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 »

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 »

Anne Rice's novel "Exit To Eden" dealt with a jaded S & M dominatrix who unexpectedly fell in love with one of her submissives and goes to New Orleans to do a little soul searching. Garry Marshall's film version deals with Elliot Slater who travels to the S & M fantasy island of Eden to deal with his sexual fantasies. There he meets camp commander Mistress Lisa and the two fall in love and travel to New Orleans so Lisa can see where her mother grew up. This film was viciously panned by critics and audiences, but I think it is one of the 90's best movies. If you like spicy, sexual, funny stories, then Exit To Eden might just hit the spot for you.
