Goofs

Edie and Pen were staying at the Reno Hilton. At the end of the movie, they were being chased by Pen's new lover on their way to the airport. The airport is less than a half a mile from the Hilton and they appeared to go through downtown which adds at least 10 miles to the trip from the Hilton to the airport. See more »

Cool movie.
23 August 1999 | by EmptyLeoSee all my reviews

I watched this late one night when nothing was on. I chose it for Jennifer Tilly. She's cool. I like Scott Glenn too. Ever since Silverado I've liked him. And he was excellent in The Silence of the Lambs. This is a good story about two women who quickly became friends. Shared stories and secrets about men (read Helen's review for more info).

I was glad I watched it. Hadn't seen Stockard Channing much lately. She was in The First Wive's Club just for a bit. I should have seen the ending coming where Edie's new boyfriend is Pen's old... oh nevermind, go watch it.

7.5 out of 10
