My rating: 7/10
Will I watch it again? Nah.
To me, Ron Jeremy comes across as a really funny and fun-loving guy who is eager and professional. This documentary confirms that. To look at him, you'd never know he's probably the most famous male porn star second only to John Holmes. He's not the physical model of what you'd expect from a porn actor. He's got lots of personality but that alone won't get you very far into the industry. Personality and a 10 inch dick that can cum on cue is what will get you a lasting career in the porn industry. This film covers the major beats from his childhood and early adult career as a special ed teacher (!) to his getting into porn and how he has built a career out of it to be the most known and recognizable porn star today. He's lived long enough to become a living legend. It's a fun film loaded with nudity and laughs. It's a shame that there's such a stigma in the film industry that prevents porn actors to become legitimate actors. Ron Jeremy is an exception but as of 2001 he was still struggling to gain mainstream acceptance.
