Trivia

After the film had failed at the box office, Writer/Director Richard Rush sent his "version" to three of the country's best film critics who had completely lambasted the film when it was released theatrically during the Summer of 1994. After seeing Rush's unimpaired version, they give him critical raves for it. See more »

Goofs

Shortly after his patient's suicide, we see Bill from behind talking with an another man, and he makes some comment about suicide and motions to his head with his right hand. But when the camera shows him from the front, he is putting his left arm down. See more »

could be worse
26 October 2004 | by emily0See all my reviews

this film isn't a complete loss, but it's close. it pathologises transsexuality. it has lots of gratuitous sex involving a waif and an aging male - and i really mean gratuitous. i don't need to see that much skin from mr. willis. although now i've met mr. willis' willis...

also, the makeup job on certain characters is very, very unfortunate.

but at least it's an interesting film. i mean, i watched it. there are worse.

not the most ringing endorsement, perhaps, but if it's late at night and nothing else is on cable, what the heck. at least you'll be confused enough to keep your attention on the movie.
