Did You Know?

James Lorinz was originally hired to play a smaller role. After the lead actor and his rock star wife (hired to play the roles of Mike and Sherry) started demanding unreasonable amounts of money, Simonelli decided to offer Lorinz the lead instead. Lorinz accepted thinking he was playing the role of Frankie and began preparing to play the wrong role.See more »

I love that frankenhooker guy, 6 September 2002

I recently saw the leading man of this quirky "Sweet Life" flick in the demented cult classic "Frankenhooker". James Lorinz, he is amazing, a one man riot, a genius. A must see. I laughed I cried, it was better than Cats. (I know, what isn't, but seriously)... First time director Rocco Simonelli moves away from boring romantic cliches in this dark and sometimes uncomfortable comedy. Just when you think you know where it's going, things take unpredictable turns. Joan Jett both scares and excites me. That BJ scene is hot & hysterical. What about the lesbian action though? I mean Lila (Barbara Sicuranza) and Sherry (Joan Jett) lived together, right? I mean, what was going on there? Inquiring minds like to know, and so Mr. Simonelli I anxiously await the pre or sequel..."sweet life 2, the sugar substitute."
