(gb) wrote: This is one is hard to make it through. It falls under the thriller category, but it is very thrilling or suspenseful. The story is dumb and predictable right from the start. Everything is on the table in the first few minutes of the movie. This is just bad writing, which leaves no mystery or complexity to hold the viewer's interest. The acting is not particularly strong, but with such paper thin characters, they have nothing to work with. The main selling point here is seeing Morgan Fairchild swimming, bathing, and changing. It is almost like the writers took those three scenes and wrote a patchwork story around them. Even when it comes to showcasing their eye candy the movie lacks skill. The scenes that highlight Fairchild's looks lack style. She does not vulnerable enough to invoke tension and suspense, like a good thriller should, nor does it titillate or steam things up in a memorable fashion. At least things pick up a little near the end, as the main character fights back. Even then, it is highly predictable and exhibits unskilled direction.

Unfortunately, watching this now as an adult and as a film student, I was so disappointed to find out that this film does not hold up at all. Some jokes still work, some really don't. When the filmmakers give a little bit of time between each joke for the audience to laugh but all you hear is complete silence, it's really awkward. Heather Graham, let's talk about her. Like most bond girls she's parodying, she is drop dead beautiful. Her acting on the other hand can be cringeworthy. All in all, mentioning some of the jokes with your friends at a bar will garner more laughs then actually watching the movie.
