Why??
27 June 2000 | by Rose-35See all my reviews

The only reason I even gave this movie a chance was because Peter Gallagher is one of my favorite actors. After it ended, I just sat there shaking my head wondering why he and Jamie Lee Curtis agreed to do this movie. Not one I'd sit down to again. I guess if you have nothing better to do, you could watch this film, but if you can think of ANYTHING else, do that please! I assure you, it will be more entertaining.
