The only thing Cindy really wants is to get in on the action that her masters are getting. Instead she has to obey them and clean, do the dishes, and occasionally get used in their perverted games as a place for the men to "empty themselves". She just wants to have sex on her own free will. There's a big sex party being planned, and she dreams of getting the chance of attending...

Our thoughts:
If you ever wanted to watch a retelling of the classic "Cinderella" where there was a bunch of fucking and the ending is resolved in a second, then look no further than "Serena"!

This porno tells the story of Cindy... Wait, who is Serena, then? Oooh, it's the actress. That's... odd. Oh well, it doesn't matter. Except that it would totally make sense to name the movie after the character instead of the actress. Okay, so Cindy (Cinderella, get it?) has been sold to prostitution and is now being pushed around as a slave by a couple of ladies, her masters. She has to do the house chores, but also at times help out in their sex acts. Mostly she is used as a cum bucket/place for the men to cum. Sometimes she gets in on the sex, but only enough to please the man - never enough to please Cindy. Cindy gets hornier and hornier, and finally gets her luck when a perverted fairy visits her in her dream for a little lesbian lovemaking. But this isn't enough. Cindy wants what her masters are getting! She wants to find her prince! The fairy allows her for one night of fun at an orgy, but she has to leave by midnight...

Which side of the movie do you want me to comment first? The story/way of using "Cinderella" or the porn? You filthy creep, I knew it! Okay, so this movie goes all the way. It's porn, no doubt. It's your typical 70's/80's porn, so if that's what you enjoy then it might work for you. If you're okay with it being silly, of course. It's nothing new and nothing too different, so I can't say much more. It does what it should as pornography, but there's a little more to it with the story that might please fans of cheesy fun more.

It tries its hardest to bring in the "Cinderella" story, and it's not too bad at it. We get the references, but it never goes far enough to become a spoof/parody. It's simply a porno with a "Cinderella"-ish story. Towards the end Cindy finally gets laid with her "Prince", but she has to leave by midnight. So of course she accidently leaves her shoe. While I think it's fine for a porno to half-ass it, I think it would've been more enjoyable if there was some more to it after this. Instead, a minute after she has left the shoe, she returns and gets her man. That's all there is to it. I suppose they didn't care, they knew people wouldn't watch it for being based on "Cinderella". And people probably haven't... until now!

"Serena: An Adult Fairytale" is not too bad. It gave me a few laughs here and there. Very small laughs, but laughs still! It's just a really innocent porno that you could find entertainment in. Had it been made now I think it would've been awful and boring, but there's a charm to these light-hearted porno's from 70's and 80's. When you're bored, you could pop this in and count how many times you see the crew in the background, in shadows or sometimes even right before the camera. It's all part of the charm, isn't it?

Positive things:
- It's silly, so it works.
- The sex is as you'd expect from 70's/80's porn.
- Serena? Cindy? Who cares!

Negative things:
- They should've given it 5 more minutes for a better ending! Or is that too much to ask in an intentionally stupid porno?
