Terrific, sly and witty dark comedy.
7 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While not the most original movie ever written, it is sharp fun if you pay attention. Some very funny clever lines. What most people don't seem to realize is that this is a dark comedy, sly and witty. D'Angelo is good, not great, and delivers some terrific "Joan Collins" style vamp lines that are very funny...if you understand you are watching a dark comedy, not "Medea" of some TV cop show. Very enjoyable, start to finish, mostly because of the sneaky clever writing, All the acting is solid, and Barbara Rush makes a welcome appearance, still beautiful. The directing is pedestrian, admittedly, (like in most movies) but the script is very funny. My wife and I laughed out loud at many of D'Angelo's snappy lines: she has her tongue firmly in cheek, and seems to be having a great good time. Recommended for a fun evening. Drink some wine and have a giggle.
