QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A number of strip club dancers band together to steal money from men.
PLOT:
Destiny (CONSTANCE WU) is the new exotic dancer at Manhattan's Moves, a high-end strip joint that caters to the full spectrum of Wall Street investors who are flush with cash in 2007. It's not long before veteran dancer Ramona (JENNIFER LOPEZ) takes Destiny under her wing, teaches her the tricks of the trade, and makes money alongside her. But then the economic recession hits in 2008, Destiny ends up having a baby, and she and Ramona drift apart.

A few years later and desperate for work, Destiny returns to Moves only to find the place no longer the cash machine it once was. But she runs into Ramona who's still making money privately entertaining men alongside fellow dancers Mercedes (KEKE PALMER) and Annabelle (LILI REINHART). With experience that drunk or high men will spend exorbitant amounts of cash on them, Ramona proposes that they be proactive in such regards and it's not long before the four women -- eventually joined by a few others such as coke-head Dawn (MADELINE BREWER) -- are spiking various men's drinks with ecstasy and then maxing out their credit cards while they're impaired.

In the aftermath of that criminal activity, Destiny ends up being interviewed by a reporter, Elizabeth (JULIE STILES), who's doing a story on the women and their ploy to take control of their own lives and the lecherous behavior of men.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
