When Lisa walks into the hotel room, she sits on a bed with rose petals arranged on it in a heart formation. Some of the petals move when she sits down, but in the next shot they are rearranged as though they hadn't moved at all. This happens a few times in different shots throughout the scene. See more »

Alternate Versions

In Singapore, the film was originally passed with an R21 classification due to the film's sexual content and nudity. However the distributors were unsatisfied with this rating and opted to re-edit the film in order to obtain the more commercially lucrative M18 rating; the aforementioned cut removes a brief, close-up depiction of a hand squeezing a man's scrotum, as part of a couple's act of foreplay.

Lots of Good Stuff, but Not Perfect
2 September 2018 | by mkquinn91See all my reviews

There's a lot of great stuff here. Other than great performances from the main cast, Gary Cole is a special treat. However, there's a weird tension between the cliché premise of overbearing parents and a modern message about sex positivity and feminism that never feels resolved. This is compounded by really weak and banal "sweet" parent-daughter moments that tie things up a bit too quickly and neatly. It's still an above average comedy in the end.
