Just a Gigolo is a movie best appreciated by those who are 45 and older and who enjoy older films. It is not a prime time movie. It is probably best enjoyed late at night or on a rainy afternoon. I found the acting in the movie mostly to be, put it lightly, atrocious. However, that was the style in the early films. Watch the lifestyles of the rich and famous in 1931. The best thing about this movie is that it is fairly short, just a little over an hour in length, and will fill empty time and create empty noise. I am most grateful for the short movie. Wine and cheese are on the menu for snacks for this film. Popcorn is okay. The movie may even be a cure for insomnia if it were not for the screeching female voices in the film, particularly the French accented one. It's not so bad to rate it as really bad. It's just bad and I enjoy older films. Not a total waste of time though.
