Nikki DeMarco: Why do you care what I do?
Tim: Because I have been madly in love with you since the day we met, and if you miss out on a great opprotunity my heart will shatter into millions of pieces.
Nikki DeMarco: Oh Tim, don't sell yourself short.
Tim: You're right. I am just one of those guys 'be quiet, say something stupid and let it blow up in my face.'
Nikki DeMarco: Tell you what. You love me? Pay my tip.

Dull, cliched, unbelievable, slow.
10 June 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this more out of morbid curiosity than from any real desire to see what happened next. Every cliche in the book is here, plus red herrings that have absolutely nothing to do with the plot that seem to be pursued way too far.

I loved their casting of Alex, though. He's a total dreamboat -- powerfully magnetic, sensual, articulate, and just wicked enough to hold the attention. Stole every scene he was in, which wasn't too hard considering nobody else was even vaguely sympathetic. It's too bad the heroine wasn't more sympathetic.. it was hard to care about her at all (or see why anybody else cared about her), she was so rude, self-obsessed, almost abusive, and brittle.

I also really disliked the directing -- every trick in the book is employed, or rather overemployed, such as ominous music, sudden noises, and excessive foreshadowing. Basically, this was just a very non-thrilling thriller that said nothing new at all.
