I saw this movie back in the fall 1996 - yes 96. I was part of the Test audience suckered in to the Sony Theater on 19th Street & Broadway here in NYC. After the movie was over we were given a survey so that we convey our thoughts about the movie.
It's been a while since I've seen it, but I remember the romance between the professor and B. Monkey to be totally unbelievable. Beatrice (Asia Argento) plays the enigmatic no-good juvenile delinquent punk who falls in love with a straight-laced school teacher.
In an attempt to wean Beatrice from her wicked ways, the couple moves out to the countryside. Beatrice plays the role of the good girlfriend but as expected, her no-good London pals (thugs) find her hiding out.
I usually like sappy love stories, but this one dragged... and dragged... and dragged on. This movie begs for action. The only exciting scene was the robbery she commits at the Jewerly store. After committing the felony she screams, "Wot's my name? B. Monkey!" It was all too corny.
Paul (Rupert Everett) was the funniest character. As usual, he plays a charming & witty gay character. If it wasn't for him I would have demanded my money back (yes, I know I got in for free - but I'll never get those 2 hours of my life back so why not some cash instead?)
