It's a mess outside. I thought we'd stay in.
5 October 2009 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

I really wasn't sure whether this was supposed to be a comedy or action flick. Writer Wes Wilson (Christian Slater) falls head over heels for Samantha (Sarah Ann Schultz). Before they get married, she is kidnapped by Isaac (Cuba Gooding, Jr.). Seems she didn't tell Wes all about her past.

Wes has this thing about fast relationships because he soon is shacking with a magazine writer Nicole (Christa Campbell).

Slater seemed to be having a good time; well, he was with Christa Campbell, but Gooding was the main man here. He was just so cool throughout.

Now, Wes might pick another subject to write about as he clearly is not good with relationships.

Things clearly become cartoonish in Spokane. So, maybe this is a comedy after all.

The ending was funny, but it had nothing to do with the story.

I'm just glad to see Campbell in a more meaty role.
