Movie Info

This film is a unique combination of documentary, drama and comedy, and uses real people as well as professional actors to chronicle the experiences of Dirk Shafer who in 1992, was voted Playgirl magazine's man of the year. For the athletic, blond and extremely photogenic Shafer this fame was a double-edged sword. On one hand, he really needed the money; on the other, he had just come out of the closet. Still he went for the gusto and spent much of the year touring about and getting interviewed

This original but ultimately unsuccessful serio-comic look at Dirk Shafer, Playgirl's 1992 centerfold, served as closing night of the 1996 Outfest, and some gay viewers may like it.

How the director of Wag the Dog and his Good Morning Vietnam star Robin Williams ended up in this fine mess is anyone's guess.

...half unfunny comedy and half uncompelling drama.
