Suzanne Stone (Maretto) knows exactly what she wants. She wants to be a television newscaster and she is willing to do anything to get what she wants. What she lacks in intelligence, she makes up for in cold determination and diabolical wiles. As she pursues her goal with relentless focus, she is forced to destroy anything and anyone that may stand in her way, regardless of the ultimate cost or means necessary. Written by

This one starts fast and just runs from there. It's not a perfect film so there are a few flat spots but over all lots of laughs and even a few surprises. Dillon is sweet and passive as the loving husband and is seemingly wasted as his writing is contrary to the majority of his other roles. But he pulls it off even though he's not in that many scenes. Lots of fun TV faces here too, Newman, Red and of course Mr. Tortelli! But the best cameo of all has to be Mr. Cronenberg.
A fun, stylized, moody film that does have a nice level of intensity and to it's credit comes full circle. It has an ending and a nice one at that. No loose ends or ambiguity, very appreciated. No problem recommending this one to just about anyone, even if they're not a Kidman fan. I'm not!
