Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for strong sexuality and language
Don’t listen to that naysayer above, she obviously has no taste.
If you want to see a great film that has gay themes, coming of age themes, Goth themes, or are a fan of the great Stevie Nicks, then this is a terrific movie to see.
While there are two scenes of “sex” it’s nothing more than you would see if you watched Desperate Housewives.
Karen Black, heroine of the great 70’s disaster films, also has a small role in the film, in which she’s superb. It’s worth seeing just for her alone.
Compared to some of the big budget buddy films out today this one is a rare diamond among the chaff. If you come across it at your local video store don’t hesitate to rent it.
