good one
11 September 2000 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

This was a surprise. Sharp written, some black humour, pretty good thriller alltogether, kinda thing you just have to look all the way end. Actress Elizabeth Peña is really good, she steal every scene she's in. So is McCarthy, great chemistry between them. Well, basicly this is one of those "We had a party last night, now we got a dead body, who killed him, should we call police?" -kind of a thing. I saw it from TV and it was presented widescreen, which was nice.
