I love the cast, love the setting, love the idea. The actual outcome was OK.
I needed something to watch late at night while I finished up some extra work, so I wasn't going in thinking I was gonna watch the best movie ever, but because of the cast and reviews I was expecting a little bit more.
The writing wasn't bad, and the pacing was slow at times, but that I can forgive (I actually like slower paced movies) it was the dialogue.
I mean, come on, Christian Slater can't even get some of those lines out without sounding stilted. I actually preferred the first half of the movie to the second half, specifically because Marissa Tomei's character did all the talking (Adam doesn't speak much). Don't get me wrong, the dialogue for everybody was bad, he just couldn't pull it off as well as Rosie and Marissa.
Overall, it was great to play in the background, but man oh man I would not have been able to get through this movie if I hadn't been mostly preoccupied with work.
Oh and don't get me STARTED on the scene where Adam saves Caroline. OHMYGOSH it sucked. I understand that they wanted us to feel the danger and suspense (which as a woman, I felt when they first pulled up in their car) and they wanted Caroline to have a reason to get close to Adam but MAN I wish they had done it in any other way. They could've just had her get mugged or something, but no they had to go down the SA route, which is fine, if they had done a better job with it. The scene dragged on WAAY to long and Adam almost comes to late! I had to sit through that!! That scene gets -1000000/5 stars.
Also, everyone kept acting like Adam was such a catch, but he literally BREAKS INTO HER HOUSE at some point in the movie (and then alludes to doing that all the time). He was sweet, but creepy is all I'm saying.
