At thirty-five years old, 1990s porn superstar Janine is launching a comeback at an age when most pornstars have moved on, and are relegating the adult industry to their (unspoken) past.
The hype about Maneater and Janine finally fucking guys is so strong in the industry and on the Internet that this video would be a bestseller even if it were terrible. Which it is not!
The two main questions that Maneater must answer are "Can Janine bring the same heat to b/g porn as she brought to g/g porn?" and "At 35, how good does she look?"
In my opinion the answer to both questions is: "Great Start".
Performance wise, Janine seems to be trying to find her b/g "fuck style." She's in three scenes (a b/g, a g/g/b, and a g/g)and each one has a different "feel" to it.
The first scene with Nick Manning tries to hit the viewer like a Nicole Sheridan scene. Hot, nasty (though no anal), lots of talking and groaning. Nick pushes his dick down Janine's throat saying: "You're sucking a real cock, now!" The scene has a rough edge to it, and Janine is more passive than in her g/g classics, and seems to be trying to figure out how to be (Nicole Sheridan or Monica Sweetheart) "wild." Janine also seems very uncomfortable with Nick, who is a "newbie" to the porn scene since Janine's glory days. This scene's not a great beginning, and locating part of it in a bathroom (before it unexplainably is moved to a bedroom) adds to the sense of discomfort and gives it a "closed in" feeling, but Nick knows how to fuck, and Janine keeps bouncing her ass on his dick.
The g/g/b scene that follows teams Janine with Angelica Sin and Dale DaBone, and works much better than the Nick Manning scene. Janine seems to be at ease having a pussy in the scene to lick while Dale fucks her from behind or on top. Or, maybe having another woman present just relieves the "pressure" from Janine to be the sole object of the man-meat. Indeed, Angelica takes DaBone up the ass! A good scene, but not an award winner.
The final, more traditional Janine scene, is the g/g with Sunrise Adams which begins as a photo shoot and ends in the shower. This is Janine at her best, working another (younger) woman, sexually. Janine uses a strap-on during the photo shoot sequence and seems right at home. Many viewers will consider this scene as the "Best of Show"...although my favorite is in the "extras" as mentioned below.
As for Janine's looks, she's in terrific condition for her age...but, a let-down if you remember her classic beauty from "Hidden Obsessions" "Internal Affairs" or her dozens of other Vivid videos. In "Maneater" she's thick around the middle, her butt's not as tight as it use to be (she mentions that herself!), but mostly her boobs have a lot more sag in them. Her titties are more like Christy Canyon's than Silvia Saint's.
Finally, and one of the main reasons I strongly recommend this DVD (besides it being the first Janine b/g) is the Janine/Julian scene in the Extras section, which is a video of their hardcore "Club Magazine" photo shoot. It rocks! The camera angles are excellent, Julian knows how to turn up the heat with Janine, and there's a real seen of chemistry between the them. Which translates to good sex!
Hopefully, in future Janine b/g videos, Vivid will design scenes that allow her to work in g/g/b scenes, and with Julian. In the meantime, go out and buy Maneater. Any and every person who likes porn should see this, as we have all been waiting for Janine to start fucking nice hard cocks. It's a great start for Janine's comeback.

Found this great review of the latest porn vid put out by one of my favorite actresses, Janine. She's even one of our friends on MySpace; she even dropped in a comment for us. Danni loves the Blondage series; can't wait to get this new one. Wow, and with our new 73" HDTV in the Sex Palace South soon to be debuted on the swingers party circuit (yes, size matters!)...woo hoo!
