Critic Reviews for The Players Club
... better than Showgirls * *But mister, please * *I'm afraid it falls a little bit short of Striptease.
Feisty, funky, sympathetic without being condescending to the bad hand dealt many single mothers, and rudely funny to boot.
A bit uneven but works a lot better as a serious drama than its individual ingredients would make it appear to be.
