Am I The Only One Who Has Ever Seen This Movie?
10 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

You can tell that this was a low budget movie! Two girls lose their financial aid. They need $10,000 each so they can go back to school for their final year and graduate. So they travel to Las Vegas and enter a pool contest. They take a gay man with them. However, an ugly man also comes to the trip with them. The ugly man beats up the gay man in the bathroom. However, the gay man gets revenge at the end of the movie when he rubs his fingers on the ugly man's back. Now back to the two fly girls in the movie. What man would let a woman walk on his stomach? We knew the girls were going to win. But why did they leave their $50,000 prize money in the safe of a low budget motel for someone to steal? The ending is so predictable. They ended up getting their money back and graduating from college. And the man who tried to talk to Tawny Dahl happens to pop up at the house.
