Did You Know?

Goofs

The film is deceptively edited. Spencer Tunick did two Times Square shoots, one in 1997 and one in 1999. At the start of the film, his arrest at the 1999 shoot is incorporated into footage from the 1997 shoot. The Naked States tour happened 1997-98. The film makes it appear as if Spencer had criminal charges pending at the time of the tour.

Spencer's arrest and vindication are used to bookend the film. In fact, all that happened a year after the Naked States tour concluded. See more »

Not too shabby
29 August 2002 | by (Salt Lake City, Utah) – See all my reviews

My partner and I decided to rent this flick when we discovered that Pecker was already out. We were in the mood for a 'light hearted comedy', but ended up with this documentary. Not a bad choice. It was interesting to see the way in which Spencer Tunick chose to express himself--by encouraging others to be free and comfortable with their bodies. If you harbor inadequacies about your own, do not shy away from this, chances are, you will find somebody whose body is worse than yours. And don't worry about the title. It may look like you are renting a soft core, but it's really not much more than tan lines and pubes.
