In the French language version, Hailey rather than saying "This is not a training bra" says "I'm busty", and Kim rather than saying "And this is not "Girls Gone Wild"!" says "And you're not a stripper!", since outside North America, the franchise "Girls Gone Wild" is barely known. See more »
For the first time ever I have been forced to write a review about a movie, because I don't want everyone to spend money of this diabolical piece of work.
What a waste of a superb cast. There is not ONE redeeming feature of this movie. Total waste of my time just to get to the theatre to watch it. I was gone after an excruciating 40 minutes. Don't let the big names fool you. They are ALL way off the mark, but that is to be expected with such a bad script and, oh God, where was the director?.
A big red light and a solid warning..give this a huge miss.If it was free- to-air I'd still change channel.
