Fresh talent Tara Subkoff, who was excellent in the little seen teen angst drama "All Over Me," stars as Jake, a teen girl whose sister (Kristy Swanson) refuses to let her stay with her. So Jake meets Sandra Bernhard, a masseuse/whore who takes her under her wing. Jake then becomes interested in the job, so she also joins, against Bernhard's will. The plot makes this seem like a dark, gritty drama, sort of like the massage parlor "Whore," but "Lover Girl" is really light and quirky, and not very funny or dramatic.
Besides to see Subkoff, there is no reason to check out "Lover Girl". 2 STaRs OuT oF FoUR.
