TRAILER: Carla Gugino & Timothy Olyphant's "Elektra Luxx"

PLOT: Life for porn actress Elektra Luxx (Gugino) gets turned upside down when she finds out she's pregnant.

CAST: Carla Gugino (Watchmen and "Entourage"), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Timothy Olyphant ("Justified" and I Am Number Four), Adrianne Palicki ("Friday Night Lights"), Emmanuelle Chiriqui ("Entourage"), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Marley Shelton (Bubble Boy).

VERDICT: This is basically a romantic comedy where the female lead isn't a chef or a lawyer, but a porn star. Some might say it's the best of both worlds to attract a widespread audience, while others might think it's crass and unrealistic. The hooker-with-the-heart-of-gold bit pretty much cashed its check with Pretty Woman. However, it looks funny enough to rent. Side note: I am sincerely intrigued by what kind of research Gordon-Levitt had to do to play a sex blogger who lives at home with his mom.

Release Date: March 11
