And I don't do windows
5 October 2003 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

**SPOILERS**Ridiculous movie about a crazed lesbian Andrea, Liz Ashley, who is so obsessed with Emily, Talia Shire, that she gets some degenerate taxi driver Lawrence don't call me Larry, Rick Petrucelli, to break into Emily's apartment and force her to sob and shriek into a tape recorder so Andrea can later listen to it to her hearts desire.

With Lawrence so stupid that one afternoon when he picks up Emily, what a coincidence in his cab he blows his cover by insisting that he knows her from somewhere; yeah jerk you know her from assaulting her a few days ago. Which has Emily take notice of him and call the police to have him arrested.

With Andrea so jealous of anyone that she suspects of standing in the way between her and Emily that she slashes them to death including Emily's 70 year old neighbor Mr. Marx ,Michael Gorrin, and even Emily's cat Jennie. "Windows" has the heaviest breathing that I ever herd in a movie! Breathing that would rival any porno film and even make the most obscene phone callers blush.

Talia Shire comes across very unconvincing as the damsel in distress from the big bad Liz who seems to have trouble trying to look terrified or even scared of her. There's also an interesting side note to the movie: Emily's male love interest Joseph Cortese, Det. Bob Luffrono, looks so much like Salvestor Stallone that for a moment I thought that I was watching "Rocky II". "Windows" is only good for some unintentional laughs which you get a lot of in it.
