This film got a lot of positive attention at the time from critics - it launched Andie MacDowell, and earned she and Laura San Giancomo award nominations. Both well-deserved. This film is a nearly perfect rendering of adult sexual misbehavior contrasted with profound sexual repression. The way the film pulled me in with Andie MacDowell's southern lady affect contrasted with her sister's sexually liberal attitudes and practice did not prepare me for for the ending, which surprisingly was not super confrontatonal amongst the actors.
The James Spader does do his subtle, signature performance to a tee in this one and stole the show. Great motion picture. Good times man, good times I remember seeing this movie in a crowded theater and the reaction then It was late 89 or something like that.. It was really provocative for its time and gave credible proof that females really do masturbate.
Still didn't believe that for another 11 years, but it was nice to have watch and hear some frank discussions about sex and betrayal The acting performances were top notch Who didn't fall in love with that sexy husky voice of Laura San Gicomomo?
Miss all that 80s hair too Boy was I ever mistaken. Although blunt and sensually erotic, this movie is sublimely thoughtful and uncompromisingly fascinating as it explores the sexual nature of men and women and all of their inherent misgivings, disillusionment and confusion. This is a provocative Indie film which delves deeply into the arena of inter-personal relationships.
It's not for the easily offended or for those looking for escapist entertainment. This is pure character driven narrative, extremely well acted and directed. Boldly honest and thoughtful throughout.

I mean I think that women want it, I just don't think that they want it for the same reason that men think they do. But that's not to say the film wasn't I'd heard about this film for years but never saw it. So after the years of hype I was disappointed.
