Problem with films like this is that despite their many bad points, including plot holes which just seemed to make matters worse, they do sometimes contain serviceable qualities. Which is why I never tend to favor the inclusion of many 0/10's in my reviews. Much like my general philosophy on life, I like to judge all films according to the merits of its final product, but not without acknowledging the separate parts that go into creating that entire compilation. In other words, I try to see something good in everything, and despite not enjoying this movie as a whole, I liked some of the camera-work, truly enjoyed Jason Priestley's spirited cameo, was never really bored and definitely toss kudos the way of Judd and McGregor. Does the ending suck? Yes. Does the movie try too hard to be cool, dark, sexy and deep without having much to say? You bet. All in all, I would say that this cinematic mess is a nice try, but no cigar. See it for Judd, her sexy character, McGregor playing the shy guy, the shot of Judd's boobies, or K.D. Lang trying to act. But don't see it if you're looking for a deep character study or thrills, cause the only reason you'd find yourself at the edge of your seat in this flick, would be to beat a hasty retreat to the exits.
