A Gina Gershon film
16 January 2016 | by welambert01See all my reviews

If you are a Gina Gershon's fan this is the movie for you. The film tries to hard, you are never disappointed when Ms Gershon on screen.

No one plays crazy/troubled like Ms Gershon, with the exception of Ms Leigh. I forget the author, he once stated you can pick the best actor or supporting actor performance for the Oscars, you are always wondering what they are doing off screen. This movie by any standard is not Oscar worthy, but you do wonder what Ms Version is doing off screen.

The supporting cast is adequate, it is Ms Gershon performance which stands above. Rory Cochrane is pedestrian and his character as the naive innocent rookie is standard, actually caring for him: you don't. Ron Silver: you seen one performance you seen them all. Alison Eastwood: I keep waiting for the one performance to separate her from other actresses, this is not the role or performance.

The plot: A naive man becomes involved with a trouble exciting woman.

Similar movies: Body Heat meets Basic instinct.

Worth a late night.
