Richard. Hold it. Richard, what's the matter? I'm not selling those skis to my mother. Please, a more neon sound. Remember: to be free, to soar like an eagle, to slip the surly bonds of earth. Right? That's the feel.

Consenting adults has a strong cast, a decent script and a deeper than expected story, that builds and sustains enough tension throughout; without sinking into as much sexually explicit detail, as the title may suggest.
Kevin Kline, Kevin Spacey, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Rebecca Miller all portray there characters well, with Spacey and Miller stealing most of the credit.
Consenting Adults is a reasonably safe choice for most thriller fans, it's not the best out there; but its entertaining and intriguing enough to please.
