Review by Wayne Malin

Boring, pretentious nonsense,

I saw this at an art cinema way back in the early 80s. Back then Richard Dreyfuss was a big star and it was a shock to see him in an X-rated film. This film was dull dull dull.

It takes place in one room where the characters talk endlessly about…something or other–I was so bored I can’t remember. With the exception of Bob Hoskins and Dreyfuss everybody is nude at one time or another…but it’s not even remotely erotic. The one sex scene is obviously being faked. The cast all try their hardest but they can’t pull this across. Somehow this still carries an X rating! Don’t be fooled–this is R rated material all the way

Boring and stupid–a must miss. Purportedly the British version runs a half hour longer!!!!
