Movie Summary

Director:
Keith Bearden
Released:
2011
Rating:
R
In this irreverent comedy, awkward teenager Tobe (Dustin Ingram) sets off on a road trip to meet Monica Velour (Kim Cattrall of TV's SEX & THE CITY), his favorite '80s porn star, at a rare live appearance hundreds of miles away. Instead of the glamorous sexpot portrayed on film, he finds a 49-year-old single mom living in a trailer in rural Indiana, performing at seedy strip clubs to make ends meet. A starry-eyed Tobe, still captivated by his crush, befriends Monica, further complicating her difficult life. Kim Cattrall gives a career-defining performance in this offbeat love story, brought to you by the producers of The Kids Are All Right and Garden State, that appeals to the dreamer - and the nerd - in all of us.
