  • He may be something of a punch line nowadays, but Hugh Hefner was once a genuine force for social change, and this lively, candid doc reclaims the controversial and charming magazine and lifestyle mogul as a piece of living history.

    Far more than boobs and bunny tails Hefner has made a significant sociopolitical contribution to America. An education - I highly recommend it.
