I don't give you consent, for you to see this movie
You probably expect a sex thriller from the poster. If only if. It's title really doesn't make much sense in the midst of the story, you really have to be patient with. The way the movie ends in an action scenario is just plain stupid, out of whack. New neighbours Eddy (the always solid Spacey) and hot wife Miller who can really sing, befriend the more quieter Kline and wife, Mastrantonio, a work couple who are both in advertising as inferred in the opening scenes, with a little bit of a squabble too, for added measure. Their daughter is musically gifted and everything seems peachy creamy. One night the slightly shady Spacey throws Kline a proposition- exchanging wife's for the night. First thinking Spacey's crazy, he's enticed into the offer, which then his whole life becomes a nightmare, where he's framed for the grisly murder of Spacey's wife. Kline must clear himself, having a hell of a time doing so, where psycho con, Spacey, then moves in on Mastrantonio, playing the new daddy. Yeah, there are a couple of surprises, but really it's a weak thriller, wasted on a good cast in a movie where it's story works at a slow grind, you'll actually feel your teeth rubbing up against each other. I'll admit, my favourite scene in this flick, and I'm being serious here, is the opening jingle scene, only cause I like the jingle. In one heavy sense, the finale shootout scene comes as a blessing from all the slow moving b.s. we had to endure, prefore. A truly weak thriller, disappointing, considering this is from the same guy who made the much earlier Kline pic, Sophie's Choice. Make your choice at the DVD thriller section, choose not to watch this.
