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 ...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The situation is unbelievable, the characters are laughable, and the dialogue is exploding all over the place like an overripe peach.

August 3, 2001
A dull, languid film full of unsurprising plot twists and ludicrous soap opera-style melodrama.

Cristofer sabotages his movie by killing most of the suspense and robbing it of logic.

[Cristofer] presents it like one of those late-night HBO softcore flicks that tries to be 'artistic' and fails miserably.
August 3, 2001
One the most laugh-out-loud funny movies I've seen all year. However, it's not being billed as a comedy.

August 2, 2001
[Cristofer] gets the look of art but not the pulse.
August 2, 2001
The actors have so little chemistry delivering tired dialogue that the sluggish direction by Michael Cristofer ... is merely the final insult.
August 2, 2001
Banderas' and Jolie's characters are not recognizably human. They are engineered to fit the mechanics of plot.

If it had more panache, it would tumble into the infamous so-bad-it's-good category, but that's too positive a label for this sad-sack saga.
August 2, 2001
The film aspires to Hitchcock ... but it comes off like one of those soft-core Red Shoe Diaries flicks you see on cable TV.

We haven't had this much tawdry fun since Pia Zadora and Bo Derek's heydays.
