Adult film producer Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) spots busboy Eddie Adams in one of his regular nightclubs, and in talking to him learns of both his [[BiggerIsBetterInBed extremely generous endowment]] and his quick recovery time (he has already brought himself off twice that evening for $10 a look). After a fight with his mother, Eddie runs away to accept Horner's offer of film work, and soon finds success on the screen as Dirk Diggler, the star of the ''Brock Landers'' action/porn series.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: 'Evil' might be a bit strong, but while Jack Horner has little problem with the Colonel's obvious penchant for teenage girls who are clearly somewhere below the statutory age-of-consent limit, he is utterly disgusted and breaks with him completely upon discovering that the Colonel's tastes extend to pre-pubescent children.
