A comedy about two guys who work at a bowling alley in Bremerton, WA. Todd's girlfriend dumped him after five years to pursue an acting career; Oded only gets laid ever eighty-eight days, but dreams of a more active sex life. They decide to make a movie.
I saw this film at the Seattle Intl. Film Festival last year, and I knew going in there wasn't going to be a great deal of actual nudity, based on the title -- read: irony. But, none whatsoever?? The guys keep saying "it's not porn!" as though they're defending some greater artistic aspect of this movie they're struggling to get made, even though there is _some_ adult content. But, there's no adult content. None at all. They keep talking about nude scenes to film and scenes with lesbian sex, but, you guessed it -- never happens. So, all we have is two affable guys producing some low-budget flick we couldn't care less about.
NUDITY REQUIRED opens strongly, with some good CLERKS-esque dialogue. But, it runs out of steam, and is tedious for well over an hour.
I did like the men's casting sequence, with a girl named Joey (local cutie Whitney Leigh) all over them. But, it's not enough.
