  1. Something in Hutton's wounded puppy look always communicates an untapped intelligence or wasted potential, both of which are perfect for this role.

    OK so I cannot issue a full review as I stopped watching at 59 minutes in, had seen enough to realize my life did not need to waste a furtherOK so I cannot issue a full review as I stopped watching at 59 minutes in, had seen enough to realize my life did not need to waste a further 50 minutes watching this dated flick.

    Would I recommend, maybe in 1996,..then again most likely not ever.

    Portman, Plimpton and O'Donnell make the film. The only one of Portman's films I've seen that measures up to The Professional.
