A sense of deja vu
2 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie before I saw "Malice". As far as I'm concerned, the plots are very similar except in the most minor of details. Whichever film I saw first I would have loved - it's my kind of thing -- and because I saw this first, I found it a wonderful movie, thoroughly interesting and enjoyable. I am a huge fan of Kathleen Quinlan, Joe Penny and Lisa Hartman and they all were shown to their best advantage.
