Worth watching.
17 August 2001 | by (Venice, FL) – See all my reviews

A very clever screen play. The movie is definitely a 'dark comedy'. I first thought, "Oh no, not another junk movie with blazing guns". But as the plot twisted and intertwined I had a new respect for the writer. Some parts are predictable and others will take you by surprise. A very shrewd lady. Well worth the time to watch.
