Nice, nerdy Xenia, Ohio senior high school reporter Chris Hughes (18), paperboy and cool quarterback Hudson Reed's cool pack's punching-ball, can't even get girls to attend a free booze-party. When Chris's biological parents, publisher Peter Mack and nude model Honey, die, he inherits a horny teenager's wet dream: Heaven magazine porn empire, a huge Hollywood 'play heaven' villa and $87,000,000 cash, which instantly makes him Mr. Popularity. However his uncle Duncan 'Duncay' Mack plots with lawyer Michael Hunt, the trust administrator, to cover up their embezzlement and steal the firm while the naive heir parties and barely attends school.Written by

At the beginning of the movie as the main character arrives to school on his scooter, there's a sign pointing to the Elementary school & High School. The word ELEMENTARY is Missing the Letter "N". It just says ELEMETARY. See more »
Brandon Davis stars as Chris Hughes (or Chris Mack), a nerdy high school loser whose only wish is to know what it is like to be popular. Soon, a lawyer name Michael Hunt (yeah, Mike Hunt) shows up on his doorstep and tells him his real parents have been killed in an accident and that he should be at the reading of their will. It turns out that his parents are Peter and Honey Mack, the publishers of a very successful adult magazine named Heaven, complete with "Angels" as centerfolds. Of course, the antagonist is trying to get the company for himself and will stop at any means to get it, in this case, his Uncle Duncan.
This movie started out with some gross out humor, similar to what you would find in American Pie, but less funny, and ended up being more like The Girl Next Door. The main problem here is that it tried to hard to be funny. It was reasonably funny but most of the movie could have been polished up and Brandon Davis was too over the top as a geek. Ali Landry played a great centerfold (as she probably would be) and Wayne Newton played a great, but short, role as an adult magazine CEO. His magazine, Heaven, is supposed to be Playboy, or like it. Painfully obvious with the smoking jackets, mansions, etc.
Bottom line is, this movie is not one of the great comedies, but you could do much worse than this. If you are watching this because you are expecting nudity or a lot of sex, you will be disappointed. I can give about 6.5 stars out of 10.
