Pretty good story line, but you should never watch it
Great movie, and story line. But Andy Griffith being a sick old man, it just goes over the edge. I cannot believe Andy Griffith would be so desperate for money to agree to this act.. He says horny, erection, sucks, talks about oral sex, its disgusting.

The story line is great though, talking about relationships, and "game" landing "chicks" all that, is funny, but its a pretty terrible movie.

I don't really know what else to say.

The story ends well, but I wont spoil it.

I just cannot believe any of these actors would really do this because it is so disgusting.

Its almost a creepy type movie
