A screamingly funny movie done brilliantly in the typical British understated way. A group of friends, bored with their film school assignments, decide to make the script they’ve written into an actual movie. Unfortunately they discover the only way they’ll get funding is if they re-write it as an “adult entertainment” film and sign legendary porn star Candy Fiveways (Carmen Electra) to be the leading lady. The shenanigans that go on as they try to film the movie are flat-out hysterical, but don’t let the R rating fool you into thinking this is a skin flick. Everything related to the actual porn is alluded to but never actually shown, with the hilarious exceptions of the gross-out scene needing a wet-wipe and the slice of buttered toast (you’ll see…). Of course, the subject material alone deserves the R rating and since this is a British film there is quite a bit of casual profanity scattered throughout. However, I think classifying this as raunchy is misleading, as this comes nowhere near the low brow and frankly disgusting content of, say, Bridesmaids. This reminded me more in flavor of The Full Monty, although the premise is quite different. If you like British comedies then I highly recommend this one for you, but you do need to be able to appreciate off-color ridiculousness. – BETHANY

Many of you will be wearing similar expressions whilst watching this.
Nice, er, cover-up (that covers up nothing).
I have much to teach you, young padawan.
I’d hesitate to eat a doughnut from this guy’s office.
Don’t ask. Seriously.
