Storyline

Lahn is a heroin addict who will do anything for his dose. After he robs his roommate, Denis, he shows up at the door of Denis' best friend, Trevor, to see if he will hide him for a while. He, who is terrified of women, agrees to let him stay in his apartment. In return for shelter and his daily dose, Trevor turns him into his slave and then into his dream girl, Dorothy. He uses psychological tactics to twist him into doing everything he asks. Written by Peter Storms <peter_storms@ascp.org>

Trivia

In a 2012 interview with Slate, Elizabeth Banks said that she considered her role in this movie to be one of the worst mistakes in her career. She also said that it was instrumental in her decision to attend drama school, so that she could receive training that would enable her never to have to be in this type of movie again. See more »

Brilliance....pure brilliance!
14 April 2000 | by cd0882See all my reviews

This movie lit me up from the beginning....it's somewhat of an unusual setting, but it's great. The way the main characters manipulate each other...it's great. And the music.....Chris Matarazzo is a musical genius. Everything fits perfectly. Bravo Kevin DiNovis! Bravo Chris Matarazzo!
