Though written and directed by a Pulitzer Prize winner, Original Sin is better known as the picture in which a naked Angelina Jolie (by then a certified Oscar winner) and Antonio Banderas do the horizontal mambo. [Blu-ray]

What we have here is simply an erotic thriller with so many melodramatic turns, it eventually becomes laughable.

Cristofer takes liberties with the novel's downbeat ending and tacks on a happily ever after coda that seems more in keeping with something made under the studio system ...

While some scenes are splendidly produced, Banderas and Jolie lighting the screen with danger and amore; others fall flat.

As they engage in open-mouth kissing, they smack loudly like a couple of preschoolers woofing down greasy hamburgers.

High on lust and low on logic, the preposterous Original Sin is an erotic thriller that evokes more laughs than sweat.
