Storyline

Although this movie is about the Playboy magazine, there are no erotic scenes. Instead it tells the story of three women, who seem to have nothing in common: Abigail is college student at Yale and daughter of one of the professors; Meredith is a married mother and owner of a bowling alley; Janet is a successful broker -- yet all of them decide to pose for the Playboy adult magazine, shocking their peers, friends and co-workers. They have to suffer the consequences, but manage to turn it into a precious experience of life. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Emotionally charged portrayal of overcoming insecurities!
2 October 2000 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

This movie was thought provoking in a sense because it shows how men separate the women that they love from the women they see in girlie magazines! In this flick the women needed to affirm their physical beauty by going to a girlie magazine photographer! Where are the husbands and the fathers? It also makes this decision to pose seem self-centered (not that the characters were self-centered; they were well acted). The women that make an emotionally charged decision to pose rarely think about the loved ones that they will hurt once the pictures are made public! It also serves to turn an otherwise complex, multi-faceted character into an object!This movie also should warn all the husbands and fathers out there to not neglect their wives and daughters; so that they won't resort to drastic measures to feel attractive!
