Storyline

A car dealer who needs to raise money by the end of the month to stay in business, so he rents out the back of his dealership to a movie company, not knowing that the movie is a porn. That revelation comes at the most inopportune time, as the dealership is holding a big family day and the porn spills out onto the event. A variety of quirky characters make up the dealership sales staff, which complicates the efforts of the beautiful marketing expert who arrives to help generate sales, and ends up finding a mutual romantic interest with the dealership owner.

Man tries to make money at car dealership through mob
5 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film starts right off with gratuitous nudity. I suppose that is what it takes to make films today! Then it became progressively worse. There are a lot more nudity and sexual situations than certainly need to be in a film. Especially one with such a poor story. From time to time there is a single moment that made me smile, but they are so far and few between. Those moments never seem to have any purpose in the context of the entire film. I also noticed that the executive producer had a small part in the film - please don't ever do that again. I understand because you are signing the checks, you can do whatever you want, but wow, he can't act. On the whole, I am just glad it wasn't me who shelled out the money to watch it.
