Goofs

A plot point rests on Toni discovering Eddie's scam by listening in on his phone conversation. However, they are in connecting rooms with separate phone lines, not a single large room with one line. She would not have been able to listen in on his line. See more »

Quotes

Eddy: Oh. Somebody's always doin' somebody wrong. On that radio.
Toni: Oh, cheer up. At least you're not going to jail.
Eddy: Right.
Toni: What's on your mind?
Eddy: I was ready to explode, when you were on my lap.
Toni: Oh, is this the sweet-talking stage?
Eddy: You kill me.
Toni: You're turning me on.
Eddy: You're wild.
Toni: I'm ready.

Alternate Versions

In the ABC version, the sex scene with Eddy and Toni is seriously edited. They only show a brief portion of it and no actual nudity is shown. This version also cuts part of the scene in which she is putting in a tampn while handcuffed to Rock. This version does not have her say, I've never done this handcuffed to a man before. Kinda sexy don't you think." See more »

You have to "get" Hopper's sense of humor
27 May 2007 | by SpokesRSSee all my reviews

If you want a fun romp with loads of subtle humor, then you will enjoy this flick.

I don't understand why anyone wouldn't enjoy this one. Take it for what it is: a vehicle for Dennis Hopper to mess with your head and make you laugh. It ain't Shakespeare, but it is well done. Ericka Eleniak is absolutely beautiful and holds her own in this one - Better than any episode of Baywatch - and shows a knack for subtle humor. Too bad she hasn't had many opportunities to expand on that.

Tom Berenger fits his role of "real Navy" perfectly and William McNamara does a solid job as a hustler.

Throw in a walk-on by Hopper in the middle of the chase for "the Cherry on this Sundae" and you've got a movie that kept my attention and kept me laughing. I bought this one as soon as it was available.

Brain-candy.
