Emotionally Intense
16 September 2004 | by (Washington state) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it showed on The Sundance Channel. I found it to be an incredibly emotionally intense movie from the beginning. Granted the ending isn't what I expected, but the rest of the movie leading up to it more than makes up for that fact. Coyle possesses great writing and directing skills but at times his acting skills fall flat and tend to make for uncomfortable watching. Collins on the other hand, has shown that she is not just an incredibly talented comedienne, but is equally just as talented in the Dramatic genre. Although there were at least 2 parts in my opinion where Collins was a bit forceful in her delivery in that it didn't fit the mood of the moment, her performance in the rest of the movie was absolutely brilliant.
