Goofs

Even though the film has not indicate the year, the mise en scène places the story in the early 1970s.

Some cars that weren't in the production until the mid-1980s were visible in the parallel parking scene: Rover 800 (production started in 1986), third-generation Audi 100 (1982-1991), Volvo 245 (updated taillamps from 1981 onward), and second-generation Volkswagen Jetta (1984-1992).

The type of external rear-view mirrors and bumpers on Jaguar XJ driven by Jerôme (Shia LeBeouf) indicates a Series III (1979-1992) while the period-correct Jaguar XJ (Series I or II) should have chrome mirrors and bumpers. See more »

Complete waste of time that give porn a bad name.
15 April 2015 | by jasonboldtSee all my reviews

OK, I admit it, you had me at "Nymphomaniac"...but honestly, the swelling of certain extremities normally associated with the anticipation such a title would evoke, left immediately when I heard LeBeuf speak.The accent he used wasn't even questioned by the director? Did the director actually watch any scenes on playback? Are we to believe that a nymphomaniac believes themselves to be worthless humans? Now, I tried to reserve judgement until I had watched both...a considerable task when one isn't even interested after the "end" of the first trainwreck. I will keep my opinion about the "artistry" to myself. This movie had potential and obviously budget to make a strong impression, but all it did was come off as predictable and a bit antagonist toward conventional morality...maybe that was the point, but again, no comment on the artistic content. It was poorly executed and excruciatingly drawn out. The end was almost a relief...even mildly amusing. Both main characters displayed canned hypocrisy throughout and I would guess that to be another part of the "art" content....once again, no comment. Don't waste your time. Sex is fun and simulated sex isn't...especially when the simulation paints sex to be so.....well, no comment.
