You knew the hand held genre had to go there eventually. A porno site called "Lucky Bastard" gives away free sex with a porn star to some lucky subscriber. Josh (Lee Kholafai) a geek , wins sex with Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue). Unfortunately he creeps her out and then pops the cork too soon leading to a dissatisfied Lucky Bastard who doesn't want this to air...at all costs.

The film has male organs pixilated out at times. The sex is pixilated out also. There is full frontal nudity as well as very pornographic language. The script was fairly decent as it showed that people in the adult film industry have real names and an off screen persona. The acting was also pretty good with Betsy Rue getting five stars.

Interesting characters stuck in failed thriller April 26 2015
By Joe Smart - Published on Amazon.com
The words "found footage horror" are usually enough to send dread through my entire body before I even begin watching the movie--but not for the right reasons. Found footage horror movies usually offer bad production values, crummy acting, lousy dialogue that frequently seems improvised Blair Witch style, and enough shaky camera work to bring back memories of the days when I had a drinking problem. Found footage horror movies are, more often than not, lazy garbage by people with limited talent and resources, the kind of horror film pretty much any idiot can make.

Lucky Bastard turns out to be very few of those things. Since the found footage comes from a slick pornographic web site the film has a surprisingly polished look with very little shaky-can work. The dialogue is clearly written rather than improvised and is often sharp and funny. The actors can actually act--shockingly well. The characters are interesting and the writing and direction have a surprising energy and snap that gets Lucky Bastard off to a very promising start.

The story is about a reluctant internet porn star named Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue) who, against her better judgement, accepts money to appear in a scene on the Lucky Bastard website. The gimmick behind Lucky Bastard is that some regular schmo who subscribes to the site gets chosen to screw one of the porn stars--although it generally turns into a humiliating experience for the schmoes who tend to have performance problems and get mocked on the site. Ashley isn't keen on the idea of working with an amateur or dealing with some dude getting mocked because he can't get it up or comes too fast but the money is good and she has kids and bills and is a single mom so she goes for it.

Once the lucky bastard named Dave G. (Jay Paulson) shows up and they eat in a restaurant prior to the main event Ashley gets a creepy stalker vibe from the dude and freaks out, threatening to leave even though a location has been reserved and paid for by Mike (Don McManus), the middle-aged, bearded man who runs the Lucky Bastard website among others and also serves as the on camera MC. It seems Dave G. called Ashley by her real, non-porn name and also knew the names of her kids which is information he shouldn't have unless he is a creep stalker.

Dave comes up with an explanation and apologizes to Ashley and the shoot is back on. The location is an empty house outfitted with cameras in each room because it was used to film a reality TV show and the producers left the equipment behind. Ashley's initial instincts about Dave turn out to be valid when he comes the second she touches him and he doesn't take being mocked by the crew or their boss very well.

Lucky Bastard feels knowledgeable about the porn industry in the internet age and is initially fun and entertaining. There's a lack of judgement about the profession and a shared camaraderie among the workers that recalls 2012's Starlet and the first half of Boogie Nights. Unfortunately where Lucky Bastard ultimately stumbles is as a thriller--cowriter/director Robert Nathan has interesting characters and a talented cast but no good ideas for how to use them when things turn bad and the movie is actually supposed to start generating suspense. When Lucky Bastard finally shifts gears into thriller mode it's a complete failure consisting of little more than the enraged Dave G. killing the characters one after another with nobody doing much of anything to fight back or try to hide or escape--once the murders start Lucky Bastard becomes repetitive and dull very quickly.

While Lucky Bastard definitely has things going for it the filmmakers don't seem to have any idea how to make a thriller and don't succeed in generating even the tiniest amount of suspense--there's clearly talent involved with Lucky Bastard both in front and behind the camera but it's still a movie that is impossible to recommend.

Way better than expected. July 3 2014
By MG Mas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I wasn't expecting much knowing that it was NC-17 and another found-footage film, but I was really surprised to see such an original and refreshing take on the style. The movie made some really interesting points about society's views towards sexuality and violence and certainly wasn't tasteless as you would expect from an NC-17 movie - definitely worth a watch.

Crazy as well as adulterated. June 20 2014
By Thomas E. Scott - Published on Amazon.com

The movie starts of as if two female porn stars are getting butt raped by a big muscular dude and one holding the camera. It looks real and shocking at first until you find out soon that it was all part of the show. A sleazy porn director comes up with weird idea. To find the biggest loser to win a shot in one of his movies to sleep with the most famous and experienced porn star. The project is called, "Lucky Bastard". The find the person to do the job, but the directors, producers, and actresses start noticing some strange behavior with the dude. When time came for him to perform and like any other inexperienced first timer, he failed miserably. He is shocked at first, but realized that they video taped them and now it is going to be spread over the internet. Scared, embarrassed, and pissed off. The Lucky Bastard goes back to the studio to stop them from releasing the tape before it gets distributed. But even though he was on a mission, once he gets back into the studio, he has more in mind for the pornographers than just stopping the feed. And it isn't pretty.

This moving really impressed me. I thought it was one of these shows where they have bad acting, bad picture, bad everything. Imagine my surprise when I found out, the actors knew how to act, and how thrilling the show was. It also tell true stories about the porn industry and why it is really not good career choice. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys cleaning up the dirt in the porn industry only to watch it fall.

UNLUCKY Oct. 20 2014

Entertaining movie. Starts out rather slowly, but picks up.
You may or may not like it depending upon your tastes.
The acting was OK but not great. Would have been
better with more well-known actors.
