Over a decade before Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were mocked for appearing in Gigli while being a real-life couple (Bennifer), real-life couple Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick appeared in this flaming pile of rubbish.
This is a really silly rom-com about a couple whose love-making is so incendiary that they literally set things on fire.
Completely unremarkable, except for the fact that it starred real-life couple Bacon (who doesn't sizzle) and Sedgwick, who don't really do much to make the film worthwhile in any sense of entertainment. In fact, it's all rather trashy and if it starred a higher profile celebrity couple, it probably would have been met with the same reception as the forementioned turkey.
3/10
