Well-known San Francisco bars and restaurants in the film include Tosca Cafe and Vesuvio, both on Columbus Avenue in the North Beach district, and Red's Java House at Pier 40 on the waterfront. Several scenes were also filmed at the Palace of Fine Arts with its unmistakable rotunda and lagoon. See more »

I can hear your heart beating. Sounds like you've got an animal in your chest, trying to get out. Sounds like blood. Sounds like flesh.

What's this? *What* *is* *this*?
It's my gun.

Let me begin by saying - I love mysteries/thrillers and I really like Ashley Judd. I think she's a cutie and a pretty good actress. But this movie is really lame.
They (whether it is the screenwriter/director/editor or a combination of all three, I'm not sure) cheat throughout the entire movie. It's hard to explain without giving away the ending but the red herrings that they toss in are just unfair to the viewer.
Also, after having watched all of the back-story on the DVD extras, apparently one of their prime objectives while making this movie was to maintain realism throughout. That's one of my main problems with the script. It was very unrealistic. Although there were probably 50 or 60 glaring errors I will just mention two of them. When the bodies start turning up and it becomes apparent that Judd has slept with them, in real life, she would have been yanked from the case so fast it would have given her whiplash. I talked to a friend of mine, a Dallas police officer, and he agreed wholeheartedly. He said that to keep her on the case would have been laughable.
Speaking of laughable, that is the second problem I have with the movie. Every time Ashley Judd swills down another glass of wine and started to pass out, half of our audience started squirming in their seats (out of embarrassment), the other half just laughed out loud. It was pretty ridiculous. To top it off, the dialog throughout is rather inane.
The ending is as bad as the rest. Save your time on this drivel.
