Storyline

A woman in a slip is at her dressing table getting ready for a night out as her husband paces nervously. He's thinking back 30 years when, as a young man, he paid a visit to a pawnshop, a Nixon poster on the wall, a prostitute plying her trade outside. As he works up the courage to tell her whatever is eating at him, the flashbacks show a sleazy salesman pitching a necklace with a diamond-studded pendant. Back in the bedroom, he screws his courage to the sticking point and tells her the truth, as a fly buzzes annoyingly in the background. Are karmic forces at work? Will the sole of a shoe meet the soul of a heel? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Too clever by half
7 December 2004 | by katoolishSee all my reviews

Daryl Hannah has very little to do in this featurette, except look puffy, but this is a drolly written, well acted gem of a "movie". I really enjoy Amazon's theater feature, particularly the end credits in which the props are listed in order of appearance among the cast list, with one-click links should you wish to purchase them. "Careful what you wish for" is one of the better offerings to date. While it is not a Christmas story per se,it fits well with the season. The ending is too perfect to discuss without spoiling the surprise, but what a lovely little Christmas gift this is, a really positive message about the meaning of giving and love and revenge. Even Grinches will like it.
