Though it pretends to expose the life of male hustlers, it's exploitive without being insightful.

The high-concept scenario soon proves preposterous, the acting is robotically italicized, and truth-in-advertising hounds take note: There's very little hustling on view.

The actors are forced to grapple with hazy motivations that never come into focus.
