Robert Wagner was originally cast in the Hugh Hefner role, but when the rough cut was screened for Hefner's approval, he was so amused by the film that he agreed to play himself. As a result, all of Wagner's scenes had to be scrapped and re-shot. See more »

Critics tended to pan this movie. While I'll admit that the movie tended to lean towards gross and raunchy humor at times (especially the sex scenes, the "flasher" scenes, and the lesbian car driver characters) and that it didn't seem to be fit for all tastes or aiming for being a classic, I still enjoyed the movie and thought it was truly hilarious. What else can you expect from a movie that centers around Playboy magazine? My favorite scenes were with Molly Stanton chasing after the best friend after, during a pole dance scene, he instigated her into having a seizure with strobe lights and tried to pry her off of him by stabbing her in the face with a fork. Her chasing after him and getting the fire department to do the same were, in my opinion, the funniest scenes. I also liked the road trip scenes and Tucker's meeting with Hugh Heffner. You might like this movie. It really depends on your taste and "material threshold." Give it a try if you're in the right mood.
