This movie should be rated R. I saw it before Parent Previews had a review, and I was completely unaware of how awful it would be! It contains almost complete nudity during a lengthy strip club scene.

The bulk of this movie takes place within the dregs of society: at a race track, casino, casino back rooms, strip club, etc. I’m so glad I didn’t take my children. The acting was campy and horrible, and the story was not at all believable. The language was terrible, and it was very violent. Unfortunately, that’s $8 and 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back!
