Editorial Reviews

I WANT CANDY follows two hopefuls trying to break into the movies. Encountering nothing but closed doors, their luck changes when an equally desperate producer (Eddie Marsan) is willing to throw some money at them provided they nab the star he needs. There's just one problem - he wants Candy Fiveways (Carmen Electra), the World's No 1 Adult Star.

1.0 out of 5 stars No candy in this one! January 20, 2009
Format:DVD
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.
ENOUGH ABOUT THAT...ON TO THE MOVIE:
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Ferris Beuller's Day Off" meets "The Full Monty" July 24, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Absolutely delightful fantasy about two clueless British guys trying to make it big in the film industry via a road less traveled. I found it hysterically funny. The juxtaposition of dry British humour with the production of a problematic porn film had me giggling helplessly. The best way I can describe this film is as a "Ferris Beuller's Day Off" meets "The Full Monty" kind of film. Seriously, I had to tape my ribs after watching this one. lol.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would not recomend October 12, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Amazon started by putting it in the wrong ratings category. That is Amazons fault not the movies. At best it was very a slow movie and had some funny points but like has been said before The label is very dissipative and it probably should of had a PG13 rating instead of the R

Very disappointed

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny! June 26, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a skin flick, this isn't it. The cover has more skin than you'll see in the movie.

If you're looking for a comedy of errors about the making of a skin flick, this IS it.

Think Risky Business meets Get Shorty in the suburbs of London.

When you need to have a gut busting good laugh, this is it.

I'll be honest, I only watched this because I was tired, it was free (Prime membership rocks!), and I wanted to see some "candy". I thought I'd watch for a bit and then switch to something more worthwhile after I got my fix. But the movie was really funny, and the acting was good. The situations weren't over played, and mostly non-cliche, which was the most surprising. I've never seen Carmen in a movie before, and while she's no Hepburn, I really liked her in this. Now that I've seen this, I think I'll stop avoiding films with her in them (sorry about that Carmen). Anyway, to sum it up, instead of getting my "candy" fix, I got my "really good comedy" fix instead. Very worth watching.
