At the climax of the movie, Alan Paley is chasing Rebecca up the stairs, when she kicks him in the face and he falls backwards, it is quite obviously a stunt double and not the actor. The double is much younger, and even has different hair color. See more »
Just what Madonna wanted to be--the latest Sharon Stone knock-off
Trashy sex-melodrama might've been much more fun had it the slightest sense of humor; alas, all the laughs here are unintentional, and the straight-faced actors just end up looking foolish. Willem Dafoe seems on auto-pilot throughout, cast as a Defense Attorney opposite Madonna, playing a woman who is suspected of killing her wealthy older lover with too much rough-housing in the bedroom. Grubby nonsense with a cliché-ridden script, B-movie characters, and a silly finish. For camp-addicts, a hoot; all others beware. Released to video in R, NC-17, and Unrated versions, none of which managed to improve on the ludicrous screenplay. *1/2 from ****
