The result has a drawback common to such movies: too much screen time devoted to the conceit when anyone who has seen the coming-attractions trailer knows it already.
Piles one loony twist on another with dizzying abandon when it's not bogged down drinking up scenery that has been exploited to a fare-thee-well on the big screen. full review
A fast-moving, entertaining bit of silliness that's wrapped around a semi-interesting premise -- and a taut performance by Judd.
The picture itself is so nonsensical you don't understand why anyone would actually make it. full review
Ms. Judd looks too dainty to throw herself into anything more reckless than a manicure. full review
Double Jeopardy is single-minded and engaging thriller storytelling without an afterglow. full review
Visual lushness is almost the only indication that the movie was directed by the same Bruce Beresford who made Breaker Morant and Driving Miss Daisy.
A lukewarm outing that mostly just bops from plot point to plot point.
Beresford's straight-ahead approach to the material, as a heart-tugger, is 180 degrees wrong. full review
A muddled thriller.
It has no subtlety, no shadings, and no suspense, and might as well not have a screenplay.
A generally dumb movie with a smart, appealing, gutsy leading lady.
