I don’t really have anything against porn parodies, save for when you do them way too often for the sake of publicity, at which point it starts being something of a one-trick pony. There are some good ones, but they usually work better if the sex naturally fits into the source material’s universe, as opposed to when it’s shoe-horned in awkwardly. Also, they make buttloads of money, because apparently sex is hotter when the performers are dressed like people you’ve seen on TV. “Oh my gosh, that lady looks like the chick from The Big Bang Theory! That makes it so much better!” said no one ever. Anyway, Andrew Garfield somehow managed to fully form his character in The Amazing Spider-Man by watching the porn parody, because everything you learned in acting classes is wrong. Starpulse reports:

Garfield tells Hollywood.com, “I watched it a few times. I watched it more from an inspirational stand point than from a sexual standpoint. I think you can find inspiration from anywhere when it comes to this character because it’s everyone’s; it belongs to everyone.” And Braun is thrilled his film could help the Brit find his Spider-Man. The X-rated moviemaker tells WENN, “This is totally awesome. It goes a long way to validate my efforts to reach out to a different demographic than the typical porn consumer, and to do justice to a character that I love. Thank you Andrew for the massive ego stroke.”

Well, it might be a bit weird to say you derived inspiration from a porn parody, but hey, it’s still a helluva lot better than deriving your entire movie from a board game. Isn’t that right, Battleship? And also Candyland. Holy crap, that movie is going to suck and it is going to suck HARD.
