Malice is a movie for a subtle change in the mood. An attractive, delving, slow plot is enough to render you time for a bathroom break in between and a couple errands around your TV room but still keep you interested. The ending twist is what's bound to raise your eyebrow, maybe a twitch, but it will. Aaron Sorkin and Jonas McCord bring about their ability to utilize free time into this script, though it's not epic or anything, but they got you by a finger. Performances aren't anywhere close to laudable but their appearances, especially Nicole Kidman, are enchanting enough. Do remember to send your kids off around before Kidman & Pullman's bed scene. One aspect that nettled me was poor dialogues, weren't as good as they were needed in a thriller like this, and maybe a tad more enthusiasm from director Harold Becker would have gone a long way.
Check out the synopsis section for a better view on the film. Overall I'd give it 6 out of 10 for a good one time watch. You wouldn't be compelled to buy the DVD or anything, but maybe watch it again on one of the TV channels if sighted. There were some scenes that disable you to watch it with your kids, but who wants to watch a thriller starring Alec Baldwin with kids, right? So go on, it's okay, grab your husband/wife, get a bowl of chips or popcorn and click play at around 10pm. It'll make your night, maybe right after 10 minutes or so into the film.
