Strait-laced Rose breaks off relations with her party girl sister, Maggie, over an indiscretion involving Rose's boyfriend. The chilly atmosphere is broken with the arrival of Ella, the grandmother neither sister knew existed.
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. Panicked, Nathalie hides the body but as everyone finds out it just leads to more trouble as they try to dispose of the body and eventually discover what really happened to her ex.Written by
I was pleasantly suprised with this movie, because I didn't expect it to be GREAT. But it was, the film is smart, sexy, funny and thrilling. You'll love Cameron Diaz and the storyline is marvellous. Black comedies don't get much better than this.
Diaz plays Natalie, who is happily married to older-crinkly George (Harvey Keitel). Everything is perfect until Natalie's old boyfriend (Billy Zane) shows up while George is out on a fishing trip. As if sleeping with him isn't bad enough, Natalie finds the guy dead and naked on a table. Who knows what happened? Our Nat's doesn't have time to find out, she must hide the body and look ship-shape before George returns!
Unfortunately, Keitel is miscast and should play Natalie's father, and the story sometimes gets silly, but overall, thats the fun of it!
My rating : 8/10.
