The Last Porno Theater

The Last Porno Theater - Nick Cato Even though Herschell Schwartzbaum inherited the whack palace known as the Metro theater, he still had to start at the bottom and work his way up the ranks. Starting out as a mop boy. Not a glamourous job to begin with, but when you’re working in a jack shack, there is not enough Clorox in the world to make that palpable. Hard work pays off though and now Herschell is the proud owner of the last porno theater on 42nd street. Fighting gentrification as well as he and his two loyal employees can, they suddenly find themselves in a world of tit. A violation of NYC building codes for sure. To top it off, one of his employees has gone M.I.A. and corporate clowns from the city want to buy him out and are willing to go to extreme measures to do so. The fight is on.

I am surprised that I liked this one as much as I did. It was not at all what I was expecting and started off very, very good. Lots of laughs and wtf moments to be had. Toward the end though it felt like it lost its steam and finished without much hoorah nor explanation. Too bad too, because even with the premise as it was, it still was going strong until 80% or so. Maybe Mr. Cato just got tired. Felt like it anyway.
