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.

Do you really need sex to sell a movie?
23 March 2012 | by (United States, Syracuse) – See all my reviews

I know I'm a female but do people have to use Sex to sell a movie? I suggest you get attractive woman next time. This has to be disappointing even for men. I watched the movie today because my husband bought it and he found the lame attempt at selling sex a disappointment as well. As a matter of fact he found the whole movie disappointing. I on the other hand disagree with him and enjoyed the silliness of it. The actors were all no namers except a few cameo's, but I liked the other actors better (guess you have to have names on the cover). I didn't really like the female lead but I liked her chemistry with the lead actor. The Marty character was played well and felt genuine compared to the obnoxious characters surrounding him which I did enjoy. The other characters are so great, I wish they would have just made a movie about them and left out the Sex crap. The movie was about porn being shot in the back of a car lot to help them raise money and out do another lot. Maybe I'm not familiar with how dealerships work but this situation was unrealistic with the cowboy banker making them compete. Again the movie is silly and light hearted, but I think it may take a certain taste. I liked it, my husband hated it.

Suggest renting not buying.
