Critic Reviews for Naked Ambition: An R Rated Look at an X Rated Industry

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

An entertaining, adeptly crafted documentary that treats its provocative subject matter with refreshing respect.

Top Critic

In contrast with Grecco's evocative photos, his film is scattered and platitudinous, skimming the surface of his subjects and betraying his high-art aspirations with a shallow E! aesthetic.

All the naked people on display here are certainly easy on the eyes, but it's not much of a stretch to say that, as usual in Hollywood, the book is better than the movie.

It's less a documentary than a promotional video for [director Michael Grecco's] book...

There's plenty of nudity, famous porn faces (don't worry, Ron Jeremy shows up), and a few respectable stories, but an overall arc of an idea with all this siliconed commotion? It never arrives.

As a look inside the porn industry itself, it barely scratches the surface.

Audience Reviews for Naked Ambition: An R Rated Look at an X Rated Industry

½

I'm sure the photography book would be interesting to look at (and you get to see much of it in the film), but I wouldn't really call this "behind-the-scenes". It doesn't get in-depth at all.
