+Alt Tags+In the mood to torture yourself or others? That might be the only reason to watch this Hong Kong film, which features a lesbian couple with the worst of stereotypes. Amy wants a child and sleeps with a male co-worker (Tai Yu Michael Dao) to get pregnant. Then she decides she likes the sex and might want to marry the guy. You know … all she needs is a good man.

Girlfriend Ann (Ellen Chan) becomes possessive, telling Amy that she belongs to her and won’t live without her. Ann demands a suicide pact, but only Amy is successfully poisoned and dies. Egads. So Ann goes on a murderous rampage, killing Amy’s boyfriend and other men who come on to her. Then she seduces the male detective, enjoying the sex, of course. Need I say more about the horrible stereotypes here? I don’t mind spoiling that she ends up killing herself as well.

Lots of sleazy porn-like music, panting and groaning. The acting, script and attempts at humor during the numerous anything-but-subtle het sex scenes are just atrocious. Stay away at all costs! They really believe what the title says. (AB)
