Product Description

I Want Candy follows two hopeful Lads From Leatherhead trying to break into the movies who stumble upon the opportunity of a lifetime. Frustrated by their arty film teacher (Mackenzie Crook), wannabe producer Joe (Tom Riley) and his talented but neurotic director friend Baggy (Tom Burke) head to London to sell what they know is a script made of gold.

Encountering nothing but closed doors, their luck changes when an equally desperate producer (Eddie Marsan) is willing to throw some money at them provided they nab the star he needs. There's just one problem - hewants Candy Fiveways (Carmen Electra), the World's No 1 Adult Star...

Against all odds they manage to secure her services, but it's not long before trouble heads their way. Making a ground breaking graduation film, complete with scenes of an Adult nature, in your parents' house was never going to be easy. I Want Candy follows Joe and Baggy's exploits in pursuit of their dreams but dreams have a funny way of working out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good... 29 Jan 2013
By Kelly89
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I won't lie - I bought this film for the fact it starred Tom Burke and I fully expected it to suck, bar his performance. Truth was, I actually enjoyed the film. It's quotable, kind of funny, not too full of gratuitous nudity and has a few stars in it you'll recognise and love. So, if you're looking for something you don't need to concentrate on and want to be able to have a giggle then go for this. If you're looking for porn in the higher power, this isn't it and neither is this where you should be if you're looking for a masterpiece.

In short? Easy to watch, easy to get and simple comedy with a good-looking cast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny film 21 Nov 2008
This has a lot of good laughs in it, it's a mix between a situation comedy and the background behind an "arty" sex film made by students who end up owing some sleazy gangsters.

It has a lot of good moments in it and some excellent lines. It's a good film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nearly very funny 22 April 2008
By Scott
I Want Candy is an odd film. The idea is very funny, the script is loaded with amusing set pieces, the acting is ok, it's even reasonably well paced, but somewhere along the line it managed to not be very funny. It's hard to see exactly what went wrong with it, but it's almost as if the crew were told they only had 2 weeks to shoot the whole thing and therefore didn't ever get to do a second take when the first one was bad. There are so many amusing situations that didn't succeed in making me laugh. A joke is set up, but then the timing of the punchline seemed to be a bit off too many times.
On the plus side, Michelle Ryan was much better than I expected, as was Carmen Electra but both of them were a little underused. The two leads were competent but neither of their characters had a consistent personality, and although that shouldn't matter too much in what is meant to be a silly comedy, it left me thinking that this could have been absolutely brilliant in the right hands. It's not really that bad, but it seems like a really wasted opportunity to make a hilarious comedy.

2.0 out of 5 stars charimng...sweet...but not that funny 10 Aug 2007
Two film students head to London with their script which they believe will be the first step to Hollywood, they hook up with a dodgy film producer who agrees to finance the film, provided they can get porns hottest star Candy Fiveways (Carmen Electra).

I Want Candy' it must be said is quite a sweet and charming film in a 'The Full Monty' kind of way, sadly though unlike that film, the laughs are few and far between it must be said, I think I went a full hour before a proper laugh, a very amusing scene that all I shall say "required wet wipes"!

The only selling point this film would seem to have is the chance for men to see Carmen Elektra in various sexy outfits and states of undress, something I'm sure you could see say in a Playboy dvd, if she has one that is, not that'd I'd know about that sort of thing!

Lightweight fluff all in all with a serious lack of laughs I'm afraid.

According to pretty much all the reviews below, hardly anyone enjoyed I Want Candy, which is very strange because when I saw it at the cinema I thoroughly enjoyed it and bought it straight away when it was released on DVD. My parents even watched it (when I wasn't with them thankfully) and found it hilarious. All I could hear was loud laughter coming from the living room. Okay, so the plot might Not be incredibly believeable, but what films are. Most of them we see are just plain good fun, and this goes especially for I Want Candy. There is some really good British talent in this movie and some very funny scenes. It's well scripted and the scenarios the two leads get themselves into are just outrageous. Maybe it's because I'm only 15, but for those of you who want a fun, laugh out loud comedy then I Want Candy is well worth a look.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not good 24 Aug 2008
By Eolake
Sorry, I just did not like this film. Every turn in the script was totally unbelievable, and it was not very funny.

Maybe some will like it. Put it this way: if you think that somebody eating toast with pubic hair in the butter is hilarious, and if are not bothered by the logic of two guys apparently believing that combining their epic love story film script with a porn movie will get them into Hollywood, then you'll like this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny film 23 April 2008
By J. Webb
i first saw this on sky. I loved it, and now im buying the DVD.

It seems to me the only people who give this film a bad review, is because they was actually hoping for a porn movie, rather than a comedy. And the story line is too simple.

A comedy doesnt have to make you laugh every new minute. Just fun, entertaining, good too watch, one to see again.
