I began to wonder where the river came in
14 July 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

When a married woman's old lover comes back into her life things began to go to hell for her and hubby. The old flame had a suitcase full of wrongfully gained capital that he wanted the pair to help him smuggle south of the border, therefore an uneasy alliance was formed and a dangerous trek through the badlands was undertaken. I felt that Milland's character's actions at the end were way out of character: and just how is it that Quinn's character managed to bite those slugs out of the cases? Ever try that? The teeth will go first every time. Fairly entertaining but way too much sluggish dialogue.
