This Saturday, US cable network Showtime will be premiering 'Rated X', a new film starring Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen, and also featuring Nicole deBoer (Ezri Dax) as Karen. NikkiDeBoer.com has posted the following air schedule for the film:

- May 29, 10:00pm
- June 6, 10:00pm

The first previews of the film have also already gone up. In the first one, People Magazine's Terry Kelleher calls it an "uneven" film, though it also "rates a look". Thanks go out to Nicole deBoer Kastner for the link!
Furthermore, the May 12 edition of Entertainment Weekly contained a short review of 'Rated X' in its 'What To Watch' section. Here's a snippet:
Directed by Estevez, 'Rated X' tries to portray [porn directors] Mitchells as middle-class libertines brought down by cocaine and fusty obscenity laws, but you don't need invidious comparisons to the relatively scholarly 'Boogie Nights' to find this potentially perceptive porn peep a major disappointment: 'Rated X' is a tedious bummer all on its own.
