Only for Sharon
4 June 2000 | by AngeneerSee all my reviews

So so film about death penalty. Full of cliches and emotional manipulation. Yes, you got it right, a definite tear jerker. So, not for me. But look! Isn't that Sharon Stone? Sure she is, beautiful as always. It's true, I sat trough the whole film just for her.
