    I'm sorry to opose to all the previous reviewers, but I find this film really bad. Characters are fake, acting is bad, camera is poor, everything sux. So what if chicks can see a big cock at the end?!? That does not make a good movie...

    This movie was horrible. The characters were very two dimensional. The only redeeming part of this movie was being able to see some nice t n' a.

    Quite possibly the most overrated film of all time. I was bored to tears, which is truly unfortunate because I wanted to love this movie, and I tried to love this movie, but it's just boring.

  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.
