A cabal of conservative over-priviligeds operate in secret to remove dicks and female orgasms from Hollywood releases. Kirby Dick hires a private dick to find out who these secretive MPAA board members are, using the increasingly tiresome stalking approach of Michael Moore and channeling Morgan Spurlock throughout. Unsurprisingly, Dick's own film garners an NC-17, because he points out that the MPAA is actually a whore of the big studios which targets small independent films with more enthusiasm than necessary. Dick's shocking revelation that Protestant and Catholic clergy are involved in the process is a mere jolt of nine volt caliber.
An interesting doc, but I'd rather Werner Herzog had made it.
