Quotes

Claudine Van Doozen: You know, I had this science teacher once, when I was back in junior high school. I spent the entire year ignoring the man. Except that there was one thing that he said that I will always, always remember. He talked about this law. You know, this 'law' that governed the whole, wide universe. The way it worked is that, all things that mattered would be returned. You know, that matter itself isn't created or destroyed. It just lasts forever. We may not recognize them anymore, but they come back.

An Erotic Journey Of Desire... NOT!
13 June 2000 | by videoportSee all my reviews

This film has been repackaged as an erotic picture [retitled Kiss Of Fire] with a very racy cover that implies one will get more than a brief exposure to Miss Applegate's talents. Well forget it. This is an idiotic "drama" with no point, little plot, and amateurish camera work. Disney has added the tagline "An Erotic Journey Of Desire!" to a movie that is really just a crappy chick-flick!
