Storyline

Benjamin Mara has three daughters. One of them is Beauty who always dreamed of finding prince charming. She therefore rebukes her sister Faith for preferring to pleasure her latest lover Barry under the table. When underground gambler Benjamin loses his business to evil businessman Martin Gross, Martin backs out when Beauty accepts to live with him for one year. When Beauty arrives, Martin invites her watching him giving a casting couch to a buxom would-be centerfold. Beauty's sisters enjoy their masseuse/butler, while Martin enjoys his maid. In Martin's basketball team's locker room, player Betty seduces coach Eddie and another guy, while Martin and trainer Leon enjoy star player Judy Lopez. Faith then invites Beauty to a dinner with her friend Madam Wu, during which Faith finds herself with Madam Wu's butler, Madam Wu with Barry and Beauty with another guest. Unsatisfied, Beauty realizes her fantasy prince was Martin all along. Written by Anonymous
