A Pleasant Surprise
25 May 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I purchased this title with some apprehension; TV movies are not high on my 'Must See' list. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised after viewing this little-known gem! It has a little bit of everything: plot twists, suspense, action, sex, and a roughly bearded Brosnan (for Brosnan fans)!
