James Ronald Whitney wastes no time in telling the audience that this film is a pitch for a possible game show, a game show that must be watched after the kids have been put to bed. Full-frontal nudity, a boatload of it, is the least surprising thing about the film. We are first made privy to the auditions for the film, which turn out to be very interesting in themselves. The entire film was shot in 72 hours, which is why the raw feel to its production is forgivable. If anything, it actually enhances the experience of watching it and lends some credibility to the film.

The question the film asks the audience directly is: What would people do to win $10,000? While that amount is minuscule compared to the grand prizes awarded on other shows, it will no doubt be higher if the show is picked up by a network. Once the foundation for the film is in place, 90 minutes of adult pranks, voyeurism and stunning confessionals follow. Where most "reality" shows are inflated and overly self-conscious, Whitney's film does not claim to be something it's not and it makes no apologies for its content. It has a rare kind of integrity to it and ultimately, the viewer is rewarded with a satisfying ending, one that has you secretly craving a little more.
