Reviews


75
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The movie is not intended to be subtle. It is sweaty, candle-lit melodrama, joyously trashy, and its photography wallows in sumptuous decadence.

Chicago Reader - Unnamed
Retained my interest and sympathy -- at least until the nonsensical ending,
63
Chicago Tribune - Michael Wilmington
Jolie and Banderas are two hot actors, in many senses of the word, and their scenes together have a lewd excitement.
60
TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
Ridiculous, yes, but in an eminently watchable way. Most of the plot twists work surprisingly well, and the frequently naked leads work up some genuine chemistry.
50
Austin Chronicle - Marc Savlov
It's not nearly as mediocre a two hours as the trailers would have you think.
