Storyline

Joe and Baggy are two misfit English film school students whose first movie goes awry. Desperate to finance their flick, they turn to a porn producer who agrees to give them the money needed in exchanges for the guys to cast a semi-retired adult film star named Candy (Carmen Electra). Though Candy agrees to the deal, but Joe and Baggy's efforts to make their own movie morphs into a raunchy show which they use Joe's suburban parents house as their set. Written by matt-282

Terrible
5 September 2007 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

"I Want Candy" is a classic British comedy. A breath of fresh air. It is well written with great performances (Carmen Electra especially is a revelation as porn goddess Candy Fiveways and shows just what a great actress she is) and great production values. Stephen Surjik's film is a welcome addition to the pantheon of comedies dealing with the war between the sexes. Along the way the script makes several incisive points about the infiltration of pornography in modern life during the 21st century, and asks probing questions such as, who exactly is exploiting who? "I Want Candy" is a classic. It's a triumph!

Are you kidding us?

Yes, I am.

"I Want Candy" is terrible.

There is one great piece of gross slapstick involving a male actor who gets a bit... er... carried away, but other than that I don't think I laughed once. I like a good sex comedy as much as the next guy, but this is not a good sex comedy. It is terrible. Awful, awful, awful. Shame on Ealing Studios being associated with such nonsense.

On the bright side, Michelle Ryan does look very nice.
