Storyline

A beautiful woman decides to play a prank on a random man from the street by kidnapping him at gunpoint to her house. After forcing him to strip, she sends him on his way naked. He reports the incident to the authorities, but they either don't believe him, or, if they do, can't understand why he would consider it a crime - a reaction he also gets from his friends and family.

Tasteless and improbable premise
7 November 2003 | by (Orange County, CA) – See all my reviews

There is some merit to the idea of examining the question, "what if a woman were to rape a man," notwithstanding the fact that, unless the woman had some drug capable of inducing an uncontrollable erection, such an incident is physiologically unlikely.

Unfortunately, while this film did manage to bring up the question, it did so mainly for the sake of a few tasteless laughs, which managed to overshadow anything meaningful it might have tried to say.
