OPens with Men are a joke

Whatever.

Music is fast moving.

Prints are now degraded and bleached out yellow.

It's a nothing movie with a dumb plot. Supposed to be a drama but it's more like a farce.

There's just about every stereotype on the planet in this horrible film.

Only saving grace are the full frontal nude scenes.
