Storyline

Samantha Caine, suburban homemaker, is the ideal mom to her 8 year old daughter Caitlin. She lives in Honesdale, PA, has a job teaching school and makes the best Rice Krispie treats in town. But when she receives a bump on her head, she begins to remember small parts of her previous life as a lethal, top-secret agent. Her old chums in the Chapter are now out to kill her so she enlists the help of a cheap detective named Mitch. As Samantha remembers more and more of her previous life, she becomes deadlier and more resourceful. Both Mitch and Charly proceed to do the killing thing, the bleeding thing and the shooting thing. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Trivia

Geena Davis and then-husband director Renny Harlin checked how long she could hold her breath in their bathtub to prepare for the "water torture" scene. See more »

Goofs

In the water mill house, the actions used to raise and lower the water wheel change. For example, one moment the water wheel is lowered by turning the crank clockwise and the next moment the wheel is lowered by turning the crank counter-clockwise. Similarly, Daedalus first raises the wheel by turning the crank clockwise and then moments later raises it using a counter-clockwise turn of the crank. See more »

Quotes

Luke (A.K.A. Daedalus): Torture, yes, a woman's face never looked so quite beautiful as when it's distended in pain, witness the beauty of child birth.
Samantha: Untie me and ill make any face you want.
Luke (A.K.A. Daedalus): Let's not and say we did.

Enjoyable Thriller
5 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

I was about to go to sleep while I flicked through the channels one last time and happened to catch the beginning of "The Long Kiss Goodnight"- perhaps I missed the first minute or two. But I remembered I had marked the movie to watch and thought what the heck- I'll watch. I can honestly say that I really enjoyed those two hours. The scene with the truck was definitely fun, and at the same time terrifying (as you know the purpose of the truck and who's in it, I won't spoil it for anyone). The humor was great too, and the acting of the four leads (Davis, Jackson, Zima and Bierko) was quite enjoyable- as is this entire film.
