Trivia

Sara Gilbert agreed to do the movie because she is a friend of the movie's writer, Christopher Landon, son of the late Michael Landon, who starred in "Little House on the Prarie" with Melissa Gilbert, Sara's sister. Having the show on the TV when Scott first enters the room is a witty acknowledgment of this connection. See more »

Lovely little morsel
10 June 2001 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

What a lovely little film this is! Definitely worth a look. Sara Gilbert is stunning as always. Bravo Sarah!

The story has a father taking his son to a female prostitute, no doubt because he wants to make his son straight. Sara Gilbert's prostitute character figures out that the son is gay, and gives him a night to remember

  • not because of sex, but because of acceptance. A beautiful little


film.
