Someone, please call me a psychiatrist! I loved this movie, and haven't
laughed this much in a long time! It's like a car accident on the
highway; you don't want to look, but you just can't help yourself!Think
Rocky Horror Picture Show meets Misery.
Alan Cummings is SO over the top, it's hysterical. You kind of WANT to feel sorry for him at the beginning, but there is just nothing truly redeeming about his character. I loved the way he got his comeuppance in the end.
David Boreanaz is good throughout, but particularly in the latter part of the movie, which he seems to embrace with unabashed glee.
If you like camp and bizarre humor, this is a movie you should definitely check out!
I've got to tell you, I was extremely apprehensive to watch this movie
because of its plot premise. It has the type of story line which would
allow it to be played out in a very crude manor...but it wasn't.
Great acting all around, I was very able to relate to the situations in this movie. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved this film, and the fact that I actually felt sympathy for Keith was something I genuinely didn't expect, and felt that this was because of the portrayal of the actor. I actually felt his vulnerability, and most certainly didn't expect to, particularly given the subject matter. Although I have some difficulty believing that the three young females in question would have problems going along with the plan (one in particular), I found it an empowering example of the tables being turned, so to speak. Intead of the young females being dominated, the older man was subjugated.
For those of you who are wary to watch this because of it's content, that is a perfectly rational notion, BUT, as the product of a very small town (population 1600, born and raised), I am here to inform you that sex with the older guy who never made it "out" but yet in a young female's eyes is worldly, is very true and a very real thing. I must admit though, that Keith treated these girls far better than any of the men of that type in my hometown treated us! To conquer this "enigma", catapulted you into the stratosphere of alpha female, at least for a short time anyway. At the ripe old age of 15, I was playing it hot and heavy (and more) with a 27-year-old myself! No married ones though, that's just a taboo I could not break.
That's just the way it is in a small town. You have fun (lots of it), get married young, settle down and and become young parents. Then you stay married forever, divorce is not an option. That's the status quo, and the accepted norm, particularly in a dominantly Roman Catholic (95%) such as the one I grew up in. I was very wild in my teens ( just like my peer group), got married while in college at 21, became a mother at 22 and have been married for 15 years. Now, my daughter at 14, is beginning her rites of passage and I am so scared, LOL!
