  • Unfortunately, Joseph Stefano, who wrote the original script, did not put into the hands of the director a story that is up to Mr. Quinn.

  • A totally misleading title may have made this a flop at the box office because it had a lot to recommend it as a movie.

    Jan 7, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Quinn cria um personagem carismático, mas o elenco feminino parece formado apenas por figuras paranóicas e controladoras.
