A hard-working small business owner and his two associates travel to Europe to close the most important deal of their lives. But what began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every way imaginable - and unimaginable.
Ben Novak Jr (Rob Lowe) inherited the famous Fountainebleau Hotel in Florida. He married Narcy (Paz Vega), a stripper and pole dancer and she has a daughter,/ May (Seychelle Gabriel). Later Narcy accuses Ben of being unfaithful. Let the games begin.
In the beginning we see that Ben is dead, but he narrates the story anyway. They can do this in Hollywood. The narration is almost tongue-in-cheek and Ben holds no animosity toward Narcy, who becomes the center of a police investigation and he actually, kind of, blames himself as he believes he and Narcy were similar. When he is first attacked he doesn't want to file formal charges against Narcy because the publicity would harm his business.
Also in the beginning we will see some kinky sex stuff as young Ben is exposed to the Stripper world. It doesn't last long and after that there is no more, but it is shown to show Ben's upbringing in this arena and perhaps accumulating his taste for kinky sex.
Candace Bergan plays Ben's mother Bernice and does a credible job, but the scene where she dances (awkwardly) with a expensive sable wrap was wholly out of place and embarrassing to watch. Thankfully that scene doesn't last long.
Because Narcy knows that Ben's Will gives everything to Bernice, Narcy has some work for her brothers. Later when Ben wants to legally adopt May, Narcy knows there is more work to be done. Hard to believe there are people like Narcy out there, but there are.
See the statements at the end of the movie to find out what happened to everyone. (5/10)
Violence: Yes. Sex: Yes. Nudity: Yes, briefly in the beginning. Language: No.
