I don't generally enjoy leaving negative reviews, especially for small films. There's a lot to like in this film, including a very appealing female lead. The film is quickly paced, no bogging down, no cloying romantic clichés. But let's just say that the sexual talk went way beyond banter to a big cringe-worthy, sticky ewwwwww of disgust in at least two scenes, and I'm not counting the locker room chatter between Miles and his caustic friend. I am so glad I watched this film alone, as I can't imagine how I would have reacted had someone else been there beyond my dog, and I'm not quite sure she's fully recovered. I'm by no means a prude, but Gheesh, if there is going to be sexually charged dialogue, it has to be clever, not vulgar. Double Indemnity this isn't.
