    Watch: Porn Isn't So Fun In Trailer For 'About Cherry' With James Franco, Heather Graham & Dev Patel

    When making a film about a seedier career path – for instance, stripping in Steven Soderbergh’s excellent summer fling “Magic Mike” – it’s important to approach the topic with a delicate and nuanced touch.
