every girl needs to see this movie
13 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie opened my eyes to alot of things.

1. some men are just crazy.

2.The police don't help innocent people unless somebody hurts them or kills them.

3.that we need more people like larissa's mom.

Although I did not agree with what she was doing to her husband. She basically shut him out because he didn't do anything to kurt. if he would have kurt would have still won because her husband would have been in jail.

other than that point, i admire the fact that she would stop at nothing to protect her daughter. This is a movie that every woman needs to see.

The guy who plays kurt is an incredible actor. I just saw another movie with him in it i'll be commenting on that one too.
