Quotes

Stacy: I was celibate for so long, I started to feel like a can of kitchen cleanser: you know, sterile and gritty and abrasive. When we made love -- I don't know, I felt like a human again, a mammal, with breasts.

Casual Sex
9 July 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

Witty comedy that may not solve the dating problems of the 80's...but does offer a lighter look at what happens in the dark. Also, a slightly tamed look at the "DiceMan," which turns out to be his best screen work.
