You’d think a peek at the porn business made by industry insiders would be informative, or at least arousing. But this almost apologetic look at the skin biz tries, unconvincingly, to make it look downright cuddly. It’s also dull as dirt. It centers on Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw), an 18-year-old blonde dial tone who moves from LA to San Francisco, starts posing for nude stills, drifts into girl-girl movies and finally graduates (term used loosely) to full-on boy-girl fucking on film (sorry, it’s the best word), then righteously defends it with “it’s just my job.” Don’t be thinking Boogie Nights.
