Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Anyone who fantasizes about becoming a porn star should see Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy, a cheerful documentary that paints a sympathetic but clear-eyed portrait of the most successful male porn star of all time. Through remarkably frank interviews with the man himself and a variety of friends and associates (including actresses, rival actors, and directors; porn moguls like Larry Flynt and Al Goldstein; and, most surprisingly, Jeremy's own family), Ron Jeremy emerges as a likeable but self-obsessed guy whose insatiable drive for fame and success is also a struggle to overcome loneliness and a lack of self-worth. Not that anyone's going to feel too sorry for a man who gets paid to have sex, but Jeremy's honesty and sense of humor deserve some respect. And despite all the flesh on display, Porn Star is more matter-of-fact than titillating, taking in its subject with a sociological distance. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

3.0 out of 5 stars There's a little Ron in all of us. May 5, 2003
Format:DVD
Guys (and girls too) you know Ron Jeremy. Chances are, if you have ever watched two [adult] videos, Ron Jeremy was in one of them. In fact, you probably fast-forwarded through his scene. However, as you were fast-forwarding (and laughing at how ridiculous sex looks at high speed) you were you thinking, wow, how did this guy end up in this video? Jeremy is short, hairy, and fat, and yet somehow is the world's most recognizable porn star. You just gotta wonder: how did he do it?
Well, ponder no longer, Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy has arrived. This 80 minute documentary follows a day in the life of Ron Jeremy while telling his life story. Interviews with his family, friends, and his, ahem, distiguished colleagues, keep it interesting as they discuss the man, the myth, and of course, the legend. Actually, Jeremy is a pretty regular guy, and dare I say, boring.
Seriously though, we all owe a little debt of gratitude to Ron Jeremy. Deep down in places not usually discussed at the dinner table, we all (generally speaking) admire Ron Jeremy: the ugly guy who gets the hot girls. Jememy was in the first porn I ever saw and I'll never forget it. This may not be the crowning achievement Jememy wanted, but it is his legacy. God bless him for it.

Adults Only! To some of us men, Ron Jeremy was our "Teacher". Through his films, he thought us how to make love and the art of sex. If there was something we do not know quite how to do well, Ron Jeremy could show us the professional way. He talks about his boyhood, growing up, one of his first times, and how he got into the adult film business. He will share with you many clips from some of his work and you will also get to see him "at work'. Much of the story is how Ron would like to be a legit actor in mainstream movies, but he has only been able to be an Extra or do small bit parts. In Hollywood, if you have been known to do porno films, your chances of being "an actor" working your way to an Academy Award is zero. (There have been a couple exceptions, mostly in the soap opear business). When "Hollywood" finds out you have done porn in the past, you're fired from your current acting job. Ron Jeremy is trying to break the conception. Now that Ron Jeremy is no longer the young stud of the 1970's and 1980's and has put on a few pounds, how is he still able to be wanted in the business and do more "adult" films? Ron and some of his friends tells you and shows you why at the age of 49. This DVD includes ADULTS ONLY material. Full Male Nudity and Full Female Nudity and Real Sex and Language. This DVD also includes many deleted scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Skin Deep December 17, 2005
Format:DVD
Ron Jeremy was not always the fat, slightly slovenly looking man he is today. When he entered the pornography business in the late 1970s he was reasonably if not uniquely attractive, determined to make a name for himself on stage and screen as a serious actor, and he saw pornography as a way to pay the bills and make contacts in the film industry.

The idea was not quite as far-out as it might seem. At the time, pornography was a big screen venue and films came with plots, dialogue, and reasonable budgets. As it happened, Jeremy had what it took to be a porn star and then some: a nine and three-quarters inch endowment and the amazing ability to control it on cue. But he failed to recognize a well-established show business fact that not even such legendary (and comparatively discreet) performers as Gypsy Rose Lee could overcome. Once a stripper, always a stripper. Once a porn star, always a porn star.

Twenty years after he made his adult film debut Ron Jeremy is still a porn star, only these days he is a chunky, sloppy one who commands a following largely due to his unlikely appearance and quasi-comic persona and who continues the career thanks to that near-inhuman control. And even as he takes a monthly AIDS test, scrambles for extra and bit work in mainstream film, and makes one porn flick after another he continues to dream of a "legitimate" acting career that will never come.

In theory, it is the stuff of both great comedy and great tragedy, but this fairly short documentary is neither; it has a touch of pathos, a touch of humor, but it never goes far enough in its exploration of Jeremy as a human being. I did laugh a little and I did feel a bit sorry for him, but the big questions were never asked and the big issues were never more than indicated.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but a missed opportunity January 11, 2005
Format:DVD
This is a better documentary than I expected, but it has its problems. Ron Jeremy comes across as a nice and sympathetic man, whose ambitions outside of porn are simply larger than his talents. Yet you have to admire a guy who soldiers on anyway; in Hollywood, persistence is the key to success. We get to see the workmanlike manner in which porn is assembled (hardly erotic), which is fascinating. The clips of his white trashs fans are not, which is unfortunate because there is an entire story there about the kinds of straight men who are devoted fans of a male porn star.

But missed opportunities abound in this movie. Ron is a man on the cusp of several important life choices. How will he face being too old to do porn in a few years? He wants to do more mainstream film, but can he give up the porn lifestyle? He appears to have some kind of relationship with the woman Venice we see a few times, and he talks about wanting a real relationship; can he make it work? There are some great stories there that are barely explored. And his enormous phone binder with all those notes - what a launch pad for a documentary!

The movie never quite jells; we get a bunch of disparate things that are jammed together, without much narrative or plot as you would expect from the best documentaries. But at a minimum, this is worth a rent, even if you are not familiar with the Hedgehog's work, or a big fan of porn.
