In “Catfished 3,” viewers follow four
unsuspecting guys as they each try to navigate the choppy waters of
online dating without getting hooked by catfish. Writer/director Jacky
St. James interweaves thematically related tales taking place within the
same universe, in a smooth fashion. And the cast is great, with a nice
blend of industry veterans and newcomers to go along with some of the
best studs in the business.
St. James does a solid job introducing the audience to the film,
with Vanessa Sky and Nathan Bronson helping to hold everything together.
Their easy banter feels natural and settles the audience in for the
ride, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the story even though the sex
comes at us fast. Ryan Mclane was also the perfect choice to end the
movie due to his stellar acting. He delivered just the right amount of
vulnerability to make the story’s climax land and his interaction with
Aila put an excellent bow on the story.
Things start with Codey Steele and Vanessa Sky, whose situation
is certainly catfish-esque, though a bit less traditional than one might
think. She calls Nathan Bronson to compare dating war stories and much
to his chagrin, Bronson is forced to admit his most recent online date
stood him up. Vanessa digs him with a reminder that she warned him his
date’s pictures were fake before recounting her own tale. We get a bit
of massage porn fantasy here but it’s incorporated nicely. Vanessa’s got
a great ass and we get to see plenty of it during cowgirl and doggie,
and St. James wisely incorporates lots of full body shots so the
audience can appreciate the nakedness of the performers. Codey really
pounds himself to a rugged finish as he barely makes it out of Vanessa’s
pussy before he’s spilling his cum all over her ass. Hot. The catfish
reveal is unexpected, but fits the theme perfectly.
Bronson, not to be deterred, gets right back on the horse, but
his next online date is another case of being stood up. The bartender
(Lilly Bell) notices a forlorn Bronson watching his phone and mentions
that the picture of his date is the same girl who stood a guy up in the
bar the previous week. She lays on a bit of ego-boosting flirting to
catch Bronson’s eye and the next thing you know, they’re back at his
place fucking like rabbits. Lilly Bell looks amazing in cowgirl. This
position was full of energy and she shows ab ...continued below
solutely amazing stamina.
This was a great pairing because Bronson always feels like he could slam
forever and Lilly matches him point for point. The narrative twist here
is that having been burned by the catfish, Nathan is suddenly keen to
try it out himself, perpetuating the deceitful cycle.
We then move away from Vanessa and Nathan on to Gianna and Lucas,
two exes who live amicably together. Lucas is talking to the same woman
online that Nathan was talking to, and Gianna offers him the same
warning Vanessa offered to Nathan: the pictures aren’t real and he’s not
talking to who he thinks he is. Eager to prove his know-it-all ex
wrong, Lucas sets up a face-to-face date with his online lover, only to
discover that the person behind the profile is actually a gay guy
looking for a hook up. Naturally, things don’t go the way Lucas
envisioned, and he’s forced to return to the apartment and admit to
Gianna that she was right. Lucas confides to Gianna that dating sucks,
and despite their rocky relationship, having her as a girlfriend was
preferable to this. That’s all Gianna needs to hear to put the seduction
on and within moments, Lucas is balls deep in her. Gianna really does
look great with a dick in her throat and she spends a lot of time
swallowing Lucas here. The choking is pretty awesome and Gianna’s long
legs look great spread wide for Lucas.
Things end with Ryan Mclane involved with an online persona using
the exact same picture as all our other poor victims. His friend (St.
James) issues the thematic warning, and Mclane sets up a meeting at a
hotel just to see his fears confirmed. The surprise twist here is really
nicely done and serves as a great payoff to the film, so I won’t spoil
it. However, the ensuing sex is the perfect reward both narratively and
sexually. Aila is hot, Mclane is horny and he damn near plows her with
blissful abandon. The doggie is the highlight by far, as Aila really
gets into it. The final twist comes out of nowhere but wow what a great
ending! Seriously, make sure you stay past the last cumshot; it is
totally worth it.
This is a really good movie. It’s got a nice blend of humor and
intrigue and the way the characters all connect keeps things
interesting. The sex is all pretty stellar, with Lilly Bell and Aila
Donovan standing out alongside Ryan Mclane. Shawn Alff and Jacky St.
James both deliver top-notch non-sex performances as well.
