Banal, Disappointing, Slow

See it if Saw this during previews at the Abrams Arts Center. Very tame take on the Porn industry tho insiders could appreciate some of the research.

Don't see it if If U r expecting a lot of nudity, U came to the wrong porn show. If U like a bawdy song or two then U might get your money's worth.
