Synopsis

He's the porn world's Everyman. Blessed with an enormous "talent" yet average looks, he's starred in more than 1,700 adult films, directed 250 of them, and over the last twenty years has become porn's biggest ambassador to the mainstream. He's appeared in 60 regular films, 14 music videos, and VH1's Surreal Life, starred in the critically acclaimed Porn star (a movie about his life), and in Being Ron Jeremy (a take off on Being John Malkovich), co-starring Andy Dick. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. . . .

Ron Jeremy is a born storyteller (funny, considering he doesn't do a lot of talking in his films). He knows where all the bodies are buried, and in this outrageous autobiography he not only shows you the grave but also gives you the back story on the tombstone. Get ready for Ron Jeremy—a scandalously entertaining deep insider's view of the porn industry and its emergence into popular culture, and a delectable self-portrait of the amazingly endowed Everyman every man wanted to be.

In a more enlightened age, Being Ron Jeremy and Desperately Seeking Seka would be the titles of honest-to-goodness porno films, but this is the age of smut-once-removed, when adult entertainment is so readily available that it's lost its cachet.

Back in what is now referred to, with only a twinge of irony, as the Golden Age of Porn (i.e., the pre-video '70s), Ron Jeremy, a failed young Off Off Broadway actor from Queens, got a job performing in a hardcore feature film, then another one, then about a million more.

News Review.

For every hint that Jeremy’s life might not be perfect, Gill shows us 20 shots of drooling 20-something men saying things like, “Ron Jeremy is my idol, man, he’s like da king!” For every shot (and there are several) of Jeremy schlepping alone through airports, his belongings crammed into plastic ...
