There was a time when amateur productions were banging at the pornographic gate, demanding recognition and respect. Then pro am came along; the lines began to blur and offerings like Amateur Hardcore 5 straddle the fence, promising a bit more than they can deliver.
Lacking the rawness of authentic amateur productions and the slick nastiness of experienced pros, your viewers are left with a few eager, young faces. They appear either too overwhelmed (Capri) or simply too bored (Mini) to make for memorable viewing. Lexi and Britney, who excel at knob gobbling, prove to be minor distractions. Yet as a banner release from Jim Lane - one of the most outrageous shooters in the business - the material hardly lives up to its notorious reputation.
