The Client List features a great performance by Jennifer Love Hewitt and a whole lot of prurient guilty pleasure. It's a perfect chick popcorn film--and because of The Client List's subject matter, more than a few men will enjoy it too. The Client List is based on a true story, which manages to give Hewitt's character, Samantha, some sympathy amid the silliness. Samantha is a former Texas homecoming queen, the purtiest girl in her small hometown, who wed Rex (Teddy Sears), a former high-school football star. And Samantha's mama, Cassie, is played by Cybill Shepherd in a very canny and welcome supporting role.

The Client List opens with Samantha and Rex facing some serious financial hardships in the recession, with three small children to support and Rex's inability to work (which is never really explained). As the financial noose threatens to tighten around this all-American family, Samantha decides her only solution is to take a job at the local massage parlor. Yes, that kind of massage parlor. It's never quite clear why Samantha doesn't consider barista, say, or cashier instead of prostitute as her recession career, but that's part of the fun of The Client List. When the police crack down, as they eventually always do, Samantha must weigh turning in the client list of the title--which could change the landscape of her small town forever. Hewitt really does give a good performance; she's lovely and even believable in the sometimes-absurd plot. The Client List may not win awards, but it's absolutely compelling and thoroughly enjoyable watching. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

Sexy. Seductive. Scandalous. The sensational first season of the provocative hit drama stars Jennifer Love Hewitt (TV’s “Ghost Whisperer”) in her hottest role ever. Committed to supporting her family, Texas housewife Riley Parks (Hewitt) takes a job at the neighboring town’s massage spa. She’s stunned to discover that her female co-workers offer “extra” services not on the massage menu. With the support of her cunning new boss (Emmy® winner Loretta Devine) and the love of her oft-married mother (3-time Golden Globe® winner Cybill Shepherd), Riley now leads two starkly different lives: struggling single mom and enterprising businesswoman with a scandalous secret.

Format:DVD
In the world of Lifetime movies, there are two basic genres. ONE: A woman triumphing over hardship, adversity, or abuse in a tough, but life affirming, "based on real incidents" TV docudrama. And TWO: The prurient "ripped from the headline" scandal or crime story that borrow from real cases and wallow in distasteful dramatic recreations. 2010's "The Client List" is a film that has the lucky distinction of representing both of these types in its tawdry tale of a wife and mother turned prostitute. You have a certain expectation, or at least I do, when I approach such material. While most Lifetime movies aren't particularly good, they can have a camp appeal that I appreciate. And as such, "The Client List" has some horrendous moments that rival the best in bad TV! But "The Client List" stands out in another way, as well. Its lead, Jennifer Love Hewitt, was actually nominated for a Golden Globe for this epic!

I won't bag on Hewitt, she's a likable performer, and there is a role of hers from 2010 that might deserve award attention. Unfortunately it's not for this--it's for her dramatic guest turn on "SVU" which might be one of the best things she's done in years! No, Hewitt isn't the fundamental problem of "The Client List"--it's the script. When we meet Hewitt, she and her husband are off to see the bank about getting a loan extension. They've hit on hard times with 3 kids and are minutes away from having their home foreclosed. They both sex it up (really!) to get the deferral from the evil banker. Seriously the first 15 minutes of "The Client List" with this scene, as well as the interaction with Hewitt's mama Cybill Shepherd, are so silly--it's enough to set women (and Texas) back 20 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Love JLW March 1, 2011
Format:DVD
I may just be part female, because for some reason I love the LifeTime movies. Especially when you have gorgeous and great actress' like JLH who can draw you in and make you feel what she feels.

She didnt want to become a prostitute. She was against it from the very start and turned down the job, but the gas station scene was the straw that broke the camels back. She even cried when she called the massage parlor back saying she'd come in tomorrow. She clearly hated the job from the start, but when you cant afford gas, about to lose the house, go from 2 income family to 0 income and 3 kids to raise....wow you get desperate. I think JLH played the role great. Even when going through the affects of cocaine, she did a good job. I watched his movie online but will add it to my collection.

Too much like a soap opera for me. I would prefer it to be a little more R rated but then again I'm a man. The ladies I know love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series June 26, 2012
I am a fan of Jennifer Love Hewitt, so this may be a little biased. I love the story line, the setting and the characters. The show exhibits how a young woman faces one of life's biggest hurdles in her own way...You find yourself rooting for her even though you may not be rooting for what she is doing... I look forward to every episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show! June 3, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I had seen the previews for this show while watching Army Wives multiple times and finally decided to give it a try! I absolutely love it!! It is such a good drama, a little raunchy, but not near the way they portray it in the commercials (it is not nasty or anything by any means!), and has multiple twists and turns to keep you glued!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie but not as good as the tv show June 23, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the t.v. Show on lifetime and this movie was not as good as the show. However there are two complete story lines that make them different. I still think this movie was good and I am glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome ! April 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
I usually am partial to sci fi but this series demands some attention It has a very dynamic plot structure and is well thought out. Jennifer Love Hewitt totally shines in this along with the supporting cast. It stirs up all kinds of emotions in me regarding relationships, life etc - very powerful.

It lacked gusto. Overall, a decent little story, but it had quite a feel of a movie made for regular TV. It is not a blockbuster hit. Save your money.
