Tobe Hulbert s life sucks. He s a recent high-school graduate living in Washington with his grandfather. He works out of a vintage hot dog truck, and his only friend is his overweight 12-year-old neighbour. In the dog-days of summer, his only escape is obsessively watching videos of his fantasy girl: Monica Velour, the most famous adult-film star of the 1980s.
Browsing her fansite one afternoon, Tobe discovers that Monica is making a rare live appearance at a strip club in rural Indiana. With nothing stopping him, he hits the road to meet the woman of his dreams. Expecting his fantasy, Tobe is instead confronted with a harsh reality: Monica is a 49-year-old mom who lives in a trailer park, and her life is nothing like he imagined it would be. The last thing Monica needs is another complication in her life, but Tobe is determined to do whatever it takes to get close to her.

The opening titles do a great job of setting the scene and mood of the movie detailing Monica’ past through a collage of news reels, film covers and other media, before cutting to the main focus of the film and you’re into the main story within 20 minutes. This isn’t the outright comedy the blurb suggests as it can be quite painful, sad and thought provoking as the stark reality kicks in, being more a dark sit-com in places. Kim Cattrall excels as the ageing star who realises her beauty has faded and bravely avoids her usual make-up and a far cry from her role in ‘Porky’s’, while Ingram is perfect as the besotted nerd.
The single disc loads to a basic main menu offering just play, scene selection and trailer. Rated 15 this features some topless dancing, the F word and some adult themes including an adult video store, strip club, masturbation, prostitution, drug taking and drunkenness, but nothing graphic [other than an old mans backside] but always avoids being smutty. A good quirky 30s soundtrack, some great autumnal scenes contrasting with the bleak settings and a tale of two dysfunctional people striking up an unlikely friendship. It’s a movie with heart, but avoids being overly sentimental, with a good mix of humour balancing out the bleakness, but above all it’s about the clash between fantasy and reality. A must for Cattrall fans and anyone who likes a ‘kitchen sink’ drama and a good twist ending.

Arrived when expected with no fuss or hassle. Film itself is not a must see but still good value for the price. Would use this service again - no problem.Published on 27 Feb. 2012 by col
