What makes this movie about sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll a bit
different than most of this type is that the sex is explicit, and real,
according to interviews by the cast members. Other than that, it is a very
average rock 'n roll band story.
Lead singer Jimmy Taranto dumps his girlfriend Candy (Amy Cater) and
his band Gutter Filth in one fell swoop convinced that his career will
soar without either one of them. Candy, herself a musician/singer,
auditions for his spot and despite misgivings, the band takes her on.
As one might expect in a rather unimaginative band story, Gutter Filth
rises to stardom while good ole' Jimmy sinks to the bottom of the toilet.
In a final fit of poetic justice, Jimmy tries to re-connect with Candy to
The cast made a big deal out of the fact that they agreed to do real sex
to give the film an air of authenticity and candor. They insist it is not
porn. The problem is that while the sex stuff is fine, the story otherwise
is just boring and extremely predictable. What they wound up with is
musical porn, and nothing more.
