This is a pretty good movie, I'll admit that. I like Nicole Kidman, and Alec Baldwin is really just superb in a role like this.
The only problem I have with this movie is that it is a complete rip-off of a TV-movie made in 1990 called "The Operation", starring Lisa Hartman and Joe Penny in the Kidman and Baldwin roles respectively.
Typically, the move from low-budget TV-movie to Hollywood blockbuster has brought the expected revisions and 'beefing up' of the script. Everything added was extraneous and served no real purpose.
"The Operation" was actually a far better movie than this one, even if it was done on a movie-of-the-week budget. Watch it, and I think you'll agree.
