Though misguided, the desperate actions taken by Kyra (Pfeiffer) is not unheard of. It is a sad commentary on the hopelessness of being a divorced and unemployed older woman in our society: "It's just hard out there right... Especially I'm no spring chicken. I mean, you know how hard I've worked, and it wasn't my fault that, you know, they downsized me out of a job... I have tried everything... and am reduced to handing out flyers on parked cars. And praying every day that I even have that." Unfortunately, other than the star power of Pfeiffer and Sutherland, the film lacks fresh material and too gloomy to be enjoyable.

Nonetheless, the film has vocal fans:

This movie started slow and dark. I was looking for something lighter and fast.

A bad movie not saved by good acting. The "sound effects " are especially annoying.

Slow, boring & always filmed in the dark.

Michelle Pfeiffer is one of the most underrated actresses of our time. She did a tremendous job in this movie. I felt the desperation in her choices. Great job.
