In the original draft of the screenplay, the object Kelly is holding underneath the towel, in the threesome scene, wasn't a bottle of champagne, as seen in the film, but a novelty penis. See more »

What do you do to your neck?
Oh, this? I don't have to wear it all the time.

Extended threesome between Suzie, Lombardo, and Kelly
Extended pool scene of Suzie and Kelly making love

Alternate and extended dialogue is placed through out the movie
Alternate Ending - Suzie's Grandmother Ruby takes Det. Perez on a tour of Suzie's home, she shows her a family album and reveals that she is not Suzie's real grandmother but that she raised her as her own. In an odd twist of events, old man Van Ryan (Kelly's grandfather) had got a girl pregnant and left her for dead in the glades, Ruby found Suzie shortly there afterwards. Ruby tells Det. Perez that Sandra Van Ryan (Theresa Russell) is Suzie's half sister and that Suzie had been sleeping with her own niece Kelly (Denise Richards). (This is all added before Det. Perez goes to talk to Walter).
2 Added graphic scenes to the revealing ending - 1 Kelly comes to see Lombardo at the bar and gives him some cocaine to try, she is dressed very sexy in red and they end up fooling around (when Suzie takes the pictures of them together). 2 Then Lombardo is seen making love to Kelly from behind (after the car wash; in this particular scene, Lombardo is seen groping Kelly's right breast) as she repeats the line "No little girl is gonna make me..."
Magnificent storyline. While the basic storyline of what was happening was so simple it was so original as well. All the twists and turns kept you interested throughout the movie which is what people really want to see from a movie, not something that drags on and on about nothing and then finishes with the same kind of ending that every other movie does. Neve Campbell played a different type of role to what she's used to but did it very well. Matt Dillon (playing Sam Lambardo) was excellent although the role could have been cast slightly better maybe with George Clooney. Kevin Bacon gave another stellar performance and kept you interested in his role throughout the movie. But without a doubt the the best performance was Denise Richards who was absolutely perfect for the role. She couldn't have been cast better from anyone in the world. Her beauty made this movie what it was. I think a lot of people would consider Matt Dillon the luckiest man in the world.
