Movie Review by Denise
August 13th, 2007

Creepy, yes, believable, not quite

This film was a bit of a thriller, and more than a little creepy and scary, but that's because of Judi Dench. She is the scariest actor I can think of, just by being herself. (Maybe if I could stand Jack Nicholson he could rival).

It was definitely entertaining. A good flick.

I just didn't believe that this woman (Sheba) could fall into her cheating trap. Not just that her life was nice and fine and all that, but to sleep with 15 year old, shouldn't she have been a little more nuts? So the whole time I was supposed to focused on the jealousy, the vengeance, the way the crazy cat lady (Dench) tries to manipulate Sheba, instead I was still thinking "No way. She wouldn't do that. Not only is he 15, but he looks 15 and acts 15. No way."

It did spur an interesting conversation with my boyfriend about what he called the "Linda Tripp" effect (I thought the movie was too far off from what happened to Monica, but an interesting observation nonetheless) and what we would be willing to forgive in relationships and what would be too much.
