Did You Know?

In the scene where Jim (Emilio Estevez) is shooting a film and Artie (Charlie Sheen) arrives on the set, they hug and fall onto a bed, and the film jumps several times, along with a number of quick whiteouts. This effect was not intentional. Director of photography Paul Sarossy forgot to charge the battery on the Steadicam, and as it ran out, it produced this effect. Sarossy was deeply upset by his mistake, but when Estevez saw the footage, he liked it, and decided to use the same technique several times in the film.See more »

Strong Performances by Real-Life Brothers makes this flawed film special., 25 August 2005
Author: Lucien Lessard from Canada

This film is Based on a True Story about the rise and fall of the porn filmmakers:The Mitchell Brothers (Played by Charlie Sheen & Emilio Estevez). The Mitchell Brothers made a famous porn film titled "Behind the Green Door". Once they become successful, they have to go through the American government, the mob, the woman's in their lives and even each other to create a San Francisco Porn Dynasty but the drugs and their intense relationship puts them apart.

Directed by Emilio Estevez (Men at Work, The War at Home, Wisdom) made a terrific if wildly uneven drama that, it was never release in theaters. Instend it got debuted in showtime entertainment network.

DVD has an bright Pan & Scan (1.33:1) transfer and an fine-Dolby Surround 2.0 Sound. DVD has an surprisingly amusing commentary tack by real-life brothers:Sheen and Estevez.

The french Canadian DVD has an sharp non-anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) transfer and an good-Dolby Stereo 2.0 Sound. This DVD is only in french with no subtitles.

This is an unfocused but extremely well made film. Watch for film director:Peter Bogdanovich appears in a cameo as a film school professor. A must see for the performances by Sheen & Estevez. (****/*****).
