"I absolutely loved it! I'm not into the thriller action movies but I was flipping through the channels today and I came to this movie on USA. I decided to watch it, little did I know that I was going to be so absorbed in it. I loved the way the story always had you thinking you knew who the murderer was but then the police found a new suspect. And speaking of police this movie was especially great because of Cadet Cutie Tony(Kevin Dillon)and Alicia Silverstone,who executed her catholic school-girl innocence well. Oh and the murderer turns out to be . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . you think I'm going to tell you,watch the movie and you'll find out!"
Almost a Fine Thriller

"An enjoyable movie that needed a good editor. If you can tolerate some slow parts, and ignore the sophomoric and silly dream sequences that clutter up the movie, it's very well acted by Silverstone and Dillon. Bottom line: it's a one hour movie wrapped in a 94 minute package, but the one hour inside is pretty darn good."
Above average thriller

"This is a good thriller despite the fact many critics panned it. Alicia Silverstone is excellent as the virginal Mary Giordano who wants to follow in her dead father's footsteps and become a police officer. Secretly investigating some recent teenage murders Alicia finds herself in mortal danger from a madman who knows more about her than she realizes. Billy Nunn is great as a cynical older Cop who knew Alicia's father and tries to tell the eager young woman she shouldn't romanticize crime. Aided and abetted by a sexy young cop played well by Kevin Dillon, Alicia is drawn into a web of deceit and desire that just might kill her if she is not careful. There is a wonderful sting in the tale that will shock you (if you don't work it out first) and the plot and acting is first rate. Another underrated film that deserves more merit than it is given."

"High school girl who wants to be a detective like her father goes in over her head when she gets involved with one of the new deputies and ends up sticking her nose where she wishes she hadn't. Nice little thriller that flaunts it's name too many times in the beginning. Silverstone delivers as usual and the carnival scene, which is shorter than the video box describes, is the highpoint."

"I like most of the movies Alicia Silverstone is in. I thought this movie was entertaining but i can see it as just a tv movie, im not suprised it wasnt in the theatres. It is probably on the same level or a little bit better than the babysitter which also starred Alicia silverstone. Movie is about a girl who is fascinated and interested in crime and detective work. Soon a fellow classmate is murdered and she starts to investigate the case along with the police officer played by ( matt dillon). While shes investigating signs are pointing to dillan as the killer and then things get worse from there. This was a pretty good thriller and if you like this i recomend the crush and the babysitter as well. Overall good story."
