    This mildly amusing, resolutely inoffensive outing lacks serious sexual tension -- which might just make it a viable compromise date pick in limited release.
  2. Modestly entertaining film.
  3. 50
    A mildly funny, stereotype-stuffed comedy.
  4. Except for the usual double entendres in which titles of mainstream Hollywood hits are twisted into salacious puns, Finding Bliss (Bliss is the name of the company's resident star) isn't especially funny. Nor is it sexy, despite flashes of nudity and fleeting glimpses of Grind's works in progress.
  5. 25
    It's a big-hearted, well-intentioned disaster.

    Though the story is semi-autobiographical, Davis' judgmental script alternates cheap humor and clich├ęd characterizations with nuggets of faux wisdom about sex, love and film. At least porn doesn't pretend to be something it's not.

    It is particularly painful to watch Sobieski--whose unnervingly symmetrical, Botticelli face and supernatural poise can't help but hold the screen--put through the paces of Davis's almost unbearably labored script.
