Slater + chaos=cool stuff
11 July 2003 | by (MIDWEST) – See all my reviews

This one truly didn't appeal to me for the obvious reasons...it seeming sleazy or so, but I always know Helen Slater prevails, and I had a hunch this movie would do so as well. Slater is sexy and strong in character as she holds the film on her shoulders (not including a game Jeffery Tambor). This twisted humor bender

has more twists than a twizzler,GOOD or BAD? I say good, no other actress can play innocent in a sexy way like Slater! With deep character development , a

fine set-up, and a great rich Beverly Hills setting, this one sure is entertaining to the very end!
