Low budget films can be hard to do at a level of quality that can live up to the big studio releases. The Asylum has made a cottage industry out of knocking off big name releases. In some cases, these film are good fun, and others are misses. But those are the odds with studio releases as well.
“Sex Pot” diverges from the big-budget rip-off to tell as relatively low-budget story of a couple guys trying to get high and get laid. Basically the plot of any given Cheech & Chong movie.
The story, if you can call it that, follows two clueless stoners who get their hands on magical marijuana that gets the smoker all hot and horny. They strike out to go to a party and reap the benefits of the sex pot but fall into a series of misadventures along the way.
“Sex Pot” is the kind of film that dares to ask which prostitutes have penises and how foul a hot chick’s bowel movement is… and whether a horny guy could still want to have sex with her if she didn’t wipe.
If you like that sort of humor and contemplation, “Sex Pot” is right up your ally. It’s cast is brimming with hot chicks – ranging from “serious” actresses to nude models (like Christine Nguyen) to full-on porno stars (like Rebecca Blue… and don’t ask me how I know this).
I will give the movie credit. It delivers in the departments that you’d expect. There’s plenty of bare breasts and a fair amount of girl-on-girl make-out action. It also has its gross-out moments (like the aforementioned bowel movement scene), but the movie serves to titillate the horny teenage boy rather than entice the gorehound.
“Sex Pot” comes with a behind-the-scenes featurette “Bonds of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apotcalypse,” talking about how the film is in 3D, which is news to anyone watching it. The production problems make sense when the crew and braintrust keep professing their love of the bud, though. Additional features include bloopers and trailers.
I can’t say this is a great film, but it fits the mold and is unashamed of this. For that matter, I have a twisted amount of respect for it.
