30 minutes in to the movie, Julia Waters is shown sleeping on the couch, and you can see her right hand (not covered by the blue blanket); when her husband walks in to the room, her hand is covered by the blue blanket, but a second later when he sits down next to her, her right hand is exposed again.

A mediocre movie at best. The plot has promise kidnapping, adultery, and a psychic FBI agent but something falls apart in the execution of the concept for a film into an actual theatrical event. Must be the screen writing. The story drags at times and it seems like an eternity before the heroes can figure out what the viewer has already determined as obvious. And that is with the aid of a psychic detective the scenes where she senses what has occurred are interesting but do not result in moving the storyline forward by leaps and bounds. But then the summing up at the end dumps a whole lot of facts on the viewer that seems to come from nowhere. Then too there is the parallel plot of medical problems with the heroine that remains unresolved at the end.
Let's review what is good about the movie. Shauna Black is certainly nice to look at but one can only wish that Laura Vandervoort would have had a larger part. The "ending" that opens the movie is revealed to be an incomplete truth about three quarters the way through and the real ending could have been a real show stopper. Jennifer Beals does yeoman's work with the material she has been handed she deserves better. Finally the movie yields the best-dressed software company secretary in many years.
Not much to recommend here.
