Worlds worst girlfriend
28 June 2017 | by parkertignorSee all my reviews

The plot is utter crap.

Girl puts boyfriend and her in debt and convinces her boyfriend the only way out is her giving lap dances ummmmmm yay..... :( He should kick her to the curb like you should kick this movie to the curb.

There are so many other ways to empower women but stripping..... really?

I'm going to go rub sand in my eyes now.
