Quotes

[to Evie, who is lying bound and gagged on a bed after a consensual bondage scene with Laura]
Marty Barnes: Hi. Listen, before I untie you, while I have your attention, I just wanted to take a minute and say, you know, this is going to be really rough on you and Dave. It will probably end up in divorce for the two of you; it's really sad. Okay, what I'm thinking is you're going to have half of Dave's money, right? And I got a really good investment for you... a really good project I'm working on. It's ...

It's got great opening credits. I'll give it that.
24 April 2003 | by BlackJack_BSee all my reviews

The Sex Monster does have one of my personal Top 10 opening film credits scenes. You certainly will enjoy seeing the lovely Mariel Hemingway dancing with a bunch of assorted beauties wearing a tight little number and carrying a corny but cute smile while doing it. The movie is another low-budget HBO type film featuring a cast of has-beens and never weres. It's much more bearable than the usual chintzy J-Lo or Meg Ryan romantic comedy but it doesn't have bring anything special to the table other than the "bisexual" angle. It has it moments but you still feel for Hemingway. She was at one time a great actress appearing in acclaimed films like "Manhattan", "Personal Best" and "Star 80". Still, it's leagues better than that film she did with her late sister Margaux called "Lipstick". As for Mr. Binder, he doesn't remind me of anything special but there are bits of Woody Allen in him.
