Audience Reviews for Mortal Thoughts


A woman's abusive husband (Bruce Willis) is murdered quite bloodily in the back of a van at a fairground. The wife's friend (Demi Moore) is suspected - will she get away with it? It's up to Detective John (Harvey Keitel) to determine. Somewhat memorable after all these years, but nothing earth-shattering.

Director Alan Rudolph's eccentric style brings some interest to a fairly routine story. Although Demi Moore has a creditable stab at the heroine, it's Glenne Headly who steals the show.

Dean McKenna

Super Reviewer

Another former movie network space filler. Willis and Moore together on the screen. Oooh wow! Why can't Hollywood couples actually find something worth while to appear in together. Looks like they did it for the same of doing it.
