Um sub-Jade (e quem se lembra daquele longa dirigido por William Friedkin sabe o que ser um "sub-Jade" significa) que teria sido lançado diretamente no Cine Privê da Band caso não contasse com um elenco tão célebre.

An indigestible concoction of ingredients thrown together without the benefit of any serious consideration of logic.

When you advertise an erotic thriller and then give us a comedy, that's deception in any language.

A slick, cat-and-mouse thriller that unfolds with sharply-diminishing plausibility.

It is about as erotic as a midweek National Express coach journey to Hitchin.

The film plays like two movies in one and they are sadly somewhat in conflict with one another.

Stylishly directed and superbly acted but ultimately disappointing thriller, thanks to an over-familiar plot and some laughably bad dialogue.

This film would make a perfect commercial thriller for James Spader and Rob Lowe were it still 1994.

The all-too-obvious script weaknesses didn't spoil my fascination with the premise and where it took us. It also afforded me a whole new look at Williams.

There's not a twist in this flimsy and moth-eaten plot that isn't both contrived and transparent and not a character who hasn't been hopelessly manipulated by the needs of the narrative.

All of the lead actors involved are far above the material. If they weren't involved it probably would have premiered on Cinemax at 3a.m.

You'd think that with all the focus groups and test marketing Hollywood does that somewhere along the line someone would have said, "hey, don't you think this one strains credibility a bit too much?"

[Deception is] sluggish when it should be nimble, explanatory when things are clear, and loose with logic when rigor would be more apt.

(Deception) is a perfect example of an interesting plotline mixed in with some really cheesy and sappy moments.

Ultimately, the movie packs less erotic heat than even Horton Hears a Who! or Young@Heart.

...a hopeless 'erotic thriller' that, as it happens, is neither...

(This film is) not worthy of the work of Jackman, McGregor, and cinematographer Dante Spinotti. Not bad for an hour, but the ending is worse than ludicrous.

Everything is wrong pretty much from the start of this misbegotten adventure in Adrian Lyne territory, including but not limited to the strained mind games that drive the plot, and the tentative New York accents on the actors from Australia and Scotland.
