John Duigan's gently playful ****** comedy on the transformative powers of ****** manages to offer a measure of insight along with the sight of three surpassingly beautiful women scampering about ******. Hugh Grant stars as a young English clergyman who journeys to the rural abode of a notoriously controversial painter with orders to persuade him to remove one of his more blasphemous works from public exhibition. Yet, when the repressed cleric and his similar wife arrive, it's Sam Neill's painter and his trio of lover/models who prove far more effective at the art of persuasion. The film, which comes to focus on the young wife's gradual unfolding, is more interested in attitudes toward ******, and its relationship to character, than ****** itself. Grant and Tara Fitzgerald as his prim wife are perfectly cast as a pair in need of stimulation, and Neill is surprisingly good in this prankish departure from the kind of serious roles he usually plays. Elle MacPherson also acquits herself well, although after watching her frolic mostly ****** for two hours, the viewer's judgment may have been slightly compromised. Michael Costello, All Movie Guide
