Telling Lies In America Review

Joe starts off his stupidity peddling the virtues of the Book of Mormon door to door, only to be greeted by the thugs of the porky porn king, Maxxx Orbison (Michael Dean Jacobs). When said thugs are dispatched by the only black belt Mormon alive, Maxxx decides to offer Joe a career in ho business as the hero in his new porno: Orgazmo.
