Storyline

Wayne Beering and Buck Dolby are drugged out geniuses with lots of ideas but they can never seem to get their act together. But when they come up with the idea to create a porn site - and charge for it (the first ever site to do so), their idea may be too lucrative for them to handle. Straight-laced business man, Jack Harris, is brought in to team up with them and turn their profitable idea into a legit business. Making money in the pornography industry is pretty easy, but staying true to yourself when surrounded by that much wealth, luxury, sex, crime and temptations, is much harder. Written by napierslogs

Beautifully narrated Intelligent film!!
25 July 2011 | by raj504See all my reviews

Aah! It had been a long time since i watched a movie like this one. I heard the name of the film somewhere and i checked it out on IMDb. I felt the plot damn interesting. Its about the guys who started the first pornography web site and the consequences they faced after it. I loved the plot and i downloaded the movie right away.

This movie is something like "The Social Network". I am not comparing it with TSN, i was just telling that this film belongs to that type. It was totally interesting. This movie started off great and it never lost its pace from the beginning to the end. The narration was brilliant. The dialogues were just awesome. All the actors did a great job. I say this is one of the finest films i watched recently.

This is a great film. I had a great time watching it. This film is not for everyone but still, it is worth giving it a try.
