Mr. Smith Gets a Hustler Reviews

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

| Original Score: .5/4

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.

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