The interior of Phil and Chris' home is the same set used for the 2011 pornographic movie Jules Jordan presents Ass Worship 13 in the scenes with porn star Franceska Jaimes. See more »


After Duffy's "injury" while he is lying on a bed, Phil and the rest of the cast bring Duffy's "magic collar" to him. Phil is wearing a plaid shirt with short, plaid sleeves. In the shot where Phil is putting Duffy's collar on him, his shirt sleeve is that of a decorative Hawaiian shirt, but in the very next shot, Phil is wearing his original plaid shirt. See more »


Chris: We're dudes, and we're pretty sloppy dudes too.
Phil: Yeah, we just have to change a few of the parameters. Are you ready to give it a try?

Bizarro Soft Porn sets mixed with home computer special effects
14 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wasn't sure whether to give it one star out of ten, or ten stars for the films pure lack of any sort of slot to fit it in to. For one thing- the soft porn style sets are not your imagination, the director, David DeCoteau not only makes gay porn- he also directs CHILDREN'S films. And uses the same sets.. makes me uncomfortable knowing children's films are also done by this same guy, under an alias company name "1313" on IMDb. Thanks Nathan Rabin, I KNEW it. You just confirmed my fears.

Soft porn music, lighting, sets... the crappiest special effects for the talking cat ever. Picture a photo shopped-style moving black "mouth shape" for the poor cats mouth- and a drunken sounding Eric Roberts as the cat's voice. The cat is neither cute, nor cuddly- the film does not use the cat pictured on the film's ad poster.

The film totally reminded me of "The Room" in it's weirdly quiet way. I was waiting for a character to waltz in and casually mention "didn't you hear? I have cancer.. Bye!" A million dollar budget?? Why? How? I wonder if some of their budget went to "hush money" to the child actors' parents. Wouldn't surprise me! This is one of those "you've GOT to WATCH this" films.
