The director Anthony Kramreither uses much stock footage from the Mondo trilogy documentary which he also produced. The stripper footage is from Mondo Strip (1980), the nudist footage is from Mondo Nude (1979) (in the movie a Mondo Nude poster can be seen behind the producer's desk), and the male stripper footage is from _Mondo Macho (1983)_.

My parents went to blockbuster, then they spotted a "3 for £10" deal, so they bought this movie ONLY because it said Jim Carrey at the top. Were they surprised when it turned out he didn't even speak in the film, they did get to see his body, though.
Also, they told me the movie was terrible. I'm glad I didn't watch it. I wonder how many people have been fooled into buying this movie only because it says "Jim Carrey" at the top. Even though you might be thinking, "Why is he reviewing this movie when he hasn't even seen it", I believe my parents are generally good movie critics, don't watch this movie because Jim Carrey is in it, well unless you want to see him nude.
