People Had Sex Everywhere
Something a little different to start the week than the grisly stuff from last week.
I guess I have to say this movie was back in the day.
I mean technically it was last century so at this point that is back in the day.
It starred someone who is an A+ list mostly movie actor right now.
Had a franchise and everything.
This movie was one of his bigger bombs of all time.
The thing is though, despite the bad reviews and box office, I bet most of you know the name of the movie.
It went on to bigger things down the road. Anyway, the two big producers on the movie had hundreds and hundreds of extras on this set.
One thing they wanted was to have a good time making this movie.
They built into the budget a party fee.
One of the producers most of you know.
The other one, you know his movies.
Anyway, there only qualification to be hired as an extra was to be an attractive woman and be willing to have sex for free or for money with any member of the cast or crew.
Well, from day one things were out of control.
The producers told these women they would make over a thousand bucks a day.
The women started hitting on guys right away.
With the producers behind the effort and often spending time with four or five women at once multiple times a day, the cast started doing the same thing.
The A+ list actor said there was literally no place you could go on the set where people were not having sex.
He said he would come back to his trailer and there would be multiple couples inside having sex.
People had sex in corners or in bathrooms.
It was out of control.
This was not a one day thing.
For the entirety of the shoot, this went on.
He says he has never seen anything like it before or since.
He thinks maybe that is the reason the movie sucked so bad.
No one was around to rehearse very much and these scenes involved a lot of that.
They would just do the bare minimum and be off having sex with someone new.
