What is it all about?
3 February 2003 | by (Lewiston, Idaho) – See all my reviews

That is indeed the question. This movie has a lot of questions, but -provide few answers.

For instance: Why is Kirk Douglas taking revenge on his ex wife? Is it because she divorced him? Because she is giving her son her new husband's name instead of his? Or is it something else?

We get no answers to these questions. Maybe he is blaming his ex for being called "Mousey?" Who knows!

Here is the bottom line: Kirk Douglas is engaging the people involved in a game of cat & mouse and we are not told why.

This is no way to make a movie, even for TV. If they are going to make movies-don't ask questions and then not provide answers. There are far worse movies than this, but at least most of them provide answers as to why the characters do what they do.
