Director Richard Rush clashed with producer/financier Andrew G. Vajna over the final cut of the film. Rush wanted his longer, eccentric cut to be released, but Vajna wanted the shorter, and more conventional, 121 minute version released. Vajna eventually got his way. See more »
At one point during the first group session, Ritchie notices that Bill is wearing one green sock and one red, because Bill is blind to the color red. To Bill, only the red sock would be gray, and the other would still be green and he'd know they were mismatched. See more »

The Australian Roadshow Entertainment video release is the only way to see the film fully uncut in that country. It features the infamous "pool scene" where Willis's penis floats up next to Jane March's head when she is underwater. See more »
this film isn't a complete loss, but it's close. it pathologises transsexuality. it has lots of gratuitous sex involving a waif and an aging male - and i really mean gratuitous. i don't need to see that much skin from mr. willis. although now i've met mr. willis' willis...
also, the makeup job on certain characters is very, very unfortunate.
but at least it's an interesting film. i mean, i watched it. there are worse.
not the most ringing endorsement, perhaps, but if it's late at night and nothing else is on cable, what the heck. at least you'll be confused enough to keep your attention on the movie.
