Totally Busted 2
WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
In the vein of "Candid Camera" and "Punk'd", the Playboy Channel has decided to add a sexy layer to the ol' TV hidden camera scenario by slapping a bunch of naked, horny ladies in front of it, and surprising unsuspecting foolish boys like myself, during job interviews, in the street and beyond. Of course, there's not one hot-blooded male who doesn't go for the nudity that are these women (some of whom are actual porn actresses), but the fun stops before any actual penetration occurs, or...well, someone gets arrested. Lots of woodies ensue.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
I had a feeling that this would be a mixed bag of tricks, but overall, I actually enjoyed most of these hidden camera shenanigans, especially the ones that took place in a "real environment" and didn't go too over the top, like an office assistant being surprised by an actress coming in and showing him her "new boobs" or a guy who thinks he's on a blind date with a girl, who for some reason, decides to change right in front of him, before they even go out! (that's right, she gets naked) It's fun to see these guys' honest reactions, especially when they try to pretend like everything is cool, even when a girl is asking them to touch her breasts in order to learn how to "give a breast exam". The acting by some of the chicks could certainly have been improved, but then again, as soon as their shirts came off, I can't imagine that any of that mattered to the "marks" being punk'd.
The bits that didn't work so much for me were stuff that featured a dominatrix and "slave" on the streets (is anybody really gonna buy that?) as well as any sketch that included porn "actress" Mary Carey, who was just way over-the-top for anyone to take seriously. In one of her sketches, she's supposed to pretend to be the new "fiance" to a few different guys and their unsuspecting parents, and she just goes way too far, to the point that you can't really buy into it. That said...the lady's hot. Natch! The stuff with JACKASS's Steve-O was also stupid-lame (he shows his penis many a time, woo-hoo!), to the point that I just forwarded his shit. So he's cooking a pizza on top of a naked girl...hardee-har-har??? But overall, most of these sketches are fun to watch, and actually don't mind going overboard with lots of nudity (although no P), tons of boobies and many an uncomfortable situation. Oh, there's also a lot of swearing and talk about f*cking, dildos and the like, so take the kiddies to Chuck-E-Cheese before you slap this one into your DVD player. Good times.
Not much in terms of extras save for a photo gallery, which is really just 10 screencaps from the episodes, trailers for a number of other Playboy related DVDs (The Girls of McDonald's, Women of Fear Factor, etc...) and a 5-minute Behind-the-Scenes featurette, which isn't really all that. It basically just explains the premise of the show and intercuts that with a bunch of small clips from many of the episodes, and people getting busted. Where's my friggin' bloopers and people getting pissed off, man?
A fun, sexy show for anyone who doesn't mind people talking about c*cks, f*cking and the like for 90 minutes, and anyone who likes watching other people squirm in uncomfortable situations. I enjoyed the majority of these pranks, particularly the ones that were based more in "reality", but could have done without some of the over-the-top stuff. That said, it's friggin' Playboy, so you can't really go wrong. The extras, on the other hand, are present, but not really accounted for.
