How A-Dult (as we say here) can this get?????
10 June 2006 | by sethn172See all my reviews

By the way, that's A-dult (A like "ham," dult like the regular saying).

Anyhow, "The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood" is one of those films that are like, "Uhh...I really shouldn't be seeing this stuff!!!!!" Yes, I know this movie is chock full of nudity. I can tell because I heard that Batman is nude in this movie! (The Fox Batman, as you can tell; not the WB Batman!) How surprising, I may never see Batman again! "Holy (insert any word here), Batman! How can you get to that point in your career!," as Robin would say. (I'm sure he'd be nude, too).

That's my reaction to this naughty little flick. Heck, even those bots of MST3K fame would never riff it, because it's that naughty! While this movie gets ten stars, you'll need to bless your home theater center after this for that bad thing you watched on it!!!!! Then, you'll need to find a better flick than this!
