Not that impressed
24 April 2003 | by (East Tenn.) – See all my reviews

I can not see the great film that others see. The story is stereotypical of movie about Hollywood. I must have been down there at the wrong times because I never saw all those nasty people there all the times I went down. Besides that the story was normal. Small town girl runs away looking for friend or others ends having no money and ends up working the streets. The main female char... does not work the streets but almost. The cop is a bit hard to take. It has the usual T & A but does it sparingly. All in all just OK. Nothing I would get again.
