Marty Barnes:Hi. Listen, before I untie you, while I have your attention, I just wanted to take a minute and say, you know, this is going to be really rough on you and Dave. It will probably end up in divorce for the two of you; it's really sad. Okay, what I'm thinking is you're going to have half of Dave's money, right? And I got a really good investment for you... a really good project I'm working on. It's something...

Mariel Hemingway needs better movies!, 25 September 2001
Author: larrysmile1 from Illinois

Mariel Hemingway is a really cutie. She is now 40 years old and has made about 38 movies. However, aside from this zany "Sex Monster" I only remember seeing her act in the 1987 Superman IV - when she was 26 years old.

This fracical comedy is without any visual sex scenes which makes it a disappointment to it's name. (Open kissing and overdubbed moaning does not a sex scene make.)

Mike Binder wrote, directed, and starred in this film. I would guess that it's a family affair with Jack Binder producing. Maybe Mariel is associated with the project. But, she really needs a more in depth script in which to act. She has been in the movie industry too long for such light comedy fluff.

Ms. Hemingway still has a pretty face that the camera can spend more than five seconds a "take" showing and a great physical presence. She should be offered roles more powerful.
