This story about a gigolo isn't plausible or compelling enough.

Acting is what sustains the unstable plot lines.
The direction, by George Hickenlooper, has no snap to it, no wiseacre crackle or hard-bitten cynicism.
Pompous and garbled.
A rare comedy of manners, witty, wicked and worldly, and one of the best movies of the year.
Moves in such odd plot directions and descends into such message-mongering moralism that its good qualities are obscured.
Only the charm and attractiveness of the cast keeps this movie from the remainder bin.
What really sneaks up is how involved one gets into these characters and their complicated relationships.
It mixes banality with literature and comes up with a pap concoction.
The tone keeps a marvelous balance between intelligence and pity.
Best of all is Garcia, who perfectly portrays the desperation of a very insecure man.
...a trashy little bit of fluff stuffed with enjoyable performances and a bewildering sense of self-importance
Smart and full of sharply drawn characters and wonderfully snappy dialogue.
A mature and worldly screenplay is executed by actors giving elegantly crafted performances. Garcia, Jagger and Coburn all work together (despite Coburn and Jagger never sharing a scene). It's the way actions affect others and how ones own selfish desires can make or break a person. The men not only assert their power to gain wealth and acceptance but are also exploited by their female counterparts. All characters evolve and learn life lessons without the screenplay coming across as a self help novel. Emotional and funny only hampered by a surprisingly uninspired montage and an ending that feels to happily rushed.
Plays out better than it sounds, due to the cast.
