(Full-length, unrated version) The film that was a theatrical phenomenon across the nation, PORN STAR: THE LEGEND OF RON JEREMY offers audiences a penetrating look inside the world of Ron Jeremy, America's most unlikely sex star and hero to millions.
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

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.
Throughout the film these three facts are somewhat repeated ENDLESSLY but through various friends, family, admirers and co-workers.
Its an entertaining, but short documentary that barely scratches the surface of what people really want to know about the world of porn. We learn all about Ron's amazing "talents" and his former loves...but the rest of the DVD is Ron trying to understand why no one from Hollywood will hire him.Yea, the AIDS test is scary....and should be....but that's really all there is on the serious side. The rest is Ron being a class clown. Fun and entertaining to watch...but what ISN'T said would be a heck of a lot more interesting.
Scott J. Gill offers us a look inside Ron Jeremy's life, a life that might be a dream to many but we actually learn that it is not all it's cracked out to be. According to Ron and friends, he does get lonely just like everyone else and all the money and the fame he has can't fix that. To some this might seem stupid since he is a porn star and whatnotbut loneliness conquers all. With this said, this documentary does not make you feel bad for this guy, it is actually far from it. Here you have a guy bordering the big 50 who has slept with a ridiculous amount of women. One time he actually had sex with 14 women for 4 hours straight, now if that's not stamina I don't know what is.
Ron's dream was to be a mainstream actor, not an adult star. However, he got into the business and it doesn't seem like he will be getting out any time soon even though he getting old.
This documentary shows Ron's adult film buddies such as Seymore Butts and Tabitha Stevens, along with many others who offer a word or two about this guy who proves that even guys that look like him can get girls. I guess it's true what they say, looks don't matter, the size does, at least this documentary seems to speak that.
