      Kirk Honeycutt Hollywood Reporter Acting is what sustains the unstable plot lines. Mar 12, 2003 Full Review Susan Stark Detroit News Rated: 4/4 Mar 1, 2003 Full Review Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel The direction, by George Hickenlooper, has no snap to it, no wiseacre crackle or hard-bitten cynicism.

      Audience Member Loved it!! Must see movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member One of my favorite movies. What red blooded American boy wouldn't want to work at an escort service and live in pasadena? Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Frances H I found this film intriguing, even though the critics thought it wasn't "compelling or plausible" it certainly kept my interest, and I liked the ending. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/17/14 Full Review Audience Member Literate film with great performances drags during the second half. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This drama has a solid plot, but suffers from pacing just a bit too slow. Mick Jagger is charismatic and believable as Luther Fox, but Andy Garcia has more difficulty as the lead, especially when compared to Jagger. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member I watched this movie with low expectations (having never heard of it), and finished satisfied. A unique film, I enjoyed the performance of Andy Garcia. It was a nice change to see a singer like Mick Jagger on the screen playing the role with talent.
