Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: The only burst of creativity is the number of euphemisms Traeger has for pussy ("fruit cup" was my favorite)

- Amy Nicholson, I.E. Weekly, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: ultimately heartwarming and humorous enough to merit a recommendation

- Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com, Tuesday, July 29, 2008

Rotten: A sleazy, uninspired, pathetically unfunny sex farce.

- William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Monday, July 28, 2008

Audience Reviews

If you're going to make a porno, why not involve the whole town? Funny that. Definitely don't agree with everyone else on this one.

Hilarious film. Great ensemble cast. If you have ever tried making any film, then you will definitely relate to all the production problems that they go through in making their own film.
