To anyone familiar with making an adult film, The Amateurs is just silly - and therein lies its charm. It's the perfect image of how Middle America thinks it could make a porn movie if it wanted to. It stars Jeff Bridges as the town loser who first broaches the idea of doing an amateur hardcore feature film (!) using all local talent, including the girl who works at the local bed store (Judy Greer), a waitress at McDonald's (Melinda Dahl) and a local stripper who used to babysit his brother (Valerie Perrine).

Of course, everything goes wrong. The three black guys they hire to fuck the waitress all turn out to have small dicks, so the scene has to be cancelled (but they want to get paid for it anyway); a local floozy (Glenne Headly) agrees to do a solo, but her boyfriend asks that the footage not be used ... yet somehow, the film is finished ... then destroyed by the waitress's ex-con boyfriend. Ah, well.

Retailing: This amusing take on amateur porn is worth stocking in your mainstream section.
