Quote: "They don't have bars like this in Poland. It was so
hard for me to describe to my mom what it was all about. She was like, 'What
do you mean you dance on the bar?' She had no idea. 'Are you a stripper?'
I'm like, 'No, Mom, I'm not playing a stripper!' She finally got it after
seeing the trailer, which is running in Poland. But I'm not worried about
her seeing the movie; in fact, she came to the premiere."
