Did You Know?

Trivia

The role of Victor (played by Mike Haboush) was originally Victoria. Victoria was supposed to be the mother of Arthur. Sam Mraovich ultimately decided it would be more powerful to portray Arthur's nemesis as a closeted gay man, so he changed the role to that of Arthur's brother and cast gay porn star Michael Haboush in the role. In the shooting script that Mraovich self-published, though, he accidentally left the name Victoria in several places. See more »

Goofs

When Arthur is at the coffee shop, there appear to be three people sitting. However, the first extra is actually Loretta Altman, who plays Mildred, who then appears as the third person, in a speaking role, in the next shot. See more »

Just How Bad Can A Film Be?
12 August 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

...well, pop this into the DVD, waste an hour and a half of your life that you will never get back, and find out.

Acting? What acting?

Production values? ...Production? ...Values?

Story? Don't get me started.

After many years of posting on IMDb, I never thought I would see a film so bad that I truly wished for a lower rating than one. I always have found at least a reason or two to see merit - if only in the intent or the effort of the writer, the director, the cast, or the producer?

In this case, they're all the same guy (!) who really needs to get a handle on the fact, at least as demonstrated by this worthless waste of video tape, that he has no talent. I mean it would be a reasonable excuse if this were some junior high schooler's "production" for his first cinema class, but the referenced "artist" behind this dreck was twenty-six at the time of this miscarriage.

Just how did this ever get made? Who in their right mind ever wrote a check for this? Moreover, don't let the box cover fool you: there's not even anything that remotely resembles a good sex scene or any good "exposure" of the hunk on that cover.

Two final items: there was one second when this "film" had redeeming value: the aforementioned "talent" gets roundly punched out by his lover. I cheered! And, I did learn one thing from this "film.". There are times when something is so very bad that it is, indeed, truly very funny. But not in any comical manner; it's just sadly humorous. Very sadly humorous.
