In this dark comedy, a supreme court judge (George) and his very young wife (Nathalie) are on vacation at her family's summer home on an island. When the caretaker, her childhood pal, Lance, takes George on a fishing trip an old flame (Kent) shows up to surprise Nathalie while she's alone. After a night of drinking Nathalie awakes to find Kent, naked and dead in her bed, just as her husband and Lance are arriving.

Strong Recommendation
20 December 1998 | by Scream-11See all my reviews

This is the funniest movie I've seen in a long time. Cameron Diaz is perfect in her role as Nathalie, and as the movie progresses, all the tiny threads to the plot weave themselves together flawlessly to create an unforgettable climax. I can't recommend this film strongly enough.
