John Heard does an adequate performance playing a psychopath who is able to convey sensitivity and love, yet obviously unable to feel anything of the sort. His entire persona is based on play acting what he thinks others will respond to. However, he would not have been my first choice for the role, since I see him more as a good supporting actor, but lacking the charisma to play such a leading role in a film.
One problem I have with the film is that it does not really explain to the viewer why or how John Heard's character chose to marry the Goldie Hawn character and have a child with her, or for that matter, why he waited six long years before making a move to leave her. Was the marriage some kind of cover? Was there some kind of connection to her profession that would enable him to better perpetrate a theft of valuable museum artifacts? Did he or did he not have an accomplice? Who was he calling before he faked his own death? There just seems a myriad of questions that the film unsatisfactorily addresses, leaving the viewer continually trying to guess what is going on with this guy.
Regardless of these weaknesses in the story, the film still offers the viewer a wonderful film of suspense and mystery, in which we can enjoy seeing Goldie Hawn slowly but surely unravel the mystery and lies surrounding her marriage John Heard's character. All in all, a very enjoyable viewing experience.
