Light hearted enjoyment
6 September 2013 | by (Soth Africa) – See all my reviews

Me and my GF watched this on cable last night and we both enjoyed the experience. Light hearted and positive we found it a restated belief in humankind. The shattering of stereotypes and the inclusive nature of the storyline was refreshing. The fact that men masturbate was not dodged or hinted it was an obvious fact and even in a group scene was not reflected as homo-erotic just as being a natural.

I particularly liked the way the parent/son relationship was portrayed. Mom and Pop, even though they had starred in porno back in the day, came across as loving proud parents and Bucky had obviously embraced good social values.

The normalization of the porn industry was well handled and yet the essential goodness of faithfulness was also brought to the fore.

All in all an amusing evening and the enjoyment of seeing some sensitive issues handled with a deft touch. Hats off to everybody involved.
