User Reviews

a very useless movie
28 December 1999 | by milla4everSee all my reviews

I accidentally stumbled upon this 'movie' while zapping over my 60 dutch channels. Well, because it was very late and there wasn't anything else on, I continued to watch this low-budget picture. I like to torture myself from time to time. Colin Firth is a dumb newlywed whose bride runs away on their honeymoon. So, guess what, he starts to look for her. But his wife is a loony. Lisa Zane doesn't play her character with any mystery. You only get irritated by her. Oh yes, her brother Billy plays Firth's best friend and what an acting achievement that was. I urge you to go to dentist rather than to see this movie. Lisa Zane can't save it with her looks alone.
