Summary: ok I'am an Englishman and I have never heard an English accent sound like this, (north or south) no one sounds......soooo retarded as an american trying to do a London accent(or southern)can't get past the terrible accent's to actually enjoy the film. Alright maight! Gosh bosh one of these sloths trying to imitate one of us.
Don't Think! Shut Down Your Brain! And Enjoy Teri Hatcher

Summary: The great attraction of this DVD certainly is the name of Teri Hatcher. I decided to watch this movie, and I do not know what the writer has in his head while writing such screenplay. The story is so unbelievable and absurd that becomes funny, a comedy full of action. I decided to shut down my brain, do not think in the countless flaws in the script and enjoy the still very beautiful and sexy Teri Hatcher, and in the end I surprisingly had a good time.
Summary: Yes, Teri Hatcher enjoys some nice gun action in this movie, and when her character is allowed to be strong, she has moments where she takes your breath away. But she is too often forced to utter unrealistic (under the circumstances) wisecracking dialogue (like in the scene where she first meets Rob Lowe), or even more painful "serious" - "emotional" dialogue.
Summary: The plot is, from beginning to end, so mind-bogglingly ridiculous that you might suspect it was deliberate - but the dialog is fantastic, and Teri Hatcher is an absolute joy - Desperate Housewives is no fluke. In this movie she grabs her role and runs with it, never flinching amidst the madness - whether making sarcastic remarks or threatening with a gun, she is absolutely 100%, and she makes the movie pure joy.
Summary: What happened with this movie? It starts pretty good (minding is a B-series tv production). Very a-la 24, Jack Bauerish. Then when you get to the half, even if you were trying to still believe its contrivances, the storyline becomes so incredibly stupid and fragmented you start thinking you must have dozed off at some point and missed something. **SPOILERS AHEAD** They plan a scam, goes fine, and then suddenly the bad guy henchman jumps at them out of nowhere.
