Rise to the Occasion.
Down-and-out divorcee andy sargentee (jeff bridges), with the help of his five motley friends, brainstorms a genius idea to make their dreams come true. They are going to rally their small town to produce an amateur adult film!

"You'll notice that the actors are way overqualified for this nonsense. But the kick they get out of one another is what pulls you in.  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"...[the film clicks] when capturing the silliness of XXX concerns, especially in script-development scenes.  Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

Editor's Note
In the vein of CALENDAR GIRLS and THE FULL MONTY, this charming comedy depicts an unlikely group of pornographers led by Andy Sargentee (Jeff Bridges). He spearheads the efforts of an entire town to raise a fortune through pornography.

3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] freaky fable....You'll notice that the actors are way overqualified for this nonsense. But the kick they get out of one another is what pulls you in." 09/21/2006 p.98

Rolling Stone 8 of 10
It would be easy as hell to tell you what a comic shambles The Amateurs is, but I had too good a time to let it bother me. Writer-director Michael Traeger sets his freaky fable in Butterface Fields, a small American town (pop. 3,149) that could pass for Mayberry if the menfolk there decided to pass the time by making a porn flick...You'll notice that the actors are way overqualified for this nonsense. But the kick they get out of one another is what pulls you in. Traeger's script does more than strain credulity, it administers multiple fractures. Still, it's hard not to laugh when the boys decide their film needs "carpet munching, black men with elephant dicks and a half-dozen guys unloading on a gal until she looks like a melted candle." You won't be surprised to learn that they fall far short of their goals...Though The Amateurs talks a kinky game about "the big porno weenie," it's no more shocking than The Full Monty or other pop entertainments your Aunt Bee can see without a blindfold. As Andy re-arranges his film into something to make the town and his son (Alex D. Linz) proud, visions of a spin on It's a Wonderful Life with babes who, in the words of Some Idiot, "get boned and give head," go out the window. You may expect group sex, but what you get is a group hug. - Peter Travers
