Adult film director Jack Horner is always on the lookout for new talent and it's only by chance that he meets Eddie Adams who is working as a busboy in a restaurant. Eddie is young, good looking and plenty of libido to spare. Using the screen name Dirk Diggler, he quickly rises to the top of his industry winning awards year after year. Drugs and ego however come between Dirk and those around him and he soon finds that fame is fleeting.Written by
The 1977 Corvette is described as being a car with a 350 cubic inch engine producing 325 hp, a 4.10:1 rear end gearing, having a 4 speed manual and an aftermarket intake manifold. This is not true. As this is a California car, it had the de-tuned L82 California emissions engine. This engine produced a mere 165 hp and is actually the least powerful factory V8 engine put in a Corvette. Even with a good aftermarket intake, this thing would not be close to 325 hp. It would need new cylinder heads, a new camshaft and a new carburetor to make even close to 325 hp. See more »
This is not so much of a review as it is a testament that it has been proven, yet again, that the Academy rewards money, not artistic accomplishment. And I must say I am saddened that this usually artistic and intelligent band of imbd members have left this off the top 250. Boogie Nights is powerful, raw, and gutsy through script, direction and acting. Very few movies can claim this triple crown.
