Pungent semi-autobiographical black comedy about a floundering, addictive Los Angeles TV writer (Matthew Broderick) who travels to Las Vegas to convince his prostitute niece (Brittany Snow) to enter rehab and to prove to his disaffected wife (Maura Tierney) that he can resist his gambling compulsion. Writer-director Peter Tolan's feature directing debut takes on some unlikely topics for comedy, but a redemptive trajectory keeps the film from ranking as sheer exploitation. Nongraphic sexual activity, implied nonmarital sex and cohabitation, rear and upper female nudity, drug use, prostitution, strong sexual themes and humor, pervasive rough and crude language, several uses of profanity and obscene gestures. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
