Movie Reviews

Great entertainment, terrible film.
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is an incredibly bad film. However, it's good for a laugh if you've got some alcohol. Be on the lookout for jerky camera pans, extremely...slow...dialogue..., emotionless characters, pointless scenes, corny lines, school-play-style acting, the big white car that can be in two places at once, and a ridiculous plot that meanders its way slowly towards a pathetic (or inspired slapstick, depending on how you view it)ending. Extra points if you can keep track of how many times men tell Heather Graham she is beautiful, and bonus points for the total number of times Heather Graham (sorry Heather) bites her lip and looks pensive. Seriously, there is so much bad acting in this film, Heather Graham is just the most obvious target. For the big money round, study the party scene front door which mysteriously opens and closes for alternate shots. By the way, for those of you who don't understand how credits work...Heather Graham isn't listed in the opening credits and is in almost every scene BUT Balthazar Getty, Max Perlich and Carrie Anne Moss were listed in the opening credits and managed an impressive 10 minutes between them (in fact, I don't know how BG managed to stay out of the EXTRAS pile listed at the end - probably because he isn't a member of the crew or related to the producer). If you want to make your own films this is a must-see for how not to do it."

"What a surprise. Heather Graham has a good performance. Heather lives in a world of fear and hallucinatory madness. The ending is very shocking. A fun and suspensful puzzle that is very entertaining."

"A very strange, almost stock version of a David Lynchesque miscast. That said, I liked it anyhow. Heather Graham plays a young widow who has witnessed her husband's murder and the murderer himself commit suicide(I think they were more than buddies wink wink.) There is no determined timeframe thereafter, but she is in a daze and living in an apartment alone and randomly and promiscuously engaging in sex with random guys, oh and one girl too. Well, the sex always revolves around her getting orally surfeited but that's of no matter is it? It's Heather Graham being sexed up! Anyhow somebody begins to stalk her and and and the police won't help and and and she keeps getting beaten and and and followed around by a big white car etc. Finally the mysterious stalker is exposed! I'm giving it 4 1/2 stars on H. Graham alone being so lovely and just acting like a complete lulu. Her hair is wild, her demeanor is aloof to the things which don't interest her(which is everything) and she crouches over some guy lying on the floor, sans panties and rubs herself into his face. Even when she is at work typing, her shoulders bobbing and the doe-eyes are ghostly round, she is entrancing. I hope H. G. isn't a real-life Hollywood trollop because she sure made me buy into the movie on her presence alone. I even liked her in Say It Isn't So, a romantic comedy, which would make me gag normally. So what I am saying is that I am whoring out any objectivity principally on her aesthetics. But honestly, the movie wasn't bad either."
Random but cool

"The movie was at the same time extremely scary but hysterically funny. The neurotic sensibility in Graham's performance is similar to Mia farrow in Rosemary's baby. It left a really deep impression on me since the whole film was so roughly presented and sharply scary. The film is so sharp and rough it even transcends into something really justifiable. Looking back on it I really loved it and how it could scare me like no other film (not anne rice, not from dusk till dawn, not even the baby of Rosemary.)"
