Hookers, Inc (Cinema Epoch DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C     Extras: C-     Feature: C-



In what feels like a contest where everyone loses, Tim Pingel’s Hookers, Inc. seems like yet another loser in a contest to do a story about XXX production and backfires badly.  Not as funny as Zack & Miri Make A Porno and not even as clever as the likes of Slippery Slope (both reviewed elsewhere on this site), this taped production (set in many cheap inside locations with only some outdoor Hollywood footage) tells the boring story of how three prostitutes get involved in taping themselves sin action for profit.


Hardly a step up, they meet the same unlikable guys they would if they stayed with the oldest profession in the world and the three actresses picked to be the title characters are only so memorable or attractive.  Besides every cliché you can imagine, this just never works and except for a few minor chuckles if that, this is one corporation that should fold.


The letterboxed 1.78 X 1 image is pale and detail challenged throughout, though outdoor shots (day or night) tend to reproduce better.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is barely stereo and has some location audio issues.  Extras include an audio commentary, outtakes, deleted scenes, a Heidi Fleiss party and brief behind the scenes featurette.
