Lisa Roberts: I have no idea.
William Karp: Now didn't you tell us you were raped 6 months ago?
Lisa Roberts: Yes. But I don't see what that has to do...

No Common Sense
29 August 2004 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie should win an award for dumbest female protagonist. It's hard to have any sympathy for the Cortney Cox character, Lisa, because every time she is given an opportunity to avoid a threat, she decides to remain. She has a million opportunities to leave this town and the two nuts who are threatening her, but she remains. You have to wonder if Lisa has any shred of common sense because time after time she does the exact opposite of what common sense would dictate.

If being an empowered woman means staying in a mobile home in the desert in a town of strangers and continually letting strange men into your home even when you know they are dangerous and never asking your neighbors for help, then the life span of such a woman is going to be very short.

Comic book artists have very tight deadlines that they must meet each month.

It was amazing to see Lisa working calmly at her drawing board, pencilling, inking and lettering a complete comic while spending her days and nights being nearly raped, chased across the desert in her Chevette by a police cruiser and sticking a 5 inch knife in a police officer's thigh.

All in a days work for "EMPOWERED WOMAN" I guess.
