Storyline

Several women (and one girl) in L.A. are hiding something from someone else, or discovering something hidden from them. Maxine, a therapist, discovers her husband cheating on her with the mother of Charlotte, a 13-year old patient. Addy (the other woman) and her sister Doris have withheld from the girl the truth of her parentage. Holly, an adult film actor, isn't telling her friend Bambi how she feels about her, and another actor, Elektra, who discovers she's pregnant, hasn't told the baby's father that she loves him. A stuck elevator, a car crash, mid-air turbulence, a flight attendant, a shotgun-wielding bartender, and her roommate, who's a masseuse, help these women communicate.

User Reviews

 
Entertaining and smart movie, worshiping the female power
13 February 2010 | by imdb-5096See all my reviews

This movie has porn stars in it. This can only be cheesy, right?

Well, there were some good movies around this subject - remember Boogie Nights?

In certain ways, this movie is better behaved than many others that deal with sexual topics: Not a single naked nipple, as far as I could see. And the sex talk is pretty honest.

There is a lot of comic relief in it: Holly, the "dumb" sexy girl provokes a few good laughs, e.g. when she asks whether she's an immortal whore, while meaning immoral.

The acting is professional - nothing bothered me about it. The story has a few nice twists, and kept me interested right from the start.

Overall, this is a movie that not only sports a few sexy looking women but also is quite entertaining bringing up a few real-life situations (mother-child relationships, adultery, responsibility, trust, truth and porn).

It's a movie about women, and the love for them. In a way, it reminds me of Almodovar's films.

Give it a try. You won't be embarrassed!
