Elektra Luxx gets tongue tied

I was searching Netflix and found a film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt called Elektra Luxx. It is a spoof on an adult film star trying to break away from the business because of an unexpected pregnancy. Unfortunately, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is not the feature actor, but his appearance are funny and campy. Carla Gugino plays the title role has some hilarious moments, but many of them are lost with a wordy script that never delivers the goods. There is also an appearance by Julianne Moore as the Virgin Mary and Adrianne Palicki (Holly Rocket) has the most ridiculous lines I have heard in a long time.  The main problem for me rests with the script. It sounded like an actors workshop project that was still in development. Some lines aren’t funny while others try to explain the joke with too much detail. I love the cast and the concept, but at times, I wanted to fast-forward to get to the “good” parts.
