[after having sex with a woman in The List]
Can I ask you something? Why do you do this?
Wall Street Belle:
For the same reason that men do it - the economics of the arrangement. It's intimacy without intricacy. I work past midnight almost every night.

This movie is supposed to be a thriller, but is unfortunately quite short of "thrills".
My biggest complaint would be the movie's pace - it is very slow, and at times quite boring.
There are far too many implausabilities and plot holes, but even if you suspend your disbelief and just accept the story being told, it's still not a very good movie.
The script just isn't very good.
This is by no means the worst movie ever, however if you're looking for a GOOD thriller, I would not recommend this movie as one.
It's a shame really, because Hugh needs another good movie to boost his career. His last few have not been critical or box office smash hits (save the X-Men franchise), and I'm starting to seriously doubt his ability to pick good scripts. Hopefully "Australia" will turn his sadly not- so-good streak around.
