A hot young phone sex addict and his narcissistic opera diva mom. A dangerously agitated hustler and a half-dozen dangerously agitated hustlers who look just like him. A tittering neurotic who thinks she's Vanessa Redgrave and Vanessa Redgrave herself. Pot brownies, puke jokes, a gay dad, a flying lesbian, Jerry Hall, a dead body and a fetish for Brian DePalma movies! Anchoring the mayhem is Elisabeth Beaumont, an American opera star visiting Paris to perform "Turandot" and dabble in some belated mothering of her 23 year-old son Thomas. Thomas doesn't need mothering; he needs some good hot manhandling. And, in the best DePalma tradition, the quest for sex leads to voyeurism and voyeurism, leads to murder. From there, it's just a short path to therapy. Unfortunately, the psychiatrist that Thomas visits is a little on the dead side herself, and a nutty patient has taken her place.Written by

This movie is what it is: a silly farce. It's great if you are looking for a light film to while away an evening. If you are looking for deep cinema, give it a pass. If you like whimsical silly films, you'll love it. I got some good laughs out of it, and the plot is certainly unlike any other film I've seen. Jane Birkin was terrific, especially the scene in the doctor's office. I was glad to be introduced to some fresh faces in this film. Diane Wiest was great too. I had not seen her in any recent films and it was nice to see her taking on a different role in a non-traditional film. The various plot lines all tie up at the end. Films with that kind of structure are usually fun to watch as you anticipate each character learning what's really going on. If you like ensemble cast films, you will probably like this one. It has a number of actors in it, some with small but funny parts. Check it out!
