Average flick - not for kids!

I thought this movie was okay, I watched it for Brittany Snow who did an excellent job in the film. Amanda (Brittany) appears as a happy-go-lucky but troubled niece of a gambler named Taylor who has his own share of problems. When he hears that Amanda is prostituting in Las Vagas, he convinces his wife that he will find her and get her into rehab. He succeeds in finding her, but things take a wild turn when he's constantly exposed to gambling, drugs & alcohol that gets himself in even deeper trouble. The ending feels a little unfinished. I think the story could've been better. Language is strong, lots of cursing in every form. Sexual content is also pretty strong with nudity, sexual acts, strip clubs, graphic discussions, prostitution. Violence has guns used by children (no actual shootings), a man gets beat up by a pimp and gets injured, couples cheat on each other, spitting and slapping, lots of arguments. Lots of drug and alcohol references, ecstasy is talked about and then taken, buying pot, discussions about drugs. Alcohol is used in gambling joints and bars, a man gets drunk. This is not appropriate material for those under 17. The story doesn't really solve anything so no positive messages here.
