Storyline

Guy Carter is an award-winning graduate student of architecture. He's got a beautiful wife and a baby on the way. The problem? He doesn't have "his ducks in a row," which only fuels his doubts about being a good father. Guy has been trying to find work in his field for a year with no luck. At wit's end, his wife Anne finds him a job as a 'driver' on Craigslist. Guy shows up for the interview thinking he'll be delivering pizzas, but quickly realizes it's a job driving prostitutes. With money too scarce to turn down, he goes for it- which is where he meets Nikki, the tough-as-nails, unapologetic sex worker, and her two hilarious and foul-mouthed cohorts, Jaxi and Fallon. As reluctant driver and protector Guy is thrust into a world of rockin' women and feeble men. Over the course of one wild and sordid night, and several 'come-to-Jesus' moments, Guy proves to Nikki, and himself, that he does have what it takes to be the responsible father his family deserves.

Nothing to remember but a decent time.
21 June 2017 | by destroyerwodSee all my reviews

I was really interested in this movie because i really like Jason Biggs, i think the guy is genuinely funny and Sean William Scott is not the only main star of the American Pie Franchise. So yes his name meant something for me. Also i happen to know a bit about this "industry" showed in the movie i tough it would be funny to see what the writer and director had in store for the movie, especially considering the label "based on a true story".

I would say based on what i saw in reality some points of the movie are really stretched from reality but some other points are actually truthful.

Some of the exaggeration are meant as jokes and some hit it while others really missed the point. I think the movie is full of good ideas, some nicely done while others completely miss there target.

This had the potential to be another of those "awesome crazy nights" movies i like so much in the vein of "Superbad, Take me Home Tonight, 21 and Over etc", but in the end it lacked the juice to pull it off.

Yet its still entertaining and worth a watch, just not gonna become a classic...
