    This movie made me uncomfortable and is extremely unsexy.

    Let's put it this way: Crash feels more logical than this.

    I'm not sure what kind of tone it's going for, either? A mentally disturbed woman finds solace in hazy BDSM territory with her boss. She's also childish and has a boyfriend who doesn't even know she's kinky — but I guess the kinky thing is a substitute for her self harm compulsions. Not sure it works that way, but okay.…

    They should've called this As Bland as it Gets. Talk about your Boomer white people problems of 1987.

    This entire movie feels like an outtake. I mean, a character dumps another over an edited teardrop. You'd think she'd discovered something really heinous.

    I caaaaaaaaaaaaan't.

    Albert Brooks gets to give the lovely line to Hunter: "you're gonna be a single fat lady." And we get other awkward/wtf lines in this, like William Hurt's dick being called out as a shadow puppet…
