Truth is stranger than fiction. And here, as is often the case, one is not sure what the truth is, exactly. A bizarre case which will make you look at tabloid headlines a little bit differently from now on.

This is the kind of film that is virtually impossible to classify, primarily because what the director was trying to show or accomplish was never really apparent beyond his enthusiasm for sharing accounts of such bizarre events. Definitely one to watch and mull over. Some adult themes and content.

i was looking forward for nudity but sexual content ???? are u kidding me ?

This movie is tragic at best, a troubled woman and her misadventures with the press. Errol Morris captures her angst without catering to her madness. A striking, unusual story, not perfect but definitely entertaining.

I guess Morris is making fun of the viewers of this film for falling for tabloid exploitation again

Errol Morris does it again!! This film tackles many subjects without ramming it down your throat. The story-line at times can be hard to digest. Reminded me of the "Crazy Love" doc. The Mormon church has a real public-relations problem on their hands. Their only solution is to make it worse.

A hilarious film with a twist at the end that I never saw coming.

A documentary, but tongue-in-cheek.
