Decent parody, good enough for a look December 10, 2013
A while ago I watched all of Scrubs – nine seasons, I think – in the course of a couple of months. It wasn’t reently enough that I remember every detail, but I do remember enough to know that Lee Roy Myers is good at making them quickly and with, if not finesse, at least with a certain amount of respect for the original material. His movies are somewhere between fond, faithful reminiscences and the sort of cranked-out cheapies that give porn parody a bad name. I’ve watched three or four Myers movies in a short period of time, and he seems to have a knack for the likeable, middling-funny comedy that doesn’t try too hard and therefore succeeds moderately, but more importantly doesn’t fail hard.
One of the advantages, I imagine, of making a parody of a half-hour show is that you have two hours to fool around with, so you can have five 20-minute sex scenes and still have 20 more minutes to cram in all the jokes you want that reference the show, spreading them out over the whole time. Scrubs does just that, hitting all the notes with familiar characters and catchphrases that will ring true for people familiar with the source material. You also benefit from the goodwill built up over (in this case) nine seasons, so that your porn characters automatically start out with some emotional resonance – the friendship between JD and Turk, for instance, as well as other characters’ relationships. I don’t love James Deen as much as everyone seems to, so for me he kind of takes away from the good memories I still have of the show, but since Scrubs XXX started off in the black, it’s okay.
The sex is all pretty workaday, nothing really special, but nothing subpar, either. None of the female characters looks enough like the ones fromt eh show to really get my motor running on that count, and none of them is especially super hot on her own, but they’re all decent porn hotties. It’s worth a look.
