What Ever Happened To … the kids from Milk Money?

‘Milk Money’ (1994) was a dubious kids comedy about three 11 year-olds who save up enough money to buy time with a prostitute.  Really.

The ‘family comedy’ follows the lads as they head to the city and procure the services of ‘V’ (Melanie Griffith) in the hopes of seeing her boobs.  After flashing the underage boys, and after various comic misunderstandings, she may or may not end up with one of their dads (Ed Harris).

It’s basically like ‘Pretty Woman’ but with an ever-looser grasp on the realities of life as an exploited sex-worker.

So what happened to those kids over the last 20 years?  Find out after the jump!

Beetlejuice’s Walk of Shame

There’s nothing more to this vid than a drunk guy waking up and quickly getting the f*** out of a strange place, but it perfectly captures that potent mixture of dread, confusion and shame so many of us can relate to.

Oh and the drunk guy is dressed as Beetlejuice.

BTW there’s a few comments saying the vid is fake – it’s not.  A few redditors know the guy and were even at the party in Michigan with him in 2010.  Pic after the jump!
