Movie Reviews

No candy in this one!
Jelly Jar | Collinsville, IL USA | 01/21/2009

"Okay, I love Carmen Electra...she has a figure to die for, however, the concept of the movie and the DVD cover are EXTREMELY deceptive. There isn't a whole lot of Carmen at all in this flick. The character she plays is supposed to be a porn star, so you would think that she would show some skin when she does appear, right?
WRONG! There is more nudity in a Gremlins movie than in this cheeseball!
You can get a good look at her from behind about...oh, let's see...once, and she's only in lingerie throughout the entire flick, which is about all she wears on a day to day basis anyway.
So don't get your hopes up if you think you're going to see Carmen's fabulous figure in any more than her normal everyday pictures that are strewn out by the millions all over the internet.
A one star stinker!
The acting is ridiculously bad, the plot premise is way too far-fetched to take itself seriously (even for a comedy)! Who are these people anyway? I haven't heard of a single one of them being in any other notable movies! And it looked like it was filmed in someone's personal garage and backyard as well!
Poor production on all accounts!
STAR FACTOR: One miserable, let-down star!
Poor script

"Sorry, I just did not like this film. Every turn in the script was totally unbelievable, and it was not very funny.

Maybe some will like it. Put it this way: if you think that somebody eating toast with pubic hair in the butter is hilarious, and if are not bothered by the logic of two guys apparently believing that combining their epic love story script with a porn movie will get them into Hollywood, then you'll like this film."
Splendid nerds

"Carmen is not seen until suffering movie is one-half over.
How she teamed with these nerds is beyond words.
I guesss the answer is like asking Ed McMahon why he did commercials until he died--he needed the money.
Hey Carmen: you dont need stuff like this to film for us."
