The gay adult film industry is the backdrop for this drama focusing on Sean (Michael Cunio), a young gay man who is looking for a job in the movie business. While trying to rent a video of Citizen Kane, Sean accidentally brings home a video from Men of Janus Productions, an outfit that churns out hardcore porn movies with exclusively male casts, finding himself infatuated with Johnny Rebel (Scott Gurney), the film's hunky leading man. Sean lands a job with Men of Janus helping out the camera crew, but he soon finds himself serving a different function on the set -- he becomes the "fluffer," who helps the actors "warm up" for their sex scenes. Sean is more than happy to be working with Johnny, but he soon makes the surprising discovery that Johnny is straight and only appears in gay porn because he can make more money than in heterosexual sex films. What's more, Sean learns Johnny has a girlfriend, Babylon (Roxanne Day), who works as an exotic dancer and is not enthusiastic about her lover's current career. The Fluffer was written and co-directed by Wash West, who previously shot and directed several hardcore gay films himself. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

lame lame lame. it's not a comedy. it's barely a drama. it doesn't really know what it is, except perhaps a character study of people who really don't like themselves, and land work in the sex industry.

there's a few flashes of skin; totally tame by today's standards. there's a little bit of the insider's view of the MM porn industry, but that's dated and has been out-done by now.

the film threw out a lot of red herrings- stuff that might seem like major plot drivers but which turn out to be secondary to the main guy's obsessive crush on a porn star who's in the process of washing himself down the drain.
