by Norm Foster, di­rected by John Cillino. Don’t be afraid of the ti­tle. This hugely en­ter­tain­ing com­edy won’t make you blush. It’s about four in­no­cent peo­ple caught in the head­lights of mak­ing an adult film. The day our pro­tag­o­nist loses his job at a cos­tume out­let, he brings a movie home for his wife to see so she can write a sam­ple re­view for a job she’s ap­ply­ing for as a film critic. It turns out the job’s al­ready been filled and the movie is a porn film. Their best friend, a re­cently fired cam­era­man, tells them how lu­cra­tive those films are and they de­cide to make one to solve ev­ery­one’s fi­nan­cial prob­lems in one fell swoop. A down-on-her-luck ac­tress named Jill mis­tak­enly ar­rives at their house, and ends up in their au­di­tion as well as some other ac­tors to be. Thurs­day-Satur­day, 8 p.m.; Sun­day, 2 p.m., 1 Gran­ite St., West­erly. Gran­iteth­e­atre.com; 401.596.2341.
