A couple checks into a suite in Las Vegas. In flashbacks we see that he's a computer whiz on the verge of becoming a dot.com millionaire, she's a lap dancer at a club. He's depressed, withdrawing from work, missing meetings with investors. He wants a connection, so he offers her $10,000 to spend three nights with him in Vegas, and she accepts with conditions: four hours per night of erotic play, and no penetration. During the days in Vegas, they get to know each other, have fun, meet a friend of hers; at night, at least after the first night, things seem to get complicated. Is mutual attraction stirring? Will they play by their rules? Can it be about more than money? Written by
As evidenced on the DVD, even the director, Wayne Wang, sums up the movie incorrectly as being about a guy who meets a stripper in a strip club. No, he met her at a coffee shop where he had seen her several times before, he introduced himself, they talked, he asked her what she did, and she told him she was a drummer, but that she supported herself by being a stripper.

riprock's review is right on. The guy is looking for a good time but in the sense of a somewhat naive dude who's not used to interacting socially. The woman is looking to be comfortable in her job and not having to interact too socially. Yet they are both drawn into each other by their commonality.
Not a film for everybody. Not raunchy enough for the porn freaks, not graphic enough for the art freaks, too graphic for the love story freaks. We're all freaks.
This movie hits a perfect balance in showing the two sides of love, lust, and lingering love.
Great photography, pixillation, mood inspiring, cold -- yes but that's part of the story. Bringing the Carlo Gugino character just at the right time, sent this movie over the edge as as superb look into modern psyches.
This is not a sexy movie. it's a relationship movie. but not just of man <-> woman, but of person <-> person. It's deeper and more personal than many of you think. that's why you don't like it, find it uncomfortable. You see yourself, it's lonely, it's scary, it's fun.
