Fun movie
31 July 2005 | by rad1701See all my reviews

This little movie was pretty cool for the time. Story was so-so but Annette O'Toole looks really hot in it. Basically she has to "sell herself" to make some money. Kind of a typical movie of the week type plot, but had some depth to it. She also tries to get another girl into the same "job" she is doing. It's hard to recall all the details because I saw this quite sometime ago. I was thinking about it the other day since I really like Annette on "Smallville" and in some of the other films she has done. She went through a phase of doing these TV movies during that time I think. Wish it would come out on video or DVD now. Check it out sometime.
