For Adult Sensibilities
24 April 2003 | by vvanpoSee all my reviews

This movie holds a special place for me because I consider it to be my first "adult" film. Meaning this is the first movie made for adults with adult themes that I really paid attention to and liked. This doesn't mean it contains a lot of nudity and profanity. Actually it doesn't have much of either and that's a relief.

Keith Carradine is great as Mickey, a man will marry any woman he kisses. A man suffering the trials and tribulations of someone who always tells the truth. Two of the women that come into his life are "Ann" (also Nancy Love) and "Eve" (also Eve). Genevieve Bujold and Lesley Ann Warren play them with style.

Pepper it with characters make this movie a light treat. Alas it has dated a bit from its '80's self. But the Freddy Pendergrass music is still marvelous and sets "Choose Me"'s mood right.
