"Yes, there are plenty of T&A if you are interested. Almost every pretty actresses in this movie appears topless at least once. But, without those scenes, it is still a good movie. A story about a group of prostitutes with different problems. A soon-to-be a bride who tried to hide her past. A mother who tried to be a role model for her daughter. A former actress who ran away from a pimp. Besides their professionals, one thing they have in common is hopes for a better life. The script is touching and the acting is great. It was very entertaining and gave me something to think about. Only one minor flaw is these prostitutes seem to be too nice and kind. Considering the problems they've been through, they still act like angels. Something that is hard to find even among well-educated people. It makes the movie less realistic to me. But overall it is still a movie that worth watching."

This is a really good pilot, but in the end you're left wanting more. The problem is that so far I haven't been able to find any series box set from Showtime. This could be described as what you'd get if you mixed "The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas" with "Desperate Housewives" without any of the singing. In fact most of the hookers seem to be around the same age group as Desperate Housewives, and a lot alike in appearance. Only these women's trials and tribulations are around prostitution while attempting to have some sense of a normal existance in the other areas of their lives. After watching HBO's "Cathouse" this seems to be fairly close to the actual business of a brothel.
I only have two problems with this version. First is that even though this is rated as an "R" version it really seems edited for prime time TV. Some of the dubing over the swearing is almost comical.....My other problem is that this really must be a pilot because there's so many different stories going on, and when it closes there's all these open ends to all these individual stories.
If you're going to buy this then I'd look for the uncut version because the "R" version seems to have a lot missing. On the other hand I wouldn't recommend even getting this until they make the series available...or at least as much as they were able develope ..."
Round Up a Good Time at this 'Ranch'

"When I first bought this film I thought it was a documentary. I was a little suprised that it was a work of fiction, but to my suprise it was still quite entertaining. This is a comical look at the lives of various hookers at a bordello in Reno. It was refreshing to see that women wrote, produced and directed this movie. It is not an exploitation of women, but an honest look at why they do what they do, and the courage it takes to stop and try to do something else. You get to know these women as real people and you start to care about them. They remind you of friends or family members that through simular situations, they could have ended up there. Now gentlemen, if you are looking for boobies, then don't despair. [...] but try to look beyond the peaks and valleys. There is real emotion here, and some powerful messages about society. Actually, this could almost be a pilot for a sitcom. It has the feel of "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore." It's that good!"
The Ranch is a must see!

"Want an enticing, fun(ny) insightful, tug at your heartstrings kinda flick to see? Get The Ranch! Beautifully shot. Beautiful girls. Beautiful story that leaves you wanting more... Grit laced in hope. Humanity laced in reality... People doing what they have to do... I thought Lisa Melamed's poignant story is beautifully directed by Sex In The City's Susan Seidelman. Classic beauty Jessica Collins shares a moment/scene with Nicki Micheaux that is NOT to be missed. Paige Moss delivers a character that disturbs brilliantly. You feel Bonnie Root's character's broken dreams, and Samantha Ferris' simply wanting to be a good parent... All held together with Amy Madigan's nine millimeter! The Ranch is a MUST see!"
