Movie Info

Tom Riley, Tom Burke, Carmen Electra and Michelle Ryan co-star in British director Stephen Surjik's smutty sex comedy I Want Candy. The picture concerns two film students Baggy (Burke) and Joe (Riley), enrolled at a university in Leatherhead, England. The pair just recently completed a script that they plan to shoot for their graduation thesis, and want to use it to break into the British movie industry. Alas, their professor informs them of a two-minute imposition on the length of the thesis film. Discouraged, Joe and Baggy head off on a trip to London, where they attempt to solicit the interest of producers in the script - but they only succeed in catching the eye of a porn mogul, Doug Perry (Eddie Marsam) who agrees to finance the project if and only if they will turn it into a porno feature and talk ingénue Candy Fiveways (Electra) into starring. Undaunted, the boys set off to locate Candy and convince her to perform in their movie.

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

If you fancy being depressed this weekend, why not pop along to this film about two British blokes making porn?

March 24, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Ropey bit-part actors - this cheerful exploitation of The Full Monty formula still entertains.

Top Critic

This is no Full Monty, but like the film-within-a-film, it's got enough creativity and enthusiasm to win young audiences over. And, of course, it's also rather rude.

March 20, 2007 | Rating: 3/5
Top Critic

Predictable, derivative, tedious, distasteful, badly written, stupid, insulting to women, insulting to Eastern Europeans, clichéd, woefully directed and woefully acted all round.

August 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Billed as 'The British American Pie', a label applied apparently without irony.

November 3, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A crude, leering, poorly timed farce.

Audience Reviews for I Want Candy

A pretty good English attempt at a teen comedy. Quite similar to The girl next door, Weird Science in idea. Low budget but with a pretty strong cast, it has it share of funny moments. The award ceremony part was filmed across the road from where I live!

Fine sexy UK comedy of two would-be filmmakers making a porn film with a famous porn actress. So hilarious since Barely Legal. GOD, Cameron Electra looks more sexy in the scenes - WHOOO! And I was surprised by seeing British actress Michelle Ryan (New Bionic Woman TV series) appeared in this movie at the first time I ever saw.

Was hoping for more but this was a watchable, well rounded comedy with some great lines.
