A Strange and Twisted Tale
1 September 2000 | by (Bayside, New York) – See all my reviews

This was a rather disgusting movie is alot of ways, but at the same time, I think it was really wonderful. It was a gross-out way to show men the extent they will go to in preservation of their sex drive or lack thereof. Richard Harris is wonderful as the man who's losing everything at the same time, and goes to the most extreme measures to hold on to his fortunes in business and romance. The sex fantasy sequences are stupid and gratuitous, it could have been a much better film without them. I don't want to give too much away but Harris' performance as "Jason" is a tour de force. Jennifer Dale is excellent as "Laura", the young girl who would love him no matter what.
