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

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

Kicks off with an inauspicious premise, mopes through a dreary tract of virtually plotless meanderings and then ends with a whimper.

Faultlessly professional but finally slight.

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.
