MOVIE MADNESS #33: COUGARS INC.

Kyle Gallner stars as Sam, a troubled senior who keeps getting bounced around from high school to high school. A sympathetic headmaster (James Belushi) takes pity on him and tries to help him stay in school. But when his parents can’t pay his tuition, Sam begins to panic.

He gets drunk and has an affair with an older woman (Cold Case’s Kathyrn Winnick) which he tells his friends about. Suddenly his friends want in on the action and Sam is the head of a Cougar escort service.

This low budget film also stars Denise Richards, Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland and Lost’s Rebecca Mader.

It’s predictable and very reminiscent of Risky Business except without all the fun. The movie does have its moments and Kyle Gallner’s performance is quite interesting. But the movie just isn’t daring and push the envelope as it should with such a controversial subject matter.
