Overlooked Tarantino gem.

i did not select violence for this film because it is very mild violence that you would find in a pg-13 movie. there is a lot of profanity and a brief but kind of graphic sex scene that lasts for about five seconds

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
