A lot more storyBy michell944 (5 reviews) from Leeds , 27 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I spent a good portion of the film wandering if Sofia Coppola had watched this pre-Lost In Translation. The set-up is certainly similar; two women (instead of a guy and a girl) meet up in a hotel and impact upon each others lives. This isn't as powerful as LIT but it does move a bit quicker and there's more story to the story. Good acting from the two leads heading a small cast. Enjoyable film!

confusing endingBy lisawoods87 (40 reviews) from Huddersfield , 15 Nov 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHidei enjoyed this film. it was a different darker side to Stiles than in previous films i have seen her in and Channings acting is great as always, however the ending confused me.. not sure if it ever actually happened or if it was a delusional mind of a damaged girl
Disappointing FilmBy . (96 reviews) from London , 23 Apr 2011It just didn't do it for me. There should have been a tighter script, perhaps more should have happened to the guy, but then I cannot comment without giving it away.
Sorry but I just about made it to the end.
disapointing, would not watch again.By a customer from London , 29 Jan 2011Shot nicely but no engaging content whatsoever. the portrayal of the 'female' character is weak and undermining although the acting is good. the storyline is flimsy and unbelievable. crappy, male chauvinistic stuff.
It was a good job I rented this filmBy a customer from KIDDERMINSTER , 26 Sep 2010This was a film I thought would be just alright but it was better than expected, becoming a pychological thriller keeping you guessing to the end, with good performances from all.
Not at all dated since being released in 2001
.Definately worthy of renting or buying, A close resemblence to Bound.
Not the best film....By a customer from London , 25 Mar 2009I ordered this film having remembered vaguely seeing it on the tv. I can see why i didn't really pay it that much attention.
Stockard Channing, who was obviously great in Grease and the West Wing, just seems a bit wooden. She is, however, slightly better than Julia Stiles who isn't great.
The psuedo-lesbian vibe that Channing and Stiles try to create is both creepy and laughable. The plot is unoriginal and promises good things but never quite delivers, leaving you feeling empty. Like your time has been wasted.
I would only suggest this film for hard core Channing or Stiles fans or for the person who has, quite literally, seen everything.
