This Is A Great Sleeper!, 13 September 2000
Author: Mr. Opening Night from Los Angeles, CA

I saw this movie like at 2 am and I did not want to sleep until I saw the end, its a great story! Carrie Anne Moss as usual is beautiful in it and John Cullum was brilliant as a dimwitted but determined individual.
