A Big Turn-Off
12 April 2005 | by DandelionJaneSee all my reviews

Oh, poor Vincent D'Onofrio! The only people who should pay any money to see this movie are collectors who buy the DVD because they want to get everything Vincent D'Onofrio has ever done. And, for the record, he has no part in what makes this movie awful. That honor goes to the actors who had the main parts, and to the writers, and to the directors, and to the producers....You know, the collectors should pay for it, maybe, but I don't think that even they should see it. Keep it sealed and be afraid, be very afraid. Oh, O.K., true fans of Vincent D'Onofrio can watch what is, according to IMDb, his first film performance, if they have strong enough stomachs to deal with the rest of this garbage. This "teenage sex comedy" wasn't funny, wasn't sexy, and I don't think the performers looked particularly teen-aged!
