These are babysitters?

This is a fairly average film, with a poor story and mediocre editing. There are a few good performances, but they're not enough to save the film.

Babysitters was a big hit a few years ago, and I decided to watch it and see what the fuss was about. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to the hype and I'm pretty disappointed. I much preferred some of the other titles in this series.

Sex Scenes:

1. Nautica Thorn and Tony DeSergio: oral and vaginal sex in several positions.

I found this scene a bit boring, due to a lack of chemistry between the two performers and poor pacing in the editing.


2. Sasha Grey, Sascha, Charles Dera, Jay Lassiter, & Jerry: all fellatio, first with one man, then with the other three all at once.

Sasha Grey is a stellar performer, and always seems excited to be having sex. This works well in this scene, as not every woman could pull off this sort of scene. The men are a bit rough with her, forcing their cocks deep into her throat, but Sasha Grey always manages to look like she's having a great time. Anyone who's interested in an oral gangbang will love it. It's not my type of scene, but Sasha Grey really sells this performance, and makes it one of the better scenes in this film. She deftly switches between cocks, sometimes with two in her mouth at once, and her hands are always busy working on whichever cocks aren't in her mouth. I only wish she had appeared in more scenes; that could have saved what turned out to be an otherwise mediocre film. She implies at the end of the scene that she's going to go have sex with her boyfriend, but it happens off camera, as we never see her reappear in any other scenes. In the behind-the-scenes extra we find out that her boyfriend in the film was played by a cameraman, which explains why we never get to see him have sex with Sasha Grey. (I was very disappointed. He was a pretty good looking guy, and I would have enjoyed seeing them fuck.)


3. Alektra Blue, Sammie Rhodes, Sophia Santi, Angie Savage, Lexxi Tyler: all girl orgy, with various toys

Another scene which isn't my type, but unlike the last one there's no standout performance to keep me interested. I'm not a fan of orgy scenes, and it takes exceptional camera work editing to keep me interested. The technical work in this scene was not up to the task. It's impossible to keep track of who's doing what, and whenever you get interested in something, they quickly switch to some random other performer who's in the middle of something else. In addition, the camera tends to be too close to the action, with most shots ending up with random body parts which are impossible to keep track of. The audio is similarly jumbled, with a sea of random fake moaning which is endlessly distracting. You'll quickly reach for the mute button, if you haven't already hit fast-forward.


4. Teagan Presley and Tyler Durden: oral, vaginal, and anal sex

This scene was ok, with some chemistry between the performers, but ended up being a bit repetitive.


5. Shay Jordan and Scott Nails: oral and vaginal sex, with some very mild BDSM

By far the best scene in the movie, in my opinion, with strong performances from both Shay Jordan and Scott Nails. They have some real chemistry together and were fun to watch. I think this was the only scene that my girlfriend liked.


6. Shay Jordan, Gina Lynn, and Ben English: oral and vaginal sex

Scene 5 leads directly into this scene, so I had my hopes up for this one. It's not bad, but it's nothing special. It was a bit of a disappointment after the previous scene. Shay Jordan seems much less interested in this scene, and neither Gina Lynn nor Ben English really deliver either.


7. Nikki Benz, Jesse Jane, and Tommy Gunn: oral and vaginal sex

Another threesome, somewhat better than the last. But I had mostly lost interest in the movie at this point, so I didn't watch this scene all the way through.


Extras:

There's a short blooper real and a ten minute behind-the-scenes featurette, both of which are quite entertaining and are worth watching. The behind-the-scenes segment is particularly good, and is better than most.

The remaining extras consist only of some production stills and a few trailers for other Digital Playground DVDs.


Summary:

The cast definitely has some big stars, some of whom certainly made an effort, but the writing, direction, and editing didn't do anything to back them up. The story is pointless, and not worth your time. And while the video and audio quality is good, I didn't like some of the camera work in some scenes, and the editing was poor throughout.
Experience
My girlfriend and I were very disappointed in this movie after enjoying others in the series. I know a lot of other people enjoy it, but it's just not for us. I can only recommend it for those who are big fans of one or more of the performers.

    Huh. I hadn't heard much about this movie before. Glad to know it's one to skip.
