After another hard night at McCool's, bartender Randy runs into Jewel. The seductive lady seems to have evaded a rape pretty closely, and when the man comes back, she puts a bullet in his head. After all these events (and others), Randy takes Jewel home, and the two become a couple. Yet Jewel begins to develop into a very demanding girlfriend and drives Randy into committing crimes for her and her elaborate lifestyle. Randy's cousin Carl is driven crazy by Randy's incredibly sexy girl as well as the investigating officer, Detective Dehling. Written by Julian Reischl <>

When Jewel talks about when Randy worked as a bartender at McCool's, Jewel says Randy reminds her of a rock star. A nod to Liv Tyler herself. In real life, Liv Tyler is the daughter of Steven Tyler, the lead singer of the hard rock band Aerosmith. See more »


When Jewel brings the car home to show Randy, it is all covered in dirt and soot. Then as Detective Dehling pulls up in his car, you see the back of Jewel's car is shiny and clean. This is before the infamous "wash" scene, which happens as Detective Dehling is leaving. See more »

Interesting, funny film about sexual obsession.
26 January 2002 | by (warren michigan) – See all my reviews

I must admit, I liked this movie, and didnt find it all misogynist. It could be subtitled, three ways of looking at LiV Tyler. Three different men become obsessed with the same woman,and tell their stories to very different characters;One man(John Goodman) tells his story to a priest(the very funny Richard Jenkins).For Goodmans charcter, the Liv Tyler character is an idealized saint, the second coming of his sainted wife,Theresa.For Paul Riesers character(who tellls story to a shrink(a fine, understated performance by the great Reba Mcintire),the Liv Tyler character is simplyan object of (kinky)sexual fantasy.Finally Matt Dillons rather dimwitted charcter tells HIS side of the story to a sleazy hit man, played by Micheal Douglas.All three of these narratives of obsession are told simultaneously,and all are amusing. Finaly the film ends in a bizarrely funny climax, that I wont give away.
