    There was enough advertising for this ridiculous movie- a fat, homely woman’s fantasy about a rich , disturbed man and how someone like her would only be able to hold his interest as a punching bag.

    Sad commentary on the dumbi ng down of a generation, & their low self-esteem that lets them mistake bullying abuse pass off as sex play.

    Real women don’t need whips to get off.
