A brief look into the life of John Holmes
13 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

XXXL: The John Holmes Story If you ask your parents who John Holmes is, I imagine they'll blush a little bit and they'll tell you, he was an actor from the 70's and 80's. Well, what kind of an actor you might ask? John Holmes was a male porn star with a 14 inch cock, that's who John Holmes is.

This movie is basically a documentary, with interviews from porn stars, ex wives, old girlfriends and friends of the late John Holmes who tell the story of his life and what it was like knowing him. Most of the time it's people talking about his huge dick,his compulsive lying and how charming he was.

I found the documentary was very interesting, but it was too short and I feel they could have gone into greater detail about his life and how he got started in the porn business, but I'm not the film maker, am I? We do get a good look into the life of John Holmes, his rise to fame, how he slept with over 14,000 women, then finally his drug addiction, a life of murder and his passing, as he died of AIDS in 1988.

If you're interested in John Holmes, I would recommend picking this up, as it's about the only movie I found about his life, but if you're just looking to pass the time, I'd try Boogie Nights which has a character based on John Holmes.

Overall: 6.3/10 By: Tyler Bigney
