gripping movie about family tensions tearing a family apart
This movie is a bit of a classic. It centers on the tensions between a mother and daughter; when the mother gets a new boyfriend (a sleezy, unshaven and somewhat flabby fabio-clone) the daughter, upon catching them going at it, can't help but think it's a good idea to steal her mother's bf. She does this and family conflict ensues, she get's kicked out of the house only to find out that life with her new lover isn't all it's cracked up to be.
There are no incestuous scenes here, it's all focused on the drama between the main protagonists. There are far too many scenes with Flabbi-o, and Peter North gets a scene (funny seeing how young he is in this movie). Both female protagonists (there are only the two - which is great as it really develops a good story) put in solid performances in their respective roles.
The sex is well filmed and bushes are trimmed appropriate to the 90s origins of the movie. Overall a good watch and it would have got a 9 if it wasn't for the casting of the main male (But I guess each to their own, maybe there's ladies out there that find this attractive). This is a good movie for any retro-fan (sound ridiculous calling a late 90s movie retro, but it really is)... :)
