    Pretty Maids All in a Row

    ★★★★

    In Pretty Maids All in a Row, Rock Hudson plays Tiger McDrew, a high school football coach and Assistant Principal who's mustache definitely lives up to the seventies porn star name. For fun, Tiger likes to routinely hook up with select members of the female student body (aka. Pretty Maids), and who can blame either of them?

I honestly didn't know what to expect going into this one, but I definitely didn't expect what I actually witnessed. The entire cast was phenomenal, especially Jennifer Lawrence and Michelle Pfeiffer, with the latter surprisingly stealing the show whenever…
