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.

You can't not like Matthew Broderick, no matter how despicable his behavior is. One of my favorite American actors ("Election", "You Can Count On Me", etc). He always commits and is always believable. Brittiny Snow is a face you recognize but it's hard to place. She's wonderful and I'll always remember her now. The other actors are used economically and help move the plot, but the focus is certainly on the relationship between Broaderick and Snow. With Las Vegas as the backdrop there's plenty to look at and appreciate. The story is surprising without being too contrived. A quirky, very entertaining film. It's not a big screen release, and because of the content will die a slow death on cable.
