I prefer Paul Thomas Anderson's film "Magnolia" to this one, although Heather Graham as 'Rollergirl' will not be a character I'll forget anytime soon...

One of my favorite movies of all time. Hilarious, fantastic acting, slam-dunk social commentary. Stunning "comeback" for Burt Reynolds.

This film is a brilliant portrait of how useless humans are, and the decay they can experience.

One could watch this film mindlessly and attain some degree of satisfaction. I remain on the fence with this one, but am confident to say that their are some funny dialogue, particularly during drug use.

I wouldn't call this film "hilarious". It is funny in parts as life is funny in parts. It is also disturbing in parts as life is disturbing in parts. Overall, an entertaining and thought provoking film. Well acted. Worth a look.

One of my favorite movies of all time. Fantastic soundtrack. Great characters. Darkly humorous as well as emotionally moving and tense at times. Obviously graphic in nature, but not a porn movie.

Often needlessly jumping around between it's large (and hugely talented) cast, Boogie Nights is a great movie about pornography, while not quite being porn itself.
