Good luck
27 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess this movie would have been a little better if common sense was used. The main character comes in counter with the prostitute when she's struck by a car. Okay that's fine and dandy but let's take her to a hospital for help. Not to the apartment when you think you can cure her. I have to be honest the plot of this movie could have been extremely better. I didn't like seeing him lay with a dead body in his apartment until her body is decaying. I mean no cops showed up because of the smell. It just seemed like a lame Romeo and Juliet story. I did like the fact that he decided to stick up for himself a little. But he didn't handle death very well. Which is common for most people who experience loved ones passing. She found a way out of prostitution but I don't think that was the way she expected. I honestly wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone.
