What does "broccoli" mean"?
Depends on the context. Pubic hair or marijuana. It's a noun.
Vagina. As in, "He penetrated her Virginia with a hammer".

The U.S. unrated DVD edition has almost a minute of footage not seen in theaters. It contains:
30 extra seconds of the early scene in the basement of the Red Turtle.
An intimate scene involving Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo lasts about 20 seconds longer.
HORRIBLE! The film lacks direction. It seems to mimic the work of too many other dark films. (Taxi Driver, Looking For Mr. Goodbar)Movies can mean a lot of different things to viewers but it should always be entertaining. This movie is not. It does offer confusing plot lines, meaningless flashbacks, too much mumbling, and I'm still trying to figure why all the poetry. It's just too inconsistent. When you look at the cast you expect a great mystery/thriller. Kevin Bacon (Trapped, Mystic River), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Dolores Claiborne, Single White Female), Meg Ryan (DOA, Proof of Life). Funny Enough Kevin Bacon is not listed in the opening credits...hmm...Wonder why? The filming itself was something out of film school or my kids cam-corder. Characters...well I only have 1000 words.
