A dark comedy about an eclectic group of strangers invited to a downtown bar by a mutual ex-lover, Nikki Franklyn, a maddeningly sexy, unpredictable and possibly insane young woman who's recently gotten out of prison for murdering her last ex-boyfriend. The party really gets started when Nikki herself arrives, hauling her latest lover and fiancee, the morally challenged lawyer who'd been handling her case. She's mysterious about her intentions and her current and former lovers soon realize they are all caught in one of her brilliant, mischievous mind-games with possible deadly consequences. By the night's end, revenge will be had, new romance will bloom, and Nikki will have delivered on her reputation as the sexy evil genius. Written by
The movie is very cleverly written. Three of Nikki's former lovers are brought together with no clue as to why. Through the sharing of their past experiences with her, they try to piece together her reason for their meeting. It's done in such a way that you are constantly draw possible conclusions and then throwing them out, only to bring them back once you learn something new. The comedy is clever and not overly goofy. The drama helps you connect with some characters while making you nervous about others. It makes for a thrilling mystery that's not too heavy, but still heavy enough to make it thrilling. I was surprised multiple times while watching this movie. I think that's what I liked the most about it: it wasn't predictable. Definitely a good movie.
