Terrible
8 January 2011 | by DanDVSee all my reviews

I rented this on a whim from Blockbuster, in exchange for a DVD I was returning. Never again.

The fact that this 2006 movie has only 29 votes and only 1 other review at the time I'm writing this one (Jan 2011) already says a lot. Indeed, the movie is - bottom line - a waste of time. For an interesting portrayal of power play, watch "Nine 1/2 Weeks" instead. For relationship evolution over time, there are countless better movies. This one isn't even sexy, although its theme is a carnal affair.

What else? Pseudo-intellectualism, bad editing, amateur acting, and a gratuitous cartoon character at one point.
