Three kids and a hooker
1 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Frank's father Tom Wheeler (Ed Harris) doesn't like to talk about his dead mother. He is struggling to understand girls. With his two friends, they decide to go to the city and pay to see a naked woman. The boys get robbed in a parking lot only to be rescued by V (Melanie Griffith). She happens to be a hooker and she flashes them her boobs. Cash (Casey Siemaszko) is her pimp and Waltzer (Malcolm McDowell) is his boss. The boys get their bikes stolen and V drives them home. Her car breaks down and Frank tells his father that she's a math tutor. He's a school teacher trying to save a tiny neighborhood wetland. She ends up living in Frank's treehouse and Frank wants her to marry his father. Cash stole money from Waltzer and is killed but only after telling him that V has the money.

It's a strange thing to make a comedy about young kids and a hooker. It's not a kids movie but it's way too light weight to be anything else. The kids seem way too young to be so deep into sex education. A hooker in the suburb is an odd proposition already but director Richard Benjamin keeps trying to make this into a family movie ... with a lot of talk about sex. At some point, one would expect Melanie Griffith to button up her blouse at least. The problem is all the sex material is connected directly with little kids and any laughs from that are awkward at best.
