Visitor Comments

Bruce Humphrey: Not in the class of Fatal Attraction et al but nevertheless quite well done and very well acted (by some of my favourite actors/actresses).

Marna Butler: I was very disappointed with this movie. I really expected something more, maybe because this was a Hitchcock remake, and Hitchcock was famous for his excellent movies. This movie, however, was mundane in comparison.

Aruana Zeelie: This was an OK movie. Michael Douglas playing his typical rich, oily tycoon-type role. The kitchen murder scene with Gwyneth Paltrow was quite good. A bit too predictable. Overall: an OK movie.

Chirine Knoesen: Very good and perfect.
