Newt's movie review

What bothered me most was the almost constant playing of different versions of Blondie's Call Me. I guess the budget couldn't handle licensing more than one song. The story was fair, the acting was OK, there were some really humourous parts like Gere pretending to be a gay designer, but on the whole I didn't find it to be that remarkable.

And for those of you keeping track, there is full frontal male nudity.
