Is this the first movie made in 2013 that I’m reviewing? Dammit, it is. Figures that it’d be a porn parody, since that’s where I get all my traffic from anyway. My mom would be so proud of me. Hold on, let me call her up. Ring ring hello this is pretend phone call to your mom, she says she doesn’t want to know. Hm okay I’ll call back later when I’m on a phone I guess.

Well, it’s Clerks, except all the characters are women and they work in a porn store instead of a convenience store. The main character hates her job and she always seems to date guys who are either pigs or have sex with more men than she has. Eventually she realizes that her lesbian friend and co-cashier is really the one for her.

Yes, it’s a sex-driven plot. Because it’s PORN. Yet, it manages to hit a couple funny moments, and the overall story arc for the main character is surprisingly well-developed and even somewhat touching, if you try to pretend it wasn’t manufactured just for the sake of a lesbian sex scene. It doesn’t have the same writing chops as the film it’s “parodying,” and while that seems an obvious thing to say, that’s really all that Clerks has going for it, so it’s especially noticeable. They do try, don’t get me wrong, and it’s good enough for what it is, easily. I’m just trying to stick with my whole shtick of reviewing these things as actual films.
