Exploitation in the Guise of Art

As has been stated repeatedly, we all really like the lead actor, Matt Klemp, as it was very obvious that this was his first real project and he gave it his best...which was actually very good. But his "very good" was surrounded by mediocre to bad, ranging from the acting from the supporting cast, to the overall script, which had holes wide enough to drive a Semi-truck through. Also, the writer and/or director really capitalized on Matt's good looks and body to the point of becoming cliché and just gratuitously creepy (would a normal geriatric father REALLY need to pull his teen-age son's pants down to spank him? If the answer is yes, that says something pretty unsettling about the father). While the film is OK, especially for an indie in the 90s, it really just had one good thing going for it...and I really hope he was rewarded (at least monetarily) for his efforts.
