This movie should be exhumed and executed again!
Andrew O'Hehir,  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.
Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
Beresford's straight-ahead approach to the material, as a heart-tugger, is 180 degrees wrong.
Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle  full review
A generally dumb movie with a smart, appealing, gutsy leading lady.
Robert Horton,
It has no subtlety, no shadings, and no suspense, and might as well not have a screenplay.
Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz
A muddled thriller.
Moira MacDonald,
A lukewarm outing that mostly just bops from plot point to plot point.
Jay Carr, Boston Globe
Ms. Judd looks too dainty to throw herself into anything more reckless than a manicure.
Janet Maslin, New York Times  full review
The picture itself is so nonsensical you don't understand why anyone would actually make it.
Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune  full review
A fast-moving, entertaining bit of silliness that's wrapped around a semi-interesting premise -- and a taut performance by Judd.
Ernest Hardy,
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.
Susan Stark, Detroit News  full review
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.
Mike Clark, USA Today
