85
The picture is rambunctiously affectionate; Guiterrez may go for the broad joke, but never the cheap one.
70
Elektra Luxx has a playful, breezy sexiness that gives the world of the film, porn biz and all, a refreshing innocence.
67
It is an utterly unique and highly ambitious project that isn't afraid to veer wildly from witty, risqué comedy to heavy emotional melodrama, often in the same sequence.
63
Does a lot of winking and teasing.
50
Elektra Luxx's episodic structure and candy-apple compositions make for a good time, even if Gutierrez lacks the narrative and syntactical muscle to pull off the sex-positive Tarantino-esque farce he seems to be after.
50
Despite the fine thesping seen in this innocuous piece of fluff, the whole amounts to less than the sum of its parts.
40
It's another episodic, shaggy-dog parade of L.A. denizens caught in moderately compromised positions.
40
Gugino is having a ball, but every scene feels like an oh-so-arch one-act.
40
A charmingly hardened Carla Gugino reprises her role as the titular porn star, still pregnant and now coping with retirement.
25
The movie, a sequel to 2009's much more sprightly and amusing indie "Women in Trouble," seems to be reaching for Robert Altman territory. Instead of offering many intriguing stories, though, it can't come up with even one.
