Quotes

All-tied-up shop clerk: You know a lot of people feel a little nervous about this whole submissive/dominant thing at first, but, you know, really the submissive person is always in control. All you have to do is give your partner a little control word, like "yellow."
Sheila Kingston: Yellow... Y'ello! Fred!

Not the best flick ever, but lots of fun to be had
19 June 2004 | by revchewieSee all my reviews

OK, as always, the book was better. That goes without saying.

But Dan Akroyd does a good job as the uptight prig tossed into a BDSM subculture. Rosie shocked me by looking *hot* in her dominatrix outfit! Dana Delaney's delivery was kind of wooden, but IMHO (that's "in my horny opinion") her physique, so prominently displayed both in her dom outfit and out of it, makes up for her lack of emoting. The pool scene... 'Nuff said. <sigh>

This will never show up on a list of the top movies of the century (or even of the year) but for some brainless comedy, together with some serious eye candy to satisfy both men and women, it's a good way to waste a couple of hours.
