    One of the pointless movies of 1997 and many actors were miscast in this movie.

    A very drab and offensive movie. The violence is graphic, there is excessive language and the movie
    has a sleazy feel to it. ..........................

  1. I'm not sure all of this works out as convincingly as Anderson intends in the movie's somewhat unsatisfying ending, but getting there is a wickedly enjoyable journey.
  2. From the second it begins, Boogie Nights seizes your senses and pulls you right in: no turning back, no time for debate, no regrets.
  3. Writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson has perfectly wedded form to function by filming Boogie Nights in a style suggesting the grainy texture of porn and the ambivalence of the era.
