Storyline

Joe Clarke (Tom Riley) and John "Baggy" Bagley (Tom Burke) are two misfit English film school students whose first movie goes awry. Desperate to finance their flick, they turn to a porn producer who agrees to give them the money needed in exchange for the guys to cast a semi-retired adult movie star named Candy Fiveways (Carmen Electra). Candy agrees to the deal, but Joe and Baggy's efforts to make their own movie morphs into a raunchy show for which they use Joe's suburban parents house as their set. Written by matt-282

sweet, charming...but not that funny
10 August 2007 | by georgevaderSee all my reviews

Two film students head to London with their script which they believe will be the first step to Hollywood, they hook up with a dodgy film producer who agrees to finance the film, provided they can get porns hottest star Candy Fiveways (Carmen Electra).

I Want Candy' it must be said is quite a sweet and charming film in a 'The Full Monty' kind of way, sadly though unlike that film, the laughs are few and far between it must be said, I think I went a full hour before a proper laugh, a very amusing scene that all I shall say "required wet wipes"! The only selling point this film would seem to have is the chance for men to see Carmen Elektra in various sexy outfits and states of undress, something I'm sure you could see say in a Playboy DVD, if she has one that is, not that'd I'd know about that sort of thing! Lightweight fluff all in all with a serious lack of laughs I'm afraid.

5/10
