Eschewing his standard performance of smugness and distance, using intense, blank stares, Spader actually emotes with his lips too, suggesting that there's more going on than just a slimy scoundrel who we should pity because his livelihood is threatened.

A psychological thriller that explores sexual politics from many perspectives

Madchen Amick is super-sexy. Some of the love scenes are steamier than cooked rice. If that's your idea of entertainment, you've found your baby.

This was not a very satisfying thriller.

This psychological thriller is rather coldly calculated, but slickly made and unpredictable - it will certainly hold your interest, through you may hate yourself in the morning.

There was only one reason why I watched this and that reason was satisfied. Anyway, the actual movie was lame. I was distracted by above reason and in the olden days I would probably give this a high rating, but I'm looking past that, and rating fairly (sort of).

Yeah, so without being cryptic... the plot was lame, acting was ok, good endind but the movie was fairly sucky.
