In isn’t she too old for that? news, LisaRaye McCoy, 45, stars in Lapdance as a stripper. Also dancing at what must be called the Geriatric Palace, are Nia Peeples, 51, and Carmen Electra, 41. I don’t frequent strip clubs but I’m guessing patrons prefer their dancer a little less long in the tooth. LisaRaye is rumored to be dating Bishop Noel Jones and if true I’m sure this won’t sit well with the congregation.

An aspiring actress makes a pact with her fiance to take a job as an exotic dancer to care for her cancer stricken father. Once the pact the couple made is broken, there lives are changed forever.
Lynn Whitfield, Stacey Dash and Obba Babatunde also appear in this movie.
