Trivia

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 »

Anne Rice Novel Watered Down
9 June 1999 | by (Stockton, California) – See all my reviews

Exit to Eden is really a movie with two plots. The first: combat photographer Elliot Slater travels to the sex-fantasy island of Eden to confront his aberrant sexual inclinations and, while on the island, begins a romance with Eden's head mistress, Mistress Lisa. The second plot: Detectives Fred Lavery and Sheila Kingston also travel to Eden pursuing supercriminals Nina and Omar, who are also on Eden to kill Elliot and retrieve the pictures he has taken of them. This is a well made movie with some laughs, sex, and bubbly romance.

Exit to Eden is Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, mild language, brief gore, and some violence.
