Movie Review by Zara
November 24th, 2009

This movie grates on the nerves like a rusty cheese grater. I'm not one of those people who have ever found Ashton Kutcher to be attractive so the whole premise of the movie - that he's a homeless, car-less gigolo who likes to keep a points system on how long it will take the wealthy executive women to trust him before he can take over their house and use it as his own personal playground - just didn't sit well with me.

The woman that we get to see him exploit the most is the strange Anne Heche, a chick that I never understood the appeal of either. The fact that she's willing to get very nude and very nasty in the movie in order to prove that while she's aging as an actress, she still has something to offer, is sick in its own regard. Really, the two characters and the two actors are meant for each other. But Ashton already snagged his executive piece of Hollywood ass, so they save this part for the movie.

Of course he ends up falling in love with another chick and of course she's exactly like him in regards to playing men for money in order to get out of having to work all that hard at life. I'm not saying that life should be a struggle but I think more people need to get their heads out of their asses and realize that life is what you make of it, and being poor has its advantages as well as being a working stiff. People who buy into the dream are as sad as this movie comes off.

The only reason why I'm giving it a slightly higher rating than I initially thought was because there is one good scene in which Heche tells Kutcher off, explaining that he's getting older and that while he has a pretty face, he's got nothing else to back it up. He's not smart, he's not funny and he only has 6 inches to go along with the package. That scene is the one to watch in the flick. The rest is as vacuous as its lead character.
