Mark Harmon shines in a romantic thriller, 16 July 2002
Author: George (georgelanz)
A great romantic thriller with wonderful characters. Mark Harmon shines as a private detective more at ease in a library than carrying a gun. Mimi Rogers is brilliant as the mysterious grieving widow and the film is extremely well made with a catchy Jazz music score and beautiful photography. A must-see.

Classic Hitchcockian Thriller, 26 August 2002
A wonderfully filmed, deliciously scored and brilliantly acted contemporary thriller. Mark Harmon plays a private eye the likes of which hasn't been seen often and Mimi Rogers is perfect as the woman with the missing husband who hires him. The wonderful direction of Ivan Passer makes this a classic in its own right.

A Masterpiece of the Detective Genre, 6 December 2002
Author: Connie Kramer
Mark Harmon plays a detective who doesn't carry a gun, more at ease
through the newspaper collection of the library than in a gun battle.
The story and direction are equally compelling and a masterful cast and great music score make this movie an undiscovered gem of a detective story.

Brilliant Film, 21 October 2002
Starting with a wonderful screenplay full of interesting characters, Ivan Passer crafted an amazing film. The performances are top notch as is the music and all the elements of this wonderful film. Mark Harmon and Mimi Rogers shine in two of the best parts they ever got to play.

A Repeated Pleasure, 18 September 2005
Author: randyritenour from United States
Fourth Story is a film that bears repeated viewings with ease.
The actors are perfectly cast and have an easy chemistry with each other (and not just Mark Harmon and Mimi Rogers - all the actors are perfectly cast from the biggest to the smallest part!) while the script is a model of clarity and fun that most writers would do well to emulate.
The music score is a joy and works like gangbusters.
It makes you wonder why most directors think of Jazz as a fad when it can be made to work so well in so many settings.
Overall it is a very worthy film that I can only hope will have a DVD release very soon.

If you would climb into a fourth floor window; why not jump?, 14 June 2003
Author: Michael O'Keefe from Muskogee OK
At times a little slow, but an above average TV drama with thrills and suspense. This psychological passage is about a private eye(Mark Harmon) and the woman(Mimi Rogers) who hires him to find her missing husband(Cliff De Young). Very watchable and personally I liked this a whole lot better than PROOF OF LIFE(2000)which is more or less the same story. Harmon is cool without trying to be macho. Miss Rogers is flawless and to die for. In support: M.Emmet Walsh, Paul Gleason and Michael Boatman.
