A memorable motion picture with four fiery performances

Boring adultery drama, but nice Ming-na nude scene.

July 14, 2003

The performances are all fine; it's the writer, composer, and director -- Mike Figgis all -- that spoil the show.

After a promising start, this look at adultery loses its way--and, in the end, anything resembling a point.

Three of the most obnoxious people ever born...all in one movie!

Winds up being a stylish soap opera more 'lit' than enlightening.

Suffers from its aloof and uninviting approach.

Audience Reviews for One Night Stand

Without Wesley Snipes this movie would have failed. Interesting turn of events bring two married cheaters together in a complete twist of events throughout the movie. A Chick flick but still worth 3 stars

This Wesley Snipes' drama movie is good, but rather bogus reationalization of the main characters' actions takes the bite out of a seductively photographed story aobut infidelity, friendship, and terminal illness.
