Trivia

Due to the nature of the film, many prop houses were unwilling to supply props, leading to an unusual situation where the fetish props were easier for the production team to get hold of than more conventional items like tables and lamps. See more »

An amusing, sexy and fast-moving film
28 September 1998 | by ojroweSee all my reviews

I didn't have huge expectations of this movie, and thus was pleasantly surprised. It is basically a romantic comedy dressed up in outrageous clothing!

Guinevere Turner from Go Fish is the super cool star, and spends most of the film strutting around in a selection of stunning fetish outfits. It is interesting to get an honest insight into the Fetish world, but thankfully the details are not too gory.

It was also good to hear a soundtrack featuring dance music that you would actually hear in London/English clubs.

The film has some good deadpan humour, and has quite a feel-good atmosphere. Definitely worth a look.
