Only Stone manages to find any emotional depth in her character, and that's not enough reason to see the film.

It's a waxen, pretentious bore, and whatever chance it may have had of succeeding is foiled by casting so misguided that it's hard to imagine it wasn't meant as a vicious joke.

Stone deserves some points for playing a recognizable human being while Davidovich fares less well in an underscripted part, but what sabotages the story altogether is Gere's boundless narcissism.

This very loose adaptation (acknowledgement of the sources is buried in the end credits) attempts to goose things up here and there, but original's essentially meditative nature is left quite unfulfilled by the new approach and glamour cast.

Less neurotic and sexually charged than usual, Gere digs deep to find the source of his character's chronic indecisiveness.

Tespite the glossiness, it winds up seeming profoundly uneventful, perhaps because the car crash is the story's only real dramatic turn.

Looks nice, gives the sense that there's supposed to be something important going on here, but doesn't deliver the goods.

It also seems as though the filmmakers scored well in Symbolism 101.

Should he as an incredibly wealthy architect go back to his wife, Sharon Stone, or stay with his mistress, Lolita Davidovich? It's a question that ranks up there on the suspense-o-meter with "Paper or plastic?"

The only thing these characters have to talk about are the problems manufactured for them by the screenplay. No other conversations on any other subject amount to more than filler between crises.

The concept sounds reasonable until the characters start reciting some truly dumb dialogue.

Gere and Stone are fine with roles that do not overly tax their range, particularly in genre films, such as thrillers or mysteries. But these characters call for wide-ranging emotion.
