Excellent
26 November 1998 | by tomchickSee all my reviews

I think the movie is really awesome!! The setting is wicked and Pasty Kensit can really act. At first I didn't like her 'cos she's married to Liam Gallagher (WHAT A HOTTIE!!) I think she's a really good actress. The story was very interesting. It was very entertaining. It got some really bad reviews, but I really liked it 'cos the whole concept of the movie was very Sherlock Holmes/Alfred Hitchkock like. Also my fav movies are Horrors and Thrillers. I also like comedy. But I really enjoyed this movie.
