Wise one of the best...
20 October 2002 | by simguy10See all my reviews

this movie is a slow starter but for anyone who has half a brain they would see this was a good movie. at times you would think it was slow because at parts it was but at many parts it was a good solid movie. As for the acting it was great Mira Sorvino as always did her best and met high standards. Mariah Carey she is showing major potential.Melora Walters topped off the trio, in this movie these three talented women make this movie. and if you can't see that you should get a cat scan. This movie is an A- in my book!
