Set in the fictional, suburban, Midwestern town of Middleton, MILK MONEY asks the question: What would three boys need most in their lives while struggling with the undeniably confusing and frustrating time of puberty? Regrettably, the answer is: to see a naked women. Pooling their resources, they travel to the city to pay a prostitute to undress for them, which they achieve. When their bicycles are stolen, she gives them a ride home and meets the father of one of the boys. Wanting a replacement for a mother he never knew, one boy begins a campaign to get Dad and the prostitute married to each other.
MILK MONEY is a tasteless movie filled with erroneous and presumptuous ideas about what twelve-year-olds today are thinking. The filmmakers have tried to make a positive statement against prejudice and even attempt to discourage teenage sex. The end result is a father who, in the blink of an eye, will do just the opposite of his advice to his son and a prostitute who shows no emotional ill effects of a life she has lived for a decade. MILK MONEY is marred not only by foul language, pornography, partial nudity, and a hint at evolution as fact, but also by an ideology that is neither consistent, biblical nor practical.
