So much fun!!!!
9 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film up at Sundance this year because we couldn't get in to another film and thank god we did. Besides some projector problems it was the best comedy I saw this year in Park City. The leads are so funny and the Perry character is the best smart a** ever. I hope everyone gets a chance to see this Seinfeld meets the Office mocumentory set in the porn world. It is well worth it. There is allot of guy humor but at a guys expense. The thing that surprised me the most was it also had a real story, I never felt like I was just watching one gag after another. I even clapped out loud at one point. If swearing offends you in anyway this may not be your cup of tea but it was used in a real way like Scarface. All in all it was a good all around comedy. I'm glad I finally was able to get some info on it two months later (I hope this one doesn't slip through the cracks like allot of good true indie comedies) That's all I have to say about that.
