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.

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

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
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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic & Heartfelt January 31, 2011
First off, it's a Lifetime movie, so haters be gone!

Secondly, why Jennifer Love Hewitt is not a bigger star is beyond me. She's excellent in this movie and plays the part perfectly! The story is plausible (it's actually based on a true story) the writing is great and the pace and development are excellent.

Thirdly, I honestly think this is a great movie, with a good story, and a whole lot of heart. I loved it.

And lastly, if you love Lifetime movies, love Jennifer Love Hewitt or love both, than this movie is for you!

1.0 out of 5 stars There is nothing redeeming about this show March 12, 2014
By heather
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I had to watch this series - I'm a CMT. It was as insulting as I thought it would be. Boo on all the women who contributed to it in any way Boo on all the men too. It barely passes as eyecandy and is so not worth watching. Should be stricken from the record for sure. Too bad everything lives on the internet and people are still profiting from it.

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 Compassionate and humorous portrayal November 25, 2012
A beautiful movie starring the lovely and highly talented Jennifer Love Hewitt as Samantha Horton, a loving mother and wife, who faces loss of the family home and inability to pay for the bare necessities after both her and her husband lose their jobs.

Being a masseur by profession she applies to a local massage parlour for a job and only finds out afterwards that it is a brothel for high society men. She walks out but is forced to return to the job after she cannot pay for gas and after her husband's near breakdown at the families imminent loss. she is crying when she phones to return to the job and vomits after her first treatment of a client.
But later she becomes the most popular girl in the business and hiding her profession from her freidns and family brings home heaps of money and is able to give her family what they need.

Later of course when the business is bust due to the machinations of a politician among to be re-elected and a local church group, heartbreak will ensue
Samantha Horton is a beautiful woman both inside and out-the women who she works all are people with great big hearts. Jeniffer Love Hewitt plays the role with an endearing combination of both strength and vulnerability. Shows us that anyone can fall on desperate times and out of desperation woman can be driven to sell their bodies. Prostitutes are human beings, often with bigger hearts than many saints and we can all learn to judge people who have been through so much less harshly and find some compassion. the answer is to ensure no women have to do this.A society is nothing if it does not put at the very heart of its policy considerations, the welfare of the vulnerable in society. Not without humour-and with surprisingly no explicit sex scenes, this is a great movie
