Trivia

When the film was originally released on October 14, 1994, in North America, it was banned in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan (the only place it was banned). When asked in an interview about it, Dan Aykroyd quipped; "I guess they just don't have sex in Saskatchewan." It was finally released a mere week after its original release date (October 21, 1994) to Saskatchewan audiences. See more »

Goofs

After Detective Shelia has asked for Elliot and he comes to her room, Elliot is telling her he wants to leave to go to the race. The leaves hanging behind Shelia appear and disappear with each camera change. As she sits down, you can see it's a vine hanging down to the wardrobe handle but the length changes as the scene plays out. See more »

Is it honestly trying to be an erotic comedy?
23 October 2005 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Completely misbegotten adaptation of Anne Rice's book about two cops (Dan Aykroyd and Rosie O'Donnell, a screen-teaming which should've been a hoot) working undercover at an S&M resort to capture a ring of crooks. Garry Marshall directed in a shamefully sloppy manner, without a clue as to how a general audience would feel about this kind of material; his narrative is so clogged with smarmy activity and failed gimmicks (like a voice-over from O'Donnell that is both unfunny and unnecessary) that the picture self-destructs even before the opening credits have finished! Highly unpleasant dud was a critical and commercial turkey, although O'Donnell has gotten mileage out of it by making "Exit to Eden" jokes at her own expense.
