Trivia

Sean Weathers financial backers weren't sold on having him play the lead character, Arthur Blake. They favored a "name actor" such as Jesse L. Martin or Richard T. Jones for the role. Hill Harper was also considered, after butting heads on this and numerous other issues, Weathers and his financial backers parted ways. He would end up losing out on a reported $200,000 budget, but would go on to play the lead and shoot the movie out-of-pocket a year later. 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.
