Zea gives a natural performance amid a neighborhood of painful stereotypes. ... Meanwhile, Parise is reduced to talking to a pet bird to explain his emotions.
The mustiness of many of the script's ideas hardly detracts from what feels like a radical premise, at least in film - that a woman can get off with a stranger and leave it at that. Erica Jong would be proud.
Absorbing, focused and provocative despite its slight staginess. Kudos to screenwriter Peter Lefcourt and director Terri Hanauer for providing the audience with a romance that respects its female protagonist without over-sexualizing/objectifying her.
