If I wanted the book, I'd get the book
on May 29, 2003
"The book is sooooo much better than the movie". "If you have a brain, don't watch this movie". Well, tsk, tsk, aren't we the intellectual snob? Listen, if I wanted to "read" this "story", I would have gone ahead and bought the book. I certainly didn't buy the video itself for the rich, intellectual content either. Demi Moore is nude. That is why I bought it. I didn't see much difference between the unrated and R-rated versions, though the unrated version claims to have two extra minutes of footage. Of what, I don't know. No big deal, really, except you're out about ten bucks for another version that is basically the same.
Again, most of us who own this video or DVD likely bought it with the realistic expectation that we wouldn't be seeing Oscar-caliber material. We bought it to see Demi Moore nude! What else really matters when you have THAT? Some people just expect entirely too much out of a movie.
I was actually pleasantly surprised, though. While it certainly isn't award-winning, the film is often pretty funny and sometimes touching. Something tells me the actors and director had nothing more than this in mind when making it. Demi Moore is hot...when you stop and recognize that fact as the dominant selling point in this you'll enjoy it more. A decent, although not great storyline is a nice bonus.
