Uninspired and Unoriginal

This was a truly mediocre film, one tired cliché after another. I
honestly didn't expect much and would never have bothered to leave a
review, but the previous reviews were to preposterous to have been
Wooden acting, terrible dialogue, utterly predictable plot and possibly
the worst sound track I have ever heard; there is really no reason to
see this film. I am actually a fan of Lee Lee Sobieski and keep hoping
she gets a break into bigger roles, but this film was a serious bump in

No humour and no heart.

I rented this movie for a few reasons, neither of which was because I
thought it would be good. One, the cover of the DVD said "It's Boogie
Nights for women", the second was that it was about a recent film
school graduate who gets to work in the porn industry. Why? Well, not
only to pay the bills, but so that she can use the studio at night and
edit suites to make her own damn movie. Hmm...interesting.
Well, the film is really a direct to DVD quality film. You can
immediately tell, if you couldn't from the cast: Leelee Sobieski,
Denise Richards, Jamie Kennedy, Kristen Johnston and then some porn
stars. It was written and directed by a woman, so the film is her
basically a woman's view of the porn industry. Which is why I should
have known that the big nude scene would involve a male and not a
female. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Jamie Kennedy shows off his junk. I
was not impressed.
Obviously working as an editor on a porn movie during the day and
directing your own movie at night will take a toll on you, it does for
our lead character. She falls for a guy who is directing the porn, why?
Well, because every script needs some kind of romantic bit to it to
attract the audience. Otherwise, these two people would never hook up.
The comedy is tame and hardly funny, the drama has been done to death
before (her parents find out and disapprove) and she says some things
that her friends find out about and then...boom, she has no friends.
The real reason this film fails is because not only does it lack
humour, but it lacks heart. The film feels cold and dead inside, not a

Not so good ....

I have to say I too wanted to like this movie but unfortunately there
was very little to root for other that Denise Richards and almost all
of the supporting cast. The leads were too aware of themselves to make
us care about them. Too much makeup and too much playing suave ... and,
I wanted to like them both. There wasn't a second that I bought LeeLee
Sobieski as a "film geek", she was too ... Sara Jessica Parker. The
story was choppy and the dialogue was jumping all over the place. It
strangely felt at times that the actors were saying someone else's line
from another scene in someone else's movie. Denise Richards was pretty
amazing, I bought -- hook, line and sinker -- everything about her
performance. It's almost like I wish they could cut out her scenes and
put them in a better movie.
