Ugh.
25 May 2002 | by (TEXAS) – See all my reviews

This was not a good movie. Tea Leoni never closed her mouth in the movie...it just kind of hangs opened...slack jawed. Her reaction shots makes her look like she is giving the evil eye. I could not suspend my belief for this movie...I didn't buy one minute of the premise. Why was she the only one with a thick accent? Don't answer. I already know the answer. Don't bother with this one. Hope this helps.
