Better than you'd think!
19 December 2000 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

Don't let the title fool you. This is not a porn film. In fact the title has little to do with the movie. It's about a small town girl (Michelle Dawn) who comes to New York City, hoping to become a fashion model, like millions of other pretty girls. She goes through the rigors of trying to get a portfolio done and become noticed by producers, some of whom are willing to help,,, for a price. Some of the scenes of girls auditioning for jobs are pretty funny. The producers are portrayed quiet accurately, sometimes a bit too accurately. The film is kind of depressing at times as the main character suffers a lot of pitfalls. Still, it's an interesting look at the modelling industry and fairly well done considering the amateur cast. Michelle Dawn is pretty good in the lead but oddly, never made another movie which is sad when you think of how many untalented actresses there are out there in TV and film,
