Don't EVER trust the blurb on the back of the box!
This movie is SO not what I expected...
The film is very slow, probably in part because these actors seem like they don't want to be there...They all seem bored, especially Hopper. One can imagine that the ONLY reason Hopper did this, is because the young female lead gets naked. This leads me to my last point. Marley Shelton, the Wendy Peppercorn of the kiddie flick "The Sandlot", plays the role as a bad girl who doesn't know how to be bad. The affair in the movie is supposedly the characters first. However, given the way that she plays out the lifeless sex scenes(3 of them), it will probably be her last affair...Since she apparently sucks at it. Also, the setup leads you to believe that you'll see skin. Um, you won't. The sex scenes are nothing that can't be shown on NYPD BLUE, after some silly grunting and moaning is muted.
