Storyline

It's 1999 and lovable computer geek Lewis Henderson is dumped by his longtime girlfriend Sarah. So he does what any young urban slacker would: work less and beat off more to internet porn. But with the added pressures of his buggy Y2K software and repeated romantic rejection, Lewis discovers that the website images no longer turn him on... and thus begins his strangely satisfying sexual relationship with the machine itself. Ah, but all honeymoons must end and Lewis' eye starts to wander from his dependable home desktop. His desire for newer, sexier models grows until he finds himself lovin' neighbors' laptops and copulating with co-worker's CPUs. When his boss, Angela, vows to identify the "computer rapist", Lewis tries to throw off suspicion by dating the company's mousey receptionist, Jane. But there's more to Jane than meets the eye - with the new millennium fast-approaching and a massive motherboard calling, now he has to choose between his freaky fetish and the challenge of real ...

Y2K2: Porn Again
17 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

(UH…this is an adult review of an adult film that's technically not a porno. So…despite the lack of videos or pictures – Oh, God, I wish…with Tyler Labine starring – expect language. Turn back now, if you're offended with anything that the ABC Family Movie of the Week would frown upon…)

Ah, yeah. I'm a Tyler Labine fan. But, what a poor, poor soul. First Reaper gets axed, followed by Sons of Tucson. Soon, if not already, Mad Love is about to be cancelled.

Okay, so his TV career, no matter the talent and hilarity he brings to the table, isn't meeting America's standards, although a select few, such as myself, will follow him anywhere. Even into the silver screen.

Here's one I've been searching for a long time after I saw a Tyler Labine interview online with "crazy" subject matter: Control Alt Delete. I'll get to the fetish the movie explores, but suffice to say, Tyler's brother, writer and director Cameron Labine, really wanted to see his brother f&ck a computer. Maybe it's a brother rival thing or a bet they had. Either way, you'll see a more adult version of Man vs. Machine than even The Terminator ever addressed.

Poor Lewis (Labine.) He's faced with troubles at work: solving the Y2k "problem" – oh, did I mention, this is set a month and a half prior to January 1, 2000 and leading up to that New Year's Day? And he's becoming distant in the bedroom with his girlfriend. His difficulties in performance or more precisely, staying hard, leads him to, well, hardware. His computer.

Lewis likes porn. But he takes it a step further by "liking" his computer more. Okay, I'm beating around the bush…he shows his appreciation for the computer by drilling holes in it to…do I need to spell it out further?

Well, the girlfriend that, quite frankly, probably wouldn't be around in the first place in real life, leaves and when comp-sex addict Lewis tries out his "fun" at work, things go downhill for the newly appointed manager appointed to SAVE Y2K.

Believe it: the movie's supposed to be a comedy, with an offbeat boss, Angela (a hilarious Alisen Down) and his antics with the computer. Honestly, I didn't find it all that funny. I didn't find it bad, but I wasn't laughing out loud, especially with the toned down Tyler Labine. I did, however, find it interesting with its no holds barred approach to sexual tendencies, ones I'll never partake in, but exist nonetheless.

It's as independent as they (forgive me) come, but it's worth a viewing if…You like Tyler Labine – you'll see him shirtless sometimes, nude from the back and implied masturbation, let alone, again, humping a computer. Talk about an original, albeit funky idea for a film. I mean, these brothers – star and writer/director – must have actually sat down together to discuss the sex-with-computer-fetish that I, personally, never heard of. Maybe it exists, maybe it doesn't. Either way, it's not porn I wanna see.

OH! I forgot, there's a story behind it that's sometimes humorous, especially with the help of cube-partner Keith Dallas and that hilarious and unfortunately true-to-life boss, Angela. And there's his descending and spiraling romance with the short-legged Jane (Sonja Bennett) that's interesting – to a degree.

I'd recommend, but it's not for everyone. I would be most interested in hearing from Tech/I.T. people, such as my own personal ex, on the technical aspects of the film. Yeah, I know its set 11 years ago, but it looks like, in my uneducated eye, at least 2 decades, in regards to computers. Either way, it's worth a viewing. But know this, it's a VERY MATURE film; it's not for the squeamish or prude.
