REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..though it is funny - at times, laugh-out-loud funny - this comedy is by and for adults..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
2.5 of 5

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
