Movie Info

Tom Riley, Tom Burke, Carmen Electra and Michelle Ryan co-star in British director Stephen Surjik's smutty sex comedy I Want Candy. The picture concerns two film students Baggy (Burke) and Joe (Riley), enrolled at a university in Leatherhead, England. The pair just recently completed a script that they plan to shoot for their graduation thesis, and want to use it to break into the British movie industry. Alas, their professor informs them of a two-minute imposition on the length of the thesis film. Discouraged, Joe and Baggy head off on a trip to London, where they attempt to solicit the interest of producers in the script - but they only succeed in catching the eye of a porn mogul, Doug Perry (Eddie Marsam) who agrees to finance the project if and only if they will turn it into a porno feature and talk ingénue Candy Fiveways (Electra) into starring. Undaunted, the boys set off to locate Candy and convince her to perform in their movie.

  • If you fancy being depressed this weekend, why not pop along to this film about two British blokes making porn?

  • Ropey bit-part actors - this cheerful exploitation of The Full Monty formula still entertains.

  • This is no Full Monty, but like the film-within-a-film, it's got enough creativity and enthusiasm to win young audiences over. And, of course, it's also rather rude.

  • Predictable, derivative, tedious, distasteful, badly written, stupid, insulting to women, insulting to Eastern Europeans, clichéd, woefully directed and woefully acted all round.

    Aug 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Billed as 'The British American Pie', a label applied apparently without irony.

    Nov 3, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A crude, leering, poorly timed farce.

    I watched this as I'm sure I heard it being described as the 'British answer to American Pie' which I'm thinking was an exaggeration. This is a low budget Brit-Com which was really quite funny in parts (there just wasn't enough of them!). Entertaining enough though & the story was good.

    A pretty good English attempt at a teen comedy. Quite similar to The girl next door, Weird Science in idea. Low budget but with a pretty strong cast, it has it share of funny moments. The award ceremony part was filmed across the road from where I live!

    Fine sexy UK comedy of two would-be filmmakers making a porn film with a famous porn actress. So hilarious since <i>Barely Legal</i>. GOD, Cameron Electra looks more sexy in the scenes - WHOOO! And I was surprised by seeing British actress Michelle Ryan (New <i>Bionic Woman</i> TV series) appeared in this movie at the first time I ever saw.

    A suprisingly good british comedy, with just enough bad taste humour to make it interesting!
