Lenore...Again...
12 October 2012 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Former work colleague Lenore meets would-be pimp Tanya (Jane Adams) for lunch and tells her she'd like to book a date with gigolo Ray (Thomas Jane). Lenore is bad news but she pays up front for his particular service this time. The tryst is a prelude to Lenore's attempt to displace Tanya as Ray's pimp (madam, procurer or whatever).

One notes a certain logic to the offer given that Lenore appears considerably more comfortable with such a role and milieu than earnest and dorky Tanya. But looks can be deceiving. A physically beautiful (in a scary kind of way) woman like Lenore is avoided by acquaintances for a lot of reasons aside from her abrasive, condescending, profane demeanour. This person is a dangerous x factor.

Tanya is failing miserably at trying to get clients for Ray. She is trying to sell female co-workers on Ray's service which is a bad idea for all sorts of reasons. It is her place of work and besides that women there don't have much money.

Ray's nightmarish shrew ex-wife Jessica (Anne Heche) becomes a client of Lenore's personal shopper service and Lenore makes her even worse. If it doesn't ring alarm bells it should. Lenore knows firsthand what Ray does as a sideline - something which is not only illegal but which his ex and his kids don't know about.
