Good, But Not Terribly Original
20 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie was enjoyable to watch and Lindsay Crouse and Zoe McClellan did fine jobs with their roles. As the movie wore on though it seemed so much like "Pacific Heights" with McClellan as the female equivalent to Michael Keaton's character in "Heights".
