Porn Star -- The Legend of Ron Jeremy


Aargh, what an awful movie. It's not like we expected this would be a Dworkin-esque lambasting of either Jeremy or the adult industry, but the entire runtime is nuthin' but a PSA for how darn charming and fantastic Ron is. Sure, we'll admit that as dudes ourselves it's pretty neato that another hairy fat dude is still earnin' a living boning the young ladies, but shouldn't a documentary tell you more than that? Shouldn't it reveal something...well, human about its subject? That Ron Jeremy is, we dunno, a sleazebag? That someone other than super scummy Al Goldstein should say something bad about him? Didn't you see that Annabel Chong movie? The one where they show the clip of Ron doin' a double anal and emceeing the World's Biggest Gangbang? Kinda gross, right? Not so charming anymore, is he? Porn Star avoids mentioning anything even remotely dark or brooding about the Hedgehog and instead perpetuates the false notion that pornography is innocent mustached Boogie Nights wakka-chikka self-expression.
