Did You Know?


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 »

I really liked this movie.
28 September 2002 | by (chicago, ill) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. It is very hard to find since it is out of production. It is about Roslyn, played very well by Alicia Silverstone,who is a young newly-wed with marital problem. She goes out wtih her friend, played by Jennifer Blanc, to a dance and meets bad boy, Joey, played by Matthew Flint. Joey is no good, and is married himself, and this affair is hopeless from the beginning. What I like about this movie is that Alicia is EXTREMELY believeable when she is on the beach with Joey and she tells him to stop his advances, but she also wants him to continue. She whispers desperately, out a different era in American high school dating, for him to stop, "someone will see us", etc. The choice of soft backround music from the 50's really set the mood, also. Why this movie has had so little attention, and why your other writers do not seem to forcast the eventual greatness of Alicia Silverstone from this movie is beyond me. Of course, now the only edition of this movie is in PALS, in German.
