4.0 out of 5 stars Not a blockbuster, but not bad. June 13, 2002
Matthew is a radio show host, giving Dear Abby ideas and advice to a world that does not include himself. He is unable to follow his own advice, as he goes about creepily stalking his ex-girlfriend, watching while she works, sleeping outside of her house in his car, and being a general pain. His ex claims to be afraid of him, and elicits sympathy and protection from his editor. That is, until Matthew finds someone else, a woman that the movie does not make clear whether or not Matthew really is falling in love with her or just using her to get at his ex. In any case, the plot does thicken, and the tide does turn, as his ex-girlfriend finds herself a little jealous of Matthew's new girlfriend. It is a good plot, and it works, especially when Matthew's ex turns up comatose, badly beaten and might die, while Matthew waits in jail, knowing who did this to her but unable to convince anyone after his own behavior shows him to be obsessed with her. Will the ex-girlfriend live to tell who REALLY did this? You find yourself pleasantly enthralled near the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Samantha Mathis does superior work April 20, 2002
By A Customer
Spurned by his former lover, Matthew sleeps in his car on her street, annoys her by phone, and creepily watches her do hairstyling at her job. He makes his living as a call-in radio host and a relationship columnist for a local alt-weekly paper, but he can't apply his advice to his own life. Eventually his editor gets involved in this drama, as does an actress who is friends with the hairdresser. There's some mixing and matching of couples, some tension and violence, reminiscent of the Neil Labute film "Your Friends and Neighbors", which had a much more interesting plot.
But you can fast-forward if a scene annoys you. There's something more important about this movie than writing that occasionally goes off-course, and that thing is the work of Samantha Mathis. Someday she's going to win some major acting awards, and you're going to want to say you saw the thread of intelligent performing that runs through her portrayals.
What Mathis's character does in this movie is what her previous characters have done so well, and that is to carry on highly believable, organic relationships with other characters. My guess is that when she prepares a scene, she doesn't ask herself how her character would respond to the line that someone else has just spoken; rather, she appears to have mastered the trick of responding TO THAT SOMEONE. When her struggling-actress character interacts with the charismatic but troubled radio host, her longings and her reluctance do not merely derive from her character's insecurities, but seem to incorporate her memories of all her past dealings with him, plus everything she has learned about him from their mutual friend. I'd bet that takes a lot of doing to get it right, especially when you consider that movies are rarely filmed in the order of the plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting February 25, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie was not a movie I would have paid for but I did. So the star guy was actually a good actor. The movie didn't achieve what it was striving for, but it achieved conveying what it was trying to achieve striving for.

I actually liked this movie and it was nice to see Samantha Mathis in it. It's kind of strange, but you don't really figure out what's going on until about the end, which is good. That means I didn't figure the out the plot beforehand, and allowed for the weird twists and turns. It's about obsession, mind games, deceipt and be careful who you trust because the good guy isn't always the good guy, and the seemingly bad guy isn't always the bad guy. Since I've been there personally...this was a great theme. Be careful who you trust.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting. January 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This was well acted, directed, and mostly well written. In terms of the story line, I did have a little trouble believing the "about face" of the two male characters. But mostly thought it was a decent film worth viewing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh well..... April 17, 2002
Let me be honest. I rented this movie for some obvious reasons: 1. All the other films I wanted to see were checked out; 2. The title was kind of promising; 3. The DVD cover didn't look bad either; 4. I like Gretchen Mol (and since that was put as the last reason, I didn't really expect a lot from her, much less from this movie). So I'm saying "oh well" and giving it 2 stars just for her. But if you don't like her as much as I do, and if you are serious about a thriller (good cast, good director etc.) there's always "Fatal Attraction" for you. Want a thriller with a little romance? Okay, take "Someone To Watch Over Me". More twists and turns? Maybe "Kiss The Girls" or "The Bone Collector" could be entertaining. Not erotic enough? Hmmm, "Basic Instinct" should be the answer for you.... Well, a lot of nice stuff out there to choose from. So please be lenient with this [movie]. Although I wasted 90 minutes on it, I was pleased to see Gretchen Mol. I'm gonna pre-order "Forever Mine" to see more of her.
