What was the audience's reaction to the movie The Crying Game
? (spoilers inside)

Since I was all of eleven when the movie came out, the "she's a man, baby" thing flew over my head, but it still became part of my pop culture knowledge. Watching the movie today, I can't help but wonder how my reaction would have been different if I didn't already know the plot twist. (Strangely enough, I watched Stargate:SG1 recently, and I thought Jaye Davidson's character was played by an androgynous female, not an androgynous male.) So how did people react, how was the movie marketed, what was the general attitude when this movie came out?
