Editorial Reviews

Needing money to send her documentary, "Feminism for Dummies," to the Cannes Film Festival, struggling feminist filmmaker Gillian Black gets a technical job on an indie film that turns out to be a porn flick. When the director quits, a desperate Gillian agrees to replace him in exchange for her finishing funds. Over a hectic weekend, she secretly researches porn movies and by Monday, she has transmuted schlock into art - or at least high class porn. Her husband, Hugh, however, is convinced that Gillian's surreptitious activities are evidence of an extra-marital affair and he decides to see for himself what his wife is up to.

It's not award winning, but it is fun and silly and a bit sexy. Interesting how the two worlds collide and gain some respect.

I know this is a B movie, and some times the actors deliver the lines a little flat, and some of the dramatic pauses are a little to long. But, if you have patience, and a love of quirky comedy with some some romance, then give this film a shot. I thought it was cute.

No, this "independent" film has nothing to do with skiing or even a mountain. I have no idea why writer/director Sarah Schenck chose it. (Actually, it might have made SOME sense if the original title sequence - included as a "deleted scene" - had been used. It shows the leading actors playing in the snow on a slope.)

The firm won an award for Best Film at the LA Broad Humor Festival and I guess that makes sense as it certainly is filled with "broad humor" (and, no, I'm not making a pun about the naked female cast). There's plenty of nudity in the film, though none frontal and all being done for fun.

Underneath the humor and satire of the budget porn industry there is a more serious story about a husband who wants a family and his wife (an independent film director - much like Schenk- who makes feminist films and doesn't seem to be interested in "making a baby").

Filmed on a fairly small budget (it shows), this will not win any big acting awards but I've certainly seen worse. It was interesting to see two alternate endings to the film. I think it would have made more sense to use one of those. Then again, I'm not the Director and she made the choice.

The images appeared to not be as crisp and clear in the first 20 minutes or so of the film, but then sharpened up. Maybe Schenck was using a lower grade of film.

Anyway, it's worth watching once. Just don't look for any skiers in the film!

Even though it leaned toward budget movie, the actors did a decent job. The change in the lead's attitude was gradual and believable. Surprisingly cute.

I'm sorry, but I disagree with most of the raters. The story is cute and believeable. The acting was fine. It was about porn but was not porn. The story develops well and smoothly. The dialog is pretty smooth. The line delivery was natural and smooth. The scenery was not lavish but was adequate for the story. Sometimes a low budget film can be better because there is more emphasis on the acting and less on the set. I will purchase this film so I can watch it whenever I want to. It is not grossly presented and the nudity and sex scenes are a natural part of the story and not overly emphacised or contrived or added just to increase the rating. If you and your spouse are open minded, enjoy the film. If you sre not, watch someone who is initially like you be transformed. The film may also ask the question "what is porn?" Is a film porn just because it has explicit sex in it? Or does it have to exploit sex to be porn?

The story was good and the acting was what you would expect from a comedy (silly at times but sweet and decently thought provoking at others). It was a fun film about people dissolving some of their hard held beliefs in the face of reality, and learning how to be more well rounded humans because of it. Good stuff.

If you aren't a fundamentalist, or a prude, and are capable of delivering "physical" (didn't want to say sexual since it looks like a lot of religious people have reviewed this film :) pleasure in your relationships, then you will probably enjoy this film.

Just horrible. Boring, poorly acted, poorly directed and not worth a moment of anyone's time. I was hopeful but this was terrible.
