Alex is smitten with Catherine on sight, but she is reluctant to commit to any relationship out of her profession. Meanwhile, when Eppy's business is threatened with being closed down, Alex decides to buy the place with money from his family whom are in the Russian mafia.

Seeing Michael York holding a giant dildo (and I mean giant) on his first day's work at a sex toy factory had me laughing till my sides hurt. This is an edgy independent film and a very entertaining one. It's the first and only film I've ever seen that took me into the sex toy industry (realistically) and the Russian and Hispanic immigrants that work there (York plays a Russian). Beverly D' Angelo is classic as a porno actress who wields a whip and has a lisp! I've loaned it to my friends and they all all thought it was really funny too. I also love Erasure and they wrote the original music for the film and it's fantastic.
