I felt this was a nice flick,a very different concept from what i've seen so far,of thriller movies.And the mood of the movie in spite of it being a thriller,was very light which made it all the more enjoyable with funny scenes aplenty in between.and the most surprising thing was that Kate Beckinsale kind of looks nice even with the ultra short hair,very unexpected i should say.
Nice performance by Kate Beckinsale,and the rest of the crew.Two of the nude scenes could've been done away with and one in particular,where she stares at the picture naked.There was really no need for that i felt. But it was that casual theme of the movie that you wouldn't really say it doesn't fit in.Thats about it,overall an enjoyable movie.
