Disjointed and Nauseating
14 November 2004 | by (Northern, N.J.) – See all my reviews

Frankie is a drugged out stripper with a drugged out boyfriend. One evening she and a male patron at her strip club collapse and she wakes up the next morning thinking she's a man with amnesia. She/he then tries to find this other mystery man to find out what has happened. It had the potential to be an adult themed, "Freaky Friday".

However, the movie quickly devolves into numerous sordid scenes of gratuitous acts of sadism as Frankie begins to mutilate her boyfriend for no reason in particular, and the movie completely abandons the whole gender switch story.

The director at a Q&A session at the Rehoboth Beach Film Festival said he was true to the book, to his credit. That has convinced me never to read the book.
