Product Description

The Client List features a great performance by Jennifer Love Hewitt and a whole lot of prurient guilty pleasure. It's a perfect chick popcorn film--and because of The Client List's subject matter, more than a few men will enjoy it too. The Client List is based on a true story, which manages to give Hewitt's character, Samantha, some sympathy amid the silliness. Samantha is a former Texas homecoming queen, the purtiest girl in her small hometown, who wed Rex (Teddy Sears), a former high-school football star. And Samantha's mama, Cassie, is played by Cybill Shepherd in a very canny and welcome supporting role.

The Client List opens with Samantha and Rex facing some serious financial hardships in the recession, with three small children to support and Rex's inability to work (which is never really explained). As the financial noose threatens to tighten around this all-American family, Samantha decides her only solution is to take a job at the local massage parlor. Yes, that kind of massage parlor. It's never quite clear why Samantha doesn't consider barista, say, or cashier instead of prostitute as her recession career, but that's part of the fun of The Client List. When the police crack down, as they eventually always do, Samantha must weigh turning in the client list of the title--which could change the landscape of her small town forever. Hewitt really does give a good performance; she's lovely and even believable in the sometimes-absurd plot. The Client List may not win awards, but it's absolutely compelling and thoroughly enjoyable watching. --A.T. Hurley

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Businesses Are Recession Proof--What's So Wrong With That? Jan. 3 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In the world of Lifetime movies, there are two basic genres. ONE: A woman triumphing over hardship, adversity, or abuse in a tough, but life affirming, "based on real incidents" TV docudrama. And TWO: The prurient "ripped from the headline" scandal or crime story that borrow from real cases and wallow in distasteful dramatic recreations. 2010's "The Client List" is a film that has the lucky distinction of representing both of these types in its tawdry tale of a wife and mother turned prostitute. You have a certain expectation, or at least I do, when I approach such material. While most Lifetime movies aren't particularly good, they can have a camp appeal that I appreciate. And as such, "The Client List" has some horrendous moments that rival the best in bad TV! But "The Client List" stands out in another way, as well. Its lead, Jennifer Love Hewitt, was actually nominated for a Golden Globe for this epic!

I won't bag on Hewitt, she's a likable performer, and there is a role of hers from 2010 that might deserve award attention. Unfortunately it's not for this--it's for her dramatic guest turn on "SVU" which might be one of the best things she's done in years! No, Hewitt isn't the fundamental problem of "The Client List"--it's the script. When we meet Hewitt, she and her husband are off to see the bank about getting a loan extension. They've hit on hard times with 3 kids and are minutes away from having their home foreclosed. They both sex it up (really!) to get the deferral from the evil banker. Seriously the first 15 minutes of "The Client List" with this scene, as well as the interaction with Hewitt's mama Cybill Shepherd, are so silly--it's enough to set women (and Texas) back 20 years. Hewitt seeks a job in this downturned economy, and before you can say "Swedish" or "Shiatsu"--she's turning tricks in a massage parlor.

SMALL SPOILERS: Hewitt wrestles with this decision periodically, but it's not with the soul crushing devastation you might anticipate. Hey, she's just a good wife and mother supporting her brood. She still cooks for the bake sale. She is super sweet to her clients--she cares! There isn't one moment, even descending into drug addiction, that we're meant to see Hewitt in a remotely negative light. She may have made a mistake, sure, but she's human--okay? Then when the world comes crashing down (you knew it was coming!), Hewitt gets by with a slap because she rats out all her clients that gave her the lifestyle that she that was charging for. The men are bad! She, and indeed the whole establishment, were just victims.

I make it sound so terrible, but it's exactly what I expected--so I can't be too hard. It's relatively entertaining nonsense. However, there is one scene near the end when the town's women confront Hewitt at her home. This sequence might be the most awkward and ridiculous thing I've seen all year. This scene, in itself, is SOOOOO BAAAD that I'm tempted to rate this one star on that alone. But, alas, at least it will cause me to always remember "The Client List" KGHarris, 1/11.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Love JLW March 1 2011
By David Santos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I may just be part female, because for some reason I love the LifeTime movies. Especially when you have gorgeous and great actress' like JLH who can draw you in and make you feel what she feels.

She didnt want to become a prostitute. She was against it from the very start and turned down the job, but the gas station scene was the straw that broke the camels back. She even cried when she called the massage parlor back saying she'd come in tomorrow. She clearly hated the job from the start, but when you cant afford gas, about to lose the house, go from 2 income family to 0 income and 3 kids to raise....wow you get desperate. I think JLH played the role great. Even when going through the affects of cocaine, she did a good job. I watched his movie online but will add it to my collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars There is nothing redeeming about this show March 12 2014
By heather - Published on Amazon.com

I had to watch this series - I'm a CMT. It was as insulting as I thought it would be. Boo on all the women who contributed to it in any way Boo on all the men too. It barely passes as eyecandy and is so not worth watching. Should be stricken from the record for sure. Too bad everything lives on the internet and people are still profiting from it.

Too much like a soap opera for me. I would prefer it to be a little more R rated but then again I'm a man. The ladies I know love it.
