A pretty good movie of the week about prostitution...
6 March 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This made for TV movie stars Karen Valentine, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Linda Purl as three women who become prostitutes for different reasons. Karen plays a woman whose son needs a special school. Jamie Lee's character likes the thrill of hooking and Linda's character is saving the money to buy a house. This isn't landmark television but it's better than the title suggests. Karen Valentine is always a top-notch professional actress and she delivers a strong portrayal here. Jamie Lee Curtis and Linda Purl are also good in their roles. Catch this movie if it comes on late night TV (sadly, it doesn't very often) and I think you will like it.
