So Kleptomania is not something that people think of as a good movie. Why am I not surprised? What is somewhat surprising, though, is why a talented actress like Amy Irving would chose to be involved in this one. Sure, it's a leading role and the character is sort of interesting, but honestly, there's so much better that she can be doing, why this?
But since I appreciate the talents of Amy Irving and there was nothing else on, I did watch it and um, while it passed the time alright, she's...certainly appeared in better. Perhaps it was the somewhat uneven storyline(two women, Irving and Patsy Kensit, join up together and steal a lot of people's possessions), the gratuitous "erotic" sequences(Irving's character acting repulsive with a necklace, her character not wearing anything, etc. I was so repulsed I had to turn it), and particularly Patsy Kensit's grating, annoying, and extremely unlikeable character that make me feel this way. Perhaps she felt this was a chance to diversify a little bit and it certainly is well, quite different from such films as "Crossing Delancey" and "Voices," but really, there are better films out there.
