In 1977 sex was safe; pleasure was a business ... and business was booming. Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, Don Cheadle and William H. Macy star as a family of filmmakers struggling to redefine and revolutionize the adult entertainment industry in Boogie Nights. Idealistic producer Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) aspires to elevate his craft into an art form. Teenager Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) discovers a talent that will propel him to celebrity as adult entertainer Dirk Diggler. Now, at a time when disco and drugs are in vogue, fashion is in flux and the party never seems to stop, dreams of turning sex into stardom are about to collide with cold, hard reality.

Unflinching look at porn industry; lots of sex, drugs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Boogie Nights is a movie for adults with extensive sexuality, drug use, violence, and vulgar language. Sexual acts (some with full nudity) occur throughout with startling realism. Vivid depictions of drug use and addiction are intense and purposefully wrenching. Characters suffer brutal beatings and are killed both by gunfire and drug overdose (there's no skimping on the bloody aftermath in either instance). Language is harsh and unrelentingly obscene.
