Smart satire of LA phonies and $$$ chasers
2 October 2002 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

A surprising entry in the indie DV arena: a dry, point-on parody of New Age delusionists, sit-com sell-outs and the lust for sex and cash. A little slow to start, Temptation eventually kicks in with smart dialogue, some good laughs and involving drama as two down and out new age X filmmakers have to choose between being wash-outs or sell-outs when they discover a 20 year-old sex tape of a big TV star in their library. In an age of dumb, gross out "comedies", Temptation dares to shoot for social satire, and scores. Nice cameos by familiar (to perverts, that is) XXX faces Randy West and Bridget Powerz, too.
