CGiii Comment

The writing is as bad as the acting...

It's a series of [dull and dire] conversations...with a little fondling here and there. But - on the whole - it's a sexless affair. There may be a whiff of bisexuality...but, you would have to have the nose of a sniffer dog to find it!

Being Fire Island...there are a couple of men doing the business in the dunes...blink twice and you'll miss them.

The threesome are then joined - inexplicably - by a rather dowdy girl...who moans perpetually...and may be a little lesbian...again, you'll have to sniff real hard!

What happens to her is horrific and inexplicable...and, incomprehensible. Obviously, the filmmaker and writer realised that they had made a tedious film and threw all caution to the wind...and, courted controversy...

A misguided, misjudged, malignant film.



The(ir) Blurb...

During summer vacation on Fire Island, three young people--a girl and two guys--become so close that they form a sort-of threesome. When an uncool girl tries to infiltrate the trio's newly found relationship, they construct an elaborate plot that has violent results.
