Continuing the flights and fancies of the singlemost punch ‘em-out-worthy set of yuppies since the advent of the BMW, the second episode in this adult mini-series centers on a $1,000 bet between Ron Jeremy and Paul Thomas. Jeremy, as the terminally obnoxious Sal Iococca, TV station manager and part-time art entrepreneur, bets Thomas he can take an unknown with no talent and promote him or her to the upper echelons of the art world. Jeremy, who’s too close to real life here, even to the point of stiffing Thomas for the lunch check, convinces Alicia Monet she can use her ass as a paint brush and sell major league paintings. The production suffers from major sound and lighting inconsistencies (a good scene between Monet and Hunter is squandered), and too many art “rap” sound bites turn this feature to crayons. The sex is average, but the packaging is lovely.
