Rosie O'Donnell's weight noticeably changes in certain scenes. This is because the studio ordered several scenes to be shot before releasing the film, which was several months after principle photography had been completed. See more »
The morning after Lisa spends the night with Elliot, she is sitting on her balcony drinking tea. She puts down the tea cup, then a moment later it jumps back into her hand. See more »
This film tiptoes around its "controversial" subject (sadomasochism), and Dana Delany is terribly miscast and always unconvincing as a dominatrix -for example Iman, who co-stars here, would be a much better choice for the role of Mistress Lisa. But, for a mainstream Hollywood picture, this is still pretty daring and unusual. As others have said, the many different genres and styles employed here inevitably clash, and make the film inconsistent - but at least it's never boring. Not for kids. (**1/2)
