Quotes

Eve Abergray: We had a fight. A horrible, horrible fight.
Ann Hecker: A physical fight?
Eve Abergray: He started torturing me. Bring me close and stopping and bring me close again. And then he stopped. And took his necktie and tied my hands together in front of me. He had a rope, which he'd strung over a rafter. And he put a chair under it and ordered me to stand on it. There's a noose on the rope, and... he... told me to put my neck into it. He took a polaroid of me. And the flash blinded me. But when I could see again he was behind...

Priceless!!!
19 November 1999 | by (Los Angeles CA) – See all my reviews

This is actually a rather dull film for the most part---the red herrings are preposterous and uninteresting and the sexuality never goes beyond cheap titillation. It hints at more interesting things and nine times out of ten it punks out at exploring those intriguing themes, going for the cheap thrill every opportunity. And it's not that thrilling, period.

But the ending is amazing. It kept me laughing for weeks after I'd seen the movie. So ludicrous and out of nowhere it comes off like a bad joke, or incomparable idiocy. It still makes me giggle every time I think about it. I can barely type right now.

See this movie for the last thirty minutes. It's worth it.
