Shauna (Gracie Glam) has a wicked crush on her old friend Brandon (Small Hands), though she has been biding her time with her fuck-buddy Will (Ryan Driller)---though he may not see it that way. When she gets an invitation to a cousin's wedding back in her home town, that gives her the opportunity to 'wow' Brandon. She enlists her friend Carrie (Brooke Banner) to help her, which of course means shopping and nails and the like, and in the end she invites Carrie to come with her to the wedding. We won't tell how it all works out. But there's something very, very sad that happens, as well as something very happy.

It's a pretty good story, and as usual with these movies a fair bit of time is devoted to it: almost half an hour, so about a third of the movie. There were a few things about it, though, that were a bit implausible, such as how the family of the bride could fail to know Shauna would be at the wedding. But the acting is generally very good. Steven St Croix is great in a small role as Shauna's crazy uncle—though we have grown tired of watching him have sex, the very same way, almost every single time.

And it is the sex scenes that bring the movie down. The first scene, with Gracie Glam and Ryan Driller, starts off great but fades toward the end. The second, in which Carrie has sex with her boss (Eric Masterson), feels gratuitous and too much like 'couples porn'. The third scene, with Yhivi and Michael Vegas, is at least amusing—the bride and groom fuck in the bathroom right before the wedding—but it isn't nearly as passionate, or hurried, as you'd expect given the story, and he tries too hard to stay out of the way of the camera. We won't even talk about the fourth scene.

The saving grace is the last scene, with Brooke Banner and Small Hands. It's as if all the passion that was missing from the earlier scenes somehow found its way into this one. It really is terrific.

The photography is a mixed bag. We loved how the first scene was shot, very simple and quiet. There are some really nice shots, too, for example, of their hands, tightly clasped, while he is eating her pussy. But there is also a long sequence where the camera is too tight on her and we hardly see him at all. And that's pretty typical for the whole movie. There are plenty of wider shots, but there are also more 'medical' shots, and more shots tight on the women, than we are used to seeing from Wicked Passions.

Scene 1: Gracie Glam and Ryan Driller (♀♂)


Time: 14:30

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Ass

Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

Shauna (Gracie Glam) has morning sex with her friend Will (Ryan Driller), who has been staying with her for a while.

The sex is reasonably natural, and they seem very comfortable with each other. There is some great eye contact and smiling at the beginning, and he seems quite enthusiastic about eating her pussy, which genuinely seems to get her off. But the rest isn't as passionate, and some of the positions seem artificial, if not pre-planned. So, though it starts really well, it fades a bit at the end.

Scene 2: Brooke Banner and Eric Masterson (♀♂)


Time: 10:30

Cumshot: Leg

Features: Analingus

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

Shauna's friend Carrie (Brooke Banner) has been fucking her boss for a while now, which she does again.

The sex is all right, but it starts without our having even met him, so it's hard to have much of a sense for their relationship. We did appreciate the kissing and caressing at the beginning, but overall the positions and changes are pretty predictable, and there just isn't much of a connection between them. As a result, the scene ends up feeling too much like a performance.

Scene 3: Yhivi and Michael Vegas (♀♂)


Time: 12:00

Cumshot: Ass

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

The bride and groom have sex in a bathroom minutes before the wedding. Apparently, he was feeling nervous.

It's an amusing and arousing fantasy. But the sex is merely all right. It has its moments, but sex in the bathroom is pretty confining, and they aren't nearly as passionate, or hurried, as you'd expect given the story. It doesn't help that he is clearly trying to keep out of the camera's way when he is eating her, which amounts to bad acting. Again, this is not something we ordinarily see in these movies. But the real problem is that neither of them really seems to be feeling all that much pleasure. She never even seems terribly aroused.

Scene 4: Olivia Austin and Steven St Croix (♀♂)


Time: 10:30

Cumshot: Stomach

Features: Analingus

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

The father of the bride, Shauna's crazy uncle, has sex in his game room with one of the guests: the 'girlfriend' of Shauna's best friend from high school.

The sex is pretty pornish, basically. It's predictable and mostly pleasureless, though it is something of a saving grace that is cartoonishly so. Maybe that's how it was meant to be, but it really didn't work for us.

Scene 5: Brooke Banner and Small Hands (♀♂)


Time: 11:00

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Ass

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

Carrie falls hard for Shauna's old flame Brandon, so she goes up to his room and has sex with him.

Finally! Some passion! She throws him on the bed, kissing him hard, and clothes go flying. And finally, also, a bit of variation from the predictable eat-suck-fuck sequence we've been offered in all the other scenes. But most importantly, there are some symptoms of genuine pleasure from both of them. She masturbates quite a bit while they're fucking and has at least one orgasm.

It's by far the best scene in the movie, and the best shot, as well.
