It could be said that America is now an imbecile society: because this movie exemplifies a mature theme with mature actors that participate in a mature story, and the film has been overlooked at being good entertainment. It is underrated, and that's surprising because of its romance and exotic locations: two of the basic and desirable necessities in entertainment - (along with an attractive actress and actor; which this does have) - (no bimbo representations to tantalize the teenies). Though it may be true that there are uncommon events that take place to provide the story, (one being that the drug induced Gidley gets hypnotized to carry a list of people in her mind, in order to get passed customs), this movie is not dull or slow; which makes me want to say that it's a shame that way too many American viewers are lacking style! Come on people, watch this movie with patience, and rate it higher.
