Very Entertaining and well acted
15 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

I disagree with many people on this film's quality. I thought the movie was great and I enjoyed watching it. The directing is good, the writing is better. Jamie Lee Curtis is great in this film, but she looks awful with blonde hair. Vanessa Redgrave is just as good as Curtis, and it's nice to see a familiar face in this film besides Curtis. Peter Gallagher is okay. Joanne Whaley and Luke Edwards give good performances. The cast is great in this film. Jamie Lee Curtis did not do this for the money. I saw it on Encore on evening, and the movie previewer said that Curtis said she took the role because this film allowed her to be the terrorizer instead of the terrorized, which is what she did mostly in the 70's and early 80's. I don't see what is so bad about this film. I give it a 7 out of 10
