Inspired by a true story - tree young men with disabilities (Grant Rosenmeyer, Hayden Szeto, Ravi Patel) flee their overbearing parents on a road trip to a brothel in Montreal that caters to people with disabilities, in order to lose their virginity and embrace their independence Gabourey Sidibe stars as their jaded nurse driver, Janeane Garofalo and C.S. Lee also star as concerned parents hot on their trail.
This film follows 3 disabled guys looking to get away from their parents and get special treatment from a brothel that caters for their needs.
So that's the basic premise but it avoids any crudeness and instead focuses on the relationship between the characters and their driver.
It has some quirky light laughs early on and then goes a bit more serious later on.
It's a decent film that goes along at a nice pace but I think it could of done with a bit more development of the characters. By the end scene it didnt quite make the impact they were aiming for.

Rip roaring adventure of a different kind
- Come as You Are review by SG
this film surprised me. it turned into a road trip like no other film i have seen - and with snappy dialogue too. i love films based on a true story and this one is unique in that it is a 'brothel-mission' with a difference. the 3 lads and their driver all gel well after a 'settling in' period and go off to enjoy themselves. the lead, Scotty, is also an MC and is often spitting bars to anyone who will hear it. its a bit slow in the middle but overall a rip roaring ride into hedonism. the real character that this film is based on is also in the film - Asta Philpot - and you can see him in the end credits where he laughs his head off. the jokes are crude and intense...just how they are in real life. give this a whirl and see how they all lived for themselves just for one weekend...
