Kept me interested
11 January 2001 | by kelev1980See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on a premium movie channel on cable TV and, unlike 95% of the things I watch on TV, I didnt find myself channel surfing. The movie kept me intrigued from start to finish.

Because I wasnt a soap opera fan, I didnt know who Kim Delany was, but she sure was attractive. Still is (NYPD Blue). Especially seeing her in the nude lovemaking scenes, the movie was very captivating!
