Good Cast Does Well
18 November 2002 | by (White Plain, N.Y.) – See all my reviews



I was quite taken in by this movie. Seeing a very young Helen Hunt, Kelly McGillis, and Alec Baldwin was worth the viewing alone. Kevin Dobson makes a good scoundrel as well. Yes, the story has been done before, but for some reason I couldn't take myself away from it. I recommended it highly.
