My overall impression

Wasn’t sure what to expect from this but I liked the title so I gave it a chance. Glad I did! It delivers everything it says in the description and then some! It’s a pretty twisted tale that features a dad who is VERY close to his daughters (and NOT in a good way) as he writes a play that they can all star in as long as they are willing to take off their clothes for their parts. In the end, they do the play and strip and the audience was given play money to throw at the girls and become a part of the play. The antagonist is the hapless boyfriend of one of the daughters who tries to stop the show from happening along with his friend. They come into conflict with his girlfriend’s ex, described as “the perfect man” and the son-in-law, who seems to have issues with his sexuality, his marriage, and his religion. But hell, everyone in this show hs problems from the dad who can’t keep his hands off his daughters to the perfect man who can’t sing to the friend who keeps trying to light up a joint. In the end we see the girls all strip (their is some minor nudity) until they are saved by an unlikely hero (I don’t want to give it away). Strong performances from Travis McHenry as the dad, Karl Wade as the boyfriend Will, Joshua Hensley as the son in law Barney, Jacob Wolber as the perfect man Jason, Michael Lutheran as the best friend Eddie, and all the daughters, Emily Claire Tisler, Amanda Rae Castruita (who dances several times!), Faith Hall, and Katie Aquino who performs her strip tease while nine months pregnant! The whole show is done as if it were a live television show and asks for audience participation. In the end, you may be someone who gets one of the special headshots from the show! They also show several commercial spots for over the top products that feature actress Heidi Kendrick is some of the show’s funniest moments!
