Bridget Gregory has a lot going for her: she's beautiful, she's intelligent, she's married to a doctor. But all of this isn't enough, as her husband Clay finds out. After she persuaded him to sell medicinal cocaine to some drugdealers, she takes off with the money, almost a million dollars, and goes undercover in a mid-American smalltown. Because Clay has to pay off a loan shark who'll otherwise damage him severely, he keeps sending detectives after her, trying to retrieve the money. When Bridget meets Mike Swale, a naive local who is blinded by her beauty and directness, she devises an elaborate, almost diabolical scheme to get rid of Clay once and for all. Written by

I was sucked in by the high ratings and expected something intelligent but instead was annoyed for 90 minutes without the payoff at the end.
Fiorentino plays s person who thinks that they are smarter than everyone else. This only works when that character is *really* more clever than everyone else. This requires an *intelligent* plot. Instead, the plot twists all depend on the other characters acting in incredibly stupid ways. Thus, when everything that the smarmy lead does, no matter how stupid and predictable works out, it just irritates and annoys. Had it been a bit lighter hearted it might have been bearable and to be fair, there are a few funny lines that seem to satisfy the fans.
But for me, unless you enjoy watching a C-student's concept of a criminal mastermind, this was one of the most irritating films I've had the misfortune to sit through in a long time...
