Johnny Rebel is the stuff dreams are made of: a chiseled Adonis and the biggest star in gay porn, even though he is straight. The fact that he's "gay-for-pay" matters little to Julie, his lap-dancer girlfriend who dreams of having his children. It matters even less to Johnny himself, who lives for the money, the drugs and the attention...from both women and men. But for Sean, a young filmmaker whose obsession with Johnny Rebel leads him to become his cameraman, and then his "fluffer," Johnny's slippery sexuality is a source of both frustration and intense desire. In Los Angeles, the city of dreams, you should watch what you wish for.
This was not one of the best gay movie dramas out there. It is decent though. The story is just what happens to a person, if they become in love or obsessed with a gay porn star. Who in the hell would be that stupid? It is taking place in LA where morals barely exist, and everyone is looking to be known and famous. Sean wants to be working in the real movies, but he ended up working in the porn industry. A lot of people start out working behind the scenes in the porn industry just to get started working in "movies".
You really do not like any of the characters in this movie at all. They are all pretty sleazy and trashy. Sean was the only decent character in the whole movie, but that did not last long at all. He become corrupted by the porn industry, but not as bad as the rest of them. Johnny is just a sleazy hot straight guy with a large penis that works in gay porn, because he is also a drug addict that cannot be trusted. His girlfriend is a stripper. They both work in the adult industry, so they understand one another better. They all suck in this movie. Most of the characters are users of some sort, whether people or drugs.
The movie is worth watching maybe once, but I do not know about any more than that. This movie was just another indie gay movie with a simple story. The movie is filled with real porn stars in the movie. I did not list them all about, but if you watch the movie you will see them. The best part of the movie is that Debbie Harry is in the movie for like five seconds. Enjoy.
