Brian Pickles (Brian Berke) is an unsuccessful stand up comedian who
can't even attract a crowd (or anyone) out in the streets, and he's
totally porn-obsessed - and obsessed with Mia (Mia Crowe), the clerk at
his favourite pornshop. Thing is, she thinks he's a total loser (and is
probably right) ... until, that is, Brian finds the gateway to pornstar
Ron Jeremy's mind (through a videoboot at the pornshop actually), and as
Ron Jeremy Mia can suddenly accept him as a man, even if Brian can't help
but cumming prematurely.
The downsides ?
Every time Ron Jeremy farts, Brian lands in the next-door dumpster in
the nude. And Ron Jeremy starts having potency problems ... but these
inconveniences are easily outbalanced by the advantages that Brian, a
virtual virgin, is now a pornstar and has finally succeeded in dating the
woman he loves ...
Soon enough, Brian and Mia realize they can exploit the gateway to Ron
Jeremy's mind, and they charge other losers five Dollars for each trip to
Ron's mind - which soon enough wrecks Ron's work, since he continually
ejaculates prematurely (at times before he's even naked) and has serious
potence problems ... and he has to fart a lot, which doesn't rest easy
with his colleagues.
Eventually, Ron finds out what's going on, and to find out what it's
all about, he takes a trip to his own mind ... and finds himself
being reduced to a cock in everyone else's eaes. Furiously he threatens to
sue Brian - but Brian has taken precautions, he takes another trip to
Ron's mind and makes him pop pills so he never farts again - and thus he
thinks he can be Ron Jeremy forever.
As Ron Jeremy, Brian becomes an instant success, not only with the
ladies, but he can also finally launch his career as a stand-up comedian
in packed clubs (because of the celebrity bonus), Mia is going steady with
him (as Ron) now, and life cannot be more beautiful ... until Ron farts,
and Brian is spat out into the dumpster next to the pornshop - but he has
to realize the pornshop has been closed in the meantime, so there is no
way back into Ron Jeremy's mind ... and Brian is reduced to doing his
comedy on the street again, only now he is accused of having stolen his
jokes from Ron Jeremy. Mia in the meantime, who couldn't accept Brian no
longer being in Ron, is arrested for stalking Ron Jeremy, while Ron can
once again do what he does best again (and you know what that is) ...
So ok, this film's idea is shamelessly stolen from Being John
Malkovich, and even the film's title (and its tagline Why be John
Malkovich when you can be Ron Jeremy) does make that clear ... so
don't expect the most original film you have ever seen. That said though, Being
Ron Jeremy - which despite its cast is not a hardcore feature - still
manages at times to be wickedly funny, mainly thanks to Ron Jeremy himself
who despite his iconic status inside the industry doesn't shy away
from making a complete ass of himself - but in a way that you aren't
laughing at him but with him. Of course, the film is mainly based on one
joke, which does run out of steam pretty soon, but then the film is short
enough (no more than 40 minutes) to not outstay its welcome.
Watch it, it may not be great, but it's worth a laugh or two ...
