User Reviews

 
As contrived and convoluted as the title.
9 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

The only recommendation for this film is the acting of Holly Hunter, and to a lesser extent that of Cameron Diaz. Otherwise, you can spend your time more enjoyably and profitably taking that time to listen to a real woman.
