Comedian Keith Lowell Jensen decided to find out how hard it really is to make money as a panhandler.

A disgusting display of white privilege. How nice for some ignorant frat boys to go slumming and get to film it. Even better that these kids take a breezy, snarky, mocking view of poverty the likes of which they're so far removed from they don't even know how offensive this is. I wish people like this would stop playing dress-up about serious social issues that real people actually suffer from.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

It had a few moments where is skirted on the world of actual panhandlers, but this movie was largely a cop-out. All his costumes made it look like he had a job, so it didn't seem like he experienced the real thing first-hand. Disappointing.
