Known Trivia

    Goofs: Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Their first session is on Thursday the 13th. When Helen Hunt's character takes out her diary to schedule the next session she says, "how about we make it the same time next Thursday on the 21st?"

    Plot: A man in an iron lung who wishes to lose his virginity contacts a professional sex surrogate with the help of his therapist and priest. Full summary » |  »
