The black sheep of a wealthy Tulsa family comes back to a world that he had walked away from, only to return and get pulled in to a tale of blackmail with his ex-high school sweetheart’s drug dealer husband. While attempting to help the only witness to a murder he gets wrapped up in a world of revenge, deceit and redemption, starring James Spader, Eric Stultz and Deborah Kara-Unger. Cameron Diaz is billed as one of the stars of this movie and for the approximately 3 minutes she is in this mov…e she is the best part. This movie has a plot that never really seems to go anywhere and after the first half an hour you are not sure if you really care where it is going.
Image quality is an average full screen transfer with good contrast and punchy colors. There are very noticeable edge enhancements through the whole movie; this is very noticeable in the darker scenes in the movie.
This film is not old (1997), and still Artisan has chosen to forfeit a 5.1 audio track, instead releasing this title in 2.0 stereo. The audio is decent with no real issues other then the fact that it is not in 5.1.
The only thing this disc offers in the way of special features is a pretty pathetic photo gallery.
Artisan in the past couples of years have released some excellent movies; two come to mind, The Minus Man and The Limey. This movie unfortunately is not in the same league as these other films, as it comes across as an attempt to cash in on Cameron Diaz’s name and recent fame. This movie was very disappointing; there are much better ways to spend an evening then watching this.
