Elevator Pitch In an alternative reality adults are required to have partners in life, and those without them are sent to a hotel where, if they don´t find one in 45 days they are turned into an animal.
Content Some sexual references, including a special belt to prevent masturbation, and one actual sex scene.
A View I smiled when I reread the cast list, and there are some jokes, but in reality this is bewildering rubbish which should be left to the critics and the award ceremonies.
