Trivia

Ralph Bakshi wrote the screenplay before he became famous with the intention to produce it as his first feature film. It was originally titled "When I Catch Her I'll Kill Her." The studio Bakshi approached found the material to be "too hot." According to Bakshi, "A story about women cheating on their husband was too far out at that time for some reason." Years later, Bakshi handed in the same script, with a few changes, and it was approved by the studio that eventually produced the film. See more »

An Odd Film About Infidelity
28 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unhappily married couple Roslyn (Alicia Silverstone) and Michael (Jared Leto) lead separate affairs that lead to violent repercussions for all.

This was one of the last films from American International Pictures, produced by Lou Arkoff and Debra Hill. The director was Ralph Bakshi, who had made his name with "Fritz the Cat" and "Heavy Traffic".

Some credit should be given for the casting, as both leads have now gone on to bigger things and most likely few people have ever seen or even heard of this picture (hardly a gem).

What is most strange is the morality of the narrative. Cheating is not so much a bad thing in itself (according to this film), but bad when things turn violent with the competition. So, I guess, if married women choose better men to have affairs with, the whole thing is no big deal...
