.

We learn at the end of the scene that there is some relationship between these two, but it nonetheless has an "anonmyous sex at the club" feel. There isn't much sense of a connection between them. The sex is reasonably hot, and they both seem to have a pretty good time. JL is wonderfully dominant. But it felt to us as if the scene went a whole lot longer than it needed to do given its minimal role in the story.

(FYI: Jiz Lee uses "they" and its cognates as pronouns.)

Scene 2: Dana DeArmond and Evelin Rain (♀♀)


Time: 21:00

Features: Footjob, Tribadism

Pleasure ❌, Passion ❌

Evelin (Evelin Rain) has apparently been teasing Dana (Dana DeAarmond) for some time by text message and the like. Dana dares Evelin to fuck her on top of the bar, so they stand up and Evelin starts really teasing her. Eventually, they do have sex at the bar.

Unfortunately, the sex seems completely unnatural, not at all like the sex they might actually have. Dana almost seems to go out of her way to "perform", and as a result we found ourselves quickly bored. It get a bit better toward the end, but by then it is too late. That's not good for a 21 minute scene.

We also found Evelin's heavily augmented breasts a bit distracting. They do not seem to match her body at all.

Scene 3: Missy Martinez, Zoey Holloway, Brooklyn Lee, and Diamond Foxxx (♀♀)


Time: 50:00

Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Multiple Female Orgasms

Avery (Zoey Holloway) is getting impatient for a "girl", so Cherry hooks her up with a new dancer named Viviana (Missy Martinez). Katherine (Diamond Foxxx) decides she'd like her own, so she hooks up with another new dancer, Carissa (Brooklyn Lee). The four of them have sex, in pairs, in a back room.

As was true of two of the best scenes in the first movie, the sex here evolves slowly, with lots of kissing and foreplay. But it just doesn't feel nearly as passionate this time but rather performed and controlled. It doesn't help either that while Avery and Viviana are getting busy, Dana and Carissa seem to be trying very hard not to do anything. So this really divides into two scenes: one with Zoey Holloway and Missy Martinez, which lasts about 30 minutes, and another with Brooklyn Lee and Diamond Foxxx, which lasts about 17 minutes.

Why they didn't just have them all have sex at once, we have no idea. It makes no sense that they would be doing what they do. Most of it feels very pornish.

There are some reasonable elements to the sex. Viviana eats Avery to two nice orgasms, and Avery then eats and wanks Viviana to an orgasm or two of her own. Carissa later eats Katherine to an orgasm and fingers her to another one. Katherine then returns the favor before Carissa fingers her to another couple orgasms.

In the end, though, a lot of the sex just feels unnatural. And it definitely is neither passionate nor varied enough for such a long scene.

Diamond Foxxx's very altered breasts just scream "porn" as well.

Scene 4: Kimberly Kane and Tuesday Cross (♀♀)


Time: 21:00

Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Orgasm

Amanda (Kimberly Kane) and Talia (Tuesday Cross) have sex on their bed.

The sex is loving, which seems to fit the story, though it's hard to know, since we're not really shown what the relationship between these two is. But they at least seem comfortable with each other, and Kane make some effort to express affection in a way that might add to our sense of their connection. Cross seems to overdo it a bit in places, though, which detracted from any sense of realism for us.

There are some good moments, such as when Talia is riding Amanda's face and leaning back to finger her. But there aren't nearly enough of those. Too much of the rest just feels routine and almost performed.
