Nature played a real shit trick on me. I've got these instincts inside of me that are different from the others on this planet. When I see a pretty woman, I don't want to fuck. I want to hear the sounds she's makes when she's in pain.

This turned out to be a very sleazy movie. Everybody but Annabella Sciorra's character ("Ann Hecker") talks and acts like a pig. Actually, "Hecker" isn't of the highest character, herself, but at least she doesn't talk like trash. Too bad veterans actors Alan Alda and Jill Clayburgh have to join the sleaze crowd, although the latter certainly was no angel in her 1970s films. Anthony LaPaglia was ridiculously profane but that was normal for his movie characters. He only settled down in recent years when he began starring a television show.
Despite the gutter mentality of this story (it isn't just the language), the movie zips along after a slow start and kept your attention. However, it isn't anything memorable, nor recommended.
This was a different look for Sciorra: no New York City accent and a different hairstyle. I almost didn't know it was her. Jamey Sheridan, who now contributes to the hit TV show, "Law and Order: Criminal Intent," also stars, as does the always-strange John Leguizamo.
