Jane McCoy, a recent college graduate, much to her parent's dismay, decides to scrap her plans for law school to pursue an acting career full-time. Struggling to make ends meat, she meets a confident and persuasive friend who shows her the way to make extra money go-go dancing. What starts as just an "easy money" job, however, rapidly becomes an all-consuming activity that slowly pulls Jane from her acting classes, her relationships with her boyfriend and family, and, most importantly, from her true self.
Jane McCoy (Chelsea Hobbs) surprises her upper class parents by abandoning law school plans to go study acting. They cut her off. Her boyfriend Eric Baldwin tries to be supportive. Angela Lucas (Sarah Carter) befriends her who turns out to be a go-go dancer at a club owned by Nick Harvey (Corbin Bernsen). Donna Mercer (Rachel Hunter) is an older dancer and single mom. Jane starts out dancing to pay for head shots and to gain confidence. Angela starts going downhill after her boyfriend steals all of her money. Jane follows her down with drugs and actual stripping.
The actresses are good. There is a lot of sexy dancing for a Lifetime movie but there is no nudity. In fact, any unrealistic aspects of this movie has to be put down to the fact that it is a TV movie. It's not a gritty realistic portrayal of stripping. I doubt the girls could make much money without showing anything in 2008. The emotional journey is fine but it's a little too cliché. This would work better as a gritty indie.
