Jennifer Jason Leigh,
When Nicole met David; handsome, charming, affectionate, he was everything. It seemed perfect, but soon she sees that David has a darker side. And his adoration turns to obsession, their dream into a nightmare, and her love into fear.

I rewatched this film tonight and was absolutely appalled at how bad it was. What was bad was not the acting; what was bad was not the storyline--it was every contrivance possible put in here to make this girl as stupid as a goat. These ridiculous contrivances were annoying and belittling and insulting. There are so many missteps in this movie that it becomes a game at some point to count them. There is no way to point out them all. If one likes this kind of game while watching a movie, then this one is heaven on earth for you. I don't know that an intelligent review can be given of this movie, because it's clearly aimed at an IQ of 32. Some movies are so bad, they're worth watching--this is one of those movies. Oh and this movie continues that oh-so-sickening trend of giving Julia Roberts a slow motion guffaw with those 98 teeth a'gleamin'. That just never gets old, does it? Eek!
