Movie Reviews

Insomnia? This is better than Sominex...
SF Bay JR | Los Altos, CA United States | 05/06/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The only reason I purchaed this video was for the appearance of the fabulous Carol Lynley -- whose tiny role was cut to "don't blink or you'll miss it" status.As much as I love both Barbara Hershey and Naveen Andrews (whose doing-the-nasty scene atop the hood of the taxi was the only thing that perked me up for a few brief moments), I can't find a single thing to recommend the rest of the movie, which is simply long, slow, and mesmerizing in its pointlessness. I don't know if the problem is in the writing or the direction -- I was too glazed over by the end credits to make a sound judgment.Worth it only if you need to complete your video collection for one of the aforementioned stars -- or if sleeping pills just don't work for you."
Oh, dear...what were they thinking?

"Who greenlighted this dreadul spin on THELMA & LOUISE meets ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE!?? The wasted talents of Barbara Hershey and Carol Lynley are only the top of the list of problems with this one... Poor direction, sloppy Script Supervision and overall pointlessness make this entirely forgettable. .. Bizarre!"
