Oy, a co-worker lent me this one saying that it was a pretty good thriller. I can only deduce that she hasn't seen very many thrillers as this was pretty much tripe. The story is about a girl named Catherine (Katie Holmes) who is stressed out about exams and completing her thesis and all of that good stuff. Things go from bad to worse when her old boyfriend shows up after 2 years of being absent. This is the sort of thing that offers no thrills and sadly barely anything happens...I really wanted most of the characters dead. You can see twists a mile away and truly it felt like nobody involved really gave a rat's behind about the film and neither do I.

Availability:  On DVD
