The Fluffer ★★ 2001

Naive aspiring filmmaker Sean (Cunio) has his romantic illusions destroyed and is rather rudely forced to grow up. Gay Sean gets a job with a Hollywood porn production company and falls for one of the company's stars—the immature and self-destructive gay-for-pay Mikey (Gurney) whose nom-de-porn is Johnny Rebel. Mikey's on a downward slide despite Sean's admiration and the love of his stripper girlfriend Julie (Day) and if the two aren't careful, Mikey will take them with him. Title refers to one of the personal services Sean is expected to offer Mikey. 94m/C VHS, DVD .
