Oh, my goodness.
23 September 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I forgot about this film until the other night, one of the premium cable channels dug this up. Then I remembered it. It was not an academy award winning drama by any stretch of the imagination and the best thing about this film is watching actors who went on to bigger and better things.

That is the beauty of a film like this...you look at it from "back in the day" and say, "Hey isn't that so-and so ... who was in such and such?" There's a lot of that here.

The story is simple, girl leaves home, turns street walker to survive on the mean, dirty, slimy streets. The small twist is that she runs away with her little brother. And you've got Antonio "huggy bear" Fargas playing...gasp...a pimp! Whata stretch! You'll get to see the street competition with pimps, drug use, cheesy lines, slapping around your ho's ...all sorts of things like that before Disney got a hold of street walkers to make them look super clean and cute.

Yes, this movie consists of all the things that made movies like this a nice springboard and paycheck for up and coming actors to cut their teeth with.

Low budget, low acting film.
