REVIEWS

Review by WC Rolf (posted on 12-Mar-2008)

Interesting for being so bizarre: Nicole Kidman is astoundingly gorgeous and plays the part of the outrageously machiavellian/homicidal heroine to a "T" with her unique spin. All of the characters are well-cast. Wayne Knight is always perfect. Illeana Douglas plays a perfect concerned/skeptical sister to Matt Dillon's dolt- husband to Kidman. Categorically implausible but fun to watch dark comedy.
