20 February 2008 | The_BIGGEST_Critic
| Fun movie with a lot of heart
The Amateurs (formerly known in the USA as The Moguls) is a really fun, nicely directed movie with heart. Slightly odd, quirky characters banding together to make a porno movie, and getting much more in the process.

There were very few stereotypes in this movie (Ernest, played by Troy Brenna was one) and the story was unpredictable and fun to follow. I appreciate that many of the characters, whom you would normally presume are just there as comic relief, really become significant for other reasons. Some scenes were flat out hilarious (Watch Eileen Brennan in the few scenes she's given).

The matter of fact way that the characters approach making their film provides some of the great moments in this movie.

I highly recommend "The Amateurs" because it's just a great way to spend an evening.
