In this satirical, sharp-edged comedy, Amy (Emma Roberts) is a naïve, awkward aspiring poet in a post-grad existence that is going nowhere. Living with her parents in a bland upstate New York town, certain of her yet-to-be-acknowledged literary greatness and desperate for income, she begrudgingly accepts a job at Adult World, the local sex shop owned by a frisky elderly couple (including a wonderful Cloris Leachman) and staffed by diva transvestite Rubio and adorable local boy Alex. Amy balances her work amongst the pornography and sex toys by fiercely pursuing a surefire kick start for her success: a mentorship with reclusive, crusty and alcoholic writer Rat Billings, played by a bitterly funny John Cusack.
