A team of investigative documentarians set out to follow the making of a late night, made-for-television Mature Movie, to capture an inside look at mainstream American movie practices and sensibilities at their lowest. Along the way they unexpectedly meet Armondo Jones, Bill Williams, and their 'crew of friends;' all first time Mature Movie makers who find themselves in a desperate struggle against their employers to bring social value to The Lone Rancher, a soft-core epic period piece they've been hired to write, direct and co-produce. As the production spins out of control, the team of friends sidesteps the studios contractual demands of sex and nuance, risking their jobs, in a game of cat-and-mouse, scraping to protect the 'important' love story they believe The Lone Rancher can provide. On this most unlikely of battlefields: a Mature Movie set in Northern California, the documentarians capture firsthand footage of what happens when opposing groups with fundamental differences try ...

wonderful, endearing film with a lot of bite!
28 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is a terrific film with a completely fresh and unusual view of the world of "moneywood" where ideas are only used when they fit the long established tedious "formula" for economic success. this well written script brings a team of documenterians into the world of the mature film.What could be lower? It gets a little racy, but the humor and comedic lines give style and a new and refreshing face to the viewers experience. It's the battle for whats good and new, versus what's old and known. the protagonists try to make more than just another adult film...they are shooting for something bigger,better, inspiring through cinematic creativity. At every turn they are thwarted by a production company that long ago gave up the new, for a "formula movie" enforced by lawyers.The whole process is dutifully recorded by the documentary film team. It's funny, it's inspiring. Really a good film. We all become insiders. Eagles in the Chicken Coop could become the bible for all future film makers!
