Storyline

In Los Angeles, Jaron "Jizz" is a needy teenager that was molested when he was a child and works publishing advertisements for the sex industry. He discounts one hundred dollars in his paychecks to release Tara, who works in a peep-show in Paulie's, for the powerful lord of the sex industry Jimmy Sours. He teams-up with the whore Balery, who is seeking out a partner to steal from a rich client, to raise the necessary money to pay Jimmy. Mr. Garrett is the perverted Health teacher of a high-school; his sluttish students Melody and Courtney like to tease him, crossing their legs while wearing mini-skirts to see him masturbating in his car. Mr. Garrett takes them to join the Internet porn industry and to use pills, and Melody is raped by the sick teacher. The escort Chantel attends kinky clients to satisfy their fantasies and is protected by her pimp Wes. When Wes tries to force the entry in a client's house, the man reacts and the lives of the lead characters are entwined in a tragedy. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Funny As A Child Molester. An Insult To Intelligence
26 June 2008 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

A larded use of content considered taboo and shocking by the general populace with plenty of oddly written dialog coming at you wrapped in artistic pretension. On The Doll serves to exploit a serious issue. Pedophilia, molesters, right along side with their abused children are all here on the plate as entertainment. Though the editing is well executed its the opposite of being a '"star vehicle" for Brittany Snow. The other actors give us their best student like performances. Yes, this film is terrible but not in the fun way. The end leaves one wondering what is the exact personal problem(s)of writer/director Thomas Mignone to take such an interest here.
