Goofs

When the husband is getting a haircut early in the film, you can hear him talking about how is hair is very important, but at the bottom right of the screen, his lips are not moving. There is a change in the audio tone that is subtle, but noticeable as the dialogue was most likely subbed in after filming. See more »

A Piece of History?
14 March 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Take a typical 80's B-comedy, and give the two male leads to two actors who would go on to awards and world fame.

Believe me or not, Depp and Morrow take two stock characters and make the material seem that much better; suddenly Jack and Ben hold the film together, rather than just reacting to everything within a narrow character description. Okay, so it's not art, but it's interesting from a film education perspective, if nothing else.

The script and direction aren't bad either, for a 1980's sex romp. Would have liked to see the director go on to better material. Ah, well.

7/10, for effort and sheer amusement value.
