This is one of those untaxing time-killers where you spend a lot of time pondering which of its actress's changing hairstyles you like best.

Serious flick that feels more like a satire of a Robert Redford film.

There is no real sexual tension between [Pfeiffer and Redford] from the get-go, so when they finally do get together, it feels forced, ungenuine.
