When a man selects a mail order bride, he is surprised to see the beauty who appears before him.

Approximately 4 minutes of sexually explicit material has been cut from cable showings, even on the late-night showings on non-commercial premium cable channels. Both R-rated and Unrated editions have been released on Region 1 DVD. The original theatrical release did contain explicit sex scenes, but as currently shown on cable, every time someone is about to go to bed with someone else, the scene fades out and returns to the same locale the next morning. In the original version, Julia's first sexual encounter with Luis is graphically shown, as is their encounter when he finds her in the hotel. See more »
Dispite the critics dislike of the film, I have to say that its problably the best dramatic flick I've seen this year. I especially
enjoyed the acting. I have to say it was beautifully directed and the screenwriter did an amazing job to hold all that together. Angelina's best film to date has to be this one. Antonio Banderas was just mindblowing. The set design was great. The movies topic on a mailbride's secret motives and a good intentioned man with a good mix in characters. I reccomend this to anyone in a start os a serious relationship.
