Product Description

Bridget Fonda (JACKIE BROWN, LITTLE BUDDHA) and Kiefer Sutherland (DARK CITY, A TIME TO KILL) head an all-star cast in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller! After blacking out in a violent domestic battle, Jimmy (Fonda) awakens in the hospital to learn that her abusive husband, Frank, has died in a fiery crash ... and that she is the prime suspect! As the police focus on building their case against Jimmy, she uncovers evidence indicating that Frank may not only still be alive, but getting away with murder! With Penelope Ann Miller (AWAKENINGS, CARLITO'S WAY) and Steven Weber (T.V.'s WINGS, LEAVING LAS VEGAS) adding memorable performances, you'll be riveted to the growing suspense as Jimmy, in a daring escape from police custody, races toward a final confrontation with justice and revenge!

3.0 out of 5 stars C'mon people! It's not THAT bad. Feb. 5 2002
Format:DVD
Let's get something out of the way first. Is this a really good movie? Well, uh, no. It's a potboiler with plenty of cliches and lots of implausible plot turns. But then, I didn't think I was getting Hitchcock when I rented it. This is a B movie, and like cheap wine and seedy beach motels, B movies have an honest job to perform. The job of a B movie, far as I'm concerned, is to hold my interest and keep me entertained without making me groan or roll my eyes too often. That's what I needed when I watched this (long day at work) and that's what I got. And I've been much more bored by (and put off by the pretensions of) movies with much higher ratings.
As for Bridget Fonda's performance, seems to me there's another way to read it. Abuse makes some people numb. Bridget Fonda's Jimmy seemed to me to be a fairly plausible depiction of a certain kind of abuse victim. Seemed to me that there were a few nice touches -- the scene in the kitchen after she's missed picking Frank up; the scene in the motel room just before the end.
No one's likely to nominate this film for any awards. But as far as I'm concerned, I got my $... worth. That doesn't always happen went I rent a movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than mediocre Jan. 20 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Worse than mediocre thriller about an abused wife who goes on the lam after she is linked circumstantially to the death of her husband and sister. Determined to prove that her husband is alive she follows leads across the state, her peril increasing at each stop. Chasing after her are the traditional 'good-cop' and 'bad-cop' pair of partners. One is convinced of her innocence the other more interested in closing the case and getting home. This pair is often able to corner their suspect but never quite to capture her. All the main players meet up in a remote town in the desert and the truth begins to unfold with deadly consequences for some.
Wow! This was a bad movie. The lead acted as if she was tranquilized, The cops couldn't find a suspect if he or she is in the police station (this happens twice) and everyone else is as one-dimensional as can be. Avoid this one at all costs.

4.0 out of 5 stars BRIDGET HAS NEVER BEEN BETTER! Jan. 11 2000
Format:DVD
For those of you who saw last year's "Lake Placid" & thought Bridget Fonda can't act her way out of a paper bag let me reccomend "BREAK UP"! I believe it's her best performance to date!
She is totally believable as "Jimmy Dade", a woman whose marriage has fallen apart to the extreme! You can't help but be glued to your seat as she is put through a nightmare and a half as she battles the odds to survive .......the BREAK UP!
The movie has everything: Drama! Suspense! Humor! Great supporting Cast: Keifer Sutherland, Steven Weber, Penelope Ann Miller, Tippi Hedren(!), & Hart Bochner as "Frank Dade", the husband!

I can't believe it. Sutherland, FOnda and Ann-Miller, altough not big stars, are, without any doubt, very respectable actors to make such a lousy picture. Maybe the director is to blame, for having extracted such sleepy performances from the actors. Ann-Miller's character is totally empty, no purpose at all. Fonda is totally unconvincent as the deaf beaten woman. Kiefer Sutherland seems to be only waiting for his paycheck and his partner cop (don't know his name), who acts as the "bad cop", is ludicrous.
