Trivia

The real "Pauline" (a.k.a. Shauna Grant) was born Colleen Marie Applegate on May 20, 1963. She was born in California but moved with her family to Minnesota in 1973. She moved back to California in 1982 and fell into the adult movie industry. She retired from adult films in 1983. Her parents offered to pay her tuition to college if she moved back home to Minnesota but she declined thinking she would no longer feel comfortable there. Sadly, she took her life on March 23, 1984. She was 20-years old. See more »

Quotes

Patricia: I saw your pictures.
Pauleen Anderson: What pictures?
Patricia: In a magazine. They were circulating all over school. I handled it okay, I guess, but Lisa and Ann had a rough time. They got mad and Pat made it worse.
Pauleen Anderson: But you didn't get mad?
Patricia: I didn't show it.
Pauleen Anderson: But you were?
Patricia: [furiously] Of course I was! Wouldn't you be mad if a bunch of guys were doing obscene things to pictures of me?

Surprisingly good
15 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that could have been tawdry and exploitative, and indeed, I recall reading that the parents of Colleen Applegate (whose life this is loosely based on) were displeased with it, saying it made the pornographers look like they were just running a business and Colleen got into trouble on her own. It's not quite that simple in the movie.

The acting is good all around. Jonna Lee is convincing in all three wildly different stages of the Colleen character's (here she's called Pauleen) story: naive virgin, confident nude model, and decimated, has-been, weary porn star. Her hysterical, desperate tirade at the end is particularly noteworthy; despite the many stupid decisions she's made, in the end, you feel for her. She was really just a kid, after all.
