Did You Know?


A scene was cut from the film where J.C. Chasez's character ends up at a Hollywood orgy where everyone is dressed up like a dog with "Eyes Wide Shut" masks and on drugs. An orchestral version of "Who Let the Dogs Out" sung in the style of a Meatloaf ballad was set to accompany it. See more »


At about 1h 30 mins when Nick is singing on stage, his voice switches to microphone in sync with the music, although he doesn't take the mic from CJ for another 10 seconds. Then when he steps off the stage singing and walking towards Chloe, his voice continues to come from the speakers even though he's wearing no sound equipment. See more »


Chloe: Seriously, I can't keep up with your sexual workload.
Malcolm: Well what about you and Nick? How many times did y'all do it a week?
Chloe: I don't know, three, or four.
Malcolm: Ha!
[starts chuckling]
Chloe: What?
[Malcolm continues to laugh]
Malcolm: Awh, honey.
Chloe: What do you- What is wrong with that?
Malcolm: [to Nick, who's just arrived] Come here. Nicky, come here. You mean to tell me, you were only entering this beautiful creature three or four times in a *week*?

User Reviews

Take this 1 with a pinch of salt
23 June 2017 | by kevr1977See all my reviews

Other people are saying this movie fails because it's copying other movies about the behind the scenes of theatres , but this film is so much cleverer than that.

It's wholly based on old 1 hit wonder songs that we all know, the movie is not about taking it serious at all. Some of the songs will take you back to places that some people will remember.

It's no masterpiece of a movie, it's meant to be cheesy but it's still a clever production.

Give it a go.. it's all about having a little bit of fun.
