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 »

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.

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.
