Half-naked Kristen Dunst in a Vegas Romp? Why Not?
This moive was the biggest piece of trash and I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT
I loved it in that guilty pleasure sort of way... in that 2 AM in the morning and you're looking for an excuse to stay awake kind of way... hoping against hope that Kirsten will finally take off her clothes, glory in her newfound abilities with the pole and dump her wussy boyfriend.
I am disappointed to report, none of these things happen
However, Luis Guzman kicks some ass. A surly Robert Miano (Donnie Brasco) nails the hell out of some MAXIM covergirl. Kirsten does make a pretty decent stripper.
On the other hand, the direction in this movie is awful. The writer, Brenden Beseth, stumbles between Bukowski and illiteracy. The punk who plays the lead should never be allowed to act (yeah right) again.
However, I liked the movie. So many films are unintentionally terrible, that this film is almost satisfying. It's not trying to elevate above the shoddy source material. It's not pretending to be anything that it's not...
Luckytwn is just A BLOODY VEGAS ROMP. A little film outclassed by its heavyweight movie stars...
a guilty pleasure to say the least....
