Drew Barrymore failed to attend her first audition. Director, Katt Shea Ruben wanted Drew for the part of Ivy and arranged another audition which Drew Barrymore also failed to attend. After Katt Shea spoke to Drew's agent and told her she was no longer interested in her for the lead, she pleaded with Katt to give Drew another change. Drew ended up auditioning at Katt Shea Ruben's house not knowing that the director had already decided she had the job. See more »
A few scenes before the car accident, Ivy's injury is visible, but very light on her chest. Once the car accident occurs, the injury is in the same place, but much darker. See more »
A movie that's more about loneliness than it is an erotic thriller
I really enjoyed the two main characters in the movie - Cooper ( played by Sara Gilbert ) and Ivy ( Drew Barrymore is brilliant in this character ). The film focuses on there friendship and feeling alone as a teenager. I really liked the dialogue between the characters. Especially when Ivy meets Cooper's mother ( played by Cheryl Ladd ) and talks about her own mother and how she flinched every time she touched her and how she died long before she really did. It's just great. Ivy's loneliness soon starts to evaporate as she gains a mother in Chery Ladd, a friend in Sara Gilbert, but then she sets her eyes on Cooper's father ( played by Tom Skerrit ) and wants him in an intimate way. And this is where the movie starts to get erotic as she seduces her best friend's father. But Cooper is starting to see Ivy's evil intentions .....
