For all you Woody Allen haters out there, this might help bring him back into your good graces. Maybe.

It's been three years since John Turturro's last film ("Passione"), and you probably didn't see it. He's now back in the director's chair for "Fading Gigolo," which has a stellar cast -- the movie stars Turturro, Allen, Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara, Liev Schreiber, and Vanessa Paradis, among others.

The plot is just as it sounds: someone's becoming a gigolo. Main character Fioravante (Turturro) decides to become a professional Don Juan as a way of making money to help his cash-strapped friend, Murray (Allen). With Murray acting as his "manager," the duo quickly finds themselves caught up in the complicated world where love intersects with money.
