Delightful and informative! This movie gives a peek into Holland's world of legal prostitution through these twin sister prostitutes. Definitely worth seeing. It ended leaving us wanting more!

Village Voice
Directors Rob Schröder and Gabrielle Provaas capture some un-pretty details of spankings, HJs, and dominance scenarios, but the film is about two old ladies, still cackling despite the sadness that trailed in the wake of the lives into which they were forced. Full Review

New York Daily News
What we really want is to get to know them. Instead, the film too-aptly reflects life in their line of work: brief interludes rather than intimate soul-baring. That's a shame, since there can't be that many 70-year-old identical twin prostitutes with a 50-year history in the business. Full Review

Time Out New York
Truthfully, watching septuagenarian whores spank mildly titillated johns and test-drive sex toys has never seemed so ho-hum - or so oddly familiar. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Warm-hearted and entertaining, if more sad than its quirky premise suggests. Full Review
Joseph Jon Lanthier
Slant Magazine
Few recent studies of commercialized sex have been character profiles, so Rob Schröder and Gabrielle Provaas's documentary is an unusual and welcome polemic. Full Review
