Then they schedule through e-mail a next encounter in New York; in the morning, Jonathan calls Claire in the cell phone and she realizes that the man on her bed is a complete stranger. Sooner the man stalks Claire and introduces himself to her as Simon ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Nothing New
22 June 2008 | by hiteshrawatSee all my reviews

Well this movie turned out what I'd like to say as the usual cause there was nothing in the movie which I can say I felt new. The basic story is something I have seen a lot and this made the movie so unexciting. I saw the whole just to find out where it differs from the usual.

The only difference was the rich women finds a man identical to her husband and thus does "it" with him without knowing that he isn't the right man and when she finds the fact that he isn't his hubby then she asks him to leave but till now this man converts to a stalker and psychopath. Then the usual what you can think of easily.

Yea the only think I liked about the movie was there was a really good foreplay scene.
