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

Foreign film-makers seem to be the only ones who know how to make a film. English film makers seem to be masters at mysteries, suspense movies, and thrillers are quite adept at comedies. "I Want Candy" (2007) is a hilariously-funny film about sex--which is done in an open and tasteful way.
Unlike American films, no disclaimers are necessary, and there is no 'sexphobia' here. Carmen Electra effectively delivers sexual titillation--but she also is beautiful, healthy, intelligent and a well-developed female, who actually prefers making a good, old-fashioned Hollywood movie. She's just too smart, and has too-much intellect, to waste herself on the porno industry. In this film, there is no blood and gore, or violence. And, the film does not rely on animation or special effects.
The film is aptly directed by Stephen Surjik. The screen-writer, Peter Hewitt, provides a predictable, but enjoyably-funny script. The film follows the exploits of two young and horny men, who try to break into the movie-making industry, any way they can. The two young man, Baggy (Tom Burke) and Joe (Tom Riley) sell their script, but not before they promise a producer (Eddie Marsan) that they'll deliver a film with top adult-movie star, Candy Fiveways (Carmen Electra). Will they be able to make it in movie land?

The color film is rated R, for sexual content, but the language is very tame. The runtime is 85 minutes of continual laughter (the film is so reminiscent of "Risky Business").
Recommended for adults, I rank the film an 8 out of 10. You will have a good laugh!
