Harry, Billy, and Dean
14 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

If I had to call Skin And Bone anything it would be soft core pornography. It has a plot so it's not just titillating male frontal nudity. But the three actors who are called on to play our three protagonists Harry, Billy, and Dean just aren't actors or at least not even B list players.

That the plot is also incoherent so you'll have trouble following the exploits of these finely put together young men. Essentially they are three in different stages of their profession. One's a thorough professional, the other is in denial and the third is just learning the ropes.

Skin And Bone is not one to waste your time with except for reasons or prurient interest.
