“Now listen here, you jive-ass dude. The price of meat has gone up everywhere.”

Willie Dynamite is a cocky pimp who wants to be number one in the prostitution business. But he’s getting undermined by competing pimps, corrupt police and a woman from the past who wants to get Willie’s hookers out of the business (and also Willie himself).

A decent story about morale and ultra capitalism. Some really weird, and good down to earth characters. It might be a bit too polished, but still a good story with a happy ending!
