Story was underdeveloped
25 May 2002 | by stevenlisaSee all my reviews

We went and saw the movie together, and both came away with the same impression. The movie focused too much on the affair, and did not develop what should have been a great scenerio after Richard Gere confronts the young lover. The affair, which was what the movie focused on, was impressive. And you got some idea of what it was that drove her in her obsession. However, we felt that what happened after would have served the audience with much more to remember than just steamy sex scenes and the the uncomfortable feeling you got from watching a partner destroy the trust and honesty in her relationship. We both however did like the ending. From watching some promotional interviews, Richard Gere said there were a couple of endings shot for the movie, and he personally liked the ending that finally was used. We liked it also. Anyway, if you haven't seen it yet, might want to wait till it hits video. And then, enjoy the guilty pleasures of the affair (if you can) and don't expect to feel satisfied when you are done watching it.
