Sean McGinnis (Michael Cunio) apply(and get the job) for a job as a cameraman in Janus Studio, which produce gay porn films, so he can work closely to his porn idol Johnny Rebel(Scott Gurney). This the basic story that serve as vehicle for a behind the scenes film about the porn industry. And it is a rather good vehicle. The story is simple and in the script writter Wash Westmoreland have inserted some one-liners which say something about the industry. I admit that there is nothing new in what he says(gay for pay,what actors in the industry do after their "career" before the camera ends, drugs in the industry, the short career they have and etc.) but he still manage to keep you interested with what happened with the characters.

Scott Gurney is the perfect casting for the role of Johnny Rebel and Sean McGinnis is good as the naive but obsessed cameraman. But the best performance come from Robert Walden(Chad Cox) and Roxanne Day(Babylon)and only(but not only) for their performance the film is worth watching.

This is not Boogie Nights(it lacks the complexity of that one) but it is nicely done, a little bit funny and engaging.
