Goofs

When Joe parks Jerome's Jaguar (after Jerome failing to do so), the shot from the outside shows that the car is parked between two other cars, one in front and one behind theirs. When however, the shot changes to the back seat towards the front, we see that there is no car in front, just empty road. See more »

Very Disappointing ,Boring & Useless.
12 April 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I was very sad and too disappointed with this movie.After I saw it I found out that it is very disappointing, boring and useless.The film plot needs to be redone again with skill because it does not have a good result.I sat in the cinema for almost 2 hours feeling bored and seeing a bad movie about a nymphomaniac woman not knowing and understanding why she sells her body for anyone for free and without any pleasure.The conversation in the movie could be considered as long .It is not a porno movie yet it has some porno like a blow job, anal sex and some pornographic sex. Nobody acted well in this movie except Uma Thurman. Uma Thurman role and appearance was very short and only for very few minutes. Yes,it does not have any art because the plot and script did not find a solution and were extremely uninteresting.
