Tagline: A God Awful Love Story

Plot: Driven by biological excess, a man and a woman search for sexual fulfillment, unaware of each other's existence. Unfortunately, they eventually meet, and the bonding of these two very unusual human beings ends in a god awful love story.

My rating: 6/10

Will I watch it again? No.

I think this would've been much better had it been made in the 80s and shot on film.  It's got a direct to video look and feel to it that detracts.  The actors do a fine job and it's a reasonably entertaining movie but the outrageousness of it all is diminished by the tamer scenes.  You get some great nudity and wild imagery...

So that's what it looks like from the inside out.  Hmmmm.  It's the wackiness that helps maintain any interest but there's either not enough of it or the film relies too much on what's there.  There's no escaping the low budget territory this roams in but I can't help but feel that it should've been better considering the body of work of Frank Henenlotter.  FRANKENHOOKER (1990) is a classic in my book.
