Trivia

Ralph Bakshi wrote the screenplay before he became famous with the intention to produce it as his first feature film. It was originally titled "When I Catch Her I'll Kill Her." The studio Bakshi approached found the material to be "too hot." According to Bakshi, "A story about women cheating on their husband was too far out at that time for some reason." Years later, Bakshi handed in the same script, with a few changes, and it was approved by the studio that eventually produced the film. See more »

Cool? Crazy? Find a dictionary please.
14 April 2009 | by amovieaboutourlivesSee all my reviews

Totally mislead, very simple and uninteresting plot. Actually the person who directed and the person who produced this, they ought to be ashamed of themselves. The characters are not well developed and the performances are very poor, and I'm talking about all the actors here, including my beloved Jared Leto, whom I've seen doing a much better job in lots of other roles, even those he performed during the 90's, but I can forgive him for this one because I don't think that with this movie and with this lines he could have done better. Well, wasn't for him I wouldn't have been 90 minutes standing in front of the TV watching this piece of stinky you-know-what.
