Stone deserves some points for playing a recognizable human being while Davidovich fares less well in an underscripted part, but what sabotages the story altogether is Gere's boundless narcissism.

Tespite the glossiness, it winds up seeming profoundly uneventful, perhaps because the car crash is the story's only real dramatic turn.


Only Stone manages to find any emotional depth in her character, and that's not enough reason to see the film.

Todd McCarthy

This very loose adaptation (acknowledgement of the sources is buried in the end credits) attempts to goose things up here and there, but original's essentially meditative nature is left quite unfulfilled by the new approach and glamour cast.

Chicago Sun-Times

The only thing these characters have to talk about are the problems manufactured for them by the screenplay. No other conversations on any other subject amount to more than filler between crises.

It's a waxen, pretentious bore, and whatever chance it may have had of succeeding is foiled by casting so misguided that it's hard to imagine it wasn't meant as a vicious joke.

Time Out

Less neurotic and sexually charged than usual, Gere digs deep to find the source of his character's chronic indecisiveness.

Strange film that's more perplexing than riveting.

Not bad, I like Richard Gere.
