"Nikki (Ashton Kutcher) has made a career out of targeting older women and using them for anything and everything … in exchange for a little sex. But the player gets played when he meets Heather (Margarita Levieva), a pretty waitress who knows every trick. Before Heather came along, Nikki had a foolproof arrangement with Samantha (Anne Heche), a successful attorney who was happy being "friends with benefits." But now he might actually be in love." courtesy of netflix
I had heard about this movie but for some reason I thought it was about swimming (probably from the movie poster) like a Michael Phelps movie or something and I just wasn't interested and netflix accidentially sent it to me and at first I was pissed but once I read the synopsis, i realized it wasnt about swimming and its actually a VERY entertaining movie. i dont know how but Ashtons character is likeable because he is SUCH an asshole, but he is. as the movie goes on hes narrating the do's and dont's of playing the field. and he is right about almost everything. at the beginning as he goes to walk up to a girl he narrates "theres only one line and the rest are bullshit" and then he says "hi"....'hi' is his line...and it totally would work when you have so many other guys trying to use actual lines. but i definitley recommend it. Ashton is a brillant actor in it, he has this kind of smug-hot-shot voice that goes with his whole persona down to the way he walks. and he wears these suspenders with EVERYTHING. these little tiny suspenders that he also wears with a belt which cracks me up lol
it is a whole new meaning to "fake it till you make it"
