L.A. Weekly
Credit the Hugheses for plunging headfirst into a deeply taboo topic, but they're doing it for the wrong reasons and thus playing into the worst of public stereotypes, namely that all black men are hustlers. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Lushly entertaining, and its subjects are terrific storytellers with style to burn. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Genuinely entertaining and, thanks to a well of self-deluded quotes from the men, shockingly funny. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
Alternately mind-expanding and brain-numbing. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
American Pimp, if not quite a self-serving orgy of self-justification, can hardly be thought of as a searching look at the skin trade. Full Review
