Rowena Price is a muckraking reporter for a New York paper. When her story about a closeted gay Senator who preaches family values is spiked, she quits and soon finds herself investigating the grisly murder of a childhood friend. Her friend had been dumped by ad exec Harrison Hill, so he's Rowena's prime suspect. Rowena gets a job at the ad agency as a temp, and she's soon the object of Hill's attentions. She's helped in her subterfuge by Miles Haley, a friend at the paper who has a secret thing for her. Everyone, it seems, has secrets, including Hill, who must keep his affairs from his wife - her money fuels his lifestyle. Murder will out? Written by
Miles' phone number (which we see when Hill reads the text message on Roe's mobile phone in the restaurant) is shown as 917-867-5309 - a nod to Tommy Heath's classic rock hit "867-5309/Jenny," which repeats that number (sans area code) in the refrain. See more »
When Mr. Miles is talking to Rowena on the phone, after she sent him the secret laptop audio transmission of Senator Sacs, a woman with long hair and eye glasses walks past his desk from the far left of the screen. When Mr. Miles stands up, the same woman goes passes his desk again from the far left of the screen again. See more »

What in the world has happened to Halle Berry? Can't she act any more? Judging from this movie I'd say: Yes - she can't... And Bruce Willis is ... well, he's Bruce Willis. And why does she have to participate in a mediocre thriller like this one? Because it is very mediocre. The beginning is quite promising, and I was ready for a nice, clean thriller. But what followed was like a bad version of some Michael Crichton novel. Oh, and the filmmakers filmed three different endings to the film, each with a different character as the killer? Then they must have chosen the worst ending. The film is not creative, not inventive, implausible, sometimes ridiculous. No, it's not a disaster. But a major disappointment.
