Trivia

Todd McCarthy in American show-business trade paper 'Variety' said of this film's censorship classification controversy upon its initial American release that the "original version, which was screened for critics while the battle with the MPAA over the NC-17 rating was played out, contains nothing that hasn't been seen in countless R-rated pix over the years; if the entire flap hadn't happened, one wouldn't have thought anything of it. As things stand, film is being cut to R-rating specifications, which must now be considerably more rigorous than they were a few months ago". Brian J. Dillard at website 'Allmovie' states that the film's "stark, frank sex scenes were trimmed to attain an R rating for theatrical release [in the USA], [but] the original, uncut version is available on video and DVD".

Damaged My Mind...
25 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

Most pathetic movie i have ever seen. Sex scenes were hilarious. Characters were under developed and you could never guess why they(Dad and son's GF) were attracted to each other in the first place. yes,they were obsessive but it was point less and very inhuman. Story was unbelievably lame and female lead was just boring. Only likable character is the mother. I liked just one scene in this movie which was at the end. you can not relate to emotions of dad and son's GF at all. Very slow and sick movie. Please don't waste your precious time. There are no hidden meanings in this movie that you can discover. Bad acting, poor story telling and bad direction. How they got producers to make this movie is a mystery, may be they thought they can sell this by putting in few sex scenes but its a shame that you don't enjoy them either actors are man handling each other, jumping, pushing and behaving like animals. All in all waste of time.
