A movie that's a little incoherent...
2 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

A young boy's parents are brutally murdered by the mob. Twenty years later, he becomes a geeky law student (Evan) who bumps into this beautiful co-ed (Elise) who's seriously interested in him. As their relationship grows deeper (and she becomes his fiance), he begins to slack in school. After Evan's best friend (Cal) motivates him to get back on track, Evan ends up getting hired by one of the best law firms in the States. To celebrate his achievement the guys head out to a strip joint....but one of the strippers is suprisingly familiar...it's Elise! But Elise isn't the only surprise at the strip joint...the owner of the strip joint is also a familiar face....

Elise feels that Evan can do better without her and breaks off the engagement. As time passes, Evan becomes cold and callous and focuses only on his work. As one of the best lawyers in the field, Evan ends up with a client who's accused of killing her husband. Who's that special client? Elise! Once again, they hook up...and trouble starts to surface...
