I am videotape sure it is as good as the Lies jury apparently found it; it has more intelligence than sex, and is more clever than enlightening.

Cynthia presses Graham to explain what incident "spooked" Ann the preceding day. Graham briefly and reluctantly explains the sexual interview videotapes, and admits to Cynthia his sexual dysfunction: that he is impotent when in the presence of another person, and that he achieves gratification by watching these videos in private. Graham propositions Cynthia to make an interview tape, assuring her that no other person is allowed to see the tapes.
She believes him, and agrees. Cynthia reports doing a videotape with Graham back to Ann, who is horrified. Later Cynthia also tells John about her videotape and he also reacts very negatively though more than a little possessively.
Cleaning her home the next day, Ann discovers Cynthia's pearl earring in her bedroom she knows the earring belongs to her sister, since she had mentioned that she had lost it while vacuuming. Ann is then furious. She heads over to Graham's apartment with the intention of making a videotape.

But John also helps Graham see his ex Elizabeth in a more realistic way. He states, "She was no saint. She was good in bed, and she could keep a secret. That's all I can say about her.

Ann then goes to Graham's place and joins Graham on the front porch, as they appear to be a couple.
The film was written by Steven Soderbergh in eight days on a yellow legal pad during a cross country trip although, as Soderbergh points out in his DVD commentary track , he had been thinking about the film for a year.
Soderbergh's commentary also reveals that he had written Andie MacDowell 's role with Elizabeth McGovern in mind, but McGovern's agent disliked the script so much that McGovern never even got to read it.
