Bad leading player
18 March 2008 | by guilfisher-1See all my reviews

I found this to be rather trite and very bad acting on leading lady, Sherilyn Fenn, and her performance. It seemed odd to me that in every scene, including getting out of bed in the morning, that she had perfect make up on, perfect hair do. Throughout the movie she runs around with a frantic look on her face and no make up smudges, even her beauty mark in place. I felt bad for Thomas Gibson, who I like, and Steve Harris, the cop, who had to do scenes with her.

She was that bad. Can you imagine, in real life, what her pillow must have looked like with all that make up covering it?

I also felt the direction was pretty standard with not much offered to viewers. As to the ending, who knows what was real and unreal? To me, I didn't really care. I was hoping they'd lock her up. Again, LMN does their best to make women victors and men losers. But they pick the wrong actresses most of the time to do it.
