Though this has its share of silly moments and overdone lampoonery, Dick Shafer's pseudodocumentary about his stint as Playgirl magazine's 1992 “man of the year”—an extended promotional gig complicated by the fact that he's gay—is pretty funny much of the time. The movie combines a certain amount of real-life footage with satiric re-creation and dares you to sort out which is which. Chances are you won't have too hard a time, but that'll probably make the movie more fun to watch, not less. With Shafer (as himself), the model Fabio (ditto), Bill Brochtrup, Beth Broderick, Lu Leonard, and Cal Bartlett. 86 min.
