Pretty good; not too dirty
23 November 2004 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

Tommie is the Madam in this family of New Orleans prostitutes. Her daughter Jeanette didn't seem to have much of a choice about going into the business, and Jeanette's teenage daughter, Monica, has a daughter of her own, and she is having trouble keeping the daughter because of her family situation. Meanwhile, the FBI is looking for some way to shut the brothel down.

This is based on a true story, and the Sept. 11 attacks become relevant to the plot. The movie's best part came near the end, and Annabella Sciorra, Ellyn Burstyn and Dominique Swain all gave their best performances at that time, as did Gary Grubbs as an FBI investigator. The movie was not technically a comedy, but the ending certainly was funny.
