Falls a little short ... but it has Jennifer Jason Leigh
16 March 2003 | by (Solana Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie seems to have been ruined by a plot or that never really got off the ground. The scripting was very weak and cliche at times. But the saving grace for this movie was Jennifer Jason Leigh. Jennifer Jason Leigh was this movie. Without her it would never have never left the can. There was some very good music in this movie that is very much part of the mid-90's Seattle grundge scene. The plot of this movie is really not worth commenting on. Well I think the cinema photography was quite good also. If you love Jennifer Jason Leigh and don't mind seeing her playing a down and out role then you will enjoy this movie. Don't expect much of anything else though.

I read a few comments here by those that either really like Jennifer and those that don't. But I think she is a unique and original and highly crafted actress in a field of look alikes and clones. And like I said that is the only reason to watch this movie.
