I am always interested to see what actors can and will do in their work. I got such a strong Klute vibe from Ms. Griffith in the beginning of this movie. And it was nice to see Ed Harris just be Dad. The story itself is one of those adult fantasies that utilizes the kid mystique. Of course the-Hooker-and-the-Dad plays out an adult fantasy of its own. It turned out not to be a movie i would share with kids, in spite of its rating. It's a "yeah, sure" movie, white bread with way too much jam. BUT, i'm still glad i saw the work of the six pros who make it a viable (okay enjoyable--i enjoyed it)i'm-too-tired-tonight-to-move home entertainment. Yes, Virginia, there is a Hollywood.
