Jennifer Jason Leigh,
A 16 year old girl takes up with a charming young man who quickly shows his colors when he beats a friend simply for walking with her and then goes totally ballistic after she tries to break up with him.
Ivy ('Drew Barrymore'), a sexy teen who lives with her aunt, moves in with a reclusive teen (Gilbert) and slowly works her way into the lives of her adopted family. The mother (Ladd) is sickly and can't sexually satisfy her husband (Skerritt) any more, and to the daughter's horror, Ivy begins seducing her father. Written by

In the scene where Sylvie breaks the espresso machine, spilling coffee grounds on the floor; the maid, Iris, uses the vacuum to clean it up. We hear a vacuum sound effect, and the camera focuses on the machine but the vacuum is clearly not turned on because the vacuum bag does not inflate. See more »
She's definitely a turnoff - too overt. I mean, most girls don't fly through the air with their skirt around their waist.

This film, claimed to be a "Basic Instinct" meets "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle", is a big disappointment. There is no real storyline evident, just an idea that seems to have been given about fifteen minutes work. This is a Virginia Andrews style plot, but it just does not work. Not only is it incoherent, it jumps from one episode to the next and never pieces itself together or finds direction. And the characters are poorly developed, leaving the viewer caring less about what happens to them.
Barrymore is watchable, but the film is a tease as it doesn't deliver the promised sensuality.
