Quotes

Wade Handler: Did you think it was odd that, he still liked her a lot, and she hadn't really show him any real interest in over two years?
Mousy Julie: I thought it was the opposite of odd. Guys are drawn to her like bugs surround a bug lamp. For four years I've had the privilege of watching it.
Wade Handler: That bother you Julie?
Mousy Julie: Think you see the horns of jealousy? You got my angle? You might want to ask yourself why you're so interested in her. They think it's a cultish vulnerability... but it's just self obsession: The pea-brain ...

Why did people stay away ?
13 December 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I went with my younger sister for the sole purpose to see the lovely Katie Holmes. I didn't expect much. But trash, the movie was not. I was very impressed with the story, the acting, the Hitchcock-like suspense, and the turn that occurred at the end. My favorite part was the library scene with the eyes behind the bookshelf. A big stepping-stone for Katie Holmes, who I think will continue to get starring roles and turn into a Natalie Wood like star. She is both beautiful and a good actress. This film is definitely a renter, and should have been better accepted when it was released, critic-wise and box office-wise. *** out of ****. Watch it and enjoy.
