After another hard night at McCool's, bartender Randy runs into Jewel. The seductive lady seems to have evaded a rape pretty closely, and when the man comes back, she puts a bullet in his head. After all these events (and others), Randy takes Jewel home, and the two become a couple. Yet Jewel begins to develop into a very demanding girlfriend and drives Randy into committing crimes for her and her elaborate lifestyle. Randy's cousin Carl is driven crazy by Randy's incredibly sexy girl as well as the investigating officer, Detective Dehling.Written by

Matt Dillon and Richard Jenkins both previously appeared in There's Something About Mary, which shares a similar plot to this film. Both films involve different men all falling for the same woman. Matt Dillon plays one of the men in both films and Jenkins plays a similar role in both films as well. In "Mary" he plays a therapist to whom Ben Stiller tells his story and in this film he plays a priest to whom John Goodman tells his story. See more »

The DVD features an alternate ending where after, we see 'Paul Reiser' get smashed by the garbage dumpster, it continues as we see Matt Dillon in his destroyed home and John Goodman lying dead on the floor; the cops come and arrest Dillon because they think he was responsible for the shooting and then we see Liv Tyler and Michael Douglas drive off and live happily ever after. This ending is refered to as "Alternate Depressing ending". See more »
I must admit, I liked this movie, and didnt find it all misogynist. It could be subtitled, three ways of looking at LiV Tyler. Three different men become obsessed with the same woman,and tell their stories to very different characters;One man(John Goodman) tells his story to a priest(the very funny Richard Jenkins).For Goodmans charcter, the Liv Tyler character is an idealized saint, the second coming of his sainted wife,Theresa.For Paul Riesers character(who tellls story to a shrink(a fine, understated performance by the great Reba Mcintire),the Liv Tyler character is simplyan object of (kinky)sexual fantasy.Finally Matt Dillons rather dimwitted charcter tells HIS side of the story to a sleazy hit man, played by Micheal Douglas.All three of these narratives of obsession are told simultaneously,and all are amusing. Finaly the film ends in a bizarrely funny climax, that I wont give away.
