Trivia

In a 1988 interview with the Chicago Tribune, Victoria Jackson was asked if it was hypocritical for a fundamentalist Christian like herself to appear naked in the film. She said she didn`t think it was any big deal. "Christians have sex, and they love sex,'' said Jackson. "It's just that they don`t make fun of it. It's a beautiful thing." Then she added, "The fact is, the film is very subtly pro-monogamy, anti-casual sex.'' See more »

Goofs

During the scene with Melissa at the doctor's office, when she is being told of all the afflictions she has, the doctor incorrectly calls the AIDS virus "Acute Immune Deficiency Syndrome" instead of its correct label of "Acquired Immunnodeficiency Syndrome." See more »

Quotes

Vinny: Hey, need a lift?
Stacy: Vinny! What are you doing here?
Vinny: I was just driving around the neighborhood. Last night I did something-- Look, it's like this. It's Christmas Day, I'm sitting around my house, right, I'm all alone... so, uh, I hop in the limo... 24 hours later, I wind up in Chicago. And I say to myself, Vincent, where the hell you going? That's when it hits me... I'm coming to see you.
Stacy: You drove all that way just to see me?
Vinny: Hey, only 4 days and, what, 18 speeding tickets.

Mildly amusing
25 February 2000 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

A mildly amusing sex comedy. Lea Thompson was OK, and Andrew Dice Clay pretty good here. I thought that Victoria Jackson was the real star here, though. She seems to have disappeared since then. I would have liked to have seen more of her. I can only recommend it casually, though.
