Hey, Let's Put on A Show!!

I saw the trailer to this movie on a list of movies about movies (man, I love a list...) and knew it was something I had to see.  The Amateurs is about group of sweet but kinda losery guys who decide their way to fame and fortune is to make the world's first feature-length amateur porn film.

I'm not going to lie, it lags a little in the first half.  The performances are great, and there are some interesting, even important points made about the porn industry (the pervasiveness of racist attitudes and stereotypes about the prowess and appetites of black men, for example) but it's a little slow in places.  

Stick with it, though, because the last half hour or so makes the whole thing worth it.  Seriously, it's's great.  It totals made my day, and I totals recommend it!
