A young writer named Elisabeth (unseen except for a voice-over) decides to write her newest book on the world's oldest profession: prostitution. Based in Los Angeles, Elisabeth travels the world interviewing dozens of prostitutes ranging from call-girls, streetwalkers, even male and female gigolos. While Elisabeth is away, her neighbor Rebecca (Denise Richards), an anthropology grad student, is drawn herself into the profession by her call-girl neighbor Adrianna (Daryl Hannah) whom steers her to her top client Pierre (Joaquim de Almeida).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A shallow film."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Whore isn't titillating enough to appeal to the raincoat crowd nor weighty enough to warrant serious appraisal."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Whore, directed by the Spanish filmmaker who uses the pseudonym Luna, is a tedious, not-at-all titillating exploitation film."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Times
"Is there anything remotely new left to be said about the world's oldest profession? Perhaps, but Spanish director Maria Lidon's glossy film, which sets sleekly staged interviews with European prostitutes within a fictional story, never finds the words."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The subjects can be amusing, chilling, or tragic -- but in the end, they offer few surprises."
‑ Leslie Camhi, Village Voice
"Director Russell is gifted with an eye for the extreme, but sometimes he gets ahead of himself, thinking that odd camera angles and crude delivery will save a threadbare plot."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
