No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
An adequate psychological thriller on a topical theme -- Repressed Memory Syndrome -- but with little special quality, few frills or thrills, and a relaxed, almost languid exposition.
It's an easy-to-watch movie that will be even easier on video, where it should turn up any minute.
It's mysterious and sexy enough to keep tension alive until, too bad, the whole thing collapses with a twist ending that is nearly laughable.
[Hall] can't triumph over the problems in the script, or tie up all the loose ends, but his brisk, competent approach does minimize the effects of these flaws.
Here's a sure method to guess whodunnit in bad mystery thrillers: pick the suspect most likely to shock the audience and you have the killer.
It's basically a direct-to-video erotic thriller blown up to big-screen proportions, but the stars are attractive and it's passably entertaining -- right up to the ridiculous twist ending.
The answer to the mystery was a surprise to me, but I didn't find the answer very convincing.
There's plenty of sex. There's little plot. There's reason to watch something else.
and never watch anything with Banderas and DeMornay co-starring...
The film is rife with unexpected revelations and twists but the filmmakers' sly maneuvering, instead of sucking the audience deeper into this psychological thriller, are apt to make them feel manipulated.
