Producers: Ash, Chris Hanley, David Hillary
Juliette Marquis as Moon
James Woods as Pops
Kip Pardue as Kip
I would have liked to have seen more realistic moments like that though (the scene in the AIDS clinic was also very well done), instead of the father's birthday party or "theories" from many of her friends. All of the actors were also very good including the lead Milla Jovovich lookalike, Juliette Marquis, who for her first starring role, handled herself quite admirably (and I'm not just talking about the scene in which she's getting doggied and talking to the camera at the same time...now that's talent!!) and Kip Pardue, who despite winkingly playing a "Hollywood movie actor named Kip" in the film, was actually quite natural and well-rounded. More with him and the lead would also have been nice. Tomas Arana was also great as the sleazy porn operation owner (aren't they all?), and even provided his character with some depth, not just a one-dimensional portrayal of an a-hole. Rosario Dawson and Isaiah Washington had small cameos in the film as well, while real-life porn actress Cheyenne also tossed a few lines into the mix (shucks...no blowjobs though) In the end, the film is really more of a "slice of life" than anything, with very little direction or meaning, but for what it was, especially in terms of its subject matter and performances (Marquis will surely go places after this), it did an okay job of providing a tinge of insight into the industry, as well as plenty of sex, T&A (yes, even penises, boys and girls) and attention-grabbing scenarious. Oh yeah, I have to admit that it also spit out a few memorable pieces of dialogue like "Women need a reason to cheat while men need a reason not to!" and my personal favorite from the lead porn actress herself, when asked about her favorite position: "A 68. That's when you go down on me and I owe you one." Nice! You're on!!
