Charles is a financially successful Chicago advertising director with a sick daughter and a slightly troubled marriage. Charles has a chance encounter with Lucinda, a lovely and quick-witted financial advisor who is also stuck in marital rut. Their chemistry is instant, but their eventual one-night-stand is interrupted by a mugger, who is out to milk Charles for every dollar he's got.
Charles Schine, un homme marié, fait la rencontre, un matin dans le train de banlieue, de Lucinda Harris, une femme d'affaires influente. L'amorce d'une conversation anodine aboutit à un rendez-vous en soirée autour d'un verre. Trop tard pour reculer, les passions enflammées se transforment en une liaison sans lendemain. Puis un étranger surgit dans leur vie, en les menaçant de dévoiler leur aventure secrète et en les attirant par la ruse dans un jeu où émergeront des surprises de plus inattendues.

Is somebody kidding!?!

Vile & surreal. Aside from that, it's like "Cape Fraud" or "The Twit That Rocks The Cradle":
There's no movie here. Never in a million years would anyone make the decisions (many, one after another) that would continue them down the absurd road to the idiotically phony sequences depicted in this film, to "construct" this plot. (And I use the word "plot" very loosely.) That's even overlooking the multiple events that would/could never even remotely happen, to set up this fantasy from hades...

Decent movie.

Reasonably good thriller with lots of plot twists along the way. \\ Owen and Cassel in particular do a very good job, and Aniston does an adequate job.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

the "climax" of this movie came a little early for my taste, however I was surprised how it turned out. Not for the faint of heart, some scenes are graphic - to say the least - but a very good suspence film.

Philippe LaRoche: [Holding Charles against a wall] Man, you ended up in the wrong prison, Charlie!

Charles Schine: LaRoche...

Philippe LaRoche: [smugly] Yeah?

Charles Schine: I CHOSE this prison.

[Schine stabs LaRoche with Winston's shank]
