Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: This may be the worst movie Pauly Shore has ever been in. Think about that. If you dare, go on Netflix and test the hypothesis.

- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Friday, September 9, 2011

Rotten: The entire premise feels about 35 to 40 years out of date, and while the porn business is a supremely easy target for comedy, this movie doesn't have any idea of what might be funny about it, besides perhaps "tee-hee - boobies."

- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap, Friday, September 9, 2011

Rotten: Through all this, one feels nothing more strongly than an acute sympathy for all involved -- in particular Ricci, who gives her role more than it deserves, and Herrmann, a classy character actor who once won a Tony.

If funny is feeling sick and not laughing, this film is hilarious. Congratulations and welcome to my top 11 worst films of all time list, Mr. Bucky Larson!
