(out of 5)
In the middle of a possibly fatal car crash, Richard Gere contemplates the two women in his life, a sexless marriage to Sharon Stone and a loveless affair with Lolita Davidovich. While his car spins out of control against the steely gray Vancouver landscape, he feels forced to decide which woman to stay with. Davidovich is sexy and spontaneous as his fun lover, while Stone proves quite amply that she can do a good Grace Kelly as the frigid wife. Unfortunately, this project is all wrong, with Mark Rydell’s unimaginative direction killing all good dramatic possibilities and the dreadful screenplay making mincemeat of the Claude Sautet film that inspired it (Les Choses De La Vie to be exact).
