My Thoughts:
I must admit that I did not figure this murder mystery out until the end.  Lots of “potential” suspects throughout as the plot unfolds.  A good story, great acting and plenty of suspense keeps you interested from beginning to end.  True to reality, there are no “nice” people in any of the main roles, so you won’t really want to “get into anyone’s skin” which gives you a slightly different perspective than most mysteries.  Halle Berry and Giovanni Ribisi were excellent in their roles, but I really didn’t care for Willis in this movie.  His constant smirking just started to bother me after awhile.  He was just a bit too smug, especially since his wife and lesbian administrative assistant were supposed to be watching him like a hawk.
It was entertaining and interesting.  A keeper.
