Unless you're already asleep, bail out at first inclination; it absolutely gets no better.
23 December 2000 | by (Montgomery Village, Maryland) – See all my reviews

This movie is so empty and vacuous it's hard even to comment.

"Man..."/"Fiance" falls into the suspense---you wish---psycho serial killer genre. Everything suffers from terminal malnutrition: the plot, the dialogue, the direction, the acting, the score, not to mention each of its two titles ("The Fiance"??? Really!). The actors are pros but have absolutely nothing to work with nor any apparent direction. The characters connect neither to each other nor to the plot, the bones of which have no meat on them and barely connect to each other. No effort is wasted on creating or building tension; when someone gets killed, it's a non-event.

One minimal plus: a couple of slightly interesting outdoor locations. (Ha! Now you can leave or go back to sleep.)

Pathetic!
