Sex and the Other Man
release year:1995 (direct-to-video) genre:dark comedy/drama viewing setting:home laserdisc, 11/17/97 what I expected:to see Kari Wuhrer naked what I got:a weird little comedy/kidnapping bit with some basic nudity
synopsis:A young couple is happy in all respects except one: the guy can't get it up. This is a shame, considering that his wife is quite cute. Anyway, a botched affair leads to them holding a rich executive while they figure out how to best blackmail him.
impressions:This had trace elements of Pulp Fiction but seemed to be more about how the main characters changed during their ordeal. It was entertaining, but only minimally.
acting:Flippant, mixing dark comedy with light comedy. Several witty lines.
final word:Worth watching, but only barely.
