Movie Info

Convinced that his employees are secretly engaging in sexual acts with the customers, untrusting full body massage parlor owner Lawrence (Richard Zeppieri) attempts to cement his suspicions by hiring new manager Conrad (Don McKeller) to investigate his employees. A seemingly placid and incompetent nice guy whose obvious tactics only serve to bond the girls together in keeping the hapless new manager in the dark, masseuses Lea (Lindy Booth), Betty (Tara Spencer-Nairn) and Cindy (Kira Clavell) execute a variety of clever tricks in foiling their boss' plan. It soon becomes obvious however, that both sides may have underestimated the tactics of their opponents. As a battle of wits between the protective Betty and the determined Conrad comes to a head, the characters all appear to have their own motivations in maintaining their position. Spending a year behind-the-scenes in the world of massage parlors in preparation for her lively and insightful debut, screenwriter and director Soo Lyu offers a unique comedy from a seldom seen perspective. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

There's little that's funny and even less that's sexy.

The screenplay is wildly uneven, throwing in useless subplots to pad out the running time...

Audience Reviews for Rub & Tug (Les Masseuses)


[size=3]I thought that this movie was kinda cute, and I liked the ending. I thought that the part where the girl went to la-la land while she was servicing her client was cute, too. Still, I liked the ending and how everything came together for the good. This was a cool movie, well, to me it was[img][/img][/size]
