16 November 1998 | by (southern california) – See all my reviews

This movie was two things, 1- an erotic mystery with a good plot, and 2- a good mystery with two extremely fruit filled sex scenes that screamed out "get naked". Both were very effective, yes the sex scenes where kind of out of place, but who can argue with an erotic thriller. After the first sex scene I began to wonder if this was all a dream, or if it was a test to see if I would get naked and rub cooking oil all over myself and run down the street at 4:12 am. So I just froze for 15 minutes straight, without blinking once, and then when I felt it was safe, I crawled under my bed and went to sleep until morning, when the dream was over. But if it was a dream, why was I naked and covered with cooking oil? -** stars
