MILF

It looks like teen sex comedies are becoming a staple of The Asylum's output, and I guess that's logical. They can't cost much to make, and there's always an audience for naked ladies. Their latest entry in the genre is MILF (2010), a throwback of sorts (although more sleazy) to 80s genre favorites like MY TUTOR (1983), where teenage boys (in this case, college Freshmen) discover the appeal of older women.

As one might expect, there's not much of a plot. Four nerdy college freshmen, frustrated by their inability to score with young women their own age, find sexual acceptance in the arms of attractive older women - even each other's moms! Thus follows a series of comedic episodes as the boys experience a variety of erotic escapades with a number of aggressive cougars.

For what it is, MILF is okay. The women are all quite attractive (although more than a few of the supposedly middle class moms sport stripper-like tats and signs of cosmetic enhancements), the guys are mostly likable, the comedy is amusing, and the flick looks fairly slick. Director Scott Wheeler (TRANSMORPHERS: THE FALL OF MAN, The Asylum's JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH) maintains a steady pace, and  Asylum vet Mark Atkins gives the videography a professional sheen. It's no classic, but as a lowbrow teen sex comedy, it manages to remain mildly entertaining and titillating for its full 90 minutes.

The Asylum DVD sports a perfectly satisfactory 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer and 5.1 Surround Sound. Supplements include a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and trailers for recent and upcoming Asylum releases.

I doubt anyone will find many laughs in MILF, but you might manage a few smirks. It's no classic, but it is loaded with female nudity, and since that's its only reason for existing, it succeeds at its modest goals.
