Discuss Hustlers

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.

JLo looking scrumptious in a g-string, being just as nimble around the pole at age 50 was this one's only redeeming quality

Did you see the movie? Oscar worthy? I swear I think J.Lo thinks looking good at 50 and twirling around makes her Oscar worthy..gimme a break!

Next thing you know Marvel fans will be campaigning for Robert Downy Jr to be nominated for EndGame...oh wait...

Couldn't resist the Marvel dig, could ya? Don't worry RDJ "honourably" turned down the nomination out of possibly not wanting to be nominated for a comic book movie, so don't worry, your pretentious awards cam keep the trophies firmly lodged up their ass.

RDJ vs Joaquin Phoenix for the award?! RDJ'd have to be smokin' some serious herb to even think that's even a contest! (oh, and Joker is a loose comic book movie too...doh!)

Oh you're one of those Barney the dinosaur birthday party tots wowed by Joaquin's clown mannerisms, that's cute, where's your dummy? RDJ is an actor, Joaquin is the Phoenix brother no one likes.

RDJ is a great actor, but a LUCKY BASTARD Jon Favreau took a chance on an ex drug addict that FIRED from Ally McBeal (of all shows)...quit acting like he's the epitome of actors...he's NOT!

Quit inflating the ego of a glorified mime artist like Joaquin Phoenix then I'll listen you about RDJ. Deal?

Joaquin is HARDLY my favorite actor..in fact, only seen him in 'Gladiator' and 'Her' and a handful of others (not many) before...but DAMN if he wasn't REALLY CONVINCING and almost SCARY as 'Joker'...he engrossed himself in the role. Can't say the same for RDJ as Iron Man (its cocky RDJ being...cocky RDJ..lol). He showed more acting range in Tropic Thunder (seriously..he stole that movie considering the cast!)
