Storyline

Ben, Larry, Alan, and Steve are about to graduate from college. They are terrified of the prospect of actually having to work hard for a living, so they come up with a plan to support themselves as graduate research students by getting a foundation grant to study sexuality in college-age women. But despite their success at getting paid to bed down pretty girls, the work-load becomes too great, so they open the "study" to businessmen who pay to participate. Only a small mind would call it prostitution, and only a pessimist would think it could backfire.... Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Low budget T & A movie
23 January 2003 | by serickson-1See all my reviews

Okay, so this is not the greatest movie ever made. I agree. I must say it had an interesting story line. Although this is not the type of movie that I normally watch, much less purchase, I did buy a copy. Why, you ask. My father played the judge. He died shortly after filming was completed. I was 12 years old at the time. This is the only piece of his work that I own, so I will treasure it. I am still trying to track other works down. He was a commercial actor as well as movies.

Well, I can at least say that my dad was in a movie with Dennis Quaid.
