This thriller is adapted from the 1995 novel by James Patterson about a serial killer prowling a Southern university. Washington, D.C., forensic psychologist Dr. Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman) is also a best-selling author. After his niece Naomi (Gina Ravera) is reported missing, he heads his Porsche for Durham, North Carolina, where eight young women have been reported missing. Bodies are found by local policemen (Cary Elwes and Alex McArthur), along with the killer's signature, "Casanova."

Even those engrossed by the build-up here are likely to kiss off the rest after suffering through Girls' groaner of a wrap-up.

A thrill-less thriller. Too violent for kids.

There is a critical void in the middle--the villain.

like a good-looking blind date who promises dinner and a movie, then takes you to Burger King and "Wishmaster," the spell dissipates quickly, leaving you feeling seduced and abandoned.

When a kidnapping victim escapes from a demented serial killer's hideout, you may want to carefully check the area in which she's found for the aforementioned hideout

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

A perfect example of a film that doesn't do anything particularly badly but sorely suffers from a lack of uniqueness.

Audience Reviews for Kiss The Girls

Okay thriller. I felt like it could have been better than it was, but kept me interested most of the way through and had a good ending. I don't watch a lot of this type of thing, so i didn't find it too predictable, though it might have been for a fan of the genre. I like Ashley judd as an actress and i think she is good here.

A woman escapes from her kidnapper and returns to help the police to rescue other girls. Good thriller. Good cast.

It wasn't an awful film altogether, but it wasn't exactly a crime thriller. Sure, it had all the elements of the original novel, but it truly lacked the true to form Alex Cross, the propiety of serial killers, or suspense. Maybe it's just me, but it felt a tad stilted.

A decent detective film, adapted well from the book.
