Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave.....

Stepmother 4 was not as good as it could have been considering the stars in the movie. It did provide a chance for a few exceptional middle-aged stars to show us that they still have what it takes in more ways than one, which is encouraging for those of us who are middle-aged ourselves. It gives hope that we can learn to perform some of these moves with the same dexterity and enjoyment that they displayed. Even with the technical problems, it was enjoyable, even if predictable and a bit plain.
Known stars, slightly older couples, variety of sexual encounters
Photo issues, audio problems

extremely useful review
The movie "The Stepmother 4 - Her Secret Past" by Sweet Sinner is one of lies and deceit within a family. This movie was written and directed by Nica Noelle and stars Julia Ann (2011 AVN MILF/Cougar Performer of the Year), Gracie Glam (2011 AVN Best New Starlet), Nina Hartley (well established Adult Entertainment star), Christian, Tommy Gunn, and James Deen (most recently seen in Masseuse 3). The movie is based on the workings of a family unit comprised of Father (Tommy Gunn), Stepmother (Julia Ann), Daughter (Gracie Glam), Daughter's boyfriend (James Deen), and Daughter's hidden domination sex partners (Nina Hartley and Christian).

In Scene 1, Gracie and James are discussing Gracie's feelings of mistrust of her Stepmother. James tries to soothe her feelings first through talk, then through sex. This begins with gradual foreplay, which rapidly devolves into much more explicit activities. Between both oral on her, then oral on him (with an amazing deep throat shot), then many various positions; the soothing takes the better part of twenty minutes. At the end of all of the soothing, the decision is made to spend time with Dad and Stepmom.

Scene 2 takes place between Dad and Stepmom. This is done in a rather traditional fashion, which is befitting a married couple. Even with the oral, the sex is rather vanilla and seems to be done with the consent and the control of the wife, over the desires of the husband. It seems to be the object of this scene to show the control of the "Stepmother" over Dad.

The next phase, which encompasses a few scenes, establishes the desire of the Stepmom for the boyfriend. When James can't sleep the first night, and goes for a drink of water, he is followed and confronted by Julia, who "only wants to get to know him better" since he will be joining the family soon. Before anything can progress, Julia is foiled by Gracie, who shows up looking for James.

Next morning Gracie makes a rather lame excuse to Dad so that she can leave on her own. This turns out to be to meet with old domination friends who are unknown to the family. Because Gracie arrives 15 minutes late, she is told she will receive 15 minutes less foreplay, but this is changed to 15 spanks to begin the foreplay. For domination sex, this seems to be very tame to non-existent. For three-way sex, this seems to be fairly uninspired for the most part. It does give Nina and Christian a chance to showcase some of their strengths, but Gracie seems to be more of a bit player than a lead player in this part. The variety of the three-way is pretty standard with the girl on girl, "sit on his face and I'll sit on his rod," "let's switch places," "sit on my face while he does me," "he can do you now and I'll sit on his face." It all seems to lead up to Gracie finding a copy of a picture of Julia on the table next to the bed; it is explained that she was their original dominatrix and got them into domination. They were together for years before she decided to go "straight" and get married. The guy has no idea of her past, but they expect she won't be able to stay away for too long.

The next scene is the confrontation between Gracie and Julia over the photo. Gracie threatens to expose Julia to Dad, and Julia threatens to expose Gracie to both Dad and James, once she realizes where she got the photo and what it means. Now they both have dirty little secrets on each other, but neither can say anything.

We next move to Dad leaving for a business trip. Julia is leaving the bedroom when she sees James again, just leaving the bathroom after a shower. Dad and Gracie are at the front door waiting for Julia. Suddenly, Julia has a stomach problem and can't make the trip to the airport. Dad decides to drive himself, but then Gracie offers to drive him to the airport. James is quickly pounced upon by Julia. Since the feelings are not one-sided, it doesn't take long to get off to a great start on the staircase. This rapidly moves to the master bedroom, where the gymnastics truly begin. While Julia may not be quite as athletic as Gracie, she has experience on her side, and provides a great performance. James has youth and virility going for him, so this is another extended sex scene that runs close to, or slightly over, 20 minutes. This is also the end of the movie, with all of the secrets intact, and secrets yet to be revealed.
While the photography had some interesting scenes, the audio left a bit to be desired. In several places the audio tended to fade requiring an increase in volume that was a problem shortly after when the audio returned. This was, however, an interesting film in that it did display people who are not as young enjoying extended sexual encounters. For those who are no longer in their twenties, it provided something to look forward to, and some encouragement. The interaction of the actors was also an interesting facet of the movie. While Nina and Christian were obviously very comfortable with each other, Gracie seemed to have a bit of a hard time fitting in with them during their scene. James did a good job of working easily with both Gracie and Julia, and made all of those scenes very believable, and easy to follow. Because of the limited scenes between Julia and Tommy, it was difficult to get a good feel for their working relationship. Overall the entire cast seemed to work well together and all of their scenes together---whether sexual or not---worked well.

I watched this movie all the way through the first time to get a good feel for the movie and the production. In my opinion that would be the best way to watch this movie, as chopping it up will only confuse the viewer as to what is going on with the movie. After the first time, the movie could be watched by chapters in order to pick the areas that you prefer.
Follow-up commentary
Great interaction with the cast and nice to see some older actors for a change. Good variety of scenes and great actors (even if the audio is a bit off at times).

    Nice job with this review, oldhippy! I don't think I'll be watching this one, deceit as a theme doesn't usually do much for me.

    Well, I wouldn't have considered it before, but probably worth a view. Thanks for the review.
