"The Digiview Version of this title, all be it inexpensive, is an edited version. This decent "B" Title has been chopped to remove the nudity for this cheap DVD release. I don't know if Digiview did it or it is just the copy they got, but the R rating doesn't really apply to this version."

"I read the other review on this site, and I see that it gave only one star because the film was edited, not because the film was poor. The one star rating was in anger over the editing.
I can sympathize with that, but I've never seen the original so I can only rate it on what I saw, and this is a funny film. Maybe it would have been more enjoyable with some nudity, but it stands on its own just fine without it.
It is the story of a very annoying minister, a real obnoxious jerk who happens to be a womanizer. He has no redeeming social value. He is the one who ends up getting amnesia, after falling from a rowboat in a lake while in the process of faking his own death in order to begin life anew with his girlfriend, ditching his wife and her son.
That is where Sally Kirkland comes in. She's funny. The man, now with amnesia, wanders into her motel, and she won't let him go. She's a lonely and crazy woman, and she decides that this man is her soul mate, even if she has to tie his wrists and ankles to the bed to keep him there.
Meanwhile, both his wife and his girlfriend have a tough decision to make. Should they kill him for the insurance or not? Ally Sheedy does an excellent deadpan job as the wife. I remember enjoying her in Breakfast Club so many years ago.
This movie reminds me of the great song by the Dixie Chicks, Goodbye Earl."
