Oh. Well, from what Charles told me, that thug had a jump on him from the very start. This is crazy. You never had a chance, did you?
Oh, I'm gonna get him back.
You're not getting anyone back. You have a family.
You're so right, Deanna. So right. You want to protect your family, 'cause at the end of the day, this is the most important thing in the whole world.

I was avoiding the film because of the lower ratings it had received but after several recommendations, I went and saw it and was surprisingly pleased with the whole film from start to finish. In my opinion, this could be very well one of the best thrillers of the year. The trailer for it really doesn't do it justice for what the movie really is; a dark, suspenseful, edge of your seat thriller. Jennifer Aniston does a great job breaking out of her Friends character that everyone associates her with and that so few sitcom actors have been able to do. Don't wait for this one to come out on DVD. You definitely want to catch this one in the theater.
