Plot Summary
Delivering pizzas doesn't pay much -- especially when Randy Bodek (Patrick Dempsey) needs to earn enough to fund next semester's college tuition. During a routine delivery, however, Randy meets a sexy older woman named Alex (Barbara Carrera). The pair become lovers, and soon she's recommending Randy's services to all her unhappily married friends -- just order a pizza with extra anchovies and tip well. But, as Randy soon learns, life as a professional gigolo can get pretty complicated.

  • First-time director Kevin Bacon (Mr. Sedgwick) cleverly maintains a balance of discomfiting and familiar by jumping nimbly around Emily's life. show more

  • It all adds up to an unfortunate misfire: a film at odds with both its source material and itself. show more
