  • Reception

    Wesley Morris, a writer for The Boston Globe, liked the film despite what he called silly romance and even sillier suspense. In a review for Philadelphia Weekly, Matt Prigge gave the film a mixed review with a B rating. Roderick Conway Morris, of International Herald Tribune, complimented the performances of the three actors. Roger Ebert gave the film a positive review, saying "Petzold, who also wrote the script, doesn't make level one thrillers, and his characters may be smarter than us, or dumber".
