4.0 out of 5 stars Relax and drink your pint ! 12 Dec 2005
Don’t try to see anything logical in that film. It is just a big joke. Some women are like that. All men die around them, kill themselves, kille one another, in one word drop dead. That girl is that type. And she is as innocent as a newborn babe, and yet we will never know who was guilty first, who lied first, who put the poison out first, who overdosed who first, who was cut up into pieces first, who was buried in concrete first, who was drowned first, if any, in one word a real slaughter on a completely deserted island. But how does she manage to attract so many flies to her honeypie ?

3.0 out of 5 stars A gentle helter skelter 12 Jan 2002
By Gordon
Format:VHS Tape
In the beginning there was a gentle tale of two characters amidst a fabulous coastal setting. Then the mayhem begins with almost comic situations and twists - you feel for their dilemmas while cringing at the same time. Well orchestrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great dark comedy 26 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on
If you like this genre, you'd have to agree that this is a fantastic dark comedy. It's not slapstick or gross-out--just an interesting story with lots of irony and lots of twists. I loved this movie because it's so unpredictable and things go from bad to worse all because of a questionable decision made at the beginning of the story. This is not "the greatest movie ever made" (see earlier review), but it definitely doesn't stink. It's very clever and you will probably want to see it again to pick up on some of the subtleties.
I was very pleasantly surprised because I hadn't heard of it at the theaters and yet it was such a treat to watch. In my opinion, this was much more enjoyable and creative than There's Something About Mary. In fact, I think it's Cameron Diaz's best movie. If you like her work, you owe it to yourself to rent it. Harvey Keitel is also excellent as the husband.
And if you're reading this Cameron, will you marry me? :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Head above the rest 7 April 2004
By Nicholas Ellis - Published on
I cant beleive im the first person to review this film. Its so about time it was released on DVD. Well Art House movies dont always get my attention but this flick is brilliant. Harvey Keitel and Cameron Diaz dazzle in the story about a high profile judge who weds a previous defendant in one of his court cases, though she is at least 30 years his junior!! Things just seem to get tougher for Diaz as the movie goes on to hide her ex (dead)lover in their house on a beautiful island off the Boston coast.
The scenery is fantastic, the acting superb, this movie will take you away from the everyday. Soundtrack is excellent. Enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Humor Movie 9 July 2009
By Dee from Gary, Indiana - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love movies that make me laugh and this one did. Harvey Keitel was great and very funny. Cameron Diaz was good too, though I fail to see her "beauty". To me she is very average looking, but good at being ditzy when acting. I never liked Keitel until I saw this movie. It was a movie like "When Bad Things Happen", Diaz having been in that one with Christian Slater, but this one was comedy and irony whereas "When Bad Things Happen" (I hope I have that title correct) was irony and serious. I will watch this one again. Worth the price.

A very quirky black comedy that had me laughing out loud.
I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for a laugh.It is reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock in it's off beat comedic cadence.
