Wow! Is this movie bad!
6 July 2003 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

Your basic guy meets girl, guy falls for girl, girl turns out to have multiple twisted personalities B-movie fare. And you'll never guess -- no, this isn't a spoiler, as the script is quite up front about this -- but she got that way because she was sexually abused as a child. Ho-hum. The friendly banter among the main characters is so wooden, the romantic sequences are so saccharine, and the sex scenes are so boring that the murder and psychopathology actually seem intelligent and refreshing by comparison. The only parts of this movie I enjoyed portrayed the female lead struggling to contain her various independent personalities -- these are hilarious, unintentionally of course, but hilarious none the less. There is a plot twist I won't reveal here, but you will pick up on it about 45 minutes before the big "surprise" is exposed. This is the only movie I have ever seen featuring Kathy Shower in which she doesn't seem pathetically out of her league -- the rest of the cast of this one acts at about her level, or maybe worse. What a waste of my time -- don't waste yours.
