Storyline

Young Frank and his pals get an idea for the ultimate in excitement. They decide to pool their savings, bicycle to the nearby Big City, and hire some woman of the streets to strip for them. Things do not work out that simply, but they do meet V, a Hooker With A Heart Of Gold, who ends up giving them a ride home. Soon she is living in Frank's treehouse, unbeknownst to Frank's widowed father Tom, who thinks she is one of Frank's teachers. Soon, however, the evil Waltzer comes looking for V.

Trivia

Goofs

A tin can telephone will only work when the string is taut. When Frank first uses it to call V in the tree fort, the string is quite clearly hanging slack. When Tom has a fight at the school dance, you can see him punch the guy in the back but the sound of the punch is delayed. See more »

Quotes

Frank Wheeler: My mother died before I was born.
V: I don't think that's possible.
Frank Wheeler: Okay she had me first and then she died right after.

Entertaining feel-good comedy
17 January 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Very conservative people might not like the plot of this film (kid tries to get his widowed dad and an ex-hooker to fall in love with each other), but actually everything is quite harmless and fun.

The story gets sometimes a bit silly (especially when the boy takes Melanie Griffith to school as part of his "science project"), but the acting and the comedy is good. There was always a smile on my lips as I watched the misunderstandings between Harris and Griffith, when the dad believes that she is a math tutor and the hooker believes he knows her true job.

Ed Harris does a good job as the shy father, and Melanie Griffith is believable as the golden hearted hooker. But it's the kid (Michael Patrick Carter) the one who steals the show, with his winning smile and his mixture of innocence and curiosity.
