Clever Deception
23 March 2007 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

Ally Sheedy is an absolute dream in this dark comedy surrounding an ex-wife who destroys her ex-husband's would-be career on the brink of its explosion. What results instead is a messy, complicated, near-bloody implosion, which generates a nice movie experience.

Nice is as good as it gets, but there are worse ways for you to spend your time, as this is a delightful movie. It's not a gut-buster, nor is it a popcorner, but it IS intelligent and entertaining, with minor plot twists and turns you don't expect.

It rates a 6.1/10 from...
