great fun!
18 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

wonderfully fun film! The premise of a porn star moving in my his parents in their retirement community could be treated for broad laughs, but is handled often with subtle humor and even a dose of seriousness.

Johnny Whitworth dives fully into Vick Velour/Andy. From the opening scene at a porn convention to the moment where he's about to toss himself off the edge of a building, you sense Andy's disenfranchisement with his choices and not just his business. Like the rest of the film, he could have played the role just for yucks. Instead, he's equal parts dramatic and comedic.

The film is choked full of great cameos. Barry Corbin, Garrett Morris, Graham Greene; all of them deliver solid performances and Morris in particular is hilarious. It's fun to see actors you remember not only get an opportunity in a great movie but deliver as well.
