Trivia

A large number of props in the film were bright pink, even if they were grossly out of place (e.g. pink folders in the trial sequence, and pink number plates on all the cars used). This was done intentionally by the director, who wanted something pink in every scene of the movie. See more »

Goofs

At the start of the scene in which Tanya steps out of her limo to pet a girl's dog, a closeup reveals the film crew reflected in the side of the vehicle. See more »

Quotes

Tanya Cheex: [after Peter has performed cunnilingus for the first time] Relax! It's natural
Peter Emery: You don't see it the wild. Or in a zoo, for that matter.

Most amusing - definitely better than Waterworld etc.
25 June 2001 | by kragazSee all my reviews

I found this to be a most entertaining movie. The cast were very convincing - one might almost think they WERE players. The SM action is, of course, less than extreme, and the party rooms were rather Hollywood grand, but well worth watching. Much of the film is based on the 'Spanner' case etc, and is very pertinent in all countries where the self identified "Christians" are always ready to tell the rest of us what to do. Certainly streets ahead of the dismal "Exit to Eden", and vastly more entertaining than "Waterworld", "The Postman" and the rest of that over priced drek.
