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

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.

Brilliant movie! Absolutely love it, by far one of the better films I have seen in quite a while. Here's an interesting story plot about a fantastic group of friends who decide on a whim to make a porn film. One purpose: to improve their lot in life, and support a friend in need. Great all-around cast (and among my favorites): Jeff Bridges, Ted Danson, Tim Blake Nelson, Joe Pantoliano, & William Fichtner. Patrick Fugit tops off this crazy bunch. Hilarious scenes. A must-see! Great music.

Weird. Funny, but weird.
