The only pimping movie with good interviews and plenty of trashy people to laugh at
11 January 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

a rare glimpse in to the pimping lifestyle, shows just how a ridiculous amount of money can be wasted on providing just the right trashy pimped-out look. although this documentary can be a little bit slow in parts, it's one of those films where you say to yourself "i'm so glad i saw it once, but probably wouldn't sit through it again".

I rated a 9 due to unique content. i've seen other documentaries about pimping, none really have the content that this does. the pimps interviewed in this film were very open and contribute a lot of information to make this documentary something special.

Fur coats, over-sized pointless jewelry, big shiny classic cars.
