A cash strapped feminist filmmaker secretly takes a job directing a porn film in order to get her thesis film, "Feminism For Dummies" out of the lab. Soon, her own slumbering sexuality is awakened in surprising ways. This arouses the suspicion of her politically correct husband, Hugh, and leads to a madcap finale of mistaken identity that threatens to upend Gillian's best laid plans. Written by
Note that at this writing, this movie get's an average of 2 stars. That's two stars more than it deserves. It's horrible.

Firstly, the two star rating is driven by someone who gave it 9 out of ten! And when someone does that AND it's the only review they wrote, you really have to wonder how they are connected to the film.
The acting is atrocious and the entire film is directed with a shaky cam. Maybe that works on The Office, but it's annoying here. How anyone raised $100K to make this garbage would be the really interesting movie!
Plot -- ultra feminist who wants a kid with her effeminate boy friend(who else would be dating a feminist? And he actually wears a pink satin robe!) is trying to raise money to get her film out of hock and finish her fembot documentary. Oh so original. She turns to porn to get the money.
What a load of laffs -- not. It's a borefest.
The director is nearly 50 and this is the only film she's made. Thanks be to God! In an interview on a Park Slope Blog (wow, she's hitting the big time) she says shes a feminist and doesn't want to be judged on how she looks but she's also been a hair model! Typical, right?
I stuck with this film hoping because it supposedly was filmed in LI and I wanted to see if there was any landmarks I could recognize. Shouldn't have bothered. They must not have been able to get any permits because most of the scenes are close ups! No joke. Closeups with a shaky cam!
One saving grace? It's 80 minutes long. Feels like 3 hours tho, and it's filled with all kinds of stereotypes.
So net net is stay away at all costs. Unless you can't get to sleep. It's a good substitute for Lunestra.
