This DVD takes you back to high school, when everything about sex was veiled in mystery. Hormones were out-of-control, it took very little to put you in a frenzy and for the life of you, you couldn't figure out what was going on.
As a catharsis to these newfound emotions (and to make a little $$ along the way), 3 high school kids go about to make their own porn movie. Their angle? Porn movies made by virgins - FOR virgins!
One would think that the logistics of making a porn movie would not be too difficult. Ironically, they have no problem finding the girl (played wonderfully by Sara Jane Potts) and equipment. The hard part is finding a suitable guy(!) and actually filming a scene without wrecking the equipment and constantly bickering about the "artistic tone."
The result is a hilarious story. Thrown in for good fun is a veteran porn star who doesn't like a bunch of "kids" encroaching on his turf. He bears a remote resemblance to Ron Jeremy, and some of his antics seem to suggest that Jeremy is whom they're alluding to.
Much like VAN WILDER, this is a feel-good party movie. Sometimes, after a long work week, feel-good party movies are the best possible movie on the DVD menu!
Have you seen American Pie? Of course you have, everyone has. Have you seen National Lampoon's other stuff? Of course you have, everyone has. Have you seen Animal House? Of course--wait... wait... I caught a large portion of it on the television but I haven't seen all of it. Well that's okay, I got the point.
Did you like those films?
Well, whichever way you answer the above question will determine what your enjoyment of this film will be like. I myself don't really think those films are THAT BAD, they're just not THAT GOOD. That wonderfully politically correct way of saying that this film was pure fluff but I laughed anyway.
Well I didn't necessarily laugh, but it was amusing. I think if it weren't for the fact that the father figure tries to pull a Eugene Levy, the stupid high school bully is trying to be a Stifler, and sometimes the characters seem to do things that not only don't fit with their character in the film, but don't match anything that happens in real life, this would be a pretty good movie.
Even despite those details (which are actually minor in the way they were presented), the film does its job and does it right. The overall structure is cliched, but mostly the tone isn't. Scenes like the porno actress having dinner with the family when the girlfriend walks in, or the fact that said girlfriend isn't what he's looking for in the first place, stuff like that is enough to relax and enjoy the film if you're willing to not worry too much about wasting your time.
I would have to say that, if anything, the whole competitor storyline and all that Scarface stuff really got to me the most, considering I find the Scarface dream to be an utterly banal and hideous allusion for everyone to always make, and the competitor was just kind of stupid overall.
