    Set during disco`s heyday, Boogie Nights is a dark, hilarious and hysterical expose of the pornography industry as seen from the inside.

    Eddie (Mark Wahlberg) is a 17-year old busboy looking for a break when he is spotted in a disco by veteran porn director Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds). Jack immediately senses that the virile and well-endowed young man can make him very very rich. Lead by Jack into the wickedly glamorous realm of porn movies, Eddie emerges as Dirk Diggler, the superstar who`s always pleased to see you...

    Brilliant and totally original film. If you haven`t seen it yet then do so quickly... however, don`t buy this disc!

    The only feature is about 8 REALLY short, badly edited and pointless interviews with the main cast and director, and instead of a little blip in the picture during a layer change, a lot of the time it freezes completely so you have to eject the disc and load it again while fast forwarding through the track mark... and of course the movie was made by New Line Cinema, causing that annoying compulsary wait through the copywright warning screen. It just completely ruins you enjoyment of the film so I`ve opted for giving the R2 disc to anyone who`ll have it and ordering the far superior R1 disc!
