I hate, HATE, HATED this movie.
It is like three movies piled onto each other. The first is a well done, Hitchcockian suspense movie that is a modern "Shadow of Doubt." We watch a shady character and watch the pieces fall into place. Then it switches to a M. Night Shamalongadingdong movie where it is all about showing us a clever twist that stretches plausibility – thus breaking from the previous tight plot to be a little fast and loose. Then it turns into a loose and unexplainable Fatal Attraction that makes no sense and leaves you hating everyone and thinking that nothing made sense. It is like when a movie ends up being a dream. You feel that your time with the first part was just wasted and cheated away.
