“..unmemorable but diverting, and its slickness, modest scale and TV names are perfect for cable sale..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
Review rate : C+

“..the movie has a cat-and-mouse appeal - it's like Hard Candy crossed with a smaller-scale Deathtrap..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
1 of 4

“..goes on much too long and doesn't make one word of sense..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
2.5 of 4

“..can't build a solid thriller out of the lightweight materials at hand..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..a one-joke fizzler, leaving DHP to sashay, role-play, carry on one-sided conversations, and disco-dance on the table with just the right amount of lizardy, half-lidded sangfroid..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]

by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
