Movie Title's Self Explanatory
17 March 2020 | by drivemenutzlongSee all my reviews

Married couple goes to great lengths to amass quick money to pay their bills & live their dreams...but their new lifestyle slowly spins out of control to become a nightmare! Reminds me of a movie I would've picked up on a Tuesday night from a Blockbuster in the early 90s but Carmen Electra looked way younger and the plot was a little more fresh. Lap dances typically tend to be over rated but four stars seems appropriate for this...
