      Critics Consensus

      Though it begins promisingly enough, The Fluffer eventually descends into melodrama.

      Audience Member Not bad actually. Bit boring in parts but main character is hot. Always helps ! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member What on earth did I just watched?? Money and Sex don't go well together, it's the sad truth. None of the characters were likeable and it wasn't graphical enough to be an exploitational film or artistic enough to be an art house. It's one of the worst film since Orgazmo. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member sem comentários para essa coisa... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A great insight to the world of the gay porno industry. Funny, dramatic, and realistic dialogue. A very enjoyable watch and look at the darker side of sex. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member A fit cast does not make up for a crap movie :( Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Had potential to be much better.

      Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Susan Walker Toronto Star Those in search of a film about gay men disillusioned in Hollywood with a better script and more dramatic heft should rent Gods And Monsters or Thom Fitzgerald's Beefcake. Rated: 2/4 May 24, 2002 Full Review Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post More tasteful, sensitive and original than you might imagine. Rated: 4/5 Mar 29, 2002 Full Review Doug Brantley Out Magazine Everything you hoped Boogie Nights would be, only without the prosthesis. May 25, 2022 Full Review Will Clark The Advocate While some might guffaw at a lot of the situations that go on around the sets depicted in The Fluffer, I just nodded in agreement with the truth of it all.
