Editorial Reviews

Living in a rundown Pittsburgh neighborhood, four lifelong friends scraping by in low-paying, dead-end jobs come up with a plan to get rich. Inexperienced as they are, the guys soon find themselves running a full-scale prostitution operation...very successfully. Propelled into the kinds of money and lifestyle one could only imagine, they're about to learn where the road leads when you're in way over your head. Featuring a standout cast with Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, Mission: Impossible) as a bemused drug dealer, Bijou Phillips (Made for Each Other), Daniel London (Minority Report), Alexandra Breckenridge (TVs Ex List) and Danny Masterson (That `70s Show), The Bridge to Nowhere takes you on a dark and dangerous adventure!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bridge to Nowhere March 19, 2010
Format:DVD
Four young 20-something men from the rough Upper North Side of Pittsburgh. They are stuck in dead-end jobs and struggle with dysfunctional family lives. The guys, inspired by the images of pop culture and the desire to break away from the neighborhood, regularly scheme to make extra money by running minor underground activities, including: sports booking, poker tournaments and house parties. One night during an evening out the four young men stumble across the "new neighbors", two independent prostitutes, Jasper and Candice, who end up inspiring a new business idea. Trapped in her own existence, Jasper, agrees to join forces with the young men to create, quite accidentally, what turns out to be an empire that launches each of them into financial riches. Along the way each character battles their own demons regarding the choices they have made In the end, however, their world comes crashing down on them in grandiose fashion. It's the city of bridges, where water separates the haves and have-nots, the bridge they sought so desperately to cross ultimately ends up being The Bridge To Nowhere. This isn't a bad movie but it is often a very silly one. Give it points for trying to be more than a typical exploitation movie. At the same time its hard not to take points away for it not hitting the mark. But at the same time the various bits of the movie does not mesh and you're left with disappointment at the movie not being better. Worth a rental.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Money Rise - Faster Downfall.. August 30, 2009
Format:DVD
Bridge to Nowhere is a well written story by Chris Guitierrez and directed by Blair Underwood. The main characters are played by Ving Rhames, Bijou Phillips, Danny Masterson, Ben Crowley, and Daniel London. Ving Rhames steals the show as he usually does in most of his movies.

Four childhood friends who grew up poor in Pittsburgh come up with a get rich hustle. They want to be pimps in a unique sense. Their operation runs like a call girl business. They not only want to sell sex, but crack too. They start with two girls who really show them how the business should go. It made me wonder why did they need the guys, they could have functioned without the guys pimping them. Then enters Ving Rhames' character who is the drug supplier. All is well until one of the girls is murdered. As usual among criminals, when the heat is on, things start to fall apart and the weakest link spills the beans. Friends turn on friends and it becomes business - not personal.

The action and drama that unfolds after the murder makes for a great movie. If you enjoyed this, you will enjoy similar movies:
Bluehill Avenue , Sugar Hill, Hoodlum, New Jack City.

4.0 out of 5 stars Realism spoilt by Hollywood treatment. March 11, 2013
By A. Tay
Format:DVD
AT times, it seems like the show was glamorizing drugs and prostitution
But in the end, greed took a heavy toll on the 4 guys who decided to become pimps (and made 7.3 million in one year but lost it all)

The generally successful attempts at making this show real were marred by the typical Hollywood treatment - dramatic music at the end and the distant wailing of sirens and cop-car radio despatch when the action was all over

1.0 out of 5 stars The DVD did not play February 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD will play for five minutes and then stop playing. I had to advance the DVD to get it to play again for another five minutes. Then it will stop playing and I advance it again. Then over and over I had to repeat this in order to play the DVD.
