A poor softcore sex movie
29 April 2002 | by (Bedfordshire,England) – See all my reviews

Body of Evidence has all the hallmarks of a poor soft core porn movie . A naff script , lousy acting and that misty/cloudy look that you see so many times in low budget B movies. This film contains some of the worst over acting seen ever in a court scene acompanied by scenes you would never see in a court room. The question that i have to ask is why do good actors like Jullianne Moore and Willem Defoe take on movies like this? perhaps it is hard to tell how bad a movie is going to be when you agree to make one but surely they must a read this silly script or perhaps Defoe agreed to make this because of the activities he gets up to with Madonna and lets face it who can blame him, she was in her prime in 1993 and she did look good, shame her acting was not good as her sexual activities . 3 out of 10.
