Trivia

Sean Weathers had written the part of Peter Carter with Walter Romney in mind, an actor that worked with Weathers on several of his previous projects. However, Walter decided to take a break from acting so he could focus solely on his writing. Weathers considered other actors from his previous films such as Illa, Jeff Roches and Buddy Love, before ultimately being wowed by Crandall's reading during an open call. See more »

Fun watch
3 February 2014 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

First off, I saw the standard version and not the uncut one "that goes all the way." I have to say I had a good time, surprisingly. I'll give it a 10 because my expectations were low. Now I didn't buy it thinking that I was throwing my money away. But I bought it thinking it would be like a Showgirls, so bad it's good. The acting is spotty at times to say the least, especially from some of the "actresses" but I'm assuming in the uncut version you're likely to see why they got the part. I'm actually tempted to get both versions just to see what the hype is about, because this one has plenty of sex and flesh as is. Anyway, pretty girls, nice story, some funny scenes, few intentional, some not intentional, but an all around good time.
