Those who would pay to see Heather Graham read a telephone book...
29 November 1999 | by (St. Albans,VT) – See all my reviews

...will pretty much get their chance by renting this video. The story, what there is of it, concerns a young woman in an uncomfortable living situation and a sexually jaded man with a dying father (Nickles), who are able to talk in a conversational voice over a 300 mile or so chasm. This was a production that did not cost the studio very much - the two leads almost never had to share the same shot together. The rest of the movie consists of a couple of dreary sex scenes (no, Heather is not included) and Graham and Nickles having short supposedly meaningful conversations with their parents. While I find Ms. Graham as alluring as the next guy, I suspect most viewers, like me, will find this movie a handy nonchemical substitute for Sominex.
