`Boogie Nights', a dark comedy about the rise, fall and partial rise again of a male porn star, is out next week. Laurence O'Toole looks at a film that features Mark Wahlberg - aka Marky Mark, white rapper and Calvin Klein underwear model. Is thi s the first of a new genre of Hollywood art porn films? With a title like Boogie Nights, you know you're in for a vintage disco soundtrack and some dodgy dancing gear to match. Though the director, Paul Thomas Anderson is too young to have lived the disco lifestyle, he lays on a feast of period kitsch: bubble perms, Saturday Night Fever line- dance sequences, gaudily-patterned polyester shirts. Kitsch is also how he characterises Seventies cinematic porn, captive to bad taste, loud emotions and sensual excess.

Did you hear the din of duelling banjos? Or did that lovable "sonofabitch" in Smokey and The Bandit spring to mind? Get ready to adjust your archives. By all accounts, Reynolds has made a Travolta-sized comeback as Jack Horner, a blue movie producer who wants to make "art" in the upcoming Boogie Nights.

Hollywood is a past master at conjuring fears into family entertainment. Child abuse; child rights? It will grasp those nettles, sure, but in the form of dopey comedies like North (about a boy who tries to divorce his parents), Getting Even With Dad and Baby's Day Out - all cunningly encoded versions of modern anxieties about kid power. When America takes the big issues seriously, they'll be ghettoised in TV movies-of-the-week.
