Trivia

The overhead shot of a football stadium that many may think of as Durham, North Carolina, is actually Chapel Hill, NC. The football stadium you see is Kenan Stadium, home of The University of North Carolina Tar Heels. What makes this even more recognizable, is just North of the stadium is the famed Bell Tower and Wilson Library dome. The next shot you see is the Duke Chapel Tower on the campus of Duke University in Durham. See more »

A bit gruesome and abusive, but Freeman is great, a routine but decent film
14 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Kiss the Girls (1997)

Not a bad film, "entertaining" in the sense of sitting back and watching an episode of Bones or CSI. It has more development and higher production values, I guess, than television, but really it is a routine film hardly worth thinking too hard about.

Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman have been together for three movies, and they work together well. I'm not sure I see any special chemistry there, and for my money, it's a Morgan Freeman film. He plays a Forensic Psychologist and is all business, not swayed by stupidity. Judd plays a victim at first, and then in an unlikely twist, joins the investigation. The plot is frankly a little predictable, and you keep thinking there will be this giant twist, but there isn't. You simply don't know exactly who the perp is.

Ah, well, it propels itself all the same, a fun distraction.
