Strapped for cash, handsome but middle-aged bookshop worker Fioravante decides to accept an offer of an unusual job from his friend Murray, who recently had a brainwave after his dermatologist and her friend admitted to wanting a new sexual experience with a stranger. Murray charged them a huge $1,000, offering the modest Fioravante the chance to be a male escort for a large paycheque while keeping a portion himself. After realising that he quite enjoys the experience of worshipping single and lonely women in the bedroom, Fioravante continues his exploits with Murray and ends up meeting a particularly shy woman named Avigal. Consumed by loneliness, Avigal seeks comfort and recognition, but just how deep does her solitude go?

Stars turned out in their hundreds at the funeral of 'Sopranos' star James Gandolfini. Among them were the show's creator David Chase, his onscreen sister Aida Turturro, the 55th Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, Julianna Margulies who appeared in 4 episodes of the mafia drama series and her 'The Good Wife' co-star Chris Noth.
Aida Turturro - The funeral service for Emmy award-winning Sopranos actor James Gandolfini at the Cathedral of St. John The Divine in New York City, NY, USA on June 27, 2013. Best known for his portrayal of mob boss Tony Soprano in the HBO TV series "The Sopranos", Gandolfini died of a heart attack at the age of 51 while on vacation with his family in Rome, Italy on June 19, 2013. His big screen credits include The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Zero Dark Thirty and Killing Them Softly - New York, NY, United States - Thursday 27th June 2013
Somewhere in all Turturro's chaos is a story about Nick Murder (James Gandolfini), a blue-collar schlub with a stolid wife, Kitty (Susan Sarandon), and a trio of slightly cracked daughters -- Constance, Baby, and Rosebud (Mary-Louise Parker, Aida Turturro, and Mandy Moore, respectively) -- who function partially as a junior set of Furies but are mostly there to bash out songs in the backyard as part of the three-piece bubblegum garage band they've formed. In short: Nick's a two-timing bastard who's stepping out on the wife with Tula (the previously mentioned Irish hussy), a fact Kitty doesn't take to overly well, and numerous friends and family get dragged into their scuffle and forcing everyone to occasionally bust out in song.

The one-joke premise is this: seven friends in New York basically live their lives without ever really meeting. Instead, they talk on the phone. Dates are set, parties are planned, sex is had, even children are born -- but no one is there, in the physical sense.

Not much has come from Hogan since his days as Mick "Crocodile" Dundee. He has written and starred in many forgettable films over the past decade -- stuff like Almost an Angel, Lighting Jack, and Flipper -- and has even converted his Crocodile Dundee role into a spokesman for the Subaru Outback. Did anyone want or need another fish-out-of-water story about a hillbilly croc hunter trying to adapt to Big City life? With the keys to his Outback in hand, Hogan is back in the trademark hat, dishing out another tale of the simple Australian man mingling with that kooky, extravagant, and pompous American culture.

Somebody at Paramount Pictures must have owed Paul Hogan a humongous favor to green-light "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles." Before even seeing the movie, I could have told you it's 15 years too late for another sequel in this series.
But that's the least of the problems with this lifeless, asinine, staggeringly inept mess of haggard franchise gags, out-of-date pop culture japes and Hollywood backlot antics that are less realistic than the tour at Universal Studios.
The obscenely contrived plot follows Mick Dundee, girlfriend Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski) and their son Mikey (Serge Cockburn) to L.A. as Sue takes over the local newsroom of her dad's newspaper chain. The previous bureau chief died suspiciously while poking around the finances of a B-grade studio that cranks out money-losing action flicks for Eastern Europe. Could all these mean-looking toughs in ponytails and shark skin suits be -- oh, I don't know -- crooked?
