Sporting a ridiculous plot with unbelievable twists in the last 20 minutes, EXCEPTION TO THE RULE becomes a bore quickly because the protagonist is quite dumb and you can predict what will happen next during the first 3/4 of the film.
Kim Cattrall is stuck with a dumb villainess role, Sean Young phones in her performance (she has so little to do, who can blame her), and William Devane is his usual self. Eric McCormack works waaay too hard at times trying to be intense, and he's not a bundle of leading man charm.
