Not Too Bad, But Not Very Good, Either
11 May 2005 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This film starts off fine, but fails along the way. Duffy does his best, but he lacks the proper edginess to pull off his character. Someone like Willem Defoe or James Woods would have been far better in the role. Hyland is attractive, but hardly sexy or pretty enough to drive Duffy's character to distraction.

The finale is simply ridiculous. What person would commit such an act in broad daylight, in a city park? Any intelligent person would have done it indoors, hidden from public view.

Anyone expecting a lighthearted sexual romp starring Dallas's Bobby will be in for a shock. It's quite the opposite. He's put on a few extra pounds and seems in constant need of a bath. It seems odd to me that any man who is as attracted to the woman as he, would allow himself to remain as scroungy as Duffy's character. It just doesn't make any sense.

Don't expect any happy endings, and it might be worth a look, just to see Patrick Duffy play against type.
