Trivia

Several times during the movie is mentioned Electra did a lesbian sex scene where she makes love with herself. When people ask her about how this was done, she eludes the question. Later it is revealed Elektra has a twin sister, Celia and they both appear on screen at the same time when Elektra visits Celia in jail and they are identical (apart from hair, make-up and clothes, obviously) so at this point the viewer can deduce the aforementioned sex scene was played by Elektra and her sister.

In the final credits, Celia is credited as played by Taryn Gugino, leading the viewer to believe Carla Gugino has a twin sister but this is false. Celia was really played by Carla Gugino herself and she doesn't have any twin sister. See more »

A very moving and somewhat funny movie about a porn star trying to change her life. Not what I expected its better. I say B+
17 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"What kind of person are you?" Retiring pregnant porn star Elektra Luxx (Gugino) fills her days by teaching a sexology class. After being approached by a stranger with a tie to her dead ex-boyfriend her day starts to get weird. If you have seen the previews to this then you think you know what the movie is about. You would be wrong. From what I saw I expected a very funny comedy. While this movie does have it's funny moments, at its core it actually a very moving story. A woman who is trying to figure out where her life is is the one everyone seems to go to for advice, help or anything she can provide. Being that the movie is about a porn star there are a few pretty raunchy scenes and dialog, but no where near what you would have expected. There is a shot a a male and female butt and that is the extent of the nudity. The acting and characters are very entertaining that it makes you want to watch and see everyone get what they want. This is not at all what I expected, it was better. Overall a very touching, and somewhat funny story about finding out and being comfortable with who you are. I give it a B+.

Would I watch it again? - I think I actually would.
