Blue Movie is a satirical novel by Terry Southern about the making of a high-budget pornographic film featuring major movie stars. It was published in 1970.

The story line follows the celebrated cinematic auteur Boris Adrian, known as "B," who undertakes The Faces of Love, an episodic film with high budget production values that will explicitly depict the range of human sexual experience .

The filmmaker "B" is loosely based on Stanley Kubrick. Southern, who collaborated with Kubrick on Dr. Strangelove, dedicated the book "To the great Stanley K."
