Obviously, the main reason I wanted to check this movie was for its controversial reputation. Basically, it was supposed to be one of the most sexually explicit mainstream movies ever made and I can guarantee you that it does really deserve its reputation. Indeed, right from the very beginning, you get several sex acts going from masturbation, to straight sex, gay sex and even some SM. At the end ... read more

I'm not sure I agree with either of the previous reviews. Yes, there is a lot of sex in this movie and most of it only detracts from what little plot there is. It's just there to make you uncomfortable, and if you thought this was Red Shoe Diaries you are wrong. This is not a movie to arouse you.

"2.7. (Teatteri/35 mm) Olen kasvanut vaiheen yli, jolloin koin ahdistusta homopornon katselusta. Sitähän Shortbus pitkälti on, kyrpien imemistä, perspanoja ja sellaista.
