Quotes

Alex Cross: There are about a dozen predators operating in California now. There's one; male Caucasian, probably early thirties. He's known as the Gentleman Caller. They've been onto him for over a year. And what I realized last night was that his abductions, they follow the ones here by about ten days to two weeks. Matter of fact, it was exactly ten days after Naomi disappeared that a pretty black coed disappeared from UCLA.

User Reviews

A bit gruesome and abusive, but Freeman is great, a routine but decent film
14 August 2010 | by secondtakeSee 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.
