Michael Douglas plays a celebrated child psychiatrist married to a gorgeous amazon (the talented and underrated Famke Janssen, easily the most beautiful woman in the world), with a six-year old daughter (Sky Cole Bartusiak) who, unlike most child characters in thrillers, is not irritating and cloying. Anyhow, the family's thanksgiving plan are disrupted when the munchkin is abducted in the middle of the night by a gang of jewel thieves (led by the equally talented and underrated Sean Bean). Turns out they need the good doctor to coax out some information from a "schizophrenic" patient (the terrific Brittany Murphy) by the end of the day, or daughter goes bye-bye.
The rest of the flick moves at lightning speed as Dr. Conrad races against time to get the information from the girl. Parallel storylines involving a tough cop (Jennifer Esposito, easily the second most beautiful woman in the world after Famke)who inadverdently finds herself on the trail of the thieves, and Famke Janssen trapped in her apartment because of ber broken leg lend fuel to this already brightly-burning fire of a movie. Best sequence involves intercutting of Jennifer chasing Michael and Brittany, and Famke fighting off a murderous assassin despite her cast. Speaking of Famke's sequence, never before have I cheered when a bad guy got what was coming to him. Moral of the story? A desperate mother will still kick your [butt], leg cast or not. All in all, there never is any doubt about how this movie will all end, but getting there is a thrill ride from hell. Which is what a thriller should aspire to be. This is not rocket science, just rock-solid entertainment.
