Fading Gigolo

image description


Fioravante, at his friend Murray's suggestion, enters into the world's oldest profession, and ends up finding something he didn't know he was looking for. The seed of this scheme is planted when Murray's beautiful dermatologist Dr. Parker (Sharon Stone) mentions she's looking for a man to participate in a ménage à trois with her and her equally gorgeous friend Selima (Sofía Vergara). Contending with the recent closure of his bookshop, Murray recognizes the financial potential of this proposal and sets about convincing Fioravante to consummate the deal.
