This movie barely touched on the horrors of being a stripper. It made stripping look like it was a fun sexy job, when the reality is that strippers go through terrible things "just to entertain their clients." Most women who have worked in strip clubs will tell you that they're not just taken advantaged of, but they're also sexually, verbally, and physically assaulted by their customers. Apparently, these things happen on a day-to-day basis. They also say that's it's rare to see strippers form friendships. In fact, strippers are actually quite vicious to one another. The conditions are so bad that these women have to turn to drug and alcohol abuse, just to be able to handle their jobs.
I understand if someone disagrees with me. I'm not saying the women in this film had it easy. My problem is that J-Lo, and everyone else involved in this movie, has tried to pass this off as being "female empowerment." I think this is the wrong message to young girls. This lifestyle the shouldn't be praised.
