Great pair of ... saves this movie.
29 May 2004 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This movie had some great ideas, but unfortunately the way it was made ... no, it is not boring, but it is not enough entertaining either - remote comes handy at many parts. Reading other comments I noticed with surprise how many people liked Alice Krige's performance. To me it was pathetic and pretentious at best. She plays her role with so much "sweetness" that any normal personal may literally throw up at the end of the movie like after eating few boxes of chocolates and drinking few cans of super-sweetened condensed milk. Both taste great in little doses, overdose end ups with vomits, and so is Alice Krige's performance here. However there is an instant cure for it, kind of vaccine - also contained within this movie as well ;-) Perhaps it is not "performance", I don't dare to call it that much, but lets just say that the extended scenes and closeups of nude Laura Elisabeth Harris, proudly showing off her nice, natural pair of breathing devices - they really made up for the damages done by Krige!(I dont want my post to be taken down in any near future for using anatomically correct - but politically incorrect - words like "bre_st", "ti_s" etc). So: if youre a straight male - rent it! Your eyes will enjoy Harris in her prime. And if youre a female - you may actually Balthazar Getty in his prime, or you may even like Krige's role...

My rating: 6/10 (solely for showing Laura Harris' great stuff in this movie).
