Lets just say it right now: 9 Weeks is really a high end Skinemax flick. Theres no plot. Theres no real acting. Theres nothing believable in this thing. You could hyave replaced Kim Basinger with Marilyn Chambers and Mickey Rourke with any random Hollywood actor under the age of thirty and make the same quality of film. The story goes like this: John (Rourke) meets Elizabeth (Basinger), who runs an art gallery in New York. He flirts. She says no. Then says yes. They do the no pants dance. John humiliates her. She almost leaves. No pants dance. Repeat. Theres your film. Basingers character is a dishrag not only for John, but for the film itself. Shes just set dressing and thats it. No real depth at all. John is even more shallow. He wears a siuit, works in an office, and is really into humiliation. The only use for this film a quarter of a century later is to make us realize that at least were not aging as bad as Mickey Rourke. This film is crap.

It was okay. I can't ever imagine why people thought/think that Rourke was/is hot. UGH!

A very steamy film, but unfortunately not much of a story.
