Goofs

When Jim is driving to Artie's place at the end of the film, when he leaves his house, it is pouring rain, and when he arrives at Artie's it is pouring rain, but between these two shots, there is a high altitude shot of his car on the Golden Gate Bridge, and not only is it not raining, but the ground is clearly not even wet.

Above average cable biopic.
19 September 2000 | by (Hollywood, Calif.) – See all my reviews

I just finished the QC of Rated X for the up coming DVD. I was pleasantly surprised by this film. The acting was impressive, and the story of the Mitchell Brothers kept my interest. The greatest praise I could give this film; after viewing it I wanted to learn more about the facts behind the Brothers story. This movie is worth a look, unless the subject matter would offend.
