By the looks of the audience score, it would seem some people have some specific hangups or insecurities triggered when they watch this movie. Maybe ex-cons feel disrespected or something. "I go ape sh-- for Chuck Mangione. But, enough small talk." This is one of those flicks that I have watched at least a dozen times because I can't surf past it. Even the credits are funny.
Sleazy, but it's almost a must-see for men. With a greater than 50 percent divorce rate, every man needs to see just what a horrible risk it is to walk down the aisle in marriage. According to this compelling documentary, women are really stupid, just waiting from some skilled communicator to come along on any given day to get them into bed.
I've been watching this movie for 25 years, and it never gets old. The performance from Sean Nelson (Fresh) is Oscar worthy to this day. The story is just gritty enough to keep you watching. The chess metaphor is brilliant. The writing good enough and raw enough to make it authentic. Even instances of bad child acting add some charm.
