great fun for the voyeur at heart
20 February 2005 | by (Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

Great viewing, and good clean fun! (well not so clean fun) Being a guy with more than a little voyeurism in him, I couldn't stop watching. It is not a great movie by literary standards, but a captivating and comedic look into the life of a voyeur.

This film handles adult mater well without being graphic. So it's a safe movie to watch with your girlfriend. Just don't expect her to like it as much as you will. I can't imagine this film ever being so out of date that it wouldn't be a fun viewing, but by todays standards, a very tame film. Maybe it's time for someone to do a remake.

I loved it, and if you like films like "The Body Double", and "Sea of Love" I'm sure you'll love it too. I'd love to own a copy of it, just so I could share it with others.
