Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine47.6 - The actors seem ill at ease with one another, and Ejiofer and Kidman fail to generate any sparks even though they are supposed to be secretly in love with one another. The final product lacks a distinctive style and feels akin to an episode of Law & Order. And while the conclusion provides a refreshingly logical spin on the outmoded twist ending, the preceding scenes are too disjointed and bland to be redeemed by a somewhat shocking finale.
