The Virgin Suicides

Prior to THE VIRGIN SUICIDES, Sofia is mostly known for her horrible acting in THE GODFATHER PART III. The chick got horrendously reamed for that one. I didn’t think she was so bad. Of course, I spent most of that movie drooling over her like Homer Simpson over a donut (or me over a donut for that matter). I don’t know what it is, but something about Sophia draws out all my primal urges. Well, not all of them, just the dirty ones.
