"The Last Prostitute" is a mildly engaging drama that would find a better audience as an "ABC Afterschool Special" than as a prime-time movie (9 tonight) on Lifetime, a cable channel geared to women.
It's a coming-of-age story of two teen-age boys who are growing -- but in opposite directions. Wil Wheaton ("Stand By Me") plays Danny Wainwright, who ditches summer camp to travel cross-country in search of a legendary prostitute. He has been told all sorts of tall tales about the hooker, and the tales grow as he and buddy Burt Jackson (David Kaufman) trek by car, truck and foot from Ohio to Texas to satisfy their hormonal urges.
They are disappointed to find that Loah, played by Brazilian-born actress Sonia Braga, is now fortyish, retired from her call-girl days and the owner of a horse-breeding farm.
