25. “SKIN FLICK”
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.
