What a waste of time-- A supposed psychological-sexual-thriller that certainly isn't psychological, barely sexual and offers no thrills that I was aware of. "Mutual Needs" is the story of a sniveling idiot who spends his time playing video games at work and telling jokes that fall flat, yet who manages-- with the help of a too-good-to-be-true call girl-- to con his way into a $150,000 a year ! job with a former high school rival. If you've ever seen a movie where someone is not as they seem, then you already know the rest of the plot and needn't bother watching this bland dreck.
As far as casting-in-order-to-put-the-name-on-the-video-box goes, it should be noted that this movie features Dee Wallace-Stone who, mercifully, has only about four seconds of screen time. A bloated Richard Grieco (who gets top billing in the credits, mind you) has a few seconds more, including helping out in the pivotal turn-the-tables-on-the-psycho ending that such films as these feature.
If a storm knocks out all other channels other than the one airing this cinematic lightweight, read a book.
