Regarding “Car Date,” I watched the trailer and then read the two reviews on iTunes. For some crazy reason I’m suspicious that what’s going on is a sort of “Blair Witch” marketing campaign. Is it possible that this is a “real” movie masquerading as a PUA how-to, and that the two porn stars complaining about being had are actually part of the angle? I don’t know—I just feel like something is up.
