it's no Boogie Nights.

Lackluster outing with a Jerry Springer vibe as the nice girl next door marries a pervy creep who essentially pimps her out, not missing a chance to twirl his moustaches nefariously. These caricatures limit the feature and render the ending a foregone conclusion disappointingly.

Interesting movie based on life of the adult film actress Linda Lovelace and the controversy surrounding her film "Deep Throat." It outlines how she got into the business and how she was badly mistreated behind the scenes. I found this movie very nostalgic because it takes place during the early 1970s which is when I was in high school, the music, clothing styles and cars hearken back to those days.

I did not know that Lovelace's story, especially her involvement with the classic porn film Deep Throat, was such a tragic story of naivety and abuse. Seyfriend entirely disappears behind her wig and make up here, giving a pretty damn convincing performance. The writing and direction could have been a little more stringent, though, making it a somewhat uneven movie. People hoping for big sex scenes will not get much out of it either.

It is good movie to watch

Can you say made-for-tv? Took it out after 20 mins.

Not horrible, but too loud, depressing, and short for us to truly understand Linda Lovelace. There is nothing wrong with showing the realities of women being coerced into pornography and the men who abuse them, but Lovelace doesn't really allow its audience to fully understand and feel for Lovelace, who was killed in a car crash in 2002.

Lovelace captured how cruel and selfish the porn industry can be, and I liked Seyfried's performance, but as a whole it felt a little underwhelming.

The put Linda Lovelace just the way she was! Fantastic.

Absolutely heartbreaking.

Amanda Seyfried is great as always. The true story is disturbing.

It's "Boogie Nights" but with no real character development, no good acting and no story. I mean yes, the true story of Linda Lovelace, but done so briefly and so fast, you don't care. It's really a disaster of a film.

Wow! what a boring movie

Not a great movie, but some great acting moments, especially the more emotional moments portrayed by Amanda Seyfried are touching. Even in the "happy" beginning you can constantly sense some unease in the air, more perceived than actually shown by the movie. I added one star only because of the beautiful acting by Peter Sarsgaard and especially Amanda Seyfried.

Uninteresting and managed to take away any frisson of excitement associated with the film or its history

Quite sad and distressing at times! Surprisingly good movie!

The most interesting thing in this solid biopic is how it shows us one side of Linda Lovelace's life and then subverts it to reveal the real dark truth behind all that we are witnessing, becoming a touching drama about a terribly unlucky woman caught in a very sad life.

It should've been lovely and painful but unfortunately it was just blank.

It was interesting to see how this young girl was seduced and used by a person she trusted but should have known better. It was hard to watch at a couple points. Maybe a lesson to be learned don't blindly trust others without some knowledge of their motivation.
