Movie Reviews

Really great dark comedy
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like this genre, you'd have to agree that this is a fantastic dark comedy. It's not slapstick or gross-out--just an interesting story with lots of irony and lots of twists. I loved this movie because it's so unpredictable and things go from bad to worse all because of a questionable decision made at the beginning of the story. This is not "the greatest movie ever made" (see earlier review), but it definitely doesn't stink. It's very clever and you will probably want to see it again to pick up on some of the subtleties. I was very pleasantly surprised because I hadn't heard of it at the theaters and yet it was such a treat to watch. In my opinion, this was much more enjoyable and creative than There's Something About Mary. In fact, I think it's Cameron Diaz's best movie. If you like her work, you owe it to yourself to rent it. Harvey Keitel is also excellent as the husband.And if you're reading this Cameron, will you marry me? :-)"

"I cant beleive im the first person to review this film. Its so about time it was released on DVD. Well Art House movies dont always get my attention but this flick is brilliant. Harvey Keitel and Cameron Diaz dazzle in the story about a high profile judge who weds a previous defendant in one of his court cases, though she is at least 30 years his junior!! Things just seem to get tougher for Diaz as the movie goes on to hide her ex (dead)lover in their house on a beautiful island off the Boston coast.
The scenery is fantastic, the acting superb, this movie will take you away from the everyday. Soundtrack is excellent. Enjoy"

"Most Enjoyable, with excellent performances from Harvey and Cameron Diaz. Well worth watching. The photographic work and locations are also pleasing to the eye"

"Interesting thriller that starts out fairly decent but gets confused and muddled and really unbeliveable toward the end. For the Die-Hard Cameron fan only. (Come to think of it, what guy isn't?)"
