Trivia

Originally, the poetry reading scene was going to include a poem written by Henry Rollins. This was changed at the last minute when permission was refused for its inclusion in the film. Bud Cort wrote all the poetry himself at the last minute. See more »

Quotes

Grace: Wanna know what I'd do? I'd break his balls. What you do is... you get yourself a sock, put a couple of plums in it, tie it to a doorknob, and you practice reaching out, grabbing 'em and pulling down on his balls until they pop.

User Reviews

 
A good attempt at a movie, but it sadly falls short.
29 June 1999 | by Ghetto-4See all my reviews

As Bud Cort's first attempt at direction, Ted and Venus is able to retain a certain degree of charm but in many respects falls short of a "good" movie. Although the basic idea of the film is intriguing, the plot is both weak and uninteresting. Bud Cort delivers a well-mediated and convincing performance, but fails to instill whatever formula is needed for a thoroughly entertaining movie. Except for the most die-hard Bud Cort/Harold and Maude fans, this movie should definitely be avoided at all costs.
