Audience Reviews for The Temp

    Picked this up for $6. Hadn't seen it before, but looked like a bit of 90's tack I might enjoy. Actually, it wasn't too bad. The glass in the cookies scene alone raised this movie half a star. What I didn't like was the end. Seriously? The woman is crazy and has killed several people and he thinks she's going to take that?!

    A good cast almost rescue this 90s "B" movie cross between an 80s yuppie flick and Fatal Attraction. Story is quite weak and a little silly.
