Storyline

Jody has arrived in Hollywood, fresh out of a New York film school with student awards in hand, and ready to get her film made. Problem is Jody can't get a job and can't get anybody to read her script. The only job Jody can get is as an editor at a porn production company. Still determined to get her film made, Jody attempts to use the studio's facilities, but the repercussions if she gets caught, might be more than she can handle. Written by napierslogs

Trivia

There are several porn scenes shown being shot or on an editing screen during this movie, but none of them show full male frontal nudity. However, Jamie Kennedy, who plays one of the actors shooting both of the movies within this movie, is not shown exposing his genitals during a porn sex scene, but instead is shown exposing his full genitals at a party, which is not a scene in either of the movies being filmed within this movie.

Young female writer meets the porn industry
15 February 2010 | by carolgmama44See all my reviews

I loved this film!!! The acting and directing were wonderful, especially for an independent film. The story has a heart,good values and lots of fun to watch!!! LeeLee Sobieski was terrific, she truly made me root for her! Matt Davis, Donna Marie Recco and Jamie Kennedy are true professionals- very good acting by all!!! It must have been difficult to make a film about the porn industry, while keeping it semi-clean, and still making it funny, yet showing the deep emotions of the characters. This film succeeded in achieving this goal.This film made me see the porn actors from a different perspective. Hope that this director makes more films. This is much better than many of the huge budget films out there now!!!
