Trivia

The catering van in the dinner scene reads Arkoff and Corman, Industrial Caterers, a reference to American International Pictures producer Samuel Z.

Quotes

Harry Archer: What made her grow like that?
Dr. Victor Loeb: You menctioned that she began growing when she got angry. Clearly it's stress related. The blood tests show that her hormone levels are abnormally high.
Harry Archer: Congratulations, Doctor. You've just discovered a new kind of PMS.

Loved this ironic, post feminist film
18 August 2002 | by (western Canada) – See all my reviews

Very funny B flick. Tried a bit to hard to stay a B movie but a wonderful lark of hit you over the head metaphor of a woman "growing into her power". Ms Hanna was the right choice for this transformative awakening.

I'd live in Nancy Archer's pocket any day!
