Great Concept, Average Execution
4 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The very concept of the film is hilarious, but the film can't decide on it's audience - a rauchy, Will Ferrellesque comedy, a serious, adult drama, or an ABC Family movie about porn stars. It doesn't mix well. I saw this film in a theater a couple of years ago and the audience loved it - but it was mostly an older crowd. I couldn't help but feel then as I do now that the film was a missed opportunity at a larger audience.

Whitworth gives it his all, and the other side characters are solid. The production budget was slightly cheaper than I expected, but it doesn't strongly detract. Again, another case of good but with the potential for great.

I'd recommend it.
