This is a movie I would never have seen had it not been showing on HBO late one night (after a night out). I was intrigued by the opening sequence and had every intention of channel surfing but I'm glad I didn't. The movie is a series of flashbacks that Vincent Eastman (Richard Gere) is having of the demise of his marriage to wife Sally (played surprisingly well by Sharon Stone) and the budding romance he has with the "other woman" Lolita Davidovich. The flashbacks are very entertaining and pull you in as you wonder what Vincent is going to do. Previous to viewing this film, I never thought much of Sharon Stone as an actor but she acquits herself well in this role. I don't want to give away any vital information and I'm not one to point out little nuances that the director might be adding- but it is a thoroughly enjoyable film. Lolita Davidovich is delightful as the quirky breath of fresh air Vince finds surreptitiously. An added bonus: upon recently returning to this film I was bowled over to see that the once unknown daughter of Vince and Sally was none other than a very young Jennifer Morrison (of House and Once Upon A Time fame).
