Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An entertaining, adeptly crafted documentary that treats its provocative subject matter with refreshing respect."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"It's less a documentary than a promotional video for [director Michael Grecco's] book..."
‑ Sean Axmaker,
"Whether Grecco, with his awestruck, sycophantic narrative style is really just doing this all tongue-in-cheek or itā(TM)s a legitimate attempt to get inside the industry is debatableā"but, for as far as it goes, it works."
‑ Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine
"In contrast with Grecco's evocative photos, his film is scattered and platitudinous, skimming the surface of his subjects and betraying his high-art aspirations with a shallow E! aesthetic."
‑ Andrew Barker, Variety
"There's plenty of nudity, famous porn faces (don't worry, Ron Jeremy shows up), and a few respectable stories, but an overall arc of an idea with all this siliconed commotion? It never arrives."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"[Director Michael] Grecco comes across as a naive, wide-eyed kid in Wonderland, which might be sweet if it wasn't so obvious his real motivation is to make the audience feel good about buying his book."
‑ Geoff Berkshire,
"All the naked people on display here are certainly easy on the eyes, but it's not much of a stretch to say that, as usual in Hollywood, the book is better than the movie."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"As a look inside the porn industry itself, it barely scratches the surface."
‑ Bill Gibron,
