“I read quite a few reviews around the time this film was released and they were all very negative towards it. Donu0026#39;t ask me why I rented it (probably in a moment of maddness) cos I had very low expectations of what it was going to be like but actually I didnu0026#39;t think it was that bad a film… I like Benicio Del Toro – if you donu0026#39;t like him or canu0026#39;t get to grips with the way he speaks etc then your probably instantly going to hate this film – I think he is an interesting character in real life and I think he made this film a little more interesting too… Silverstone was just basically Silverstone – I feel sorry for her its been pretty much down hill since Clueless, shes always playing these richgirl/brat characters there is no real variety..but shes ok – nothing special – Walken was as usual solid as a rock, Harry Connick Jnr cracked me up for some reason I thought he was funny! Plot – I could see where it wanted to go but it didnu0026#39;t quite get there – it wasnt quite clever enough – I donu0026#39;t think it was a fabulous film by any means but compare it to Batman and Robin? Speed 2? Its not as bad as that! Rent it if you are a Benicio/Alicia/Walken fan but otherwise youu0026#39;ll probably just feel robbed…”
