Editorial Reviews

In this irreverent comedy, awkward teenager Tobe (Dustin Ingram) sets off on a road trip to meet Monica Velour (Kim Cattrall), his favorite '80s porn star, at a rare live appearance hundreds of miles away. Instead of the glamorous sexpot portrayed on film, he finds a 49-year-old single mom living in a trailer in rural Indiana, performing at seedy strip clubs to make ends meet. A starry-eyed Tobe, still captivated by his crush, befriends Monica, further complicating her difficult life. Kim Cattrall gives a career-defining performance in this offbeat love story that appeals to the dreamer -- and the nerd -- in all of us.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cute little "coming of age"movie September 25, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie was a pleasant surprise.
It is a shame it did not more attention.

Truth be told, based on previews I was concerned it would be some cheap, stupid, teen comedy with an excuse for sleazy sex jokes.

To the contrary, it was a charming and amusing "coming of age" movie about a geeky guy who loves nostalgia who does a lot of growing up and discovering important things about life when on his first big solo adventure on the road.

A much better film than I was expecting.

Probably Kim Cattrall's best acting performance of her career - and she was brave enough to gain weight and skip make-up in order to try and make the characterization genuine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kim Cattrall carries the movie August 28, 2011
By Dave
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for Samantha from Sex and the City, forget it. Kim Cattrall shows her acting chops and plays an entirely different character here. This film is held together by Cattrall; in fact, until she shows up, it is difficult to watch. Once she appears though, the film starts picking up and ends up worth watching.

Cattrall plays Monica Velour, an over the hill porn star who is short on money and energy. She wants to get custody of her daughter, but with a jerk of an ex-husband hellbent on on putting her down, Velour can see no other options but to go back to stripping and porn. Meanwhile in the state of Washington, Tobe (played by Dustin Ingram), is a 17 year old who likes old music and 70s porn starring Monica. Living with his grandfather, he sees very few options for himself after graduating from High School until he happens to see that Monica will be stripping at a nightclub in Indiana. Not caring that she is some 20-30 years older from the peak of her porn career, Tobe embarks on a road trip to Indiana to finally meet her in person. The movie goes back and forth from heavy-hitting/unpredictable to sweet/predictable; the relationship between these two unlikely people is fascinating to watch, thanks to Cattrall's performance. Ingram plays the part of an extremely awkward teen well, but it is difficult not to think of Napoleon Dynamite; Ingram's character seems to be entirely patterned after him. The ending is fairly satisfying, although it does seem a little rushed and clipped together. I could have used a few more scenes about Monica and her journey before seeing a photo of a postcard that signifies a rushed (and somewhat unlikely) happy ending for her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kim Cattrall is Terrific! September 5, 2011
Format:DVD
Kim Cattrall drops her SEX AND THE CITY persona and turns in an award-caliber performance in the title role of MEET MONICA VELOUR, now available on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

A coming-of-age story, the film, written and directed by Keith Bearden, centers on a dorky, seventeen-year-old recent high school graduate (Dustin Ingram), who lives with his cantankerous grandfather (Brian Dennehy) and worships the movies and pin-u photos of Monica Velour, a gorgeous adult film star of the 1980s.

Ingram, learning that Monica (Cattrall) will be appearing at a strip club in rural Indiana, decides to drive there from his home in Auburn, Washington, and see his "goddess" in person. When the aging former sex queen appears on stage, members of the small audience boo her and, after he tries to defend her, Ingram is beaten and she is fired.

Monica is a broke, single mother, living in a trailer park and fighting with her brutish ex-husband for custody of their young daughter. Ingram falls desperately in love with her; wants to "save" her from her squalid life. Unfortunately, Monica does not want saving, but she does feel a certain empathy for this young, geeky Don Quixote.

Sad, but ultimately charming, MEET MONICA VELOUR is a film with which many viewers will be able to identify.

The DVD contains four deleted scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars This Proves Love is Blind April 23, 2012
Format:DVD
Adolescence is a period of barely controlled insanity. Adulthood isn't much better. "Meet Monica Velour" proves it!

Kim Cattrall ("Sex and the City" and "The Ghost Writer") is the infamous Monica, a talent-less former porn star gone to seed. Her main fan is a gawky 17-year-old boy from Auburn, Washington, who has collected all her videos, posters, press clippings and publicity items from websites, video stores, yard sales and E-Bay. This goofy kid is played to geeky perfection by Dustin Ingram (lots of TV) whose character is out to prove that love IS blind!

Our hero is the proprietor of a mobile hot-dog vending van; it has a giant hot dog mounted on the roof. His father is a boozy retiree, played by Brian Dennehy (working hard on stage and screen since 1977), who gives his son the keys to the van as a high-school graduation present. The boy instantly lists it on E-Bay and finds a buyer in the mid-West, not too far from the last known address of his dream girl.

Off he goes and our story begins....

This 2010 Seattle International Film Festival entry is well written and capably directed by Keith Bearden. Cattrall certainly is not afraid to depict a less-than-admirable character and our hero perfectly illustrates the nuttiness of adolescence. (But everyone's teeth are too white; they look fake.) You can get this new or used from Amazon.com.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good.
Other than having a very aged Kim Cattrail, there 's not much to the movie. I thought it was very poor.

5.0 out of 5 stars The honest side of porn.
This could become a cult classic. This is the kind of movie that makes a bad weather day enjoyable even worthwhile.

This is a sleeper that will wake you up and have you giving it a standing ovation. There is nothing about the acting, script, direction or production that could be improved.
