    Slow, characters without charm and a preposterous plot. Depressing and vacuous. A film so contrieved and pretentious only a critic could like it.

    This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I'm not ever that harsh on ratings, but this movie surpassed all of my expectations. Hollow characters, awful dialouge, poor acting (sorry), idiotic premise. It was just plain awful.

  1. Plays largely like a performer's showpiece, with all the showboating and not so surprising character twists that entails, but Stettner comes out the other end with a pleasantly modest and satisfying revelation.
  2. Try to imagine "In the Company of Men" with a feminist twist and you'll have the gist of this fervently acted, ultimately unconvincing drama.
  3. Channing's formidably good -- a career woman in extremis -- but the movie, which was written and directed by Patrick Stettner, otherwise unfortunately resembles a product of the Neil LaBute Finishing School.
