    An entertaining but insubstantial romantic thriller loaded with Euro-chic trappings and no small amount of sex appeal.
  2. A solidly crafted, entertaining melodrama.
  3. You may roll your eyes a bit at the glib, transparent, indie-grunge romanticism.
  4. As skilled, resourceful actors, (Argento and Harris) make...a more believable couple than you would have thought possible.
  5. 50
    A sort of "Pretty Woman" for the underworld.
  6. 50
    B. Monkey is crawling with smart actors saying things they don't quite mean.
  7. 20
    Unfortunately, none of the characters -- despite the film's strong cast -- ever seems worthy of the attention.
