Cute, sexy, and Andrew Dice Clay actually being FUNNY!
20 February 2003 | by squeezeboxSee all my reviews

This Woody Allen-esque exploration of sex through the eyes of two female friends (Lea Thompson and Victoria Jackson) is a pretty entertaining little sleeper. The two discuss their sexual experiences, past relationships and societal attitudes, each taking turns talking to the audience. Eventually they travel to a spa where they encounter lust, rejection, love and, of course, sex, sex and more sex. Andrew Dice Clay actually turns in a great comic performance as an obnoxious spa patron who has the hots for Thompson, and Mary Gross adds a few laughs with her usual soft-spoken schtick. Jackson is cute, though a tad wooden, but Thompson's performance is right on the mark. As an added bonus, the two venture to a nude beach in one scene, so we get a nice long look at their bare bottoms (Jackson's cute buns make two extra appearances as well). Overall, there's really not much here, but what there is is pretty entertaining, and worth the price of a rental.
