Rich with colorful dialogue and characters, it's sometimes ungainly but never boring, and there's a core of truth in its portrait of exotic dancers.

... better than Showgirls * *But mister, please * *I'm afraid it falls a little bit short of Striptease.

Showgirlz 'n the Hood.

October 10, 2001 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

Feisty, funky, sympathetic without being condescending to the bad hand dealt many single mothers, and rudely funny to boot.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

A bit uneven but works a lot better as a serious drama than its individual ingredients would make it appear to be.
