Good casting makes this jail-bait saga better than its peers
For obvious commercial reasons there exists more than one porn series with this title, but Sin City's "Just 18" debuts with a better-than- average video. That's because some thought went into the casting, clearly the most important element of this genre.
Yes, jail-bait is an enduring chunk of the Adult Cinema market, never more prevalent than in the present day (17 years after this feature was shot) when the industry's biggest stars all qualify: Riley Reid, Elsa Jean, Piper Perri, etc.
Alex Ladd, whose ongoing career consists mostly of being a cameraman, directs for supervising producer Michael Raven some of the most appealing girls of the day: Mia Smiles, Shay Sweet and Allysin Chaynes. Add to them Dayton Rains (who recently staged a comeback as MILF) and obscure British import Sabrina Johnson (oddly nominated for Performer of the Year (?!) when this video was released and you have a winner.
The vignettes are well set up with some credible story content, a relief from the wall-to-wall boring sex usually delivered in these shows. Shay Sweet is taking a shower to set her short story in motion, while Johnson is sunbathing by a pool, licking a giant lollipop to get the viewer into a Lolita mood. Chaynes is playing tennis when the instructor improving her swing decides to get physical. Mia in knee sox is a very cute school girl, and she is one actress who can always pull off that cliché.
Rains is stuck humping a pug-ugly guy who reminded me of B-movie cult figure Arch Hall Jr. from the '60s, but at least she is pleasing to look at.
