Wayne Wang directed this digitally shot tale of sex, money and consequences on location in Las Vegas. The premise is mildly interesting, but it never really picks up steam. The two main characters are fleshed out very well. Peter Skarsgaard (the rich computer geek) and Molly Parker (the broke stripper) are totally believable, they’re just not that interesting and the film has little to suck you in with.
This is especially true if you’ve seen the trailer where Parker utters a memorable line that takes place during the climax (no pun intended) of the movie! Why give that scene away? I hate previews like that. And when there’s not much else going on story-wise, why give up the third act?
News flash: Did you know that sex and cash can change everything? Snooze.
