well worth staying with it
9 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Movie starts as another ho-hum crime/suspense thriller, but it's chilling to hear truth about our culture spoken so plainly in a media package. I have no doubt that the talk-show TV execs will not want to show this too widely even if it was given to them free of charge. Well worth sticking with it. David Morse is one of those actors whose face you remember having seen somewhere, but you can't remember in which show -this movie really showcases his ability to carry a feature length film. I didn't think Terri Garr added much as the ex-wife - maybe I've seen her play that same type of 'tired of putting up with a difficult husband' role too many times.
