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.
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.
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!

Everything is this movie seems out of place. The old cliche "good cop-bad cop", lived by Sutherland and his pal doesn't work at all! Read morePublished on May 4 2000 by PATHERSON
