Very funny movie. Based around the 70's adult movie scene. Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, Heather Graham:



I watched it again over the weekend, it's timeless.

Even though there were no aliens in it, I enjoyed it.

I have seen it! Loved the part where Burt Reynolds has Mark Walberg show him his manly parts to see if they are good enough! LOL

I have not seen it. Isn't that the one that's supposed to be about John Holmes? If it is, I heard that Mark Walburg wore a prosthetic. Just sayin.

Little known rumor - Leonardo was initially considering this role, when he instead chose the Titanic production. He was worried about being typecast as a romantic lead and was trying to weigh playing a little more 'troubled' character in his next film.

Fortunately he chose Cameron's movie, which left Wahlberg - the opportunity to resuscitate his film career with Boogie Nights.

I enjoyed it immensely - and yes, Chef...it was loosely based upon Holmes life-story.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

I laughed when I saw that woman (can't remember her name) "mothering" Wahlberg's character in it.

Heather Graham as Rollergirl!

Even bad movies can have redeeming qualities.

It was awful, yet charming at the same time. I think it was deliberately aimed at mocking B movies.

I didn't see it. Movies like that depress me.

No, never saw it. Read about it, but didn't see it.

Movies that remind me how rarely I get any.
