This is a film that offers solid suspense in an above average thriller. Goldie Hawn is terrific in her role of a woman who falls in love with a man, who as it turns out, is not the man who he seems to be. It is refreshing to see Ms. Hawn in a non-comedic role, and she does a good job in an emotionally demanding role outside her usual typecast.

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.

This is definitely one of my wife and my favorite movies. I just wish we could go back again and watch its twisty, surprising plot for the first time. Who would have thought that the bubbly, giggly Goldie Hawn (Wildcats, Private Benjamin, among others) would excel in this serious leading role, assisted by an awesome John Heard as her husband with a dark, mysterious background. I don't want to give away too much of the story; suffice to say, this is a great suspenseful drama. It also has some neat eerie background music. I highly suggest buying this title on DVD and curling up in the dark. Enjoy that first screening!

This is of the creepy genre variety, with lots of tension. One of the things I liked about it is that Adrienne is NOT weak or bubble-headed; that she begins to doubt when she should; that she is angry when she should be angry. She does her detective work; she fights for herself at the end and saves herself at the end (although I don't see how she could have, in her position, shut the elevator cage behind her). And the film really does make you wonder: how many around us are leading double lives? Is the person next to you honest or not?

Despite what it says on hmv.ca - the title Deceived has not been received. I ordered it two months ago and was just informed that I wouldnt get it until late January - little do they know that hmv.com says the release is Feb 14/04. Why dont they figure it out and change the availability - it will not ship in 2-6 weeks cause it doesnt exist! yet.
