Synopsis: In the San Fernando Valley in 1977, teenage busboy Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) gets discovered by porn director Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds), who transforms him into adult-film sensation Dirk Diggler. Brought into a supportive circle of friends, including fellow actors Amber Waves (Julianne Moore), Rollergirl (Heather Graham) and Reed Rothchild (John C. Reilly), Dirk fulfills all his ambitions, but a toxic combination of drugs and egotism threatens to take him back down.

Thank you.

Did you call that girl today?

ROLLERGIRL:

I forgot.

AMBER:

If you don't do it tomorrow, then it's

the weekend and you'll never be able to

OK.

Rollergirl scratches her crotch as she speaks. Amber notices;

AMBER:

What's the matter down there?

ROLLERGIRL:

I gotta go pee.

Well go, then.

passes Buck, Becky and Reed, says hello, dances a moment, then continues on
