"Tight" DVD (director: Shaun Donnelly)

This faux-documentary highlights a "band" (called Tight) formed entirely by current and former porn stars. Managed by Charlie Sheen "goddess" Bree Olson (who, by the way, is one of the worst actresses here), these 4 girls strike out as rockers, and this reality-TV-style documentary presents their tour of mostly small bars and back alley dives.

Along the way, we get to see sexy backstage antics (sometimes with male fans taking part), onstage music (not likely to get these girls a recording contract anytime soon), plenty of catty interviews, and in-band fighting. It's all very voyeuristic, staged, and...somehow, oddly alluring. Perhaps this is the epitome of "trash cinema", and although I can't endorse anything here as essential or truly worthwhile, I found it all a good bit of guilty pleasure.
