Not the most wretched movie ever made, but close
11 March 2002 | by (Columbia, South Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

This film can be considered significant only as a tribute to Norman Mailer's monumental ego. It is a total bore, and there is hardly anything memorable about it. The only thing that is memorable is a scene in which Rip Torn unexpectedly bites Mailer on the ear, hard enough to draw blood. This causes Mailer and Torn to come out of character and have a real confrontation, in which Beverly Bentley, Mailer's wife at the time, inserts herself. Other than that, completely forgettable.
