Taylor Mendon is a Hollywood scriptwriter on a minor rebound from drugs and booze. He's writing for a mirthless sit-com and betting on the horses behind his wife's back when her sister calls needing help: Taylor's 20-year-old niece Amanda has become a hooker in Las Vegas. He promises to find her, bring her back, and pay for her stay at an expensive rehab center. Once in Nevada, Taylor starts gambling in earnest using money loaned him by the casino. He also finds Amanda, a cheerful prostitute, uninterested in reform. Can Taylor win back his borrowings, keep his wife from discovering his habit, and help Amanda find redemption? Or is life different from a sit-com?Written by
You and me - we live to make bad choices. We need a person in our lives who, who looks at us when we fuck up and remembers who we were, who we could be. If you don't have someone like that, all you have is you. Sooner or later, left to your own brilliant damaged devices, you'll just go spinning off the goddamn planet. You lose that person, you're done.

I've only seen the trailer, which I downloaded last night. I was doing research on Brittany Snow, and recognized the poster as an image remembered from my days scouring video shops. For some reason I never got around to this title, despite the attractive girl on the box. I wondered why? An oversight, I thought. Began scouting. Poor choices. Local stuff with weak box image, and foreign stuff with Polish language all over the cover. No fun that way. Okay, is this really gonna be worth it? So downloaded the trailer. And thank you, Tubidy, you saved me a bundle. This is dreary and humdrum and bleak and like one of the other reviewers headlined, "half- hearted" and that is only the trailer. But, believe me, if a trailer looks like a shabby product, it's not gonna be anything else but a shabby product. Looks like some TV movie on a very conservative channel showing something a little bit controversial in subject matter. No doubt there will be some moments of laughter but everything seems down-class with an unimpressive cast.
I could be wrong, maybe it's a gem if you see the whole thing. But I wouldn't bet on that. No way. Trailers looking A+ could still lead to ol' dogs, but boring ones indicate surefire losers.
The basic idea holds promise, that I concede. But...
Back then, in the video shop, I can only gather now something tipped me off. Ten years ago, I just can't remember, but good call! Waste of time, this kind of unpromising, ostensibly paltry effort.
